Is This The Ultimate Analog Tape Echo Unit?

In this video you can see T-Rex's Replicator analog tape echo in action. It's been designed with a motor, magnetic head and a tape cartridge to match the sound but surpass features of vintage units.  

There's something about tape. Real analog tape. You just can't escape the sound. In this video by Paul Barker, we get a first-hand view of the T-Rex Effect's Replicator in action.



Listening and watching Replicator in action made us want to find out more about it. And we're glad we stumbled across Paul's video post. According to Paul the Replicator has more high-end when compared to Roland's infamous Space Echo unit.

Here's some details on the T-REX Replicator analog tape delay pedal:

  • 100% analog signal
  • True bypass
  • Two playbackheads for three modes of operation
  • Tap tempo
  • Kill dry switch
  • Expression pedal control of time and feedback
  • Hand-crafted in Denmark

The T-Rex Effects Replicator isn't cheap though. Street price: $899 USD / £649 UK.
