Post The Echo Song on a Line 6 Vetta II
Hi all,

I played the Echo song on my laney gh50l with a ibanez delay. But now I bought a Vetta II head with all kinds of Echo's and delays. Anyone ever managed to get 'the sound' of the echo song? Please let me know, I can't manage it yet.

Cheers,

Albert

I don't know what that amp is or how it works but what I do know is that you need to find an echo that repeats once ONLY and get it in the right time so that it repeats at a certain speed so it's always playing 3 16th notes later.

You just need to find the right speed. I never used to be able to do it either but I finally managed to get it to sound ok.

I just recorded a clip of an example and the guitar panned centre is what I'm playing and the two guitars panned left and right is the single note echo that comes straight from a Korg PX4 effects unit. I'd imagine that an echo setting on your amp would work the same way.

You can hear in the first bit how I'm just hitting one note and it's repeating once. Then I start to just pick one note over and over to find my speed so that it'll match the echo.

Then I just played anything in staccato eight notes to demonstrate the 16th note effect.

I played the intro of The Echo Song at the end too so you could hear it in context.

Obviously, a real echo pedal works better but it's the speed and consistency that you need to find.

I hope this helps.

Haha, thanks for the Mp3. Unfortunate, I know the sound, but the line 6 is the problem. The right delay is still missing. It can be made, but can't figger out yet. Thanks anyway,

Cheers
