Classic Tremolo Controls
The Rate and Depth controls work together to do the job you expect of any tremolo. The rate can be set from slowly evolving to glitchy fast, while the depth can be set from flat to maximum dynamic range.
The Tone Shaping Mode and Color control work together to provide a vast tonal variety. Three different tone shaping modes provide either a flat, transparent response, a mid peak, or a warm high-end rolloff. The Color control sweeps each harmonic profile from subtle to intense. These modes are designed to respond to the tremolo movement and have a responsiveness that can’t be achieved by putting EQ before or after a tremolo.
The LFO Type and Shape controls work together to provide classic sine, triangle, and square shapes, and at the twist of a knob, an organic blend of new waveforms thanks to the FM modulation driving the LFO section.
Set the tremolo rate with the Rate control or Tap footswitch. When using the Tap control, the rate glides to the new tempo, enabling gentle or dramatic tempo sweeps.
