Gives you the sound and features of a tape delay machine in a
repair-free, small pedal format. This is the most accurate tape delay
modellng available today. Leave your tape delay at home and don't miss
it one bit.
Time: Sets the lenght of delay time.
Mix: Controls the blend between dry and delayed signal. At 7 o'clock 0% wet, at 5 o'clock 100% wet. El Capistan leaves the dry signal 100% analog.
Tape Age: Sets the age of virtual tape. More worn-out tape has warmer sound. At 7 o'clock the sound is crisp and clear, at 5 o'clock its worn-out and warm.
Repeats: Sets the number of repeats. 7 o'clock one repeat, 5 o'clock infinite repeats.
Wow & Flutter: Simulates a badly configured tape delay machine towards 5 o'clock. Affects the pitch and modulation of the repeats.
Tape Head: 3-position switch to change between different tape head and machine configurations in conjunction with the Mode switch.
Mode: 3-position switch that works in conjunction with Tape Head switch and controls the features of tape heads.
Tap Tempo switch
- Hidden controls (activated when Tap and Bypass are pressed simultaneously when the pedal is on).
Spring Reverb (under Time controls): Adds spring reverb to the delays. Create massive delay and reverb-laden soundscapes.
+/-3db Boost/Cut (under Mix control): Boosts or cuts the signal, from -3db to +3db.
Low End Contour (under Tape Age control): Affects the amount of low end. At 7 o'clock full bottom end, at 5 o'clock a thinner sound reminiscent of a drum delay.
Tape Bias (under Repeats control): Controls the amount of headroom in the delays. At 7 o'clock the clearest delays with most headroom, at 5 o'clock slightly distorted and compressed delays.
Tape Crinkle (under Wow & Flutter control): Adds the effects of a mangled tape to your sound.
- Power requirements: 2,1mm 9 VDC centre negative, 250 mA. Power supply provided with the pedal.
- True Bypass or buffered (user selectable)
