UAD Echoplex Sounds and opinions (with mp3's)

My early opinion of this is it's the most analog sounding delay ITB I've ever heard with a caveat. Echoboy has a echoplex type that gets in the direction and does such a great job for a delay trying to do everything and is still my favorite delay made. If you need an Echoplex sound this will give it to you, the more I play with it the more I understand how some of the sounds were made on famous records in the past and I hear those sounds with this. I'm going to do more comparisons but this is the first. The other cool thing about this is the sounds it makes while moving the time...very cool and old sounding stuff that will fill in the spaces on digital recordings very well.

Telecaster into each delay and then into podfarm on some fender setting. I've included the dry guitar through the amp and then the Echoplex, Echoboy, Space Echo and the Tape Delay in PodFarm. They are all on a 1/4 note delay and I played to a drum loop at 120 so I stayed fairly in time.

Universal Audio really upped the ante on the Massive Passive and they really brought it on this one too. While this may not be the most important effect in the aresenal, and whether you need it or not is up to you, they are getting tape right and closer than I've heard it anywhere else and if they are working on the Studer tape effect...the Echoplex is a great sign of things to come.
