nice, not tried the e-bow, although i've been looking at them on ebay for a while. I worked on the shimmer effect and ended up using two old rack units to achieve it, just before people started adding it as a preset to pedals, which is a lot easier for sure. Also been looking at POGs and the Micro Synth as i'd like to get some "non-guitar" tones.

I've had both. The Micro Synth was mad as a box of frogs. Helps to run a compressor before it to even out your signal as it could get a bit weird and glitchy. Great fun but I never really got much use out of it, and I could never get it to sound as great as the youtube demos I was watching.
The Pog 2 is excellent. The attack slider is great for auto volume swells, then you can easily add a shimmer effect with the octave up sliders.
thanks. yeah, it's weird that it came out like that because i've never listened to them, or much post rock in general. Would like to get more HF content in there, i might look at the pog for that. i was using a big muff for long sustained notes. i was thinking if i can do some really high harmonics and find a way to really sustain them that would work.
oh, yeah, i remember looking at that. i think i can actually do that with my lexicon. i got this nice rack unit for £65 which does a lot, stores programs, midi programmable, all the advantages u get with bigger units. some of the roland delay and reverb units do that as well. good for making drones.
