I love Steve Vai's demo video of his Ibanez Jemini pedal, and this one part has a beautiful sound that I don't quite understand how he got.

Link.

It begins at about 5:15 into the video. He states that the distortion pedal is played through the clean channel, I don't quite get that, isn't a distortion pedals purpose to have... well distortion without using the amp setting itself? Anyways, how did he get that certain sound/tone? It is really cool sounding.

Also, while I'm asking questions. What effect is used here? It's used throughout the whole into, and it's the kind of subtle *wahhh* sound.

Thanks for the help!

Its volume swells as well as some sort of modulation, chorus probobaly.

I think he's implying that you can use the smoother channel almost like a boost on the overdrive channel on the amp.
