Any recommendations on what effect to use to get that slicing sound? Right now I'm experimenting with some flanger and tremolo. Close but...
Awesome. I will load it up tonight.Here's an Axe II preset you could convert with FracTool.
The pan/trem block doesn't provide enough control over the LFO shape for this, so a volume block with LFO modifier is used. Envelope runs the LFO when you play a note for proper sync. There's also a ~32nd note slapback delay and a gate last, sidechained to input.
The amp that I use 95% of the time is the Friedman 2018. The cab is a basketweave w/greenbacks. All stock from AX8. Not in front of the AX8 right now so I can be more specific about the exact amp/cab.Whew - I'd be interested in your preset(s) for that song !! (which Amp/Cab for the main riff?)
Do you have a Keyboard player in the band ? If yes I'd maybe consider to leave the intro to him/her. And if not, there's also some Arpeggiated synth drone sound going in in the Refrain, which the AX8 could possibly also recreate - check e.g. Andrea Puxeddu or @simeon 's stuff for inspiration/how-to ... ;-)
That's guitar with the same tremolo effect as the intro. All on 3rd string, high notes tapped:there's also some Arpeggiated synth drone sound going in in the Refrain
