• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

How is this Wah-Wah made?

Are you talking about the Wah-Wah sound at the beginning of the song (and repeated a few times throughout)?

There is a device that guitarists use (I"ve been one for 40yrs) called a wah pedal. It is a fairly simple device. It is essentially a tone control but instead of a rotating knob, the pedal is moved much like a gas pedal in a car: more gas = higher frequencies are accentuated. Less gas = higher frequencies are reduced. The effect can also be produced without a "pedal". The rate and intensity of the effect (change of tone from low to high) can be controlled eleectronically.

You can probably Youtube wah wah effects pedals to get a better understanding. I hope this answers your question.

That's what I thought it was given the constant chord changes. I know there's a ton of ways to make wah wah so wasn't sure and just recently started listening to stuff from my library and felt curiousity arousing again.
