Analog-modeled Tremolo Plugin
Analog Guitar Tremolo Effects and Beyond with Beat-Synced Rhythmic Chopping
Tremolator emulates the tremolo effect of classic hardware like the old Fender Vibrolux guitar amp and even the great tremolo sound of the Wurlitzer electric piano.
Soundtoys added dynamic control of speed and depth that lets the tremolo respond to the music, and then tossed in MIDI sync to lock to your tremolo to tempo. Of course, they also included their programmable Rhythm Editor that lets you write custom patterns and turn Tremolator into an outrageous rhythmic auto-gate. Vintage guitar effect and modern remix tool at your service.
Tremolo of Old
Gearheads that they are, Soundtoys broke out the test equipment and analysed the waveforms created by some of their favorite old hardware. Then we used their custom LFO waveshape editor built into Tremolator to perfectly recreate them.
It's very interesting to look at these shapes and see why each of these vintage pieces has a unique sound. Pass that through Analog mode, which emulates going in and out of a piece of analogue hardware, and you've got all the pieces of a great sounding tremolo.
Chop Shop: Auto-Gate Mania
Switch the nice smooth tremolo waveforms over to a sharp squarewave and you turn this into a monster of an auto-gate. You can lock it to MIDI with the flip of a switch, then select 1/8th notes, 16th notes or whatever fits the rhythm you need.
If straight note pulses aren't what you need, use the Rhythm Editor to write your own cool groove (You can even pull a groove from the library). More? Add some swing or shuffle, accents, and analogue mode. You can even use the Waveshape Editor to tighten or loosen the gate time.
In the Tweak menu, you'll find the Dynamics controls. These parameters let your playing control the speed and/or depth of the modulation.
You can create cool speed ups or slow downs based on how loud or soft you play. You can create smooth increases in depth as your chords fade out, or heavy tremolo that fades away. Plus there are already some great presets in the Dynamics folder that you can "tweak" to fit your needs.
