Unorthodox Pitch Shifting

from Hilaro García
I bought a second hand Digital pitch shifter pedal (Boss) -that's it the one with the delay facility-. I didn't buy it for its hability to create harmonies. I believe that if you aren't a certain Mr Vai, harmonies played on the guitar can sound rarther clumsy, cliched and very, very '80s. Still, I use it for creating textures. Set the feedback to the maximum and control the pitch shifting knob to go a 5th or an octave ABOVE the current note. Together with a delay unit afterwards you'll get a never ending cascade of cosmic sounds.

Want to hear it? You don't have the pedal? Please E-mail me and find out how.
