    Too many delays....delays.......delays......d...

    I know this isn't metal in anyway, but I just found this guy on youtube while I was trying to get some ideas about setting up my delays and reverbs for my clean tones. Its something I've never given any thought whatsoever and thought it about time I actually paid attention to my signal chain.

    So this guy has a lot of videos about setting up multiple delays, reverbs etc to get some really lush ambient tones, swells etc. I don't know if anyone here will get anything out of his tutorials, but at least it will help all you insomniacs get to sleep tonight.

    Hi! Yeah there is something really cool about using delay, chorus and a really wet reverb for that billowing shoegaze wash behind your dry chords. The #20 vid was cool!

    This guy's vids are great.

    And of course, delay makes everything better.

    This is awesome. So many cool ideas that I have to try out now. It's also interesting to see what he does with the more extreme effects in other videos and get ideas to try.

    Great more reasons to buy more pedals!

    I have a way huge delay and a boss chorus but haven't come across a used reverb locally

    I have to admit that I find ambient guitar really enjoyable to listen to although it's a genre I have not explored. Makes for good movie sound tracks sometimes
