EP-34 Tape Echo
EP-34 Tape Echo
Saves on hardware
I'd been searching eBay for an affordable echoplex in good condition for a while. I don't own a hardware echoplex, but with this emulation I don't feel like I have to. This is a must have for guitars, but it works great on vocals and other sources as well routed to an aux. I like how UA captured the self-oscillation when the settings are abused. This feels very authentic to a sound that I am very familiar with.
It's a great plugin, like a real hardware. I compared with some plugins and analog gear and this plugin was best.
Very nice tape delay
This thing is very tweakable and great for guitar and vocals. I've done some dub-style snare hits with it and that also sounds amazing. Re-amping with this thing is also great.
A class all by itself...
It is in a class all by itself...
Amazing the amount of diverse character and different echo effects the EP-34 Tape Echo plugin
has on instruments, vocals and any other recordings.
You can spend hours fine tuning all the different knobs until you get the right sound !
"Its that deep" in different sounds that you can get from this weird but amazing piece of equipment, whether its
the real hardware(which I don't own but hear from others who do, that is sounds the same) or the UAD plug emulation.
Perfect for Dub Mixing
I have two Space Echo guitar fx pedals that I used for dub mixing. When I invested in the UAD products I knew I had to try the EP-34. What a great plugin for getting an authentic dub delay. It's got a lot of character and is just plain fun to control.
I use the original one and the plug... When i listen both (the plug and the hardware) i have to say that is difficult to see difference!
This is very much a one trick pony, but it does that trick very well. I don't have all the functionality as something like Timeless, but sometimes creating a dozen modules to get a good tape delay is a bit unrealistic when clients are bearing down on you.
The Echo Plugin
The best echo plugin that I ever heard.
This plug in gave new air to my older recordings, true and accurate, will recommend it!
The EP-34 is a good replica of a tape-based echo. I have never used the original to this IRL. But I grow up with Roland Space echoes and I think those have to be an important part of any home studio. I think this one is a good complement to UA's replica of Rolands space echo. They differ alot in character and that is a nice thing.
I couldn't believe the other day that I listened to the mix and something just wasn't right
with the lead guitar. EP 34 saved me big time, I could boost the lead just right and and a subtle delay time made a lead flow just right. It's not just delay it actually enhance and glue the sonically.
I simply can't explain with words how realistic this model is.
It behaves exactly like a tape-based delay, which impressively includes the self-oscillation phenomena. The device will begin to "feed-back" on it's own looped signal, which can indeed get pretty insane and will eventually wig-out, but it is also possible to control this process and create immensely beautiful beds of delay, generated from the source sound itself. Whether it's dub or just subtle modulation this plug is permanently present in all of my mix templates. I love it.
Classic plugin you have to have in your arsenal
Title says it all. I use the Echoplex all the time. Killer on vox. (Not as good as the UA's "Cooper Time Cube" but still kick ass). I like to buss the Echoplex to the vox and it acts almost like a pad. It creates amazing ambience. So many cool and creative things you can do with the Echoplex. As I always say, you can't go wrong with Any UA plugs. UA plugins are the first plugins that made me feel justified in spending 200+ on non tangible gear. UAD's are truly a investment.
Echo fantasy +++
Réglages un peu sensibles au premier abord et les boutons sont un poil petit mais on s'y fait très vite pour obtenir très rapidement un résultat de tape echo très convainquant...Avec de bons réglages, fonctionne sur toutes les sources audio...avec un peu de fantaisie par rapport aux delays habituels !
Ep-34 coolest echo ever
This delay takes me back to the days of old with the same magic quality you hear on so many albums we grew up loving. Going to be fun to play with the oscillating echos.
My number one Tape delay
Love this tape delay. Warm and classic sound. Makes guitar solos shine. UA did a great job.
Great sounding delay
Delays are tricky. To my ears, most just sound average. They impart nothing, no matter how much you tweak the settings or fiddle with eq or ducking effects.
The EP-34 sounds good. It's got plenty of functionality, but right from when you put it in a track, it sounds good. That's all I need, stuff that does what it should and sounds good doing it. Nice one, UA.
99% real 110% More reliable!!!!
This thing is dead up like my real one... but sits better in a mix because its a plug in, no mechanical noise, and it works every time!!! SO thats awesome... can be used to add depth and space to about anything, plus all the funky tricks!!! for sure my " Most Fun" Plug in!!!!!
As useful as the real thing
I demoed this EP-34 on a project, and immediately bought it. I've used the hardware version for years, both live and in the studio, and the EP-34 Tape Echo Plug-In sounds and responds like the modeled hardware, along with the quirks and artifacts. Having the ability to overload the input via the recording level gives me the ability to be expressive with the plug in. And...no banging on it to get the tape moving!
I wish it had a stereo version since I often use two of these plug ins set slightly differently to get stereo effects.
Ive been stacking these now and the effect is pretty fantastic. I love using varying amounts of each of the stacks to give really subtle yet big space. Right on again, guys.
