The Great Escape Free Dynamic Tremolo Plugin

Musical Entropy has announced the release of The Great Escape, a dynamic tremolo plugin, made in collaboration with Thrilltone and modeling their original hardware all analog pedal.

Instead of being just a standard but still very good sounding tremolo, the two of them feature an envelope detector which changes the speed and the depth of the effect with your playing.

Indeed, tremolo is a great effect, but we must admit that in most cases, it has this mechanical and repetitive behavior, which leads us to use it in a very occasional manner, with pretty smooth intensity… Now, thanks to the envelope detector, tremolo can be a very expressive audio effect.


  • highly versatile dynamic tremolo
  • 3 waveforms available: triangle, sinus, and square
  • speed up or slow down effect speed, with a simple pick’s hit
  • reinforce or reduce effect’s intensity, with your playing dynamics
  • finely set transition time with the dedicated “Release” knob
  • optimized for all instruments, not just for electric guitars, thanks to “Threshold” control knob
  • extra educational features to help users understand what is happening in the plugin

The Great Escape is a preview version of an upcoming commercial plugin. It has been released early to help producers in quarantine. After a given period of time, this preview plugin won’t be available on their website, but will be still usable as a freeware forever.
