Ambient Pads Preview, Rhythmic Addition to the Fulldrive/Tim/Liquid Blues Shootout, & The Pedal I've Always Wanted

A lot of updates, and I figured they’d get lost in the mix if I gave them each their own post one after another in the same five minutes. So I squished them altogether. Like an Orange Squeeze compressor. Score. Tone joke. And a bad one.

First order of business is that some ambient pads are finally available for download. I figured that perhaps others might be able to find uses for them in their churches and venues as well. But, it’s still in the preview stage. So there’s only two pads up right now…I didn’t want to put a ton of time into them if there’s absolutely no interest. hehe But if there is some interest, I’ll be more than happy to finish out all the keys, and different versions of all the keys. Here’s all the info for these:

Secondly, I received some comments kindly pointing out the lack of chordal rhythm work in my latest Fulldrive/Tim/Liquid Blues Shootout video. I was appalled. My videos are perfect. Then I went back and listened to it. Yep, no rhythm whatsoever. I am a rockstar. (You’re reading the sarcasm in that, right?) So I have apologetically posted a second video of the same pedals, showcasing their more rhythmic qualities. And for some reason, I make the strangest sounds in between the different rhythmic passages. No, not cool ones with the guitar. With my mouth. It’s odd.

But you can check that post with the new additional shootout video here:

Fulldrive Vs. Tim Vs. Liquid Blues

And lastly, for the first time since 1984, all is right with the world. I have never, ever wanted a piece of gear more:

None More Black

It’s beautiful, really. Almost indescribable. Almost as if the world wasn’t really turning all this time, until you saw that picture. And if you’re not quite sure what is going on right now, allow me, if you will, to change your life:

Sorry, I couldn’t find a Spinal Tap clip with the actual ‘None More Black’ record reference, or the clip where they sign the black record with the black felt marker (hehe), but I’m pretty sure these will do. :)

  1. Karl,

    Your the greatest for posting the pad MP3s Thank you for that. And thank you for you infromative and funny posts. I founf them by accident late in the game and have gone back read everyone. reread a few too


  2. Woaaaahhhh, these are EXACTLY what I needed after coming home from school extremely exhausted. Thanks Karl!

    Also, you don’t happen to have any Dutch roots? With the ‘Verkade’ last name and all..

  3. John–thanks for the kind words. I’m glad the pads can be of some use!

    Jeff–lol Good form, my friend! :)

    Rhoy–yep, you are right. In fact, on the neck pickup, only the Tim seemed to retain its definition. Stupid most expensive one sounding the best. hehe 😉

    LePaul–right on, bro. So glad they can be of some enjoyment.

    And actually, ya…my father is full Dutch, so I’m half Dutch on his side. Are you Dutch as well?

  4. muhahaha. did some google stalking after seeing your name on the soundclick page and found your band’s myspace page and read up on your church. good stuff!

  5. Hey Karl – I just discovered your site a few days ago and I’ve had to apologize to my wife three times already for spending so much time here. How do you stage your overdrive pedals? Tim first, Mosferatu second??? Do you ever play with both of them on at the same time? I think I read in one of your posts where you describe it but now I can’t find it. I’ve read too much for my peabrain to retain. Thanks for all the helpful info. Help…

  6. Matthew–oh, yikes. lol The band page?! Oh mercy. I knew that was gonna come out sometime. In my defense, we broke up three years ago, and those recordings were made 4 or 5 years ago. That’s the reason for the unfortunate tone, and even more unfortunate haircut. 😉 Oh, I hope google just randomly put that link up, and that if anyone else searches, it will stay hidden. lol

    Bud–glad you’re enjoying the site, and welcome! Great to have you here. As for staging, I tend to do higher gain first, then lower gain. That way, when they are on at the same time, they are working more to boost each other, rather than change the sound. So I go Mosferatu into the Tim. That way, when I have the Mosferatu on, I can use the lower gain Tim to just boost the sound of the Mosferatu. If it were the other way around, the Tim would actually change the input gain into the Mosferatu, and I’d get a totally different tone. And sometimes it’s fun to experiment that way. But usually I feel like that type of stacking adds a harshness that I don’t care for. But that’s just my humble opinion! :) Cheers, and again, welcome!

    Golovelive–no problem! :) I’m so stoked they can be of some use!

    Robin–thanks for the kind words, brother!

    Andrew–I almost never go without them now. Even when doing solo acoustic. Granted, you do need them lower in the mix though, for just acoustic. With a full band, I like them higher at intros and outros so that it sounds like a big pad. For just acoustic, I usually like them just high enough to hear. So no one would ever know there was another instrument going underneath the acoustic…but were you to stop playing the pad, everyone would immediately notice how the fullness went away. Hopefully that males sense…not sure I described it right. hehe Anyway, cheers!

  7. Karl- Very seriously considering trying them out, although it will require another man to stop them and make them go. I would def love them in other keys, say maybe E and Eb?

  8. 相当一部分“先富起来”的人,尤其是官僚买办资产阶级、贪官污吏狗衙役,土豪劣绅资本家,及其马弁走狗,闲的难受,胖的发愁,没有理想,没有抱负,吸毒、打炮、飙车、任性,在国内横冲直撞,上国外丢人现眼。当代统治阶级不应该反思吗?

  9. There is not a lot of a new reason any more. That were once this cottons ended up a lot better than nylons not to mention scratchy wools not to mention these kinds of, which means virtually any mention of the “synthetic” clothes may possibly even now bring up eye brows amid lots of people.

  14. In terms of wearing footless tights during the day in winter, they can be worn with almost anything. Many people think that to keep warm you should just put on your big winter jumper that is almost like a dress with your denim jeans. However just because denim jeans are trousers doesn’t mean they are the warmest. There is nothing worse than wearing a pair of wet jeans, whereas thick footless tights can provide almost the same coverage and without the unwanted sogginess!
