Duration: 18 minutes
Featuring: Alan Parsons, with Tim Pierce, and John Shanks.
There are generations of guitarists whose careers would have been very different
had it not for the delay effect.
Appropriately, Alan discusses this crucial process with top session guitarist Tim Pierce and guitarist turned hit-making producer John Shanks.
The section looks at the application and use of this time-based effect, analyzing key parameters and how they react and interact.
Along with explanations of delay’s cousins - flanging, phasing, and multi-tap FX – Alan gets his hands dirty on one particularly memorable section involving vocals and delay effects built into the Yamaha 01v96 digital mixer. Who’d have guessed that Alan as yet another career ahead of him in dub?
