In this video, brought to you by Universal Audio, my buddy Morey Richman and I are going to look at recording three separate 12/8 based guitar parts in the same song. Each part uses the Suhr PT 100 guitar amp in Unison mode, along with the Korg SDD 3000 delay plug-in.
The Suhr PT 100, is a custom boutique amp designed by Brainworx in collaboration with Pete Thorn, that is a bit like a modded hi gain Marshall. It’s got three separate channels, each with their own character. These are accompanied with a huge choice of impulse response recording chains that were perfectly captured from several boutique cabinets and recorded through a vintage Neve console. We used different setups for the three parts in order to give each a certain degree fo variation, while still blending with each other and sounding consistent.
Along with the PT 100, we are using Universal Audio’s Korg SDD digital delay. The parts all use triplet based divisions, in order to fit the with the triplet-based 12/8 fell of the song. The SDD 3000 is known for its preamp and gain staging flexibility. This is faithfully modelled here, and combined with the PT 100, creates some colourful and characterful saturation. The other thing the SDD was and is well known for is its wide range of modulation settings. Here we use subtle amounts of intensity, to get chorus style pitch modulation, with some modest but definitely audible frequency movement.
