The powerhouse Electro Harmonix Pico Attack Decay Tape Reverse Simulator Pedal is here to seduce your ears with its mesmerizing swells and mind-blowing reverse tape effects. Prepare to have your mind blown, because this pedal pushes the envelope like no other.
Let's talk about the legendary Attack Decay Tape Reverse Simulator that inspired this beauty. Renowned for its ability to create stunning volume and reverse swells, as well as mind-bending backward tape sounds, artificially short staccato notes, and even ethereal bowed instrument effects, this pedal has become a staple in the arsenal of many musicians. Just imagine the possibilities with this level of sonic wizardry at your feet.
The Pico Attack Decay allows you to dial in volume swells and decays, both in Mono mode—one volume envelope for all notes you play—and the revolutionary Poly mode where each note to has its own volume envelope creating cascading swell effects and leads with agile attack smoothing. With intuitive functionality and simple controls, the Pico Attack Decay opens up creative avenues for any player interested in pushing the (volume) envelope.
The Pico Attack Decay is both powerful and simple with four knobs and a mode button that let you create a wide variety of effects. The ATTACK knob sets the swell or fade-in speed of the volume envelope while the DECAY knob sets the fade-out speed of the volume envelope. Set the ATTACK higher for languid volume swells. Set the DECAY higher for artificially staccato notes for synth-like punches. SENS adjusts the threshold for triggering the envelope. VOL controls the overall output volume. A hidden BLEND control allows you to blend wet and dry signals for even more flexibility in tone.
