Tremolo of what? Live audio? An audio clip? A Simpler sample? A synth patch?

try autopan with phase set @ 0 , applicable to all.
For simpler LFO of the volume would do the same.

Vibrato is a lot more difficult with audio samples than tremolo. I think I saw a plugin once, called Wobbler or something.
mbp 2.66, osx 10.6.8, 8GB ram.

Mostly for Operator, though a combination of audio effects would be great to play live guitar through, with tremolo in sync with the BPM.

Has anyone heard the new Thom Yorke album? Thought it was a bit cold but liked the feeble decaying synths on 'Harrowdown Hill'. I've been trying to recreate those with audio effects, anyone tried anything similar?

Thanks.

easy, in the chanel put an autopan with the rate than fits your song tempo or whatever, next you can put an utility an make it mono, panorama left or right, an you have a vibrato

doesnt the LFO modulate the pitch in Operator? Or if you wanted to use it on the guitar you could just throw the recorded audio in simpler and send the LFO->Pitch. For real time using Lives Plugs, id say play around with a grain delay or chorus -> Autopan. VSTs, dunno
