GR-55 - Wonderful Land ..... again.
« on: January 05, 2013, 10:22:23 AM »
I've revamped the settings for this Shadows tune.
The machine that was used for the record was a Meazzi  Echomatic Mk2, drum echo.
I've raised the level of the GR55 equivalent of head 4 a little. ( centre on the GR55 )
There was a control on the Meazzi whereby this was a simple knob adjustment and it was used , most, noticeably, on the Savage so this  GR55 setting is a bit of a compromise between Wonderful Land and the Savage, head level 4 is more than it was on Wonderful Land but less than it was on the Savage.
I've also took some of the treble off the repeats a little.
The GK buttons select neck or bridge pick-ups. The guitar setting is a Classic strat.
There may be adjustments to the guitar tone or echo amount or feedback but don't be tempted to mess with the timing or  relative head levels.
This is only effective in mono, when in stereo the echoes whizz round all over the place and the effect is lost.
Cheers,
Ecca

Your posts on Meazzi very good info thanks
I have now Line 6 Helix. And there is a 6 and a 4 tap multitap delay available.
I am trying to understand the simulation of the Meazzi if possible
You mention "the feedback taken from head 4". What does that actually mean.
Could one select on the Meazzi which head provides the feedback. Did all the heads not feedback to the signal? Or could you adjust or select only one at a time?
