Note sets the tremolo rate using musical durations, ranging from a whole note: 1, to a thirty-second note: 1/32.
The Note control supports clicking, dragging, and the arrow keys.
Use Shift + ← or → to “lock” the current row when changing notes.
Looking for something slower than a whole note, or faster than a thirty-second note? Use the Rate Multiplier to get at those outliers.
Determines how the Tempo is set: either manually or synced from the host/DAW.
Controls the absolute tremolo rate in hertz (Hz).
Rate is active when Rate Mode is set to Hz.
Continuously varies the tremolo wave shape from triangle to sine to square .
Both triangle and sine types produce fairly smooth-sounding tremolo. Sine sounds a bit deeper; triangle sounds a bit sharper.
Square wave tremolo produces hard chopping and has the sharpest sound of the three wave types.
Controls the symmetry of the tremolo modulation’s rise and fall.
- At 50%, the tremolo rise and fall are symmetrical and take the same amount of time.
- At 0%, the tremolo rise is much faster than its fall — producing a sharper attack.
- At 100%, the tremolo rise is much slower than its fall — producing a softer attack.
Controls the amount of tube coloration.
- 0% is totally clean: no harmonic distortion, tonal coloration, or noise.
- 200% is the exact opposite.
Tube Color includes a meter embedded in the slider. This meter shows the THD (total harmonic distortion) added to the signal, up to 13% THD.
Trem Control offers a couple different tremolo types — each with their own unique sounds and applications.
|Standard||Amplitude modulation: the tremolo you think of when you think of tremolo.|
|Harmonic||Featured on many classic Fender amps from the mid-century, harmonic tremolo divides the highs and lows, modulating them out of phase to create a gorgeous, intoxicating wobble.|
|Deep Harmonic||A more extreme version of the classic harmonic tremolo — can sound almost like a phasor, or someone shaking a metal sheet.|
|Bass||Modulates the lows only.|
|Treble||Modulates the highs only — great for more subtle tremolo effects.|
|Air||Modulates the highest “air band” frequencies only.|
|Mid/Side||Modulates the mid and side out-of-phase (only available in stereo).|
|Mid Only||Modulates the mid only (only available in stereo).|
|Side Only||Modulates the side only (only available in stereo).|
