This amazing plugin pays tribute to the tape delays that changed the way music sounded forever. From the early EchoSonic pioneered by Ray Butts, Mike Battle’s Echoplex, to Ikutaro Kakehashi’s masterful Echo Chamber series, tape delays gave guitarists and organ players a new, exciting tool to use on stage and in the studio. Hearing this fluttering golden tone, it wasn’t long before studios, recording engineers, and producers wanted to make it part of their signature sounds.
In 1974, the music world was taken by storm, or rather, by space. An updated version of Kakehashi’s design, this time using standard 1/4" tape in a continuous, loose loop, and no reels, became the go-to favorite for musicians and producers. Finally, floaty, magic echo in a self-contained, reliable unit. It didn’t just sound great, it was versatile too. It had multiple delay patterns to create different rhythmic feels, EQ control to hone the delay’s tone, an integrated spring reverb, and - most famously of all - adjustable tape speed, letting it create otherworldly, haunting pitch changes in the delay.
Through the magic of our advanced TAE® modeling technology, we are able to perfectly emulate this groundbreaking delay as a plug-in. All of this magic, all of these quirks, and all of this legendary tone are recreated in Arturia Delay TAPE-201.
The holy grail of tape delays, the iconic silver, black, and green-fronted echo unit was loved by countless musicians from all genres and styles. Alternative and indie legends like Radiohead, Sonic Youth, and Bon Iver loved its pitch-warping power. It fleshed out the guitar tone of everyone from The Shadows to Randy Rhoads. Electronic pioneers Vangelis, Boards Of Canada, Left field, and Jean-Michel Jarre adored its spatial width and thick, saturated tone. Dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry and synth hero Brian Eno made its ghostly, analog decay part of their signature sounds. A list of famous spacey tape delay users would be impossibly long, but it would be a “who’s who” of influential music legends.
Now it’s your turn. If you want to add that magic, analog tape delay sound to your own music, complete with its quirky pitch control and saturated tone, Delay TAPE-201 is the perfect plugin.
