    Patch comments:
    Opto Driven Tremolo with deep reverb that sounds like Johnny Marr's guitar on "How Soon Is Now", performed by The Smiths.
    I created this patch on the B3n, but it sounds good with an electric guitar also. The tremolo is set for the BPM of HSIN, but it can be changed for any BPM in the range of ~80-120. Outside of that, it sounds a little odd.

    Effect: "LP-MONO" (Rhythm and Looper), active - "yes"
    "Start time" = Manual
    "Undo" = On
    "Stop" = Stop
    "Volume" = 80

    Effect: "OptComp" (Dynamics), active - "yes"
    "Drive" = 5
    "Lo" = 100
    "Hi" = 74
    "Volume" = 47

    Effect: "Tremolo" (Modulation), active - "yes"
    "Wave" = TRI
    "Depth" = 100
    "Rate" = Eighth
    "Volume" = 62

    Effect: "Plate" (Reverb), active - "yes"
    "PreD" = 115
    "Decay" = 55
    "Mix" = 40
    "Tail" = Off

    Effect: "Rhythm" (Rhythm and Looper), active - "yes"
    "Pattern" = Metro
    "Unknown1" = 0
    "Unknown2" = 0
    "Volume" = 6

    Patch Volume: 100
    DSP Load: 48%

    Oops. I left the Looper and the Rhythm portions in there. I was using them to play in a recorded loop while tuning the effects and getting the tempo right. Disable or remove them as you like.
