Nomad Factory Releases Echoes Plug-In For Mac & PC
Nomad Factory has released Echoes, a new virtual analog plug-in for Mac and PC designed to give you the warmth and richness of classic vintage delay effects.
Echoes claims to faithfully model some of the greatest delay effects of all time, PLX-1 based on Echoplex 1, PLX-3 based on Echoplex 3, OILCAN based on Tel-Ray Oilcan Delay, EHX-DM based on Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, and ADM-2 based on Boss DM-2 Analog Delay.
Often incorporating vacuum tube-based electronics, vintage analog delay units are sought after by today’s musicians who desire the unique timbres achievable with this technology. Solid-state delay units using transistors became available in the 1970s and were briefly a mainstream alternative to tape echo. Though solid-state analog delays are less flexible than digital delays and generally have shorter delay times, several classic models such as the discontinued Boss DM-2 are still regarded for their warmer, more natural echo quality and progressively decaying delays.
