When doing ambient swells, I like to use fuzz pedals the most, even 2 fuzz pedals in a row.

Because I can go really wild with the gain range so the dynamics and excitement can be huge!

Delay is a must for me when doing swells, sometimes I engage mild chorus modulation too.

And then I like to use a reverb, or even 2 of them.

One of them is kinda regular plate reverb with some pre-delay.

The second one is really long, dense, wide and full of vibe with some modulation too.

In this case have I used SMR Toys N-1 Fuzz pedal into my RAT distortion/fuzz into my mildly overdriven Hohner Orgaphon (German Plexi style amp).

For the Post-FX I have used my Audified ToneSpot Electric plug-in for that regular FX and Linda Audio IronVerb plug-in for that extra atmospheric soundscape.

IronVerb will be officially released very soon!

If you are interested, dont forget to subscribe to Audified newsletter!

There will be some introduction discount.

I am already using IronVerb plug-in in my productions for a couple of months and I love it!

Back to swells... ;)

Well, I have been using a volume pedal for this kind of duties for years, so I am still learning to use my guitar volume pot for swells.

I plan to use those kinda swells more often in my productions.

It can make really rich wall of sound with a dynamic ramp movements!

I get inspired to write new music immediatelly when I start doing swells.

Maybe I am weird, but its the truth!

Are you using swells when writing music?

Or are you fed-up with them?

Who is famous for using swells a lot?

I dont even know...

Tell me!


May the muse be with you!
