Re: Hexfuzz (was Re: Fretless MIDI guitar)


Many thanks for sharing your information with us.

You have mentioneded bad cross-talk with magnetic pickups that have led 
to mechanical transduction.

Have you had experience with the Godin guitars?

I did, 1984 in Frankfurt. And I really tried hard to explain that it can 
used to play chords, but still, the ones that would be able to play 
polyphonically said: "I will never try any distortion" and the ones 
interested in distortion did some quick solo line and were disapointed 
it did not sound as dirty as the Marshall.

I did not just build 6 filters and 6 distortiors, but the clipping is 
dynamic, so strings with different volumes will still have thoses 
volumes after distortion, so you can make a melody stand out of a chord.
And you all heard it at Loopstock :-)

And its on my site, you can build one.
