Soundtoys EchoBoy -
Analog-Modeled Delay Plugin
At Soundtoys, they are more than a little obsessed with delay effects, and EchoBoy is the ultimate realization of that obsession. It wraps decades of echo device history and new forward-thinking features into one versatile effect that will find its way into every corner of your mixes.
Soundtoys dug deep into their collection of vintage gear to find the essence of their favourite echo boxes and channelled it into EchoBoy. You'll find an echo tone that fits your mix easily by choosing one of the 30 built-in styles modelled on vintage gear. Get instant access to a whole range of classic echo box tones, including EchoPlex, Space Echo, Memory Man, DM-2, and the TelRay oil can delay.
EchoBoy's chorus even emulates the CE-1 chorus, considered a holy-grail of guitar chorus pedals. Soundtoys have also modelled other gear to give you a range of sounds that goes beyond standard delay stompboxes. If you want warm, smooth saturation, try the "Studio Tape" style, inspired by an Ampex ATR-102 half-inch two-track machine. And yes, turn it up! EchoBoy sounds great when pushed hard, just like the best analogue gear.
Designed for Musicians
Soundtoys designed EchoBoy with musicians in mind, and they have made it easy to get expressive, musical echo effects quickly. Unlike vintage hardware echoes, getting perfectly timed delays with EchoBoy is simple. Just dial in a musical note value and lock it to your song's tempo with the flip of a switch.
But the real magic happens when you fine-tune the echo's rhythm with the Groove, Feel and Accent controls. Create echoes that rush or drag against the beat. Add some shuffle or swing to match the groove of your song. EchoBoy is the only delay effect that gives you this level of musical groove control.
EchoBoy is easy to use, but it's also incredibly versatile and offers a wealth of advanced features for those who want to explore. Keep it simple with Single Echo mode, Switch to Dual Echo or Ping-Pong modes for powerful stereo echo effects, or dive deep with EchoBoy's powerful Rhythm mode and the Echo Style editor.
If you're bored with conventional delay effects, switch EchoBoy to Rhythm Echo mode for a new experience entirely. In this mode EchoBoy lets you select the rhythmic timing of up to 16 repeats. Rhythm Mode is like having a tape echo with up to 16 read heads (or "taps").
You can add taps to the Rhythm Editor graph, control their timing and sculpt their loudness curve using the Shape control. Rhythm Echo mode is a unique take on delay effects that might just become your new secret weapon in the studio.
