Dave Koltai, Pigtronix founder, came to our shop in CT when he first decided to make effects pedals, and showed us his original Envelope Phaser. We gave him our opinion and some hints and I think we were his first dealer. We are the only dealer who still has those original EP-1 pedals, as he showed us how to calibrate them and get them working well.
Tremvelope is a tremolo pedal that allows thedynamics of your playing to
change the speed and depth of the effect. The result is an intuitive, all analog
sound that takes
a classic stompbox concept to a whole new
Tremvelope is versatile. With the envelope switched off, you get a
high fidelity optical tremolo with stereo panning outputs. Tremvelope’s fat
sounding audio path is modulated by an LFO with SPEED, DEPTH and WAVEFORM
When the ENVELOPE is switched on, the tremolo is influenced by
what you play. The SPEED and DEPTH knobs can each be assigned to increase or
decrease in response to the strength of the signal coming from your instrument.
These changes in SPEED and DEPTH start from where the knobs are set and
independently move in the direction assigned by the user.
ACCELERATION switch adjusts the response time of the tremolo to changes in your
playing and the SENSITIVITY knob provides control over the amount of increase it
takes to create changes in the tremolo settings. Expression pedal inputs for
speed, and vol/pan add external foot control to this animated beast of a pedal.
There is also a TRIGGER input for running the Tremvelope late in an effects
chain but still allowing your clean signal (or even a different instrument
entirely) to control the envelope directly.
Tremvelope achieves a
stimulating state of sonic flux by altering both speed and depth in sync with
what you are playing. The resulting psycho-acoustic effects are sometimes
reminiscent of the Leslie rotating speaker cabinet, whose signature sound is
most pronounced when the rate of its speaker’s rotation is changing. The
continual changes in rate and depth achieved by the Tremvelope are highly
interactive with the musician. Since the Tremvelope is sensitive to what you
play and you are sensitive to how your music sounds, there is an instantaneous
feedback between the motion of the tremolo and your motions on the instrument.
Go forth and modulate!
