Tape Reverse Sounds In A Stompbox

Electro-Harmonix releases the Attack Decay Tape Reverse Simulator      05/03/19

Electro-Harmonix has posted a new demo video of one of their NAMM releases, the Attack Decay Tape Reverse Simulator. It's a dynamic attack and decay envelope originally available in the early 80s for a couple of years. EHX have added modern features such as control over the built-in fuzz and 3 footswitchable presets. Here's more details from the company...
 
The circa-1980 Electro-Harmonix Attack Decay is a sought after prize among vintage pedal aficionados. Originally called a Tape Reverse Simulator, it’s known for producing volume and reverse swells, backward tape sounds, artificially short staccato notes and bowed instrument effects. The new Attack Decay reinterprets the classic and keeps its cool factor, but adds some modern features for convenience and enhanced functionality.

It can produce a single volume envelope like the original, or, with Poly engaged, put separate volume envelopes on each note you play. The built-in Harmonix fuzz is now a fully controllable distortion with gain, tone and volume controls. The effects loop allows the musician or sound designer to place the volume envelope onto whatever signal is present at the Return jack. Expression pedal/CV input and three user presets give the user total control over their Attack Decay!
