That's some serious signal processing there, Bill. Can you desribe the component chain for us?

It reminds me of short-key CVSD encryption.

I liked that! That was very good. My turkey in the straw, the turkey is asleep. Very slow.

🙂 @Peter !!!!  Aye, there's nae fooling you my friend !!!!

The effects were done using Audacity. I recorded the video using VideoPad, separated the audio, imported audio into Audacity, then did the following - noise cancellation (as ever), then created two additional copies of the audio, and pitch-changed one by +0.15 semitones, and the other by -0.15 semitones (in a sort of attempt to make it sound like more than one instrument playing). Finally, a VERY short echo was added to all (now 3) tracks. Still in audacity - I balanced the levels in the mixer and mixed them all down to one audio.wav file. I took THAT back into the VideoPad editor, muted the original audio, and used the Audacity post-processed audio instead.... It's not QUITE what I had hoped for, and there appear to be some minor processing artifacts but worth experimenting with ! ( Too much time on my hands these days LOLOL ! )

And oh - for those blessed with "perfect pitch" if it sounds in some way "unusual" - well that's because I am playing it with the fingering for Gmaj - ***BUT*** the entire instrument is tuned one tone down so it's actually in F - certainly not a common key for that tune.... ( F, C, G, D instead of the usual G D A E - but- PLEASE don't ask about that.... ROFL )

Give the big ol' turkey a poke with a sharp stick - that'll get it moving along !

Well, you did fool me. It sounded like a live setup; I was wondering what pedals you had chained together!

I no longer have any guitar pedals, or else I'm sure I'd have put the solid fiddle's output through them by now; in any case I'm too busy trying to get my fiddle skills up to muster.

LOL @Peter - yeah - it wasn't exactly recorded in real time... ( well, it WAS of course but then again, what is "real time"...   which causes me to recall an ongoing discourse with a fellow engineer who insisted real-time measurements and instrumentation are all to do with speed...  With which I could not disagree - but his insistence was that "speed" meant in terms of nano seconds, or microseconds.  But it's all relative I said.  A payroll system can be regarded as real-time - its time-quantisation happens to be  once per month, and if it doesn't keep up with the inputs and produce the appropriate outputs, on time, the system fails, just as does the radar system we were working on....   He said I was absolutely crazy (well, possibly some truth in that), and we still disagree on the concept of real-time to this day !!! roflroflroflrofl)

I used to have a variety of guitar pedals acquired over the years.  It became a bit of a mess for impromptu playing and connecting up.  I finally donated them to the local school music dept, and got myself a combined multi-chainable-fx box in the form of a Boss ME80....  and yes - it now gets more use on the EV than my Fender does !!!

Do you have any recordings you can share of the EV through the ME80? I'm being lazy; I should search YouTube... bug-1_gif

@Peter -Hmmm...mostly the box gets used for live performances - although I MAY have posted a video as a demo of the box not long after I got it..   I'll check back and let you know

I found this:

Unremarkable, but I'm something of an extremophile when it comes to effects (it's what your OP sound so interesting).
