I will begin by using Charlie's suggestion for David Gilmour. I have read that from the 80's to the 90's Gilmour used a 550ms delay time. Previous to that he used 380ms, then 440ms. I have set p47 at 550ms and find it wonderful for anything I play using a Boss OD2 Turbo Overdrive. The notes soar!
I altered the one of the Edge ones, I turned on of the the echoes off and had one set to 419ms for Pride. I might do the settings for the rest of his single delays. Is it the last 2 echos of the 6 you used for the Edge/modern delay Charlie? Matthew
Hi Matthew, Yes, I used the last two delays for Streets, and the last delay for Haven't Found, but with the Modern Delays you can use any delay tap you like and even set them in any time order you like. Just make sure the ones you don't want have their head levels and feedback levels set to Off. Regards, Charlie
Hi Mat, Re editing patches, I think its just a matter of learning how to navigate around the options in the menu windows, using the Next button to select an option, and the Enter button to execute the option. With a bit of practice, it should become easier! It does open a lot of possibilities for those who want to fine tune, or experiment with different echoes. Regards John
Thanks to Jim for starting this thread, it's a really good idea. I came across a couple of sites which give some good information about David Gilmour & The Edge with regard to echo. Being fortunate enough to own a Hall & Collins Signature Echo I have tried a few and got really good results. The unit is really straightforward to program. On both sites there is also some interesting reading too.
A very interesting thread this! I didn't know the editor on the HCSE allowed as much as it does until I read this post, I thought it was just for setting up the parameters echo levels & saving etc but even allows you to add echos or even re time the whole patch or even create completely new ones. It's absolutely brilliant & so simple to edit with. Still amazed & very pleased after 3 weeks of ownership.

I should point out that there is no such thing as a completely blank patch on the Hall & Collins Signature Echo. Several parameters are hidden, such as echo EQ settings and wow and flutter, and these settings are specific to a unit type, apart from the Modern Delays which are more a one size fits all type of thing. So, as explained in the instruction manual, if you want an echo sound that is based on a Binson then you have to start with a Binson patch so that its EQ and wow and flutter effects will be included.
