Anyone know how to get these cool echoes in background?

Just wondering how to get those weird background sounds behind the guitar? Gives it a really cool effect

Thanks for any tips

That's a pretty complex sound. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a synth playing along with the guitar. I also feel like I've heard a sound on the axe fx that did sometching sorta similar.

But I guess the point is I don't think you're going to get that kind of sound with your run of the mill effects. A reverb like the neunaber wet reverb would be a good start. The modulation is the weird part though. The more I think about it the more I feel like it's a synth haha

The effect on the guitar sounds like a heavy room echo. I can replicate something like that on my Eventide Eclipse Harmonizer. You can definitely hear some synth in the background.

That's some incredible tone. I can get similar sounds with my Verbzilla but not anything as complex

In the background is a Synth Pad, with a LP filter with a frequency sweep with a low resonance.

And if you guys find that a complex sound, then you should listen to some more electronic music

Guitar is Reverb with a fairly long tail and Wet/Dry Level.

Yeah it's definitely a synth pad in the background. If you want to replicate it, try some of the VSynths that are out there, NI Absynth is great for pads, as is Rob Papen's Albino.

Try Sytrus. It has like a million pad presets with that cheesy 80s sound. The filter sweep is definitely controlled with an envelope; each chord swells for a bit, then calms back down.
