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:

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.!"

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.....
