Gated guitar

This series of effects produces a gated guitar rhythm triggered by a drum loop.

The guitar output is divided with two chains triggered by the kick drum, one an octave lower and one through a bright reverb. Another chain is triggered by the snare and hi-hat and runs through an Electro Harmonix Ring Thing, using a ring modulator on a delayed signal.

You can hear this set-up in the tune Blue Moon below, along with a few effects added in post-production.

More recently I've made a few changes to the effects units but the result is still additional guitar lines triggered on the kick and snare at an octave below and above.
