ECHOES - ANALOG ECHO BOX
Nomad Factory is proud to introduce ECHOES, a new Analog Echo Box plug-in designed to give you the warmth and richness of classic vintage delay effects.
ECHOES faithfully models the greatest delay effects of all time, PLX-1 based on* Echoplex® 1, PLX-3 based on* Echoplex 3, OILCAN based on* Tel-Ray® Oilcan Delay, EHX-DM based on* Electro Harmonix® Deluxe Memory Man, and ADM-2 based on* Boss® DM-2 Analog Delay.
Following the philosophy behind Nomad Factory’s hit Magnetic plug-in, ECHOES not only sounds amazing, but it is designed to be very easy to use. Unlike many other delay plug-ins that have dozens of unnecessary knobs and confusing parameters, ECHOES has captured the essence of the original effects by keeping it simple. With the turn of a few knobs, the plug-in delivers musical results and instant analog delay satisfaction!
- A brief history of Analog Delay…
The world’s first delay effects were achieved using tape loops improvised on reel-to-reel systems in the 1950’s. The dawn of the analog delay came in the 1960’s with the Maestro® Echoplex. Many guitarists embraced the technology as a way to enhance their sound including Robert Fripp, John Martyn and Jimi Hendrix.
Often incorporating vacuum tube-based electronics, vintage analog delay units are highly sought after by today’s musicians who desire the unique timbres achievable with this technology. Solid-state delay units using transistors became available in the 1970s and were briefly a mainstream alternative to tape echo.
Though solid-state analog delays are less flexible than digital delays and generally have shorter delay times, several classic models such as the discontinued Boss® DM-2 are still regarded for their "warmer", more natural echo quality and progressively decaying delays.
