Universal Audio EP-34 Tape Echo by Wesma
This delay plugin is very nice for a lot of things when mixing and you can really get creative and get some very cool sounds out of this plug. I use it a lot on vocals both for very short and for longer delays. It really blends great with just about anything and the sound is truly analog with nice saturation and subtle wow and flutter sounds. I love the sound of the plug going almost into self oscillation – sounds just like a real tape echo to me.
My favorite use for this plug is on electric and acoustic guitar. Great for a short slapback effect and just amazing for long beautiful delays. Gives a very nice sense of space. The echo tone section is a great feature to quickly mold the sound to fit the arrangement. You also have pan which could come in handy. This is one of those plug-ins that you just love to do real time automations with. I really get a great feel when I use it in conjunction with a hardware controller.
Of all of the UAD plug-ins, this is one of my favorites. The only downside for me with this plugin is that it eats up a lot of DSP power from the card.
