Hey everyone, I am interested in hearing your thoughts on analog vs digital tremolo effects, especially on electric guitar. To be clear, I am not talking about what Fender (erroneously) calls "tremolo arms" on guitar, also known as whammy bars, which is actually a vibrato effect. I am talking about a real tremolo effect that modifies the dynamics of a signal, not the frequency. Some audio effects, like delay and reverb, most of us can agree are best left in the digital realm for most applications. Other effects, like compression and distortion, are often more desirable as analog effects, and the digital platforms hopelessly try to imitate and model the analog gear. You might very well disagree with this, but that's not the point. The point is that some classic effects from the analog age are better achieved in the digital realm than others. I am a big believer in the "use the type of gear (whether digital or analog) that captures the sound you want and don't worry about if the technology behind the gear is fashionable" philosophy. Nonetheless, I want to hear ya'll's thoughts on this. Is there an advantage to using analog tremolo effect pedals/amps/outboard gear, or is it easier, cheaper, and even better to just use digital plugins? Should I bother shopping for tremolo pedals at Guitar Centre? Or should I just plug in to POD Farm or the Guitar Rig tremolo effect? Pax Caritas et lol, -Clark PS I know I haven't been around RO much lately (I've been reading a little but not posting), because I haven't been doing much recording... But good news- for the first time in two years I am recording a client and getting back into the swing of this business! So hopefully I will be around the forum more. I miss ya'll!
