So, I'm auditioning on Saturday for the 2nd lead guitar/Gilmour spot in a serious (10 piece!) PF tribute band... The tunes are: "Dogs" (acoustic intro, high part in harmony duet and 2nd solo) "Money" "Comfortably Numb" My only electric is my PRS, which with the coil taps sounds appropriate (though not "really" the same as a strat)... I made a 1 board setup for the audition until the rest is finished on the Furman: StroboStomp->CompROSSor->Deluxe Moon Phaser->Hellbilly->Hellbaby->Hotcake Bluesberry->Deluxe Memory Man... The Carmen Ghia is in the shop getting something fixed and should be ready before Saturday... I was thinking about putting the EMMA on the board for Money, but not sure it's necessary. If the HR-2 gets here in the next couple of days and it makes for a good flanger, I might put that on as well and the POG is on the board in case I want to play at all with synth sounds... What do you think about this setup? I think it sounds pretty appropriate. I left the wah off of the board, as I don't believe there is any wah on the lead guitars on these 3 tracks in particular. Does anybody know specifically which vocals are Gilmour's? I can tell when it's obvious, but if any serious PF freaks wanna lay down exactly which parts he's singing on those tracks, that'd be great, since I'm also auditioning for backing vocals and possibly the Gilmour singing parts... I tuned my acoustic a step down for "Dogs," but am not sure if I should tune my electric to drop D or not... there is a low D note struck at the end of one of the solo parts, but I'm told we're not going to transpose it up a step (the simple solution if I were to need the acoustic for a song in standard pitch in the same set)... Unfortunately, I don't have the money to have good cables at the audition and the noise is annoying. I'm just really, really broke... I could spend $100 or so on nice cables/speaker cables/George L's made in time and maybe have enough money to eat before the next check, but I don't want to do that unless I have my final pedalboard system completely worked out so I don't just waste cable lengths on this, though I guess it never hurt to have extra cables lying around and I could probably use them in the future even if they don't work after I get a front end loop switcher thing (maybe pedalboards.com, they have a thinner casing than WOBO, but WOBO were great to work with and can make whatever I dream up, lately I'm thinking of parallel clean/dirty signals and buffered wet outs for stereo effects that can be reversed wet/dry that all go to a 4-1 passive mixer or something to be combined on the Effects input... I think I could achieve this with the WOBO patch bay unit & Programmable analog (or MIDI?) controller with a second custom WOBO companion unit for the weirdness- or I could have them make one from scratch that does all of it- which would have no more than I require and a nicer switch to control the Leslie cabinet speed or other custom oddities incorporated). This is a bit besides the point of the post, unless anybody in Nashville wants to loan me some good cables for a weekend... This will be an interesting learning experience for me and I'm pretty excited... I am at a point with work where I have the time and really would like to do something like this. I'm also told if I make it, I will need to buy a Talk Box (rocktron?) and an acoustic guitar pickup system (l.r. baggs blended system, I think- can use the out-of-the-chain strobo stomp with an A/B box to use as a DI for acoustic... cool). Any advice or thoughts regarding anything here would be appreciated, I read through the http://www.gilmourish.com site, I need to experiment a bit more matching delay times. The Deluxe Memory Man sounds good, but the solos don't sound smooth because bent notes/vibrato clash with their echoing counterparts, so I guess I either need to adjust the delay time closer or take the blend down a bit to avoid this harshness in parts where it's supposed to be smooth as butter, like the solo in "Comfortably Numb." Thanks & have a great day!
