tak 14418@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>It was a video you could watch when you purchased and joined the "Remedy" album project at Artistshare wasn't it? They deleted the project page, so I asked them if I could watch the videos again and the answer was no. :(<br /> I should have downloaded all of them... </p>

add4 14226@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hey guys,</p> <p>as you know, i'm currently back into the heartcore band live recordings and digging them.</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/sVLfvjtqzeM" rel="nofollow">https://youtu.be/sVLfvjtqzeM</a></p> <p>i especially love kurt's sound in them and i've always wondered how he gets that kind of 'doubling' sound on this record. it's almost as if there was an octaver pedal in front of the distortion or something else.<br /> I LOVE this sound it's really organic and expressive, but also really processed and almost synth like in a great way.</p> <p>so my guess is<br /> d'angelico<br /> polytone (2004 is still polytone era, right?)</p> <p>rat<br /> DL4<br /> i do hear a kind of always on tremolo on the recording so as kurt stated he uses this trick, i would say a subtle, always on, tremolo</p> <p>?? the 'magical' thing? if there is something?</p> <p>could it just be the rat with it's kind of separation between bass and treble channels?</p> <p>any suggestion would be appreciated </p>

add4 13750@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hello guys,</p> <p>so i've stumbled upon a recent bootleg of kurt (Village vanguard, 24-06-2014) and i'm curious about his sound. It's one of the best tone i've heard from kurt, especially lately (i found the distortion on star of jupiter and our secret world less smooth and appealing as on the previous records for example).<br /> This time Kurt's soud has<br /> - an attack decay on almost every note. is that still coming from the Hog?<br /> - a really clear, resonant sound in the medium highs that makes it warm, yet ringing and bell like, i really really love that and i'm not sure it can come from the rat with the filter pot activated. si it still a rat, or is it a distortion from the axe fx or the kemper?<br /> - smooth, singing, not hairy at all distortion. again, what does this.</p> <p>i'm curious about all the always on effects kurt used to have (phaser, tremolo, compressor, etc) are they still included in his axe fx signal chain?</p> <p>Following his gear choices is much more complicated now that he's digital all the way, we soon will have to find a way to hack into his axe fx to have an idea of what he's doing (or ask questions during a masterclass, but it's a less fun approach).</p> <p>So, what's making the attack effet, what's doing the distortion, is the resonant clear sound coming from the guitar? pickup? effect? amp or amp sim? </p> <p>speaking about the music, kurt's technique seems to never stop improving, his fast lines are so smooth it's actually scary (and absolutely beautiful). He's just getting better and better. Incredibly inspiring to hear someone playing like that still evolve at such a pace.</p> <p>Peace </p>

lordofuo 13619@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Cool, thanks. I'm excited to start learning to use it. I just got worried, cause I noticed Kurt only started really using it live in the past year or so (as far as I can see), and that lines up with the HOG 2's release, kinda. I was thinking maybe it only became useful in a live setting with the HOG 2 for some reason, but I now assume that there isn't too much difference, as long as I don't need midi-controlled preset changing. </p>

sam 13614@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yeah. I had the HOG1 and use those two functions all the time. When I got it I wasn't really sure where in my music I would use it, but now I use it all the time. It really permeates my sound these days. There are a million different things you can do with it, too. </p>

kurtisrosenwinkel 13564@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>yeah i don't think there is much difference, except one big one which is midi control, so you can change presets via midi which is helpful if you have other midi gear that change presets together... </p>

mretfasterer 13551@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I have the hog and Have played with the hog 2...<br /> The hog 2 supposedly SOUNDS better but I didn't hear it :/ Take that for what it is, I suppose. I played a 335 to the hog2 to a deluxe reverb. Then I played mine. Didn't notice a difference worth selling mine and buying that one.</p> <p>The hog2 has a fancy little footswitch that saves 100 presets, whereas the hogI has a LARGER footswitch that stores 6 presets.<br /> I'm not getting the HOG2. Who needs 100 presets? And the sound enhancements aren't worth it, to my ears.<br /> Opinions.<br /> Thats what I think about it :/<br /> :) </p>

surfinboy 13433@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Briefly I had a Zendrive a few years ago and thought it was underpowered and overpriced, although I think Lovepedal is making them now - perhaps the newer ones have more output. I also tried a Timmy on a few gigs - reasonably priced but I found it underpowered too - I had to really crank it just to achieve unity gain. But I'm in the minority - most people love that pedal. I've never tried the LTD Drive but I think Barber in general makes great stuff, and their prices are reasonable. I think the LTD is discontinued. </p> <p>Sometimes I also use a compressor to smooth out overdrive/distortion tones - it removes some of the harsh transients. I use an Xotic SP compressor and I love it for clean stuff too. (Barber makes a nice compressor too.) </p> <p>These days I use a Mesa-Boogie amp and get all the dirt from the amp. By its very definition the clipping is more amp-like. Keep in mind most pedals are designed to imitate via transistors the sound of a tube amp. Lots of people get great results from Tubescreamers too - they didn't work for me, but other people get great sounds out of them - it's hard to argue with success. I've bought and returned lots of dirt pedals over the years. Listen to sound clips online (prymaxevintage.com and proguitarshop.com have some great demo videos). See what grabs your ear, buy something, give it a fair shot on a couple gigs/sessions, and be prepared to return it if you don't like it rather than letting it take up space and keep you from getting something else. </p> <p>It's too easy to second-guess tone - especially overdrive/distortion. Everyone's got an opinion and there are too many choices on the market. What the audience is hearing is totally different, and a pedal will sound different live vs. on a recording. I used to worry that my guitar sound didn't have enough bass to it, because I do a lot of playing/practicing by myself and I want to hear the whole spectrum. But in a band context, it's good to drop some of the bottom out and not get in the way of the other instruments. Lately I've tried to remove myself from the sound equation a bit and stop being a p*ssy about less than perfect sound. Set it and forget it! </p>

sam 13424@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I have the ocd and use it quite a bit. If you use it with the drive turned way low and the down a bit behind noon, it sounds excellent for jazz playing, though I use a twin reverb (and often a DD7). I don't know how it would sound with the polytone. If you left it on all the time and rolled back your guitar volume for chords, it sounds pretty clean. Are you playing through an archtop type guitar or more electric? </p>
