Pop 80's reverb and delay
« on: Time Format »

Hey guys here's my dilema... I have a gig next month to fill in for a friend of a friend. They are an 80's pop cover band (not my cup of tea but after buying this house I could use the extra coin). I cannot for the life of me get the right tone to cover, wait for it....Corey Hart, sunglasses at night and a few others which have the same tone. Neither my G major 2 or G force will get it right. I am considering putting either my quadraverb or intellifex in the MP1 loop, so I don't screw up my normal patches. Just make a few mp1 patches with the loop on for this gig.  Anybody have a good patch for either of those units for what I need? Also an MP1 patch would help, all my patches sound too heavy, even ones I made with the o.d's below 5. :dunno:

It might be a tri- chorus, but I have never had any luck setting those up with a distorted tone, only cleans. :facepalm:

Me thinks, for the base tone, you should simply use a suitable [80's tone] pedal in front of your MP1.
As for the fill, either a Yamaha SPX-90 or FX-900 rack reverb, or one of the devices capable of a Dimension-C or -D.

I ended up using the clean channel on my MP1 with chorus plus a dirt pedal in front for the mid/low gain tones. Quadraverb in the loop with alot of chorus,delay and reverb. It was more than wet, it was soaked in those effects. It turned out well. Now if I need to do it again my gt100 has an awesome 2x2 chorus that will work just fine.

Doesn't the gt100 have an emulation of Dimension-C/D ?

No, it doesn't.  I wish it did. It has the 2x2 chorus. A mono, a stereo 1 and a stereo 2.

I believe I used a boss ds1 Gain around 30%, tone to taste and level at gain unity
