This is what happens when you give a guitarist a synth   29-Jan-15

Hey folks, Richard Beech here your friendly neighborhood guitar player at SonicState.

So I strayed away from the guitar flock slightly at NAMM and found myself at a booth with an Arturia MicroBrute and a few Strymon pedals.

I plugged the MicroBrute into the guitar pedals (even though there was a guitar RIGHT next to me) and started making some noises.

For all the legitimate synth players out there - you'll have to forgive me for my awful synthesizing, but it just felt natural to put that thing into a Strymon BigSky and twist some knobs.

I've been kicked out of the International Union of Guitarists for doing this, so I can only ask that you accept me lovingly into your world of patch bays, modules and social awkwardness, because now, for me, there is no going back.

Not only for now, for him, there is no going back. He will sell all of his guitars or exchange them for analog synthesizers. Lost on sound.

The timeline and Big Sky are just amazing. Amazing. Expensive, but amazing.

I bought a Strymon El Capistan just for doing this stuff with my Gaia / MiniBrute / Monotribe. It's a pretty amazing unit.

Using synths with guitar pedals and amps is definitely the future. Reamps are a wonderful thing. There's kind of an explosion of this activity right now..

These guitar pedals ARE synth or sort of no? midi CC, midi clock info, ... some pedals features sequencers, ... the new modular world is on its way.
