In this video, we'll explore how U2 guitarist 'The Edge' gets his iconic guitar sounds.
We'll specifically look at how to play the song With Or Without You
Amp settings and general advice down the bottom of the page!
I used the below amp settings in garageband to model the tone used by The Edge on 'With or without you'. This simulates a Vox AC30 with little gain, the bass all the way down and presence (high mids) all the way up.
The delay time and amount is crucial for this song and others to sound correct. The delay must be set to a 3/16th delay (410ms at 110 bpm) to get the right effect. The number of delays (repeats) is set fairly low, while mix (loudness of delays) should be set high- all the way up in my opinion!
