HEY YOU, from THE WALL, Pink Floyd, originally played by David Gilmour.
This solo is a perfect piece of music, in the original studio version there are a lot of tracks all together, perfectly mixed. I decided to record a cover version in between from a Studio and a Live one. All the sounds were done with the Kemper Profiling Amplifier, that I personally adjusted and then directly recorded without any additional processing.
- This is my AUDIO version in High Quality
- Here the corresponding VIDEO version:
- GEAR USED
I recorded 3 guitar lines;
1 – the main guitar track (in the video the upper one);
2 – the secondary guitar line that play sustained notes on the third string, starting from B ‘4th fret’ up to A ’14th fret’ (in the video the lower/right one);
3 – the third guitar line was done with the fantastic Kemper Pitch Shifter, 3 voices: the main, the Octave and the Third above the Octave; I double tracked this on the left and on the right side (in the video is the lower/left one).
Fender Stratocaster Vintage USA ’57 of 1986, BRIDGE Pickup, Kemper Profiling Amplifier User Rig with the profile of David Gilmour HiWatt used on The Wall !!! To record all I used the Audio Interface Mbox 3 Pro, Sequoia Software as DAW and Sony Vegas to elaborate the Video parts.

Here you can download the Kemper Profiler Amplifier Rigs I tweaked for the entire song (including Initial arpeggio and final Outro):
For the Kemper Rig I used a Commercial Profile from TAF Pack4 HiWatt DG100 Profile: ‘AF4-70 DG HW Cranked2’. You can buy this profile here: The Amp Factory Pack 4
Substitute only the Amp of my Rig (click below to download) with the Commercial one and use these settings (Gain 6.0, Definition 5.0, DirMix 1.4) . The same information/settings are reported in the Rig on the various Tags of the temporary Amp inserted in the Rig (so you can easily download my Rig and read all from Rig Manager).

The Backing Track I used was played by some friends of mine some time ago… Download here various Backing Tracks:
This is a classic example where both fantasy & sound create a unique mix that will remains in the history…
