    The Prince Estate just dropped this on YT today.
    Pretty cool, though the post video effects are annoying.



    Warning: Not for the LZ purists who want note-for-note covers.
    This is essentially Prince starting with WLL and then using it as a framework for a jam.

    That was cool. Thanks for posting.
    I've heard that flanger type effect from him before (2:18).but nowhere else. I wish I knew how he got that.

    Really? Just a single.pedal? It sounds so...compressed and filtered and not like any other flanger effect I've tried.
    I guess I need to try harder to get that sound because I like it a lot for emphasis. I have a Helix and hopefully I can coax something closer with more effort. Thanks

    You can run distortion before the flanger for that pronounced effect.

    The two musical regrets of my life will always be:
    1. Never seeing Zeppelin. I had ticker fo the tour before Bonham died.
    2. Never seeing Prince live.

    I vaguely remember an interview where he said he kept all knobs at noon for the visual appearance. Never knew if he was serious or not.

    Very cool OP!

    I’ve have a couple BOSS BF-2 Flangers, the Made in Japan version totally nails that Prince flanger sound, the later Made in Taiwan, not as much. You can find his settings on line. It’s also the pedal Adam Jones of Tool uses quite a bit. Here’s a good demo.
