In this Rig Rundown, Brian Setzer’s guitar tech, Tyler Sweet, discusses Setzer’s settings for the Roland RE-301. At 18:35, he says “Once in a while, he uses some chorus for couple of tunes. More reverb, less reverb type thing. For the most part it just stays the same. If he feels that he’s not getting enough something, he’ll go over and play with it.”more
"I wanted to explore these new instruments to find out what they could do. Try to make a new language for them. I’d been working at home with the synth and drum machine. Began in 1978 with an Arp Odyssey, an Elka string machine, a Roland 301 Space Echo and a Roland CR78 drum machine and a four track. " "CM: 'Can we have a list of your gear?' JF: 'I couldn’t possibly list all of Benge’s gear but if I work alone then sometimes I record the CR78 and then work on top of this with both analogue and digital synths and effects. I mainly use the Aryp Odyssey and the Roland Vocoder. I believe in using a limited palette of sounds - with just one or two in real focus for the track. The star sounds. This allows for consistency and some innovation at the same time.
