The Martinic Colorsound Tremolo AU/VST plugin, tested and authorized by Macaris, precisely recreates the famous Colorsound Tremolo effect pedal used by Green Day, Joe Bonamassa, and Phil Manzanera among other well known guitar players. It’s a virtual effect plugin that aims to recreate the tremolo effects from two different iterations of the popular stomp box.

Includes recreations of both the 1974 and 1996 version of the original pedal. In the 70’s, brothers Larry and Joe Macari of Sola Sound developed the Colorsound Tremolo, modeled after the tremolo of a VOX® AC30 tube amp, using only 4 transistors.

The Martinic Colorsound Tremolo was created using our trademarked ACE modelling technique to bring precise recreations of both the 1974 and 1996 models into modern DAW applications. With the added capabilities of stereo and tempo sync, it’s the new “go to” tremolo effect plugin for achieving that sweet vintage vibe on any audio track!

Martinic Colorsound Tremolo is modeled closely on the original tremolo, offering the same features (and flaws) to perfectly preserve the character of the original effect.
