We have modelled three different tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording/playback.
We’ve also modelled the ballistic response of the delay rate (repeat rate) which can create eerie pitch shifts (due to the Doppler effect), one of the classic tape echo-based sound effects
Just like the original unit, with the Mode selector you can choose 12 different combinations of echo playback heads and reverb (4 Echo only, 7 Echo+Reverb, 1 Reverb only).
We’ve modelled three different tape types. The original RT-1L, a more modern replacement, and an older worn out tape. Each tape will affect the sound in a subtle but different way, especially at higher feedback (Intensity) settings.
WOW/Flutter will also change according to the selected tape, creating different amount of pitch and volume nonlinearities.
Changing the speed of the repetitions (Repeat Rate) will also affect the tape frequency response.
An amazing tape delay emulation that demands to be tried – and, at this crazy price, almost certainly bought– by any producer or guitarist.
