    MoH has actually been out for a while , but I just love saying those words.
    I do have more of the new generation of EBow Madness uploaded to my soundclick page:
    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=113986&content=music

    Voyage to Another Blue World
    Lullaby (Part 2)
    Voices of the Glass Sirens
    Bug Chatter
    Into the Blue Caverns
    Self-Replicating Resonance

    All in the same minimalist vein. All are single stereo tracks unless
    there is "loop" in the title , in which case I used a single simple drone loop and played
    over it . All are done with unpredictable, mutant pedal chain variations ; split-chain
    with some different pedals for left and right channels .

    As usual, not a whole lot going on musically or with the playing . These are spliced-together
    pieces culled from long, mostly awful noodling sessions, which are mostly about fighting
    with the pedal chains , trying to get sounds that don't suck too badly . Fortunately, I'm
    obsessed and stubborn, so I eventually end up with a few minutes of decent sounds out of
    every couple hours of mucking around in the pedal soup . All these newest ones are done on a MiM.

    :thumb:
    (ps , I am not back on the forum . this was posted by my holographic doppleganger :sneaky: )

    If I don't respond , don't take it personally. I don't want to risk sliding back into
    posting-all-freaking-day-long mode , which is what always happens if I start interacting :mad:

    later, y'all'uns:whistling:

    Oh yeah, PS , in the soup , in no particular order :

    Pod 2.0
    TCE Sub-n-Up Octave
    Digitech EX-7 Expression Factory
    TCE Nova Delay
    Joyo Classic Flanger
    ModTone Clean Boost
    Behringer Compressor Sustainer

    Along with the Line 6 ToneCore units:

    Liqua-Flange (nice "step" setting , combined with the "poly" setting
    on the Sub-n-Up , and somethingorother on the EX-7, yields some
    arpeggiator-like effects that I love)

    Space Chorus
    Otto Filter (Wah)
    Tap Tremolo

    Not a lot of pricey gear

    to usb mixer

    to computerator

    Next : Wond II , aka EM Pick :eek:

    yup , b-sides and some new noise .
    Mushroom Cowboy Daydream #5, and Wobbly Wah are a couple teasers .
    I've got a pedal chain concept that's making more sense than what I'd had
    going on most of this year, which was a pretty unpredictable, haphazard,
    constant struggle of switching things around, not knowing wtf I was doing.
    I still don't know wtf, but it's less frustrating as I learn more about what
    pedals do what . But it's still 75% tweaking knobs to get an hour of garbage,
    and if I'm lucky, mine 3-4 minutes of good noise out . I'm addicted to the
    anticipation and eventuality of stumbling across something new and beautiful,
    so, even though I hate it half the time, the few good bits that come out make
    it worthwhile.

    It's about forgetting , too, but that's a whole other discussion.
    There's a ton of crap I'd like to forget , and maybe a lot I've forgotten,
    that I'd probably like to remember, if I knew what it was :confused:o_O

    Uno Mas : 'The Slowness of Oceans'
    What I like about the current situation is that I seem to have stumbled on a pedal chain that .... um... works :eek:
    If I knew wtf I was doing I'd say I have a good handle on the whole split-chain pedal affair, but I don't . But the latest
    configuration is really juicy , and things are tweaked so that they give me a pretty full spectrum of pitches , without muddiness
    or excess . I'm always tweaking for different effect, but I'm going to leave things where pretty much they are now ;
    no more mixing up pedals haphazardly , at least for a while . Sit down and record for most of an hour, instead of fiddle with knobs the whole dang time :mad:

    Anyway , thar she flows ---> http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=113986&content=music

    The squeaky noises are the body of the EBow scraping the strings :)
