Echo Fix has been known for over 10 years for their repair of vintage tape echoes. Now the company has decided to put their know-how into a completely new developed product. The result is EF-X2, a new hardware tape echo effect inspired by vintage units but with modern technology. Per example, they use here a procedure, which keeps the tapes longer as before.
Interesting is here: you can use the EF-X2 not only as classic analog tape echo but also as pre-amp or digital DSP reverb. It can be used with guitars, in the studio or with modular Synthesizers, as for example Time and Feedback can be controlled with CV. A very interesting new tape echo processor, looking forward to hearing more sound demos of it.
A classic effect, built for modern users – the EF-X2 couples the sounds you know and love, with features and reliability unimaginable in the past. In designing the EF-X2, the team here at Echo Fix began with the knowledge and insight gained from our work as the world’s foremost experts in spare parts, servicing and repairing vintage tape echo units. Put simply, we know how tape echos should sound and operate.
- Three core functions – tape echo, reverb, and preamp.
- Independent inputs (and level controls) for Instrument-level and Line-level applications, plus balanced input and output at rear.
- Three echo playback heads, and a Sound On Sound Head giving 11 Head combination Settings in total.
- Adjust the echo’s Time and Feedback with Control Voltages (CV 0-5 volts) and compatible Expression Pedals.
- Bass and Treble control of the echo signal.
- Motor ON/Switch for tape slow down effect – or to conserve tape when only using the EF-X2’s reverb or preamp.
- State of the art DSP Reverb with independent controls.
- Mute the reverb or echo signal with a dual foot switch pedal.
- Comes with a worldwide-compatible, 100 – 240v power supply (no step-down or other transformers required).
- Built tough to last, by someone who’s repaired and upgraded more tape echo units than you can possibly imagine.
- 3 Years Warranty with peace of mind that this is made by a company that has been operating for over 10 years specialising in tape echo repair and spare parts.
