on those really fast cliché solos like dreamtheater, dragonforce, joe satriani, opeth etc i hear that the guitarist uses an effect (other than delay, reverb, ..) its kinda hard to explain.

but anyway after looking a lot on you tube i still havent found what effect this is, is it the digitech whammy or some boss pedal?

help me out here (sorry i can't be more specific.)

You'll need to post specific songs, you can't just say "oh so and so uses it" and expect us to know what you're talking about.

i dont really know how much this will help, but on my amp, there is a built in effect called slap back. it reall makes solos sound more...well more like a solo.

do you mean when they divebomb using the whammy bar on their guitars? if so, you either need a new guitar that has a whammy bar on it, or you need to cough up the cash for a digitech whammy pedal.

well, there are hundreds of kinds of delay. so it's probably some kind of delay and/or reverb effect.

it's possible that you're hearing the sound of a noise gate and a compressor as well.

unless you're talking about that dive-bomb, pitch dropping sound, which is either a whammy pedal or a whammy bar in a floyd rose system

Find us a YouTube clip where the effect is used, and tell us from when till when (timecode).

I got myself a rare Zoom PFX-9003, which allows you to build your own effects by combining multiple parameters. It's not pro, but great to experiment, especially if you travel a lot.

They are hard to find nowadays, but Korg and Behringer make similar devices.

i mean like this effect of the guitar solo at the beginning of the song.

The only thing that you could be talking about is the trem, and the dive bombs. It's just a type of guitar bridge, it's not an effect.
#16
I'm farily sure you're just talking about an overdrive.
gear:
-Ibanez ART 120 (w/EMG 81/85)
-Ibanez RG 1570
-Peavey 6505
-Tube-Town TTC 212V
-ISP Decimator G-String
-Maxon OD-9
-T-rex Fuel tank Junior

Coming soon:
-BBE Sonic Maximizer
-EQ

from that video it could well just be a boost/overdrive, cos all it seems to do it boost alexis sound for his solo
