Crow Tape Echo
perfectly recreates the warm vintage echo sound of old tape delay
Crow Tape Echo authentically retains the desired
tape echo sound, with
the distortion, flutter, and warmth that tape delays are famous for.
With high feedback rate it can also get into a tape-oscillation mode
that produces very interesting results.
What makes tape
echoes so special:
electronics, echo was created by using tape-loop echo
units. There are various reasons why tape-based systems sound so
distinctive. One main reason is the restricted frequency response of a
loop of tape that's been dragged over a set of tape heads thousands of
times. The tube circuitry of the original models also had a limited
bandwidth and added a significant amount of harmonic distortion. In many
cases the tape delay unit would also apply a tiny amount of vibrato to
the repeats, because of unbalanced tape heads. This, combined with
the tape's tendency to saturate, meant that when feedback was used,
successive echoes became less bright and more distorted, creating a
sense of the sound receding into the distance.
Crow Tape Echo
includes all the features and controls that original tape delays have:
-Up to three tape heads can be used simultaneously.
-The rate, the level and the intensity (feedback) of the
echoes can be determined.
-The echoes color can be shaped with the bass and treble
-The machine age can be set: new machine will produce clear
echo sound that can be great for vocals, while older machines will have
warmer character and increased wow and flutter.
- Like with some of the original units, spring reverb can be
added for a smoother delay sound.
