Warm, crazy, and hazy delays from the most popular tape echo ever made.

The EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces gives you an exacting emulation of the legendary tape echo device used by Jimmy Page, Brian May, Chick Corea, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, and Andy Summers. Vintage Echoplexes are legendary for their idiosyncrasies — including distortion, wow and flutter, self-oscillation, squelch effects, and other random analog goodness. The EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in emulates all of this, and more.

Like the hardware, the EP-34 plug-in’s record head can be slid in real time for smeary weirdness, trippy dub excursions, and more. The musical input clipping of the original hardware’s hallowed preamp section is also captured via a Record Volume control, giving the EP-34 some subtle to not-so-subtle tonal coloring and distortion. With the addition of modern workflow enhancements like Tempo Sync, the EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in is must-have tool for any mixer.

Now You Can:

Craft hazy delays and vibey slapback with the most legendary tape delay ever made

Tweak the EP-34 Tape Echo’s controls for real-time effects and tone sculpting

Harness a vintage Echoplex’s unique input clipping distortion on everything from drums to vocals and guitars

Create with plug-in-only features like Tempo Sync, Wet/Solo, Pan, and Tape Tension

Best sounding tape delay I’ve used

Genuinely the best sounding tape delay I’ve ever used. Sits in the mix just perfectly with no tweaking, would use it over the real thing just for ease of use

Best Delay I own.

Delays need to be simple and to the point if you ask me. PTs natives absolutely stink compared to this one. The EP-34 has such a great usable sound.

Super grain

Dès que je l'ai entendu, je l'ai prise directe : la couleur est vraiment top (j'ne sais pas encore bien m'en servir), mais vous ne risquez pas de le regretter ... je l'ai insérée sur une guitare : et la lumière fut! :-)

Awesome

This plugin is perfect, and really , sounds like tape. That sound you get using anything that has tape as its delivery source. As always Universal Audio nails it again.

EP-34 Tape Echo for Slapback Delay on Vocals

There is a nice Slapback preset on the EP-34 Tape Echo, when adjusted to taste, can help Vocals pop just ever so subtly.

It does one type of delay incredibly well

If you want warm, crunchy, tape-y delays, there isn't anything out there that will beat this.

The best psychedelic delay ever made adding character and space to any instrument

If you need a delay that breaks through or that you can control in ways you can't with any other delays, this is your delay. It is amazing all the sounds you can get out of it and if you automate the sliders you can get some sounds never ever heard before, spacey
