Default My 1st thread: How do you get this Rhodes sound?!

1st of all, easy everyone ! Noticed the forum a few days ago when browsing basses on the shop, decided to have a butchers and I've got to say the forum looks wicked, so much stuff covered on here, lots of interesting stuff!

So more to the point, there's this particular rhodes sounds that I hear used on a lot of old house & garage, but I struggle to get that sound out of EVP88! It sounds like a phaser set with a really fast rate, but whenever I try and emulate it, it just ends up sounding over the top and messy... I reckon it could also possibly be a fast wah type filter, not sure though. Here's some examples:

* comes in at 1.03!


Another example, (one of my own vinyls ), rhodes comes in at 0.15:


Thanks

For a classic Rhodes "phasey" effect, people typically used an EHX or MXR phaser... however, the examples you've linked sound more like they are using heavy tremelo and/or a flanger.

...or, if you happen to have a UAD card, try taking the CE-1 plug-in for a spin in vibrato mode.

Check the CE-1 SISO Demo on the video tab here:

Thanks for the reply dave.

Yep Im aware of the EHX (Small Stone phaser) sounds great on rhodes Never heard a MXR Phase 90 on rhodes but does sound great on guitar though!

I was thinking maybe it could be a combo of heavy tremolo and phaser possibly? Like I said though, still not got a even half decent result lol!

No UAD unfortunately mate, just standard MB Pro at the minute. Would be interested to hear that though, CE-1s are nice man, real vintage choruses would love to hear how the plugin sounds!

Saw some of your pics in the 19 inch rack thread by the way, nice studio! And nice DIY too
