I love the sound in the demos - it sounds like a cross between a Wurly and a Rhodes.

Can you talk us through the different effect boxes you're using there? How they influence the sound etc.


Definitely. I'm off to Tahoe for the weekend but when I'm back I will talk through the effects and create some clips too. I obviously don't run more than couple of effects at one time, but you can really get some great classic and experimental sounds when you couple the VV64 with nice effects.

There is an effects loop, in which I have an Effectrode tube phaser and vibrato/chorus and also a wah, Fulltone tape delay and EQ. Effectrode pieces are my personal favorite. Just beautiful tube tones.

I'm also using three Strymon pieces from the stereo output. The Blue Sky reverb, Timeline delay and Möbius multi modulation unit.

The VV64 also has a great onboard stereo tremolo.

I highly recommend the Strymon units for keyboardists because they can take line in and run stereo. They also sound quite amazing. The Möbius has rotary, Trem, chorus and a bunch of other modulation effects. The Timeline has bucket, digital, tape, etc. delays. Blue Sky does variations on 3 reverbs.
