11 Ways To Use Modulation – That Pedal Show

April 19, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/CrtRZq49oNw

In this episode we take a look at the principle modulation effects (well, most of ‘em) offering up some tips and advice on how you might use them.
So often the people will run, screaming toward us, arms aloft fair pleading, “Pray ’elp me, Dan and Mick, for I desire to use wobbly effects but every time I do it sounds like blancmange in me lug’oles. How may I remedy this cursed affliction?”
And we propose, “Fear not ye auditorially anxious. For we possess the learnings to cure your complexion with these 11 Great Ways To Use Modulation. Heed ye these teachings and carry forth the sonic delights within to whomsoever shall grant ye audience. Go forth and modulate!”
Or something.
