About 3000 years from now, while vacationing in a dark corner of some dark galaxy, Dr. Scientist is going to invent some pretty cool shapes. Squares and triangles, to be exact. (You've maybe already heard of these shapes thanks to a mess-up involving certain time-space... things... but lawyers are involved and we can't say more.)
Dr. Scientist doesn't want to use these wild shapes just for neat looking pizzas though... he wants to make cool sounds with them! Sounds that will get quiet... then loud again... then quiet... then loud... Or maybe even sounds that will start... then stop... then start... then stop... at all kinds of different rates and with a fancy blinking light indicative of the aforementioned rates!
A special team of Dr. Scientist Tremolizers was given the task of harnessing the essences of squares and triangles, and then forcing that essence onto guitar tones. Their mastery of the shapes has culminated in... THE TREMOLESSENCE!
Dr. Scientist knows you've been searching... longing for a really versatile, transparent, and most importantly, noise-free, tremolo effect. One that makes all the cool sounds the cool kids are into and does it in stereo.
Like gentle swells to full on/off chops, plucky, piano-like attacks to fade-ins, and gated sounds that let almost none to almost all the sound through... all possible with the SHAPE control and the choice of triangle and square waveforms on the upper toggle switch.
The DEPTH control lets you adjust the prominence of the tremolo effect. All the way down and the tremolo effect is very subtle, all the way up results in really dramatic sounds. (Also controllable with a TRS expression pedal with 10k resistance or higher)
The RATE control allows for a really wide range of effect rates, from very slow to very fast. (Also controllable with a TRS expression pedal with 10k resistance or higher)
VOLUME and TREBLE can be used to set these parameters exactly how you want for your sound. The Tremolessence can go quieter or louder than your bypassed signal and the tone can be made to sound much warmer or much brighter than your bypassed signal, or exactly the same as your bypassed signal... however you like it best!
The lower toggle switch is used to put the pedal into momentary hold mode. In Hold mode the tremolo effect is only engaged when you hold down the stomp switch. The RISE knob controls how long it takes the effect to ramp in to full depth (still set by the DEPTH knob).
Inside the box you'll find a little push-button switch on the pcb that chooses how the stereo output works. The Tremolessence is stereo in and out, two separate but identical signal paths, and you can choose between having the output pan left and right or be in sync.
From classic to futuristic tremolo sounds with classically futuristic good looks, Dr. Scientist guarantees you'll find the essence of millions of awesome sounding tremolo tones inside THE TREMOLESSENCE! (MSRP $250)
The Supplementary Informationessence:
Tremolessences contain some very big sounding squares and triangles, but they occupy a space of only 6cm (2.4") wide by 11cm (4.3") long by 5cm (2") tall, depending on the knobs. They weigh less than a pound, far less than the squares and triangles contained within. Weird, eh?
Having dominion over squares and triangles is hungry work, so Tremolessences enjoy regulated 9VDC using the standard BOSS style 2.1mm center negative plug and about 75mA of current. There is no battery inside a Tremolessence, that wouldn't even be a light snack for it.
Tremolessences are true bypass, truly great at tremoloing, and truly hand finished and assembled.
