Re: crushing day effects?

there was a story in Guitar Player about Joe's tone on Surfing:
http://74.125.77.132/search?q=cache:...&ct=clnk&gl=nl

He doesn't reveal exactly what was used on Crushing Day (other than the use of a rockman for a focussed distorted sound) but it sounds like he was using the Eventide Harmonizer for pitch/detune/phaser/flanger effects. From the article:

Quote:
Is it possible that time and budget constraints actually affected the record in a positive way?

Without a doubt! Surfing was made without any lockout time—meaning that we didn’t have the studio completely to ourselves throughout the recording process. We’d have, say, four hours on Wednesday, then we’d only be able to get back in, say, for six hours the next Thursday—but in a different studio room down the hall from where we recorded on the other days. In addition, the studio owner was an avid gear collector, so pieces of outboard gear would be coming and going at such a rate that you never knew if the same reverb or flanger would be there when you came back! We were also renting a lot of gear.
This is why we always printed our effects to tape when we tracked. One particular instance where printing saved us was on the album’s title track. We stumbled onto this sound, which was the Kramer through the Tube Driver, a Vox wah, and the Marshall. But we also ran through an Eventide H949 Harmonizer for a slight pitch modulation. However, this particular unit was on the fritz. It was acting very finicky, and its pitch settings would jump around randomly. We really dug the way it sounded, but not only was the Eventide not long for this world, our time was up, and there were people outside the studio door waiting to start their session. Well, 20 minutes later, the Eventide died, but we had our take, and we had printed the effect. We had actually forgotten about it, but when we brought those faders up later during the mixdown, it was like found art
nobody knew in 2005 either

Re: crushing day effects?

That was a really interesting read -

To anyone who comes on here asking 'how do I get the sound of XYZ???'

Point them to this article cause the answer is 'sorry, you can't. Not unless you have this studio, with this engineer, using these mic preamps at these settings etc etc etc'
