Pack: Amp Modelling experiments 2009-Sep-05 by AlienXXX

Pack info

Some old experiments of mine involving the guiar amp modelling software Revalver III produced some kind of digital artifact on the tail of some of the sounds. The key ingredient to creating this sound were the amp models 6505 and 6505+.
Either ot them would create this tail sound, although you might need to sample the sound and amplify the tail to notice it, since it is very low volume.
The tail sound seemed to be pretty much the same, regardless of the sound fed into the amp - the only requirement was that the sound decayed quickly so it would not merge with and mask the tail.

The sounds were created by Revalver III in Ableton Live. I used one or two instances of the Utility effect to massively increase the volume after the amp (the tails are very faint). Then used a (reverse) gate to open only when the sound dropped below a certain level (the bulk of the sound would be extremely clipped otherwise due to the extreme volume).

My early experiments were posted here:

A recent discussion with another Freesounder brought up my interest for these sounds again and I have dug up some more of the recordings made in those sessions (back in 2009), which I had previously left untouched in my hard-drive.
