The World of Modulation
The Guitar Gear Guide • 6m 11s
Modulation is an umbrella term that refers to effects that modulate your guitar signal in various ways, and these effects include Tremolo, Phasers, Flangers, and Chorus/Vibrato. It’s important to note that modulation itself is not an effect, but rather the process by which an effect is produced. For example, a Phaser will create a phasing effect on your guitar signal, which sound much different than a flanging effect. Modulation effects can even vary the pitch and timing of your guitar signal.
