Envelope filter on The Grudge

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ndrly, Mar 11, 2008.


  1. Listen to Tool's "The Grudge". At about 4:12 to 4:25, it sounds like Justin Chancellor is using an envelope filter on his bass.

    I know it sounds very subtle, and I know that Justin Chancellor hadn't got his Guyatone BR-2 around the time of Lateralus, but if I were ever to cover The Grudge, I'd probably use an envelope filter. I could set it to "low-pass", and set the other knobs whatever way would suit me.

    If anyone's got a Q-Tron or any other filter pedal, do you think you could try out the section I was talking about?
     
  2. That's a flanger. He used the Boss BF-2.
     
  3. Yea, it's his flanger.
     
  4. +1 He speaks the truth
     
  5. Alright. Can anybody provide any clips of themselves playing that part from the Grudge? With effects?
