Jem7VWH - “EVO”
Jem77FP with Roland GK-2A Synth Controller
How The Song Came About:
Fooling around with the Eventide DSP 4000 again...
What Was I Thinking:
The album liner notes:
It started with the riff and then it was just built from there, adding Jeremy and Billy first. The main rhythm guitar sound was constructed with the Eventide DSP 4000 going directly into a Whammy pedal set to an octave below. Then the signal was routed through a Sans Amp with heavy E.Q.
The main solo guitar was the Jem77FP floral with a Roland guitar synth pickup on it. The guitar pickup was processed through a Legacy amp and the midi information was captured with the Roland guitar synth. I then used a Korg Triton for some sounds and mixed the guitar signal in with the samples. Thatís why the solo has that surreal type guitar and synth sound.
Main melody guitar: Evo through a Legacy with the use
of the Roland Guitar synth to capture midi notes.
My goal here was to create a lyrical melody that emulates some kind of a creature speaking, but keeping it within the confines of the melodic sensibilities of the song. The results are a blobulent extravaganza.
