The Harder Side of St. Vincent’s Live Rig: Custom Rack, Eventide Stompboxes, MIDI

Guitarists spend time and money creating the appropriate array of effects pedals and switches to get the proper sound while being able to switch to another, at any given time during their performance.  This is true for Annie Clark of St. Vincent, who has an extraordinary rack (for her guitar of course), that comes with MIDI output effects incorporated into her system.  She uses Ableton and Reason to support her hardware.

The entire rig  contains more effects pedals and stomp boxes than can be listed in this short article, but with 3 patch points – it can be setup in under 5 minutes.
