- Reaction score
Even with MIDI guitar control it's tough to emulate two hand technique on a keyboard. Finger picking is a must. But melodically it's fine. And in a mix nobody will know, if you pay attention to your phrasing. It's all most effective if you're recording.I think these pedals are fun and it could work given some diligence on pedal settings and guitar technique and I have no problem with that. I expect amp / cab / mic / guitar effects modelling to work to 'fool anyone' standards these days, but I don't expect that from the EHX pedals, so it's okay... Quite an eye-opener for me, really.
People don't seem to be as impressed as they should be when piano sounds spew from your guitar...But judging from the poll I referenced it's not too surprising they don't grasp or care what's going on. I get the same reaction from folks with digital 3D generated art. I don't think most of them have a clue as to what they're looking at or how it's done. Or even care.
Which is depressing somehow.
