Release version 1.0.4
Regular price$39.00

The Echobandit Plug-ins Pedal is modelled after the original Echobandit by F-Pedals, the combination of both Gold and Silver editions withs some extra features.

The Echobandit original pedal is in the list of “must-have mini pedals” made by sound guru Pete Thorn

The pedal version of the Plug-in includes a FILTER knob control that allows a sound range from the Gold to the Silver version of the original pedal and everything in between.

It will cover an incredibly wide range of sounds from an awesome classic slapback to experimental modern long distorted sounds. It can be warm and smooth or aggressive and punchy to cover all your possible soundscapes needs.

The Pedal version features :

  • MIX: sets the balance between the dry input signal and the effect
  • REPEAT: Sets the amount of the echo repetitions
  • TAPE: Add Tape fluttering and saturation
  • TIME: Turn the Knob clockwise to increase and counterclockwise to decrease the speed of the modulation
  • FOOTSWITCH On/Off: Switches the distortion effect In/Out of the signal path

A must have for tape echo fans!

Once no recreation of a decades old vintage tape echo unit from a famous company, but a digital recreation of the F-Pedals' Echobandit Gold and Silver tape echo simulations, which - as far as I have seen meanwhile - are not produced anymore as hardware pedals.

The plugin allows blending between the two different sonic characters, everything else works and is controlled as you would expect it from a tape echo simulation, and the Echobandit sounds very convincing, if you like tape echoes.

Great vintage based echo tones with maybe some modern improvement and without all the hardware problems, original tape echoes were known for. I've noticed positively that feedback/repeats works more stable before starting to self-oscillate than eg. an Echoplex, Copycat or some on these units based plugin-simulations, also all other controls seem to be very subtle adjustable, so that you really can get a lot of different echoes out of this plugin, from very short slap back echoes to large, dense atmospheric walls of repetitions.

The general quality of the echoes is great, everything always sounds very musically, never sterile, digitally or unharmonious. Sonically I would place it somewhere between an Echoplex and an Echorec, depending on the Filter settings.

So, if you need a variety of good tape echo sounds and do not necessarily need to see a vintage looking GUI of some more famous units on your screen, but rather look for a very good tone, this unit does a very good job.
