Recently, I found the following request in my mailbox:
“I think, I actually would need a Binson Echorec, but they are in fact beyond price. I love the flutter echo mash, that the Echorec is able to create. In the meantime, I think, that an analog delay is able to produce every sound, I long for. Digital delays with analog emulation do not sound that nice to me. But at the same time, I don’t want to get into dept. Could you tell me, if the Ibanez Echo Shifter might be a suitable pedal for me? Especially in contrast to the Ibanez analog delay, AD9, mini or even the EHX Memory Toy? I have already tried to many sappy pedals. Right now, I do (still!) use the Hardwire DL8. But in my opinion, it is too cold and inorganic.” Continue reading “Ask the Dude: Is there a pedal sounding like the Binson Echorec?”
Today I’m going to test a very nice pedal: The Crazy Tube Circuits Echotopia. The play of words with echo (resonance) and utopia (wishful thinking/illusion) describes the pedal quite well. The guys from Crazy Tube Circuits categorize the sound of the Echotopia as a retro tape echo for soundscapes. Continue reading “Review: Crazy Tube Circuits – Echotopia”

This is a comparison of the Maxon AD-900 with the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo. The comparison of an analog delay with a tape echo might be a bit extraordinary – but these two classics can definitvely compete with each other.
