Around 2008, I was so into this song and spent lots of time transcribing it by ear.
There were not many video resources back then. I think I had just made it harder to play with my tapping harmonics rather than gently touching and picking 🙂
I used my trusty Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar with Vox Tonelab LE directly going into my M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 PCI card. In addition, I panned the whole song to the hard left so Steve Morse‘s channel got almost disappeared.
This way I had lots of space for my track.
As for the gear goes, I was a big fan of Vox processors and got myself a Tonelab LE back in the day.
When I looked up for their new generation multi-effects and processors, I wasn’t able to find many. They probably focus on their amp segment which makes sense. However, they still manufacture smaller versions of Tonelabs.
