This post has been in draft form for a few weeks now, I felt like trying to do something more with it, but now am just posting it as is…

I was working on a new guitar patch for my Fantom XR, generally messing around really, and I was shocked to realize that I can not apply a flanger effect to it after the “Guitar Amp Sim” effect in “Patch Mode”.  I knew that I could only use one MFX in patch mode, but I guess I am just used to my old faithful SC-8850 which could do true flanger using it’s ‘chorus dsp’.  Now some of you might say “well just use performance mode and do an MFX chain!”, that’s well and good only if you don’t plan on using the other MFX units for something else!

So, I came up with a workaround using Chorus on the Fantom.  It’s the same old trick, but it works.  Here are the basics of it:

  • Setup your Guitar Amp MFX however you like.
  • Set your Guitar Amp MFX “Chorus Send Level” to 127
  • Set your Chorus to “01:Chorus” and start with the settings below.
    • Output Level:  32
    • Filter Type:  off
    • Cutoff Freq:  8000 Hz
    • Pre Delay:  0.0 msec
    • Rate:  0.10 Hz
    • Depth:  54
    • Phase:  0 deg
    • Feedback:  72

I made a guitar patch based on the “Fingr Tap’n” patch from the SRX-03 Studio SRX board I called “Priest HiWay” using the technique above.

Here is a short clip of me screwing around on my keyboard with it.

As you can see, it sounds pretty much like a flanger thanks to chorus being a pretty similar effect anyway.

Till next time…

More XV-5080 testing

Short clip below of me trying to learn how to use the 3xMFX that the XV has available.  Yes I know it doesn’t sound great, I just wanted to figure out how to use three separate DSPs for 3 different instruments..  something none of my other synths can technically do. :O
