Universal Audio have announced the release of the
EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in for the UAD-2. Here's what they have to say about it...
Universal Audio's EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in gives guitar players and mix
engineers the rich, warm tape delay effects of vintage Echoplex*
units, now on the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform for Mac and PC. One
need only listen to classic recordings from Jimmy Page, Brian May,
Chick Corea, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson and Andy Summers to hear
the Echoplex sound in action.
Unlike other Echoplex emulations, the EP-34 is the first plug-in that
targets specific behaviors of both the EP-3 and EP-4 Echoplexes. The
DSP experts at UA sweated every last detail, ensuring that the EP-34
plug-in is verifiably the most accurate model for those who want the
distinct, chaotic Echoplex sound, "warts and all."
"The rich tape echo sounds and tactile controls of the original EP-3
and EP-4 hardware units have been cherished by musicians and engineers
alike for decades," enthused Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio.
"We're elated to be the first to provide the dead-on sonic qualities
and controls from both of these classic units as a software
emulation." EP-34 Tape
Echo Powered Plug-In features include:
Highly desirable sound of original EP-3 and EP-4 Echoplex tape delay
units, now available as a UAD-2 plug-in for Mac or PC
Tape echo effects virtually indistinguishable from those used on
countless classic recordings of the past six decades
Unique movable record head design creates warm, rich sound unlike
any other delay unit
The EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in is available as part of the new UAD
Software v5.7.0 release. In addition to the EP-34 Tape Echo, v5.7.0
includes the now officially licensed dbx® 160 Compressor/Limiter
plug-in, as well as additional performance enhancements for all UAD-2
users on the Windows platform.
