can anyone point me in the right direction on how to set up a dotted 8th sound. Similar to Paul Gilberts echo song.?
unless you have the tempo pre-programmed into the preset you have to tap, and there's two different tap modes if i remember correctly. there's a mode that averages your taps and one that used the last few taps you tap in as tempo. (can't remember the exact number)I struggles with this for years until about two months ago. Try using the memory man delay. As was already say the mix is important. Have a decent amount of repeats. I use more repeats on .8 than I do anything else. Lastly you have to tap 4x minimum. for years I tapped my tempo twice and I was done but for .8 it never worked. My buddy also a fractal users mentiones to me one day that unless he taps 4x min his .8 doesn't seem to sync up right. Also for best results I am usually playing on the B and G string and I always hit the B string note before the G string. Hope this helps
The nice thing about those two is that they start with the guitar part which allows to adjust to the preset tempo. It's not that easy when you have to start in the middle of a song and the drummer is already on speed.Listen to Another Brick in the Wall or Run Like Hell by Pink Floyd, or Bad by U2. All songs that are easy to play, and require dotted 8th delays in prominent parts of the song.
yes I am away of all of that. In either case I found that unless I tap 4x my .8th never sounds rightunless you have the tempo pre-programmed into the preset you have to tap, and there's two different tap modes if i remember correctly. there's a mode that averages your taps and one that used the last few taps you tap in as tempo. (can't remember the exact number)
That has forever messed with me which is why I use my ears when I'm setting a tempoOn both my FX8 and AX8 the tap tempo reacts on the upstroke of the footswitch. It used to tweak me but it doesn't really matter though as the repeats don't occur when the light flashes, it's just an indicator of the tempo.
