I ran across this video while surfing Youtube. I figured it is right up cdennyb's alley.

Oy vey.. Take the signal from an electric and feed it through a filter to imitate the resonances taken from an acoustic.. I should have thought of that.  Simple and obvious.

On the other hand, since I have both an acoustic and an electric, making one sound like the other hasn't been a big priority to me.  They each have sound characteristics that the other doesn't, and they are both nice and useful sounds.  Viva la Difference, y'know?

But if maybe someone only had an electric, and they wanted to sound more acoustic when they cut a track, this could be a very sensible direction to explore.  I still don't think it would be as "good".  Imitations never are.  Resonances are something that you interact with as you play, and adding them as an affect afterwards wouldn't be the same.

Playing an instrument in a room with some nice acoustic properties may sound similar to using a reverb effect.  But if you are actually in a room with nice acoustic properties, you really do  play different.  You feel and hear how the notes are working, and you will "milk" some that are sounding really nice and use techniques that are working well with that room/environment.  Playing "dry" into a recoding panel and adding reverb after may sound rather similar to the average listener, but you just won't play the same.  And it's just not as much fun, dagnabbit!  LOL

I have seen much of Josephs' research and his web site and articles there in as well. I feel he is a very intelligent man and more than that he's an artisan-craftsman that has met with technology and tempered that with a touch of intuition and divine intervention.

As you are already aware... many of our greatest inventions, discoveries and technological things we have today that we take for granted have been dreamed of, created and come to pass in the last 100 years of our time here on earth.

I would very much look forward to another reason for it to all be coming to pass in such a short time.cheers
