Tape Echo


Swing from crunchy echoes to wild swells

EP Tape Echo supplies supple, crunchy echoes, and, with a flick of the wrist, can be pushed into swells of wild self-oscillation that gets more murky, dusty and gritty with each repeat. A true classic, the EP Tape Echo was inspired by the ultimate vintage solid-state tape echo unit. It is available as a mono or stereo plugin.
