RE: GR-30 and "Dropped 6th string tuning" + loop content
Actual loop content: 22% (see below)
Thanks to all who responded. I'll probably just convert my strat back
to normal tuning and create some "virtual" tuning patches on Gr-30. Of
course the obvious drawback, as others pointed out, appears when mixing
guitar signal with the synth -- which I like to do. On the other hand,
it may create some interesting opportunities as well.
I already had a heavier gauge string (54 I believe), but it only helped
slightly. I'm curios about Jim's setup. He's using a Godin and isn't
having the same issue. If I'm not mistaken the Godin doesn't use the
GK-2a pickup, but rather a piezo solution (the RMC's perhaps?). Could
this be a superior design? I got the impression from the Roland manual
that "closer is better" w/ regard to the hex pickup and the bridge.
Following that logic, the best position for the pickup would be the
bridge itself. Maybe?
By the way, there's a new mailing list that just started up for the
RDLA: recommended daily looping allowance..
Relatively poor man's looper:
1) you need at least a mixer or amp or other effect device with a free
send/return pair, a delay pedal, and a volume pedal.
2) From the send go into a volume pedal, then a delay pedal, then back
to the return.
If you want to add something to a loop, hit the volume pedal. Close the
volume pedal and solo away over the loop.
Have fun and save for that EDP, Boomerang, Jamman, or wait for GOD <sic>
to create a PC looper solution next year.
