At the heart of the new Diamond Tremolo is a 100% analog signal path utilizing an optoisolator like vintage tube amplifiers of the 60’s. The analog signal path is combined with a microprocessor controller to provide a host of cool features including:
– tap tempo and footswitchable double speed mode
– user selectable waveforms (sharkfin, sinewave, square wave and ‘chop’)
– timing accents (3/4, 6/8, 2/4 and 4/4)
– rhythmic trem mode
– ‘Chaotic’ mode – random speeds with any waveform!
– TapView (TM) feature allows the player to visually see the tempo and tap speed while tapping a new setting.
It’s important to note that at no point is your instrument signal converted to digital! Everything you hear is completely analog. Vintage sounds, modern flexibility.
The Memory Lane Junior is a digital evolution of our original Memory Lane concept, the world’s first analog delay with tap tempo.
By utilizing the same variable sample rate concept used in analog bucket brigade modulation, and adding custom analog anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters and companding, we’ve captured the ethereal essence of the Memory Lane… in a much smaller footprint, with over twice the delay time, an extended frequency response, and standard 9V powering.
The the MLJr digital sampling engine’s sole function is to copy, delay and reproduce the delay path signal with no mathematical manipulation at all – and unlike standard digital designs, there are no digital anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters. All signal paths around the sampling engine (direct path, feedback path and everything before and after the digital sampler) are analog paths carefully designed to provide a unique sonic signature that is unmistakably the Memory Lane Jr.View full product details
