Been messing around with my Axe-II and dialing in some classic 80s rack fx. I am going for that 80s hair vibe, but with a modern sound. The detune effect setup right sounds like a monster chorus, but without the warble, if that makes sense. That, mixed with some delays and verb... yeah, well I don't see myself going back to a dry tone anytime soon. lol
I posted a patch on here if anyone wants to pick up where I left off, or check it out. It was made for a FRFR setup.
Metalguitarist.org - Patch Library - Hmm, smells good to me.
I use effects quite a lot. Not so much the chorus on high gain one (used to years back, but started to prefer dry tone), but I love a good phaser or rotary speaker effect on really high gain. The phaser is just VH-incarnate, the rotary speaker sounds evil as fuck.
