The circa-1980 Electro-Harmonix Attack Decay is a sought after prize
among vintage pedal aficionados. Originally called a Tape Reverse
Simulator, it’s known for producing volume and reverse swells, backward
tape sounds, artificially short staccato notes and bowed instrument
effects. The new Attack Decay reinterprets the classic and keeps its
cool factor, but adds some modern features for convenience and enhanced
It can produce a single volume envelope like the original, or, with Poly
engaged, put separate volume envelopes on each note you play. The
built-in Harmonix fuzz is now a fully controllable distortion with gain,
tone and volume controls. The effects loop allows the musician or sound
designer to place the volume envelope onto whatever signal is present
at the Return jack. Expression pedal/CV input and three user presets
give the user total control over their Attack Decay!
- Volume envelope manipulation with adjustable Attack and Decay times.
- Mono mode: one volume envelope at a time, the envelope resets when you play a new note.
- Poly mode: gives each note you play its own envelope.
- Built-in, fully adjustable, Harmonix fuzz enhances the volume envelope effect and produces bowed instrument sounds.
- Built-in effects loop allows for your own pedals to be inserted onto the volume envelope.
- Expression pedal or CV control over every knob on the Attack Decay.
- Save and recall up to three presets.
