I have a real one, this one sounds just like it without the maintenance factor. My buddy is an EP geek/nerd/snob and thinks this thing sounds f-n great. Me too.
Couldn't be more pleased - it responds and sounds like the real deal, with all it's features and quirks. I've been using it to liven up my guitar tracks. The stereo spread is just incredible, but it also sounds fantastic and punchy as a mono instance. It's really impossible to go into all the detail of this sound.. but it really brings the source to life with depth and movement.
I can't wait to try this on vocals!

I totally love this plug-in. Nice, dirty and gritty. This plug- has the feel and sound that i love.
Way worth it.
What a stunning device this really is... Its warmth and versatility are like no other and uncomparable with any other delay device..! Combine more than one and the result is beyond this word..!!!!! Perfectly done once again UAD...!
Well for years I was looking for an authentic, noticable but not too flashy reverb, mainly for the use on vocal tracks. I've tested alot of plugins and I ended up using some Lexicon stuff, which is really good too.
Then some lucky day, I've bought my first UAD card and tried this echo plug-in.
Since I own it, I use it in nearly every track to open up and widening my vocal-tracks.
From time to time I use it on acoustic guitars too...it's very nice sounding for both. It doesn't change the natural sound of your material but it prescinds the nicest nuances out of it.
I can absolutely recommend this plug-in for nice reverb and delay programs!
I love messing with speed control on they delay. Automating it is such a cool effect.
I was lookin' for something to tuck under vocals, drums, and guitars without being heavy just enough to add to the groove. I'm glad I purchased thiis, now I'm experimenting with delay more. Another great weapon added to my arsonal.
Great sounding delay, and tons of fun! Very inspiring to work with!
Put off buying this one for a long time, but finally caved.
This thing is all character, from the drive and saturation to the echoes themselves. It all sounds so real!
Of course you can use this effect to do crazy stuff, but you don't have to at all. It's great just bubbling along in a mix on a much more tame setting. Use this if you don't want to sound like software.
great effect for electric guitar, for example.
Sounds very authentic !
Lovely little plug-in. I'm a dub producer and this hits the spot! Imparts a warmth and subtle character to the sound. Will use again & again.
When my demo ran out I figured I'd just go back to my other delay plugs... Nope! I really missed this one immediately. The EP-34 just always sounds right to me - warm and beautiful and real... great compliment to the wilder and brighter sounding RE-201.
Excellent software, like i expected.
With the wet button, when you print your audio and move it ahead according to the delay time , you've got a great tape sound without delay at no more expense.
The only drawback is the maximum delay time of 700ms. That's a 1/2 at 67bpm.
I thought software could beat the hardware on this.
Too bad, but not enough to ruin the pleasure and true character it adds to your music.
Yup, I used the hardware units back in the day. And they all went south sooner or later, the plug always works and is unique in the UAD-2 lineup. Very different from the Roland space echo that I also have. It has just the right amount of crud in the signal to give it that character sound. With runaway feedback to die for! This is a true tape delay in every sense of the word! Can't live without it. Neither will you.
this ep-34 tape echo is one of the finest plug ins I have ever used since it is a multi use item with excellent echo ,delay and added effects characteristics beyond any expectations .any sounds can be enhanced both dramatically or with great finesse .
eliminates the multi plug in useage conserving dsp , pgm and time
the ease of operating scope is another example of the uad perfection .
thank you once again for your professionalism
Vintage. Warm. Control. Historic. Mine!
I love delay. At times (especially for vocals) I will use it like a separate backing instrument. I'm shocked at how versatile, complimentary and modern this effect can be although there is plenty of old school "cheese" if one wants it.
simply love it. Put it on a separate bus and let it float off, degrading beautifully...
I am thrilled with this awesome plugin, Although I already had the Roland Space Echo plug, I am old enough to remember when the EP was the must have effect. UAD has perfectly modeled that plug and makes it available to us, It is amazing on a vocal track and a must have for guitars. Thank you UAD for your amazing work.
This is a formidable machine
However, you must know the parametrer to get the best
I use it all the time
Good job from the team universal audio
I was expecting a wow when I "plugged" it in but it was more like a "okay, nice" Maybe I have to fiddle about with it a bit more. A stereo feature would be a blessing. PLEASE DO A FULL STEREO VERSION with independant ms!! It's such a pain to route these things. ;)
