Frank Zappa famously said, “A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it’s not open.” If you like your alternative stuff, you’ll probably appreciate the ability to go from gentle acoustic tones with massive reverb to a gut-churning syncopated rhythm in an off-beat. We all love the acoustic guitar, but it’s remarkably difficult to wear one with your electric, a problem solved with the Acoustic Simulator. And why limit yourself to one gain pedal? The SD-1 has a beautifully creamy overdrive effect, but a brutally distorted clipping tone from a fuzz pedal at low volume can be awesome in ambient passages. The DD-20 delay offers a huge variety of effects with four memories to save you tweaking on the fly, and the rotary speaker simulator and Dynamic Wah can be used to add some extra textures to your sounds. Experiment with their position in the chain to discover some unique tones. More
