Tonal Teamwork: Why ambient guitarists need an Auto-Wah/Envelope Filter on their pedalboard

Auto-Wah is so much more than a funk pedal! With the right combination of effects, you can create some of the most magical interstellar synth sounds with an Auto-Wah/Envelope Filter on your board.

In this episode of Tonal Teamwork we manage to make a humble US Telecaster into a massive synthesizer that could easily have belonged in the Blade Runner soundtrack, simply by using a Compressor pedal, Envelope Filter/Auto-Wah pedal, Delay/Reverb pedal and an Octaver pedal. Four pedals an you’re off into space!

Hope you enjoy this video. If you do, then remember: Sharing is caring. And we just love it when you show that you care. Keeps us motivated 🙂
