Tremolos interest me – as a good design has its own pulse, which can sound lively like the instrument itself.
This was my first effect design which I started in high school. It started from scratch, to be completely unique and not sound like any other existing effect.
By shining a fading light against a photo-sensitive device, this tremolo uses all analog photo-coupling to restrict and fluctuate the output volume. There is automatic perceived volume compensation for the full sweep of the controls.
