CAN YOU WORK THIS SOUND OUT ?

Postby Drewa » 05 Dec 2018, 05:56

Hey guys -

I'm trying to work out how to create this sound, heard at the start of the song "Fire" by "The Black Seeds" - on my Electro 3. It sounds like a Clav to me.

Anyone out there know how to achieve it ?

Sounds like a clav + envelope filter.

similar to this

*If you don't want to spend the coin for Mutron, and they are expensive, an Electro Harmonix Q Tron or the like will do just fine. Guitarists have been using these for decades, hell Jerry Garcia built part of his career on this effect.

That’s just a wah-wah pedal on the clavinet, played really well.

Upon closer listen, I think you're right analogika. Of course, a wah is a form of filter, manually operated. That guy has feet quicker than Luka Modric

Nah, he’s just tapping his foot on every beat, except he’s doing it on the wah instead.

NE3 onboard Wah will do, if you have an Expression pedal plugged in it will control the Wah filter by default (see NE3 manual)

..and then woodshed that part! What you play is far more effective than any preset.

Choose one of the clavs . Put some drive just for the intro if you wanna be pedantic . Then the whole song is a wah effect (you need an expression pedal to achieve the effect to its full potential,but not necessary).. And listen to what DHSP said, it really makes the difference in the end. You play that part until you hear it in your dreams, with dat funky feel :D
