I have owned a Fulltone TTE for a long time now and use it on almost every mix I do.

They are great little boxes that are built quite well have a great vibe.

Also great for tracking.

To use it with line level you need a reamp.

Yes,

The TTE has instrument level input, so you have to use a reamp box when sending it line level.

During mixing the signal will flow like this.

Aux send (from Pro Tools or console) - Reamp - TTE - DI - console channel - AD - PT.

I usually print the delay back into the multi track session.

Me too. Luckily in the Metric Halo console I can select from instrument, -10 or +4 for sends and returns so I don't have to muck around with DIs and reamps and such.

great thanks, but technically speaking, what would be wrong about just having it go right back into my ADC? I guess I can send it into a preamp? OR could I send it to a DI box and straight into ADC?

The level will be VERY low.

TTE is instrument level output.

Its like plugging an electric guitar straight into your ADC.

Won't work.

I have a Neve DI with gain on it that I use sometimes if I dont want to go through the console.

You will need some amplification to get the signal to a useable level going from the TTE into an ADC.

I love my TTE on vocal. And of course it works perfectly well on many other things too.

Do any of the other tape delays self oscillate? That is a cool effect. I have a space echo. Cleaned up a bit, put it some new tape and its good to go. I might demagnetize the heads in a bit.

My Multivox echo can self oscillate like a mofo. I have made recordings of just playing with the knobs and buttons on it once I get it started. Sounds like something from a science fiction movie.

TTE will self oscillate in high speed mode beautifully.......

I love my Multivox MX-201! I have owned Roland RE-101's, RE-150's and RE-201's over the years, but I always go back to my Multivox. My only advice to anybody seriously considering a tape echo for the first time, is be prepared to work on it. If you are the type that pays somebody to service your equipment, you might be better off with a pedal delay likea Moog or Korg's RE-20.

I can highly recommend the strymon el capistan, it sounds wonderful in mixes, very much like a real analog delay in the way it responds, I am always re-amping things through it and my other guitar pedals.
