Well, I was joking a bit ;-))  Actually I am quite ambitious regarding
extended improvisational techniques and put a lot of time into
developing such.

Akai EWI 4000s ("Electric Wind Instrument").

It is! I have sampled my single coil low output Stratocaster so I can
use my own guitar sound with the EWI. Musically it comes out a bit
differently when blowing compared to plucking physical strings, and
I'm finding that quite interesting! This sample set uses two
recordings for each note; one with a straight thick jazz pick attack
into a overdriven Sovtek MIG-60 tube amp with one Marshall Lead Series
1x12" cabinet. The other sample is the same rig but with a Big Muff
between guitar and amp, and these fuzz tones all go into "singing"
acoustic feedback in a couple of seconds (neighbors went crazy the day
I recorded all that). The feedback tone samples are set in the sampler
to a slow attack, so they only join in if I hold a long note.

Graphic effect is dirt simple: iTune's graphic plugin!
