    Thought I would give the Digitech Delay a run. This was an expensive pedal in its day here in OZ, but it sounds really good so I'm glad I bought it all those years ago. The two amps sound pretty close at these settings. Had the mic in the middle of the room and didn't know what to expect really. I think it sounds pretty Close to what it was like sitting in the room.

    Very nice! Were the amps on opposite ends of the room for the full stereo effect?

    Yes, each amp was on either side of the mic directly opposite from each other.

    Very full and thick tone, awesome job bro thanks for sharing your work, I cannot go back to playing out of one amp only, my recent clips are using all six of them at a reasonable volume. Just above TV volume.
    Cheers

    Nice.

    Neil Skene, I would love to hear a comparison of each of those amps dry too.

    OK now all you need is 2 backup amps and 1 backup delay.

    Nice job Neil,....one of my favorite bands of all time,...and maybe my favorite guitarist of all time!

    I was at the Nassau Coliseum in 1980,... and witnessed the greatest rock show ever produced! A tremendous production of musicians, animators, and flawless timing done throughout the show. and that's what it was ,...a show. It might have been closer to a superb Broadway Show than a rock concert.

    Pink Floyd performed this Show only 6 times in the United States, 3 on the east coast and 3 on the west coast. It proved to be a tremendously complicated effort to pull off this type of show. If you watch the videos on what exactly it took to perform this Concert/Show, you'll have a greater appreciation of Pink Floyds talents, and imagination in general, and Roger waters in particular.

    Once again Neil, great job! :applause: :agreed:

    The pedal, amp, playing, and recording all were great. Enjoy the rig.

    Maybe if I get another SM57 I would do it (I almost bought one to fiddle with over Easter) Otherwise I would have to re amp which I don't have the gear for. I was using an Audio Technica BP4025 which is my field recording mic. The sound bouncing all around the room blends the two sounds somewhat.

    They say Roger can make you cry with just one note. I love his sound.

    Thanks, I don't play with stereo that much but am always asking myself why? when I sit here and experience it.
    I suppose my main reason is I use effects in the loop and this prohibits it.

    Thanks Solar. I recorded it on a week night and had the volume down low. The mic I used picks up sound from behind especially at around 8kHz.
    The clicking of the pick and raw string sound can be heard in the attack of each note. Sometimes it sounds like a little bell. The recording came out better than I thought it would though.
