Use the pedal for volume swells to hide the sound of pick attack; start muted, roll up to full volume, then back down before the end of the note.

How low can you set the delay time? At very low values on some gear you start to get weird filtering stuff. At about 7msec on some Line 6 gear I get something a little bit violinish.

well, I understand how to make the attack, but it needs to have enough technical oo I'm not.
Do something with the pedals do?

Have you already hooked your violin up to the ME-25, and are getting sound?

We can't tell you what effect to use or the settings because that's up to you. There are no specific delay times for use with a violin. It's entirely up to you to dial in the amount of delay you want.

- If you need help selecting and programming the effect I suggest you read the manual.
- If after reading the manual you still can't figure out how to select a delay and program it then ask specifically how to select the delay effect and adjust the parameters.

i don't think he actually has a violin, he wants to make his guitar sound like a violin i think. but all this still applies, there is no hard rules to getting a guitar to sound like a violin.

someone already mentioned rolling off the attack to make it sound bowed (best advice really), you can also use certain harmonizer settings as well to make it sound like a string section. delay? i wouldn't consider that something that makes guitar sound like a violin, but it sounds nice on violin tones.

Instead of the volume knob, you could also use the expression pedal. Can you use the expression pedal as the volume control? If yes, use it as your volume control and add some delay to make it sound cooler. Distortion helps to sustain the note.

He's playing over his own delay, his own echoes, as a backing track. The choice of scales, tone, etc. makes it sound a little bit like violins. Tap the SOLO/Tap Tempo switch twice with your foot while editing the delay (I don't own a ME-25, I'm guessing) and play a note. Hear for the rhythm as it echoes. DING, Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding... and then play something over the top in the same time. Keep experimenting and eventually you'll find the intervals and scales needed to make this kind of sound.

If you want things a bit easier you could also have a look at an e-bow.

Dual delay one set at about 300ms and one at about 1000ms, maybe some chorus to taste on slow setting about 30% wet, then do swells either via volume pedal or guitar volume to kill the attack. Might want to use fingers as well for a more round sound or just hammer with the left hand.

He's not using a violin, fly. He's trying to make his guitar sound like a violin.
Oh <face palm>!

The ME-25 doesn't have an attack effect (volume swell). So you need to use the exp pedal as mentioned. Easier than working the guitar volume. Also try some adding some compression to help with the sustain.

He even explains it in the beginning of the video you posted. So where's the problem?

So, what he said is you need overdrive, start with your guitar volume knob at 0 and pick your note and turn the volume up. Then he adds delay and that's how he gets those harmonies. You just need enough repeats and the right delay time to get harmonies.

This is a good example of this technique. He's just using delay to create those harmonies and volume knob to get that "violin" sound.

So really, you just wasted 20 bucks on an useless effect that you could as well do without any effects.

Did you even listen to us or the guy on the video? Because really... The guy in the video tells pretty clearly what you should do and the only effect you need is delay (and overdrive). You just need to use your guitar volume knob. As I said earlier, it could be done with a volume pedal too, and I'm pretty sure your ME25 has a volume pedal.
