Troy Van Leeuwen TonePrints
Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age) set out to create three fluttering and warbly TonePrints for Flashback Delay and Hall of Fame Reverb.
The first TonePrint, ‘Warble Tape Delay’ for Flashback Delay is said to have a "warbly, dark tape delay sound with plenty of flutter," "quite similar to what can be heard on old tape delays where the tape is almost worn out."
Similarly, the second TonePrint, ‘Vibrato Spring Reverb’ for Hall of Fame Reverb, is about "exceeding the mechanical limitations of an analogue spring reverb." The starting point was an idea of creating a dark version of a vintage Twin Reverb, but Troy ended up with a modulated reverb.
The last TonePrint, again for Flashback Delay, was named ‘Quick Slap Delay’. This TonePrint has a short delay time and just a few delay repeats which provides an ambient effect similar to adding a room mic to a “close-micing-setup” when recording guitars, according to TC Electronic.
The TonePrints are available as free downloads on TC Electronic’s website:
