      Hi there,

      I am wondering if anyone has experience writing a U2 crystal setting- the one that comes standard is close- but not as close as it could be. Any thoughts?

      U2 and Coldplay and others use a patch they affectionately call shimmer which seems really close to the crystal echoes patch but with different settings to my ear.  I'd love any sugestions people might have.

      hey….i posted a few days ago a decent "shimmer" setting alal U2 for the PF.  I have downloaded the update for the PF and seems to be a little easier to dial in.  As stated in my previous post, i did not upload the patch because i am worthless :).  I did, however, list where the buttons were for each knob.  I havent "fine tuned" it a lot.  I just found it by a great deal of knob twisting.  I know some ppl here can probably dial it in much faster and will probably have a better "shimmer" sound than this one, but this works for me.  By all means, fine tune it and post your results as well  This will be greatly appreciated since i love to play their music. 

      here is the patch i use :

      Shimmer sound ala U2: "Crystal" setting.   Lets start at the top left of the controls

      first row top from left to right:  9 oclock, 12 oclock, 5 oclock, 5 oclock, 1 oclock then 5 oclock

      second row bottom left to right:  5 oclock, 5 oclock, 12 oclock then 12 oclock

      thats it!!!  remember these settings arent set in stone.  Play and have fun

      BEAUTIFUL DAY solo only settings: "Synth" setting.  This is a very cool sound i came across accidentally.  It sounds a little oriental to me 🙂

      Again lets start at the Top Row and go Left to Right:

      5 oclock, 7 oclock, 2 oclock, 7 oclock, 7 oclock, 7 oclock

      Bottom Row from left to right:

      5 oclock, 7 oclock, 5 oclock and 5 oclock
