The Micro Stereo Pulsar, from Electro-Harmonix, takes all the features that made the original a hit and condenses them into a single compact aluminum chassis that can be adequately housed in just about any pedalboard.
In terms of controls, the pedal features a waveshape switch that selects between triangle wave mode and square wave mode. A corresponding Shape knob alters the shape of the waveform as it modulates the tremolo. When in triangle mode, turning the shape knob from counterclockwise to center changes the wave from a small from a rising sawtooth to a triangle. Conversely, rotating the knob from the center to completely clockwise moves the wave from a triangle to a descending sawtooth.
When in square wave mode, moving the Shape knob from counterclockwise to the center changes it from a pulse-width wave to a full square-width wave, while moving it from center to clockwise changes it from square-width to a large pulse-width wave.
Additionally, the Stereo Pulsar features a depth knob for adjusting the overall amount of tremolo, as well as a Rate knob, which alters the overall modulation amount.
