Skyripper Samples Joe Gagan 2/21/101 0:47 am
All samples were made with the following:

Guitar- Fender-esque doubleneck, mostly on the lead pickup [Seymour Duncan Broadcaster Lead], but sometimes I switched in the front pickup [Vanzant blues model strat pickup].

Amp -Mesa Blue Angel, EVM style 12",on the 2 6V6 setting. Miked close with a Shure SM57, and about 6' away with a tube mic.

Volume was at 10:00 O'clock, all the tone controls were kind of in the middle. Reverb was at 9:00 O'clock.

The knobs on the Skyripper were not modulated while a track was running. Most of the variation was from pick attack variation, with a little bit of volume knob tweaking as well.

Note: when listening, notice the dynamic flipping between two very different sounds. At times I picked very lightly to accentuate the undertone, then leaned into it to flip into the lead sound.

"Clean 1" shows the amp tone before the effect is kicked in. Baseline.

"Skyripper 1" is just the Fuzz by itself.

"Skyripper 2" Ripper mode. Notice how the noise is totally moved out of the way when the picking becomes a hard attack. At about :45 I begin picking very lightly, showing a very interesting atonality, then flip in and out of the lead tone just by varying my attack or volume knob.

"Skyripper 3" 'Rippergulper' setting. A little more radical. Check out how the high notes seem to 'gulp' when played.

"Skyripper4" More Ripping, slight knob adjustment.

"Skyrip 5 & 6" Frequency generation mode. I tuned the generated note to a specific pitch and then jammed with it. Again, notice how, with hard attack, the lead tone comes totally to the forefront.

"skyrip 7" the Treble Boost and Fuzz together. A 'back to basics' good lead sound. Check out the combo of articulation and fatness. Slight hint of high frequency feedback within itself audible.
