This wasn't the effect being used in the Tom Petty performance. The 
guitar signal was being sampled and played back in reverse, often 
sounding simultaneously with the direct signal. There certainly are 
some similarities in the resulting sounds (e.g. guitar notes swelling 
out of silence) but this is a result of time-reversal of the original 
envelope and not the creation of a new one through volume change.
