The ShapeShifter Stereo Tremolo Pedal has a true analog signal path but incorporates a digital processor for tempo control and adjustable wave and shape options. We feel this combination provides the widest pallette of tremolo effects ever offered in a pedal while retaining all of the tonal benefits that high quality analog circuitry can bring. True stereo inputs and outputs allow the ShapeShifter to be used in a wide variety of live and studio applications. While primarily intended for electric guitar, the ShapeShifter can produce excellent results when used with keyboards, acoustic guitar and many other musical instruments.
In addition to a great variety of tone options, the Seymour Duncan shapeShifter Stereo Tremolo Pedal has been outfitted with a versatile tap tempo system that combines a footswitch and a special Rate/Ratio toggle switch. You will also find a Phase control that allows you to set the timing between the pulsing of the stereo channels and a lighted, flashing speed knob which indicates tempo.
Depth: Sets the blend between your dry signal and the wet tremolo signal. This control allows you to set the mix from fully dry to fully wet, varying the effect from subtle shimmers to rhythmic pulses to complete freak out sounds
Shape: Adjusts the rise and fall time of the tremolo resulting in subtle changes where the volume increases and decreases in the tremolo signal. it is possible to continuously blend between three distinct shapes.
Wave: This variable control allows you to continuosly blend between three different types of tremolo, from a smooth sine wave found in vintage amps, to a choppier triangle wave, to an abrupt on/off pulsing square wave.
Speed: There are two ways to conrol the rate of the tremolo effect - The first is by directly rotating the speed control. The second is by using the Tap Tempo footswitch to tap in a tempo. When using the tap footswitch, the Rate/Ratio switch can be set in either position.
Rate/Ratio Toggle Switch: This mini-toggle switch selects between two modes of operation for the Speed control - When in "Rate" mode, the control continuosly varies the tempo from .5 pulses-per-second to over 15 pulses-per-second. When tapping in this mode, the tempo in entered directly in time with your tapping. When in "Ratio" mode, by rotating the speed control, you are able to select between four multiplication factors: 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 This mode is for use only when tapping in a tempo using the Tap Footswitch and is used to multiply the rate off your tapping to a faster tempo.
Channel Phase: Continuously adjusts the phase between left and right output channels from 0 degrees to 180 degrees. This will only be noticeable when using stereo output.

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
I decided to get this tremolo for its simple control layout, and because I thought it might sound very close to the classic tremolo on a vintage amp, (and it truly deliver those sounds!), but it surprised me with the ability of creating more good musical chopping sounds, as the Boss slicer. I have an MXR (M 159) stereo tremolo, similar size and stereo ins, but it is not as sweet as the Shape Shifter. When playing, it renders musical sounds and mixes well with all my gain and modulation pedals. I feed it with 18 volts to get more headroom and it works! It makes me smile as a child, so I would say it is highly recommendable. Thanks.
