BEYOND THE ORIGINAL HARDWARE

ECHOSON extends the features of the original hardware, adding digital flexibility to the character of analog processing.

STEREO MODE

You can process left and right channels with different settings (Mono), send delays to the opposite channel (Cross) and combine the two channels (Verb).

MULTIPLE HEAD CONTROL

You can switch playback heads on or off individually and decide which ones are fed back to the loop.

ADJUSTABLE TIME

While the original hardware has a fixed delay time of 310 milliseconds, the Echoson allows you to choose a different tempo and even sync it to the song's BPM.

A Unique And Flexible Soundchain

While a normal tape echo's input signal was recorded to tape, this unit differed by recording the signal onto a circular spinning magnetic disc with four record and playback heads positioned around it. This mechanism allowed for a more stable transport than tape devices while providing a distinctive sound full of character. ECHOSON captures every nuance of the original machine's design.
