Make Your Guitar Sound Like a Pink Floyd Synthesizer
Bill Ruppert sent us this video which is part of the Effectology video series he does for Electro-Harmonix.
The key to Bill's videos are that they are all about how to produce "impossible sounds" using just a regular guitar and effect pedals.
In this video Bill shows how to make a regular guitar sound like the synthesizers used in the Pink Floyd song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" - all done using effect pedals!
If you don't have a Micro Synth similar sounds can be made with a distortion/OD pedal and a auto filter pedal.

Although the same volume balancing principle is used by all of these pedals, their approach, methodology and flexibility can vary. As such, your needs will depend on your playing style, be it versatility or simplicity and modern transparency or vintage style "warm" compression. Whatever your preference maybe, you will find a fitting compressor pedal right here in this list.
