Effects for performing live
Posted by Don Van Doornik on November 02, 1998 at 13:36:36:
I'm looking for any advice on what effects to use for a QSR used exclusively for live performences. We have 2 keyboards accessing it simultaneously, so we're always in mix mode. I think I understand how to route the different programs in the mix to different effect buses so that different effects can be applied
to different programs (I want to make sure I still have a lezlie for the organs without needing to run strings etc. through the lezlie).
I would like to create one "standard"
effect with a couple of routing options to be used with the programs we use most (bass, strings, organ, ep, brass). Before I spend hours trying different effects I wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to where I should start. I've found that most of the subtleties of a program's/effect's sound are lost when performing live. I try to find programs/effects that
have a good clean bright sound that won't sound like mud when mixed with the other instruments in our band. Any experiences or general comments anyone has regarding the best type of reverb, chorus etc. to use while performing live would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
