Tremolator - Tremolo and Auto-Gate
Need tremolo? Soundtoys' got you covered. 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.
They 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 let’s 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
Gear heads that Soundtoys are, they broke out the test equipment and analyzed the waveforms created by some of their favorite old hardware. Then they 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 the Analog mode, which emulates going in and out of a piece of analog 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 your rhythm.
If straight note pulses isn’t what you need, use the Rhythm Editor to write your own cool groove and then add some swing or shuffle, accents, and the analog 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 our Dynamics folder that you can “tweak” to fit your needs.
