Orianthi: Premier Guitar Interview 2013

You’ve said you’re going to keep touring with Alice Cooper as long as he’ll have you, but do you have plans for your own dates in the interim? 
Totally, I’m setting that up now, trying to fit it in around Alice and his tour dates. I have such fun playing onstage with him and it’s fun to be the guitar player, but I want to do my own dates so it’s all about finding the balance and figuring it all out.
What have you learned as a player, working on the Alice Cooper tour? 
They’re all like brothers to me, everyone in the band. I’ve learned a lot because there are so many parts in the songs. They’re great performers. We all have our own thing going on, like characters in a crazy Rocky Horror show. The first part of the tour I’d have blood all over my face and arms, and I’d be writing things on my arms and I had all of these Christian people thinking I was some sort of Satanist or something, with blood all over me and the guitar. I’m like no, I’m playing a part! I’m playing this irritable zombie onstage—I was called “Scarianthi” or “Gorianthi” for a while. Maybe I’ll be Frankenstein for the next one, I’m not quite sure.

Peter Blanchette,Elliot Gibbons: 11-string archguitar

When Peter Blanchette was just twenty years old he had the crazy idea of an expanded range instrument beyond a standard guitar "that sounded more like a lute, but was still a guitar." Thus was born the 11-string archguitar, custom built in 1981 by Walter Stanul. Blanchette's friend Elliot Gibbons had similar ideas and commissioned a second instrument from the same builder, but with a slightly different design.

In 2011, Blanchette received New England Public Radio Foundation's Arts and Humanities Award for outstanding individual artist.

Blanchette and Gibbons perform here inside the First Lutheran Church of Boston -- part of the "Bach Around the Clock" sun up to sun down birthday celebration event of J.S. Bach produced by Classical New England, WGBH.

I won't name names but you can see who he is in the comments section of the Youtube video I link to below. So, for that guy, and the rest of you to enjoy, here's a raw iPhone vid of the pedal running into my Port City Pearl. Yay! Hope you like!

Jeff Beck: Jam with Jeff

This April 18th-21st, Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp is proud to present TWO of the most prominent names in Rock 'n' Roll- Jeff Beck & Brian Wilson!

Being described as "one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock" by Rolling Stone Magazine and ranked in the TOP 3 alongside Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton on their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", Jeff Beck is a name that fits perfectly alongside Rock & Roll. Jeff Beck has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009) and has received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance SIX times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once.

Alongside Jeff Beck, the recent recipient of a 2013 Grammy Award for his "long-lost" but not forgotten masterpiece The SMiLE Sessions, Brian Wilson is a world-renown singer and performer named "one of the greatest living songwriters of the 20th century." This past summer, the hottest concert ticket the world over was the Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Reunion Tour with sold out shows across the globe. Brian will be bringing his personal longtime team of professional musicians including musical director and guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, band members Darian Sahanaja on keyboards, Probyn Gregory on bass, and Scott Bennett on drums to teach you everything about one of the great American songbooks.

Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp's four-day event is favorably priced at our Early Bird Rate for only $6499 but the experience, however, is priceless. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to jam out with Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck and so many more is like nothing you've ever seen before, or ever will again. Spots are limited, and filling up fast so act now!

News: Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator - classic chordal tones

Designed to work equally well with guitar or bass, the Orbital Modulator is a combination phaser, flanger, chorus, and tremolo modulation effects pedal in a powerful, cast-aluminum rack-mountable stompbox 

Woburn, MA—Source Audio, innovators of the award winning Hot Hand® Motion Controlled Effects and Soundblox effects pedals are introducing the Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator. The Orbital Modulator is a combination phaser, flanger, chorus, and tremolo modulation effects pedal, designed to work equally well with guitar or bass. This powerful cast-aluminum stompbox offers rack-mount function and flexibility in a surprisingly compact 4.5 x 4.5 inch footprint.

Source Audio introduced The Orbital Modulator at the 2013 Winter NAMM Show in Anahiem, CA where it received praise from both Guitar Player and Premier Guitar magazines. Guitar Player called the pedal, “an insanely flexible, killer sounding mod box that runs the gamut from classic to otherworldly.” Premier Guitar raved that the O-Mod packs “just about every modulation flavor imaginable with some extra Source Audio tricks and filters.”

The Orbital Modulator offers three chorus effects from a classic single voiced chorus to mega-lush two and four voiced effects. Its five flavors of flanger include a remarkably realistic tape flange (aka through zero flange) and two thoroughly unique Resonator flangers. Five luscious phaser effects range from a simple Uni-Vibe inspired modulation to highly complex 8 and 12 stage phasers. Tremolo can be embedded into any of the Orbital’s effect types for dramatic three-dimensional effects like rotary speaker simulation or thumping chopper-like amplitude modulations. Each effect type offers an endless range of possibilities with nine adjustable parameters including DEPTH, FEEDBACK, DELAY, FREQUENCY, VOLUME, LoRETAIN (Source Audio’s own low-end preserving algorithm), TREMOLO, MIX, and SPEED.

In an effort to make the Orbital Modulator totally user friendly, a reset function has been included, which automatically sets any of the effects to a meticulously fashioned default setting personally dialed in by Source Audio’s tone obsessed engineering combo of Bob Chidlaw and Jesse Remignanti. Users can save two presets that are easily recalled via two footswitches. Plus, the Orbital offers “Universal Bypass” which offers a choice between true-bypass or a special analog buffered bypass.

The Orbital allows users to control each effect’s modulation either internally or externally. Sine and square wave LFO offer vibrant internal modulation with on-the-fly Tap Tempo SPEED adjustment. Plus forward and reverse Envelope Followers offer effect modulation reactive to incoming guitar or bass signals. The Orbital is also compatible with MIDI control signals, the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal, or any of the Hot Hand® Motion Sensor Rings. Each external control device operates effect modulation or can be assigned to any of the nine adjustable parameters.

Source Audio’s proprietary state-of-the-art 56-bit Digital Signal Processor and 24-bit converters deliver precision control and pristine sound quality well beyond most analog pedals and many of the over-sized digital units on the market today. The unit comes with a 9VDC power supply.

Source Audio was founded in January 2005 by former engineers, scientists, and executives of Analog Devices, Kurzweil Music Systems, and Thomas H. Lee Partners. Since the 2006 release of its flagship product, the Hot Hand motion-sensing ring, Source Audio’s distortion, modulation and Hot Hand products have been recognized through multiple awards from Guitar Player, Guitar World, Bass Player, and Premier Guitar Magazines. 

MSRP for the Soundblox 2 Orbital Modulator is $249 (street: $169). It is available now. For more info and a list of authorized dealers, or call Source Audio directly at 781.932.8080.
