    Welcome to the Ambient Guitar Subforum!

    Post up your questions, share experiences, and talk about your sick footpedal fetish!

    I do encourage posts announcing albums/releases still be posted over in the proper forum (Member Releases or Non-Ambient Member Releases) as it will attract more attention from potential listeners there.

    Thanks to Whispersinspace for his suggestion to create this and S1gnsofL1fe for making it come to be!

    Can we have this as the sub-forums profile pic?

      No, it's the right amount of distortion, but no reverbs or delays.

              I do play electric guitar and have some, and two MIDI guitars. My question is, why spend all that money on devices you can't get to unless you bend down to the floor in order to tweek/setup? I can understand the use of a real pedal as a controller/switch or expression type pedal on the floor, but while I'm playing a guitar, the last thing I want to do is have to bend down to the floor in order to change a parameter. Why aren't these devices also made in rack forms?

              And also...Now that something like this inexpensive MIDI controller interface Fishman TriplePlay Connect Guitar MIDI Controller with it's own looping/playback software isavailable for only $229, is it cost effective to buy pedals ? Audio interfaces and modern CPU speeds are so fast there is no longer a problem with lag. I can understand how guitar playing technique between an audio feed-through and a MIDI pickup can make or break your creativity and playing style and for some, bending down to the floor to tweek is less trouble then having to pick your strings extra carefully as with a MIDI pickup.

                In my case, I had to install a GK-3 pickup in my Strat, as opposed to spending the extra $ on buying a midi guitar. For me, it serves its purpose, and I can scroll through the voices on the Roland GR-20 using the shuttle wheel on the GK-3 unit itself- no bending down to change parameters on the pedal. That being said, the unit is pretty out-dated as opposed to the GR-55, or some of the newer BOSS models that don't even require a MIDI pickup to get the same results. But there again, you have to bend over to the floor to change parameters!

                  Wouldn't it be better served with a picture of an electric guitar of some type- or a combination of both? You can't have one without the other- actually you can have the guitar without the pedals, LoL, but it would be less likely to be 'ambient', unless going through rack-mount EFX.
