Warm, Highly Adjustable, Multi-Head Tape Delay Captured From the Best of the Space Echo Line
Created by Roland in 1973, the Space Echo has been adding wonderful tape character and chaos to performances and recordings since its inception. Pink Floyd and David Bowie, countless reggae and dub albums, to more recent bands like Portishead and Radiohead, all offer examples of the warm, highly adjustable tape delays that the Space Echo affords. UA spent over a year developing our RE-201 Space Echo — considered the best of the Space Echo line — to capture the physical behavior of this complex device, “warts and all.” The resulting RE-201 Space Echo plug-in is truly a unique instrument unto itself.
UA’s RE-201 Space Echo faithfully retains all the controls and features of the original, such as the Mode Selector for various head combinations, Repeat Rate for fine timing control, and Intensity which sets repeat count and allows the unit to achieve self-oscillation. The all-important Echo/Normal “Dub” switch is retained for muting, as well as the simple tone controls. Last but certainly not least, the atmospheric shimmer of the Space Echo’s spring reverb is faithfully captured, putting this fantastic plug-in on par with the original unit as a tool of infinite creativity.
Our emulation also adds substantial “digital only” features like host Tempo Sync, Output Volume, Echo and Reverb Pan. Finally, a Tape Select is present allowing the user to select between three distinct grades of tape loop quality, new, used and old—plus the clever “Splice” switch allowing the user to trigger the chaos-inducing tape splice at will.
