I want to be able to pre record guitar swells in every key, and then use them in a live setting to be played under the clean melody parts. What would be the best pedal for this?
thanks

Digitech JamMan Looper. It has 99 slots to save pre-made loops into.

not to sound like a smart ass or anything, but do you have two guitarists? if you did i'd definitely suggest having one do the swells instead of a recording...in my experience with live settings, sometimes tempos change a lil bit and then get back on track, sometimes they don't, and if you've got a recording and that happens...well...then you have a lil bit of a tracking problem and a mess.

i think it'd be easier to pre-record clean melody parts than the other way around, but that's my two cents!!

yea i see the concerns you guys have brought up. Is there a decently price effect pedal that might also create this type of thing on the fly. Its not a huge part of my bands sound so i dont want to invest too much, but it would be nice to have a bit more "atmosphere" in the clean parts.

thanks

This.

Our band often races through songs, and we don't realize it until we listen to the recordings afterwards.

If you want more atmosphere, then try a delay pedal to open the sound up a bit.

you never mentioned if you had a second guitarist? if not maybe it's a song that your bass player could pick up a spare guitar and do without bass for the song?

i would say the best way to go IF you REALLY want more atmosphere is having someone switch from bass to a second guitar (assuming you're the only guitarist?) or keyboards

I'd just use a volume pedal.

IMHO, that's what they're for!
There's also a pedal called a Boss Slow Gear, now discontinued, that does this, but it's not perfect. (in fact, IIRC, it barely works at all when fed by a high gain/distorted signal).

Look into the (byoc, I think...) lazy sprocket, it's a copy since the Boss pedals are tough to find cheap.

Which would be perfect if he weren't trying to do this live.

I'd invest in a volume pedal if I were you. That or just live without it.
