I am returning the EHX Super Pulsar I just got as I am very disappointed with it. This is my review, some might find helpful, especially those who consider themselves old school, analog, "what you see is what you get" type of player. The Super Pulsar is a strikingly beautiful pedal with a lot of bling - you'll love it when you unbox it, even with slight cosmetic defects. See pics below. I don't care about cosmetics, though at the steep price it should come pristine. It isn't. Here's what's up: 1. Noise; 2. Audible pop/click when you turn it on/off; 3. No LFO retrigerring 4. No Customer Support Allow me to elaborate. I'll start with Customer Support. When the pedal came out I asked on EHX's Facebook if the pedal has LFO retrigerring and they said "email tech support". So I did and never heard from them. Ok, so I'll buy it, I can always return it. A tremolo pedal in my world has a very simple function. You might think I'm not tech savy or I don't care about sophisticated FX and you couldn't be further from the truth. The noise - I hope I don't have to explain that. Or the click when you turn it on or off. These issues are subtle but I don't have to settle with them if the TC Electronic Nova Mod I have is quieter, the switch is silent and has all the features except for the rhythm patterns which I was excited about only to find they're not very useful and get old quickly when you listen to them. That's only my personal taste - they might be great for someone else. This pedal fails on a very basic level. The biggest bummer is the lack of LFO retriggering, though I know that I'm in the minority that cares about it. EHX aren't the only ones - most tremolo pedals don't have it and seems like most manufacturers don't care about it. I didn't care to read the 10 page thread on the pedal because a lot of gear heads get all scientific with their wording, also I am a working musician, I don't need to integrate a guitar pedal with my laptop via midi, external click, I don't play in stereo because carrying 2 amps is for rock stars and they have roadies. I don't. I want things to work. I frequently buy pedals on my way to a gig and if they don't do what they're supposed to - they go back. Programmable and more sophisticated pedals obviously need time, but I don't think a tremolo pedal falls into that category, including this one. LFO retriggering means that when you turn the pedal on it starts the cycle from the beginning which in plain English means you can turn the pedal off on the chorus of a song and turn it back on on beat 1 of the verse and you'll be perfectly in time (given that you've tapped the tempo right in first place) Tremolo pedals without LFO retrigerring will start a cycle randomly wherever they happen to be, not necessarily syncing up with what you're playing. Most people are ok with that, I was too, until I got a pedal that has LFO retriggering. I have found that ballads in 4/4 benefit from tremolo use and I use triplet 8th note subdivision to tap the tempo. It sounds great regardless if it's synced or not, but it feels infinitely better when it's synced. Try it. The patterns, modes/presets - I don't care about those. The function to determine speed and depth with guitar dynamics has no musical application for me, but I found the knobs too close together to adjust. I couldn't create my own rhythm pattern. The manual said something about importing presets via blah blah, they lost me at "import" haha I'm not an engineer, I play guitar in a band. Give me syncing: Fast songs - tremolo with a deeper, sharper wave for stutter effect. Slow songs - mellow tremolo. That's it. Sounds simple, but I guess not. Sticking with the TC Nova Mod. The moral of the story: 1. If you're not sure about the Super Pulsar, either try before you buy, or make sure you buy from a place that will take it back if you don't like it.
