    Hello my friends, As always, thanks for being a great bunch of guys with super-helpful suggestions always, and for being patient with an intermediate-level player like me.

    I was trying to reply to this old thread: https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?20772-Harmony-processor&highlight=harmony+effects and it seems that post never went through. So I am going to repost as a new topic in the hope it will go... I am in a band (what else is new) and am the...

    I was watching this James Carter video: https://youtu.be/JbzpdoGu6CI And I’m curious as to what the effect is called that he uses at 0:34. Is anybody able to tell me what it’s called, and by extension how I could go about learning it? Thank you!

    Here's a fun jam from my Nu Jazz duo GrooveTronX. This is shot live in San Antonio, TX. We've got the laptop running Ableton live synced to a KP3+ and KAOSS PRO. I've got a wah, POG 2, and delay pedal running into the pads along with a vocal mic running through and effects processor. PRO...

    Hey, SOTW! I made the first video in a series I'll be doing demonstrating the use of guitar pedals with saxophones (or any other wind instrument). I'm a massive nerd for guitar effects pedals and blending them into a saxophone sound has been an intermittent project of mine for almost a decade...

    I'm playing in an 8 piece horn band right now where we had the alto sax doing bari parts on some pieces by using a pitch shifting device like the ones mentioned in the title. Well, we lost our alto and I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with one or both of these effects and which...

    Hi there. I need your opinion to solve issues with a baritone sounding uneven in a loud setting. It's for a friend of mine who plays a Yanagisawa B 992 with a Berg Larsen mouthpiece. He's got an Acoustic Image amplifier along some effects (reverb and octave) and he struggles to get an even...

    Hi, im looking to find an effects pedal that will allow me to create a squishy, wet sounding tone. A good example of this would be at 3:47 in this song, and again at 4:44 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-Pi4Hgof_8 if anyone has any good suggestions, i would be very grateful.

    I have been trying to figure this out, but I have had no success. It sounds like an absolute train wreck and I love it. If anyone can figure out how to do this, please let me know. Thanks! It's at about 0:18 in the video. http://youtu.be/ia2lrqS42Oc

    I've been listening to a lot of Moon Hooch, Morphine, etc. lately and want to look into getting a new-age kind of sound out of my sax. All I have now is a pretty standard condenser mic. and that feeds-back like crazy when amp'd in any close proximity. I have a backup tenor that I wont be...

    HOla SOTW, I play in a really fun band and thus far I've only played a clean sound....usually just into a 58 but I just got a Shure Beta98H. We play some really funky (and weird) stuff that effects would sound great on; so I'm thinking about throwing down for a Qtron+ and maybe a Line6 M9 (the...
  13. Electronic Equipment
    Hello, I am trying to get a decent Audio dynamics and effects for my perfomance in live situations, so I am trying to investigate my options, cause I need real processing with NO delay time, to put my sax mic signal thru compresion, eq and effects and get it ready to feed the main audio...

    I recently got Ableton Live and I am looking to get a smooth jazz sound via the plugins. Reverb sound. Any suggestions on what I should focus on or start with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Electronic Equipment
    I've been noticing lots of people on this and other forums-- myself included-- asking many questions about incorporating effects pedals into a saxophone/wind instrument sound. This is something that's always fascinated me, and I've used a pedal rig, off and on, for the past few years, but I'm...

    Hi all! If anyone is interested in using effects pedals with the saxophone, I put up a couple videos going through my setup. Part I is an explanation of what I'm using and why, and Part II is me playing through the sounds in different ways and combinations. Hopefully someone can get something...

    Why does my sound not come through the board at gigs? I'm using a Sure Beta 98H, through a couple pedals(octave Boss OC-2 to a Line 6 Delay) and out to the board. This set up works at rehearsals with phantom power in front of the pedals, but at gigs I try to get phantom power through the...

    Sorry if I'm covering old ground here - I couldn't find anything so here we go. I play in a funk band and I want to use various effects with my saxophone. I run it through a standard issue PA system and Shure PG57 mic. The other day I tried to use it with a friend's Jim Dunlop Cry Baby Classic...

    Just curious as to what kind/type of reverb you all prefer to use when playing your sax? I am currently experimenting with different types of reverb effects, at the moment....haven't found one that I have fallen in love with yet.
