Hi John, you are a greata guitar player, am a big fan of porcupine tree as your own work, like guitar player, i want to ask to you, how do you do use the effects? and get a clear sound?
I really work at using top level effects and creating a balance of not to much effect over guitar sound. It also really helps if your amp has an effects loop, although I went years with out using an effects loop. People sometimes run the effects very hot, if I don't have an effects loop, the secret is to turn delays and verbs barely up...using them more as a wash and a color, it works great.
