You may have caught the Old Blood Noise Endeavors WhiteCap Asynchronous Dual Tremolo at Summer NAMM 2017, and, if you were wondering if it was ever going to be released, now you got your answer.
The effect consists of two tremolo circuits interacting with each other:
- a three-control analog tremolo
- and a multi-shape digital tap tremolo
The two effects interact with each other creating new, unheard trembling textures.
Holding the footswitch enables Ramp mode to gradually change between the two speeds.
Each tremolo features a volume boost, and a series/parallel toggle lets you run analog into digital or both side by side. It is also possible to control the tap via the expression pedal input.
This is one of the newly released pedals visitors of the Brooklyn Stompbox Exhibit 2019 could try, and since we had the opportunity, we asked the event’s official videographer collector//emitter to take a video of it!
Here are the other demos!
Combining a three-control analog tremolo and a multi-shape digital tap tremolo, the Old Blood Noise Endeavors Whitecap tremolo lets the user find new tremolo textures by combining the two sounds in series or parallel. Quick chops, slow ramps, asynchronous modulations, smooth sines, phase flipped undulations, textural rhythmic drifts – it’s all there in the Whitecap.
