Noob question, what piece of equipment is he using to make those electronic sounds/effects? I'm thinking of pulling the old 7 string and DAW out again and having some fun with this kind of music. Really digging it.

Any tips on getting a similar sound? I just use some free VST's from dskmusic

You know that's a sequencer. what he is playing on guitar has nothing to do with that shit on the board. and him turning the knibs really isn't even necessary. that's just just for the video. what he is playing on guitar is literally just open notes.

if you think that's fun get down your rhythms. and just sequence random notes in guitar pro. and run it through some vst that makes it a keyboard.

Oh ok, cheers.

So just to clarify, you are saying that the guitar is basically just for a hard ''rhythm'' effect to add some power to the track, and the keys are just electronic improv over the top? because I showed it to a mate of mine who is right into his electronic music and he said that would be very hard to recreate live because of how complex/random the notes and phrases are

The guitar is exactly what you see, chugging on an open string, playing one note. There's no effects or anything on that.

The rest of it is a synthesizer with an arpeggiator, or something programmed with the same type of pattern that one would generate. Most bands who play music like this just create it once and play it back, they're not literally recreating it live by playing each note on a keyboard.

Basically, just turn on the arpeggiator and let it go, then press a key to change the root note of the arpeggio. Same concept as the video below.
