Re: Satch - Not of this Earth Tone

that's a great question to which very few can answer...the rockman sound is unique because of a coupla factors...the sound was compressed going in, effected then expanded coming out...scholz nicknamed this trait "companding"...also theres not a whole lot of bass and certain midrange frequencies boosted...add in a stereo chorus and/or an echo/delay and you're pretty much there...the video below explains a lot of it and uses bias or some other modelling software but he shows the eq settings...d.m.

How do you get that sound from a generic digital multi-fx?
I doubt the OP even knows what a rockman is.

sepulchrave JS solos are surprisingly clean, lots of sustain and power tube saturation but not much distortion, pretty typical of a Marshall turned up loud but with the pre-amp gain backed right off, try it with a tube screamer. Use a compressor to make all the slurring sound more legato, there's some chorus on that album as well as reverb and delay which was typical of the era.
I have no idea how you'll get the sound with a digital multi-fx, you'll have to play around with it.

Satch - Not of this Earth Tone

Merry Christmas everyone. I am messing around with Not of this Earth from the Satch man and was trying to figure out how he gets his solo tone. Not trying to get exact just simular. I have a line 6 m9 if that helps. I am pretty new to pedals and still figuring out what sounds do what an go together. Thank you in advance for the tips.
