PIPELINE TAP TREMOLO
Highly Customizable Tremolo Pedal with Vintage and Modern sounds, Tap Tempo, Volume Boost and TonePrint Technology.
The new PIPELINE TAP TREMOLO is TC Electronic’s highly anticipated TonePrint-enabled tremolo pedal.
With Pipeline at your feet, you’ll have access to the warm, organic sounding sinus curves of the sixties, the jagged edge rotor blade clippings reminiscent of helicopter landings, and everything in between.
Whether you are looking for a classic surf sound or the syrupy wobble of the Motown era, the Vintage mode has got you covered, while the Square mode yields a more aggressive and edgy modern sound.
Of course, you can always use the TonePrint mode to custom tailor PIPELINE TAP TREMOLO and make your own waves.
With up to 6 dbs of volume boost on tap, Pipeline lets you eliminate the perceived volume drop inherent in tremolo effects, and make weak sounding tremolo passages a thing of the past.
After selecting from 7 different modes of rhythmic subdivision, use the footswitch to tap the tempo and you’re good to go.
Surf ‘N’ Turf
Need a tremolo that will fit with your classic surf-rock gig and your modern hard rock outfit without losing a step? Pipeline will serve you vintage Dick Dale-esque surf sounds of the sixties by day and the meaty cuts of an industrial slaughterhouse by night, while taking up minimal space on your pedal board. Just use the mini toggle switch to go between Vintage mode, Square mode and TonePrint. The speed and depth knobs lets you dial in the right intensity to match your sound.
Using the subdivision knob, you can subdivide the frequency of the tremolo wave into anything from simple quarter notes, eighth note triplets, sixteenth notes, and into the trippy territory of a quarter note followed by eighth note triplets. Not to mention the Custom mode which gives you the ability to program up to 4 bars with different tempo subdivisions.
Let Yourself Be Heard!
Pipeline’s volume control gives you up to 6 decibels of onboard boost to compensate for any perceived drop in volume.
After all, tremolo is in essence “cutting holes” in your signal leaving your ears with less even though the volume stays the same.
With PIPELINE TAP TREMOLO pedal, this is not an issue. Just plug in and adjust the boost accordingly.
Tap Tempo and Go!
As the name implies, PIPELINE TAP TREMOLO lets you tap the tempo of the tremolo effect. The footswitch doubles as a tap tempo control, allowing you to set the frequency of the tremolo waves while saving precious space on your pedal board. By holding the switch down for 2 seconds, the LED turns green and you can tap the tempo you want.
Using TonePrint Editor you can customize your individual tremolo sound to suit your specific needs. This means controlling the EQ, manipulating the height and length of the tremolo frequency which means that you can adjust how long the signal is cut and how long the signal stays on, individually. Want to incorporate an element of dubstep into your playing? Use TonePrint Editor to dial in the sequence of seizure-inducing tremolo stutters you want.
