GuDa Audio Eko
Eko is a stereo delay/echo plugin focusing on constantly evolving echo timbres. It features three modes including stereo, cross stereo and ping. Stereo width allows you to control the left right timing offset and width of ping pong from center to hard panned sides.
To make this movement possible, Eko has a number of other inspiring features. Starting with tape flutter that emulates the classic unstable tape echo for a moving timbre. With the mild saturation, you can add some grid, warmth to your sound.
Then, you can introduce a chorus effect to bring width to your sounds. At high settings, it can take the echo into reverb fields. Additionally, you can tweak the character with the color knob aka EQ. Thus, you can modify the lows or highs for the classic filtered echo sounds. There is also a handy ducking functionality that consists of a side-chained compressor.
Further, you can adjust the GUI size (25% to 200%) and modify the colors of it. The developer does not currently offer a sound demo of the plugin. Nonetheless, an interesting, easy-to-use delay plugin with a lot of functionality. And at a very low price
GuDa Audio Eko is available now for $19USD/19€ and runs as a VST/VST3 on macOS (M1/Intel) and Windows.
