Re: hex fuzz


I actually owned a GR100 for about seven years, along with the Roland G202
guitar and I really regret selling it - that was a really fun guitar as far
as creating unusual textures goes - it was somewhere between a guitar and a
synth, sort of orchestral and the lead tones were gorgeous.  Chords were a
real trip since they didn't give you that power chord sound standard 
through an overdrive gave you...what was cool was taking the power chord 
sound and mixing it with the hex fuzz for a really powerful sound.

I'm thinking that even narrow bandpass filters will grunge up pretty
badly.  Many unpleasant fuzz effects come from minor 3rds, 2nds, minor
2nds, etc., and these are all too common in guitar chord voicings.
I'm sure that prefiltering into multi-fuzzes sounds different, but
I'm guessing that the only a hex pixup will give independent processing.
But then, a "Hex Fuzz simulator" may offer some nice qualities of its

On another topic, if anyone out there is knowledgable about using
Power Macs for recording to disk, I'm looking for some advice for
home studio applications.  I'm considering buying a PM in lieu of
(at least fore awhile) an ADAT.  Feel free to reply directly to me.
