High-qualtiy tape delay emulator with two playback heads, adjustable feedback, and up to 3 seconds of delay.
While the quality of tape delay emulators has come a long way, nothing beats the sound of a genuine magnetic tape delay. The REPLICATOR is a pure analog tape delay, handmade in Denmark. It features two playback heads (one tap-tempo controllable, one independently bypassable), and uses a durable C30 1/8" chrome tape cassette for a long life and very easy replacement.
Delay level: Adjusts the level of the two playback heads
Feedback: Adjusts the amount of feedback on both delays, reaching self-oscillation
Delay Time: Adjusts the delay time from 8 ms to 3 seconda; tempo can be tapped (does not apply to Head 2)
Master Boost: Go from unity gain to +20dB boost for overall volume boosts
Chorus: Built-in tape modulation; varies the tape speed in very small amounts, resulting in pitch modulation of the delays
Saturation: Drives the Record head into saturation (led peak indication)
On/Off switches for: Tap, Chorus, Heads & Master On/Off (true hardwire bypass)
Kill Dry switch (for parallel loop)
Two Expression Pedal inputs
Includes 24V DC external power supply

Comments about T-Rex Engineering Replicator Analog Tape Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:
I own this. First you need to set your expectations. If you are looking for a classic pristine digital delay where you set and forget that gets digital fidelity this is not it. If you however want a very dynamic and responsive delay that has all the quirks and beautiful foibles of tape this is a fantastic choice. You do have to coax it to get the tape running sometimes buy pulling the tape heads control down but once running it seems much less temperamental and works. The tape itself will add little fluctuations that give it a unique sound. The controls are very interactive and it keeps your tone warm and responds to picking dynamics. The chorus effect gives you wobbly chorus: it actually changes the tape speed. I have a high quality analogue echo box but it crushes my dynamics, high end and clarity. This doesn't. Also the repeats are much more interesting and sound good on my effects loop or in front of my amp. The saturation can add a boost to your signal and make the repeats distort with picking dynamics. I am a knob turning kind of person who likes old school amps guitars etc and doesn't like infinite tweaking with layers of submenus; so so look before you leap. It does make motor and tape noise when running so if you are miking you might hear it. The best feature is how well the knobs interact to get differences in repeats, decay, saturation and oscillation. You can find new sounds easily The fast repeat does a rich ADT effect when setup correctly.
