    another live improv:
    my 1st recording with the FunctionFX ClusterFuzz pedal.

    it's really long, but..... but, it's really long:
    14:44

    the set-up was:
    ronin freaked mirari guitar
    FunctionFX ClusterFuzz
    2x HEXE ReVolver pedals
    fryette deliverance 120 amp
    fryette power station
    catalinbread echorec & neunaber slate reverb in power station's loop

    this is a mono recording, stereoised afterwards in LogicPro.

    fwiw:
    here was the pedal's set-up for the recording, above..... quite conservative, fuzzistically, really:

    lots of range, here, d --- i went at it most conservatively, looking for always being able to get back to(wards) cleanishness.

    great sound AND feel, & digging it!

    here's another:
    shorter & fuzzier.

    a live improv --- this is only the "introduction" to the whole of it; i chopped off the final 10-minutes, actually.

    ronin freaked mirari guitar
    FunctionFX ClusterFuzz
    fryette deliverance 120 amp
    fryette power station
    catalinbread echorec & neunaber slate reverb in amp's loop

    "introducing Y & Mo N.!"

    Looks like the track got renamed and the previous link is now defunct. Here it is again.

    no, cjw, the link's fine!
    it "self-adjusted", a feature of SoundCLoud.

    Mr. Torn masterfully uses that fuzz as an instrument on its own.
    I wonder how that would sound with his MultiOud...:idea
    Or a Fender bass VI

    I have tried to ignore the Clusterfuzz but somehow it is making its way to my GAS-List.

    i just uploaded a different "mix" of the "introducing"-clip, above; i thought it sounded a bit darker than i remembered it;
    i opened up the mix-file & realised i had an EQ turned-"on" which def should NOT have been engaged, so!

    there it is in the same link, replacing the original one.

    ok, then!

    another clip..... because i discovered that the ClusterFuzz has a mode in which there can be occasional octave-below shadows underlying certain ranges of the guitar.

    there no looping, etc, in this clip; it's just an "example" clip.

    input filter engaged.
    LED diode-clipping mode ONLY, as far as i can tell.
    pickup doesn't matter --- neither does the guitar, as i tried it w/2 very different instruments which utilise very different pickups & pots.

    however, try this:
    solidly hit the open "g" string @ guitar's full volume, sustaining the note: then slowly lower the guitar's volume control until you hear the octave below.

    the octave-shadow seems strongest from the open-string until about the 5th-7th fret.

    please do listen to my clip on speakers or cans which reproduce solid, realistic bass & sub-bass balance.

    in this clip:
    there's no fuzz engaged until :44s
    i slowly ramp up the guitar volume from there.
    the first example of the shadowing lower octave shows up around 1:58, then it's peppered throughout the clip.
    also, see from about 3:00-3:30, from 4:34, etc.


    here it is, so.....
