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 Analog Echo Plug-In

This has to be the best analog delay plug-in I have used so far in my life. There might be some obscure plug-ins that are just as good out there and I could be wrong, but the EP-34 is worth every penny in my view.

Instant tone and vibe

I’m happy that I finally bought the EP-34 for my plug-in locker. I tried it on some vocals and dobro. It takes some time to figure it out, but once you do, it can be a very precise tool. Great job!

Subtlety to Insanity

This thing goes from subtle little slaps to self oscillating real quick. I’ve probably used this on every song I’ve made so far. I love putting a guitar through it and turning the dry off and then manipulating it and capturing all the crazy stuff it does to use for little accents or samples throughout the song. I also love using two separate buses and throwing one on each and panning with different settings for a super cool wide sound.

A Delay with a special vibe

Since i bought this delay, it has been my go to delay. It has a "analog and vintage" vibe, but it is surprising versatile nevertheless.

My favourite delay

I really love the sound and vibe of this delay, it might not have all the tricks of a modern delay but what it does do it does perfectly. Every guitarist should get this!

Great tape echo/delay plugin

The EP-34 Tape Echo is just the best tape echo/delay plugin I have heard. I have them all, because I am a fan of delay plugins. It's the BEST of them all. Period.

Great sound, looking forward to exploring further

Out the gate it sounds nice, have not pushed it too hard yet, but I imagine when I eventually do I will review it more favorably. Basically been using presets, which sound nice but not as deep as I had expected compared to other UAD plugins.
