Zvex Sonar

Z.Vex Effects announces production prototypes for three new effects at Winter NAMM 2012, including the Sonar.

The Sonar is a tremolo/machine pulser that will work with higher-gain amps. The Sonar has four knobs and three small switches as well as two stomp switches. Here are the different modes:

 

1] Clean tremolo with tap tempo. One small switch allows changing time division between 1, 2 and 4, so the tap rate can be matched one-to-one, doubled, or quadrupled. There’s a volume, a speed knob if you prefer to set speed that way, and duty knob which controls the duty cycle (“on” time versus “off” time, so you can get down to very short chopped trem sounds.)

 

2] Machine tremolo with tap tempo, selected with the clean/machine switch. All of the above features, but the Machine pedal sound is now pulsing out of the Sonar. Like the original Machine, the Sonar’s internal machine decays and creates a hazy rotating sound as the trem pulses on.

 

3] Another switch and knob. This switch has three positions... the features above were described with this switch in the middle. When it’s switched to the right (“up”), there’s a knob labeled “delta” that you set (how quickly the tremolo speeds up once it’s turned on.) The trem will start at the rate you chose with the speed knob or tap switch, and speed up at your chosen “delta” rate until it’s screaming fast. In the same manner, the trem speed can slow down to a dead crawl at any chosen rate by switching the selector to the “down” position (to the left). You can recover the original speed by turning off and on the pedal, or by tapping the tap tempo switch which brings it back to whatever speed you like. This speed up/slow down feature works with both the clean and machine trem sounds described above.
