Not too sure what we are talking about? Well here is a list of commonly used phrases we use on the JOYO website that might help a little bit. If you look at Guitar Effects by type you will find lots of demos, more details, some reviews of all of our pedals and guitar amps. If you need any help, pleask ask.
Amp sims recreate the sounds of classic guitar amplifiers made, but instead of a heavy amp to lug about or take up room, the tones are recreated by a guitar effect pedal.
Its all about the bass, whilst modulation and spacial effects work very well across all types of instrument, overdrive and distortion really needs to account for those lower frequencies.
Chorus divides the original signal and adds it back into the original (lightly modified) adding richness to the sound. Its a classic and sounds as good now as it did in the 80’s.
Even out volume of notes, or add sustain, compression is the most subtle guitar effect but will become one that can improve the sound of your playing.
Delay generates an echo that returns and repeats depending on the setting. The repeated sound is a precise copy of the original that you play, and the volume of the echo weakens with each repetition. Achieve Shadows slapback styles with a short time setting, or go for pink floyd echo trippy-ness.. Distortion Distortion is even more aggressive than overdrive, has a longer reverb and can be reliably found in all metal genres.
You definitely know equalisers from HiFi players. They serve to amplify or reduce certain frequencies such as bass, midrange and treble. These effects strengthen/weaken the frequency in the given range of roughly o +- 12 to 20 decibels.
Sounds like a plane whooshing about your head.
Fuzz is a more aggressive style of compressed distortion using an excessive amount of gain to push your guitar signal beyond its limits
A head is simply the name for an amplifier without a speaker. Your friends won't have heads on top of amps, they'll have heads on top of speakers (with the head driving the speaker). The "basic guitar amp" also known as a combo tends to be an amplifier and speaker combined in one cabinet.
Record, overdub, play along with yourself, repeat.
Modulation is a category of effects that do not intend to change drive or distort but manipulate the sound in a particular way so phaser, flanger, chorus, tremolo etc would all be considered modulating effects.
A multi effect pedal will contain many guitar effects inside one unit that can be adjusted and saved.
In simple terms it is the opposite of a compressor, which squashes signals above a threshold, such as loud attacks from the start of musical notes, noise gates squash out signals that register below the threshold. So reducing noise from noisy pedals or high gain amps.
These pedals can drop your notes down or push them up higher where your fingers cannot reach. The Octave pedal mixes the input signal with a synthesised version whose musical tone is an octave lower or higher than the original. ... Hendrix used an octave-fuzz pedal
Overdrive effects simulates the ‘overdriving’ of a tube amp, with the resulting sound of the electric guitar being characteristically a bit ‘cracked’ and ‘gritty’. Overdrive took hold in music during the 1960s, it warms up your clean guitar tone without distorting it.
These are the shorter cables that join your guitar effect pedals together. They are a 6.35mm mono cable, exactly the same as a guitar lead.
A lot of pedals? Try changing 5 pedals at once without falling over. A pedal controller allows you to program all of that in.
Phaser effects change the volume in the chosen frequency band while also adding to the original signal its phase shifted copy. In practice, it seems as if the phaser is breathing.
That thing with a plug on it, you can get a single power supply, a daisy chain, a multi power supply, filtered, isolated...
Reverb is one of the most frequently used effects in music, guitars, keyboards, vocals the effect delivers a spacial sound ranging from a small room up to a large hall.
Tremolo is one of the oldest effects, and thanks to its simple technical realisation, it is often built into guitar amps. The effect regularly adjusts volume and strength of the signal, the speed of which can be adjusted. When set properly, a nice, swinging and pulsating effect is achieved without changing the resulting character or height of the sound.
Fade in, Boost it, crank it up, okay turn it down…. Fade out… in stompbox pedal format or wah pedal style..
A wah-wah pedal (or simply wah pedal) alters the tone and frequencies of the guitar signal to create a distinctive sound, mimicking the human voice saying the onomatopoeic name "wah-wah". Auto wah or manual wah wah to get your funk on.
JOYO PXL 8 Loop Guitar Effects Pedal Loop Controller - Purple is a programmable looper that offers almost unlimited effects sets that can be switched quickly and easily. Comes with it's own power supply and ready to go. There are 8 inputs for effects and these can all be assigned at one time if you choose for some real sonic madness.
Very easy set-up with memory functionality, this will remember all set sequences even after the power has been turned off. Very nice for the stage player and travelling musician. This is channel FX switching system is a floor based switching system. It is compact, easy to use and has a fully programmable memory. Usually effects pedals are connected one by one to each pedal in series. You turn 'ON' or 'OFF which ever pedal you want to use. If the amount of pedals used is increased this operation becomes very cumbersome especially in live performances. This problem is also known as 'tap dancing'. Making beautiful music and smooth transitions between effects is greatly reduced if you have to turn 3 effects at one time or accidently hit the wrong effect. The PXL series of pedals are designed precisely to stop your 'tap dancing'. It makes switching multiple effects more efficient at one click away.
Takes standard negative centre 9 volt DC power supply.
The PXL8 is a simple to use, rough and ready guitar effects switching system. Your sound is no longer limited by only having 2 feet. With the stomp of one switch you can turn up to 8 effects on or off.
The PXL8 has 8 effect loops, you can have anything from complete bypass up to all 8 loops active at once. Don't worry about loosing your settings when you turn the unit off, you can store up to 32 different pedal combinations in it's memory. Your effect combinations are stored in 8 banks each with 4 patches.
If that wasn't cool enough, the PXL 8 also features a true bypass design with super fast silent switching, so there will be no colouration of your tone or "pop" sound when you switch patches.
"Sometimes a song can require quite a complicated patch, this can mean something close to tap dancing on your pedals if you're not careful! So that's where these pedal switches come in handy. Pre program your patches for ease of use for that crucial live situation when timing is everything!" Matt UK product guru.
