Catalinbread Tremolo 8 Pedal

With eight separate specifically selected combos of trem, chorus, and reverb effects, Catalinbread's Tremolo 8 offers players nearly unlimited inspiration!

Designed to give players a wide array of trem, reverb and chorus tones from classic Fender-style to wacky options the Catalinbread Tremolo 8 was created for the modern player, offering a large array of tonal flavors to choose from. The compact design makes Tremolo 8 a pedalboard-friendly powerhouse!

The idea Catalinbread had was a digitized model of the Fender Showman’s "harmonic vibrato". The experiment was a resounding success, so Catalinbread started experimenting with more LFOs and more tremolo styles. Catalinbread engineers really liked the sound of tremolo splashing against a reverb like Magnatones or Vibro Champs and Catalinbread's previous work on the Topanga Burnside reflects this. At the same time, I'm a sucker for bigger ethereal reverbs so Catalinbread decided to add some trem-specific reverb algorithms and a subtle tone control.

After researching and implementing them to exhaustion, Catalinbread discovered that not all LFOs are created equal and some are much more equal than others. A sawtooth LFO leads to wild reverse-esque sonic manipulation and a fluttery compressed sound when set low. A square wave with a duty cycle control (“on'' time) leads to a thumping, stuttering reverb sound, so why not turbocharge the square wave to a few kilohertz and churn out some wacky sum and difference frequencies? In a completely different program, trem modulation with chorus floating on top sounded too good to leave out. When working on the Many Worlds Catalinbread had so read more much fun with the envelope-controlled phase angle that Catalinbread wanted something like that in here, so Catalinbread crafted an envelope-controlled trem rate with adjustable sensitivity and attack/decay, leading to head-spinning effects when letting chords ring out or when cranking some touch-sensitive solos.
