    I've heard it twice and I'm curious about what it is. The first time I heard it was in the "Red Room Trip" section of the Incubus DVD that came with Morning View, and the second time I heard it was during King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part One" at about the 6:30 mark.

    Is it modulation or what?

    It's either an auto-wah or manual wah with a very dirty signal going through, maybe even an amp distortion. I don't quite remember my KC history... what year was LTIA and was John Wetton still in the band?

    It was about 72ish and I believe it was Wetton's 1st album with KC
  6. <consults music library> In Larks Tongues it sounds like distortion & wah to me. He's just treadling the wah at a steady rate for the first bit, then it gets a bit random towards the end.
