Palmetto 3 is an extremely versatile tremolo. It features controls that allow to obtain a high level of effect personalization: gradually, it can range from a triangular wave up to a square one, allowing a mixture of both.
In addition to the standard controls (frequency and depth), it is possible to alter the symmetry and the spacing of the LFO (low frequency oscillator).
Palmetto 3 allows varying almost all the wave parameters that finally modulate the amplitude of the instrument’s signal.
Spacing: Separates or joins the effect’s cycles.
Speed: Adjusts the effect’s frequency or, in other words, the number of cycles per second.
Depth: Controls the effect’s level.
Hardness: changes the shape of the cycles, from a soft triangular one, to a pulsating square one, passing through the mix of both.
Symmetry: Controls the cycles symmetry. Within each cycle, it varies the relation between the duration of the high pulse and the duration of the low one.
