M13 Pitch Glide - Unintentional tremelo?

Hi folks,

I'm using an M13 as my main effects unit on my pedal board, but I have a question for you folks that may have more experience.

I'm using the "Pitch Glide" effect to lower my guitar a half step. The song I'm currently using it on is "Black Velvet".

When hitting some of the chords in the chorus, I'm hearing this tremelo effect, has anyone else run into this?

Listening back to some rough mixes of rehersal, it seems to blend ok with the B3 stuff the keyboards are doing, but I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this and if it mattered?

Thanks!

do you tremolo as in volume fluctuation or as in pitch wavering? (seems like a simple question, but there's some confusion of tremolo vs vibrato).

It's glitching because you're playing chords into it. It's supposed to be used for single notes only.

Zing! Now I know. Sounds pretty decent on my solos.

Hrm. I REALLY wanted to avoid having a standard and dropped guitar on stage. :dunno

Is there anything else in the M13 I could use then?

No, not a pitch, it'd definately a true tremolo, volume fluctuation.

The C7 I play seems to do it the worst.
