The first version of a simple but effective gitar fuzz box + synth.

One side of the patch is a Pitch tracker steering an osc, the other side distorts the original gitar signal (although delayed a bit).
The original signal, the 'synth' and the fuzz then come together in a mixer before being fed to the FX section with compressor and reverb.

Ideas, suggestions, improvements are welcome....

Richard

I've an acoustic guitar for which I built my own pickup from an old transformer a few magnets and some scrap metal, it works, sort of ... anyway I'm not very much of a guitar player, just every few weeks or so I pick it up mostly to react myself off of accumulated stress, so when it sort of works that mostly will do for me.

Nevertheless a while ago I saw someone mention the Behringer vmax thingies and decided to buy me one, for only 75 bucks it wouldn't hurt too much I thought.. But lo and behold, not only did it give me a completly new hendrix experience also it's able to get the guitar level up enough to put it into the G2, be it with quite some distortion.

So I took your patch and turned off all the distortion things (as I already had plenty of that) replugged everything and discovered the pitch tracker. Hey this is fun, especially the way it generates pretty fast random sequences when I play chords.

Maybe I'll go buy a 'real' guitar now :-)

A bit like Scrap Heat ?

Ooops, I forgot: the pitch tracker works best on single notes.... Laughing

BTW, what I like about the Clavia concept (Modular, G2) is the creativity.
I have been interested in Electronic Music for years (although I am a composer of pop music).
The fact that you can do audio processing as well as all sorts of synthesis is mind blowing! I had to wait several decades before this device turned up!
In the mean time I had to play with EMS Synthi, Kawai/Teisco, and lots of Roland gear. (I have a XV5080 with lots of expansion boards)
But I use that mainly as a preset module for all the real piano and other sounds - it is not inviting at all do do your own programming.

So the Clavia's (first the NM and now the G2) brought me back to my roots: right after my Engineering education (HTS, electronics) I worked for the CEM studios a while (contact Orgaan Electronic Music).

I intend to use the Clavia on my recordings for the sounds the Roland does not have: the nice organs, EPs, and really dirty sounds and effects - home made!
