RE-Tape Echo

V1.2 : scroll down to see changelog

RE-Tape Echo is an attempt to recreate my own Roland RE-150 Space Echo.

Featuring :
– original controls on the first page : 6 echo modes, repeat rate, intensity, echo volume
– two play heads with a fixed delay ratio of 1 to 3
– bypass
– two individual gain controls

Imperfections :
– a repeat rate-dependent filter as a tape simulation : low repeat rate = less highs, high repeat rate = better highs, high-pass filter at 130Hz, modelled on my RE-150
– motor speed fluctuations : wow, flutter, dirt
– input bleed to echo
– bad erasing head

Fun stuff :
– 10 presets state saving system
– tap tempo and fine tempo control (1 and 0.1bpm steps)
– 4 routing modes :
1 + 2 to echo to LR
1 to echo to L, 2 to R
2 to echo to R, 1 to L
1+2 to echo to R, 1+2 to L
– o-knob enabled

——————-
v1.2 changes :
-presets now are actually saved across reboots and reloads… don’t laugh.
-thresholding has been modified to allow an easier and consistent reach of extreme pot values

v1.1 changes :
-move to o-knob library v2 : it’s much easier to dial parameters…

if you want to transfer your saved presets, open v1 and v1.1 on your computer. Enter the [pd presets] subpatch of v1. The big message boxes at the bottom are your presets. Copy the content of each message box to the corresponding message box in v1.1
