Plug your guitar (or any effect’s output) into the right hand
input jack. Plug the output into an amp or other effect’s input.
If the leds are not blinking, the pedal is bypassed. When bypassed,
it sits and waits at sequencer step number 1 until you turn it on...
then it starts in time at the present tempo and steps through each
volume setting in series. In this way you can set up a sequence of
different guitar volumes that create a rhythmic pattern which matches
your performance or a series of volumes that sound like a swell or
even echos. For example, to create an echo-like setting, turn on the
Seek-Trem and set the “spd” knob to a reasonable tempo
and turn all of the sequencer knobs fully clockwise except for the
first one. for hard tremolo, leave step 2 off, then set step 3 so
it’s noticably quieter than step 1. Next, leave step 4 off,
and turn step 5 until it’s noticably quieter than step 3. Step
6 stays off, step 7 is set to be quieter than step 5, and step 8 is
also off. Now, when you turn it on, you get a series of tremolo pulses
where each is quieter than the last and you hear a simulated “echo”
as your guitar seems to get further away with each pulse.
Another fun way to use this trem is to set up patterns that accentuate
different parts of an arpeggiated performance. You can predictably
cause the pattern to start exactly where you want it in the performance
by stomping on the switch at the right moment, because the unit starts
in time and always starts at the beginning of the sequence.
For very choppy sounds, turn up only step number 1 and turn all others
off. if the “spd” control doesn’t go fast enough,
switching the pattern switch to “4” will double the rate.
For patterns that play over a 3/4 time signature, you might set the
switch to “6”. The switch lets you limit the total number
of steps to 4,6, or 8. This way you can make faster and/or shorter
For a kind of “volume swell” effect, set the sequencer
controls so that the first one just barely lets any sound through,
and each successive one gets louder until the last one goes full volume.
