This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Wampler Faux Tape Echo.
These two digital delays emulate the sounds of a tape echo. Both provide a very nice modulation and the sound can be fine-tuned quite well via the tone control.
0:10 Echosystem: new tape/ Faux Tape Echo: stock setting
0:59 bright setting
2:00 dark setting
2:54 with modulation (Echossystem:old tape)
