    Hey, so I was listening to some modern lovers earlier and stumbled across this bowie cover - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9uYBdcgR84&NR=1&feature=fvwp - listen to the first ten seconds or so.

    It looks like he's got a tremolo/stutter thing going on, it's not a delay repeat but seems like a tremolo being turned on and off sporadically.

    So I was wondering if anyone know is a tremolo pedal with an unlatch/momentary feature?

    I see there's stuff like the utter stutter which is kind of that same thing I think and that has a momentary switch. I know TC Electronic do their Shaker pedal which has an unlatched mode but that's vibrato.

    Actually Ryan is coming out with new versions of almost all of his pedals.

    RRR V2 (epic)
    A new Tremolessence (sorry no tap tempo)
    A new Cosmichorus
    A new drive "The Elements"

    Go to ILF @ ilovefuzz.com to read all the threads in the Dr. Scientist hosted forum.

    Cheers

    That new Tremolessence looks pretty cool, any demo videos knocking about yet or is it still too new?

    +1 on the Diamond trem! It is a fantastic pedal and the stutter effect is great.

    You could also look into a repeat percussion pedal (like the EQD Hummingbird) if you want that effect w/out manual control.

    Diamond Trem for the win! Manual mode is awesome.

    Looks like the Diamond is just the job - the manual mode is what I was talking about, the unlatched on/off, and it has a lot of other modes including a rhythmic mode that looks interesting!
