FX - Retroplex

 

 

The Retroplex delay unit is specially modeled after the old Tape Echo units of the 60's and 70's like the Echoplex™, with some modern enhancements. It's a lot of fun and unpredictable!

 

MINI-SLIDER

Controls the mix of the dry signal and the processed (Wet) signal.  The percentage indicated is the amount of the signal that is Wet.  Range:  0 to 100%

 

• PAGE ONE CONTROLS

VARI-SPEED

Smoothly controls the tape speed/delay time of the echoes. Range: 1% to 10%

FEEDBACK

Feeds the delay signal back to the input for echo repeats.  Range: 0 to 100%

TAPE MODE

Drop-down menu offering different preset types of echo and delay ranges.

Choices:  ECHO 1, ECHO 2, DELAY 1, DELAY 2

[FLUTTER] AMOUNT

Simulates the tape flutter motor instability effect of vintage tape echo machines that make the echoes vary in pitch from one repeat to the next. Range:  0 to 100%

[FLUTTER] SPEEDControls how fast the motor instability affects the tape flutter pitch modulation of the echoes. Range:  0 to 100%

YEAR

Drop-down menu that contains a list of “years” from 1960-2000.  Choosing a year simulates the fidelity of the chosen era.  Earlier years have less fidelity than later years.

WIDTH

Controls the width of the echo stereo imaging.  Range:  0(mono) to 100%(full stereo)

 

• PAGE TWO CONTROLS

DRIVE 

Controls the amount of overdrive distortion in the delayed signal.   Range: 0 to 1

SMASH

Adjusts the bit resolution of the delayed audio for additional distortion.  Range:  32bit to 4bit

FREEZE

Locks the echo buffer for a continuous playback loop of what is in the echo buffer. Useful for simulating sound on sound style tape looping techniques.

NOTE: The Freeze buffer is cleared when Omnisphere is closed. To save the Freeze buffer, you need to render Omnisphere to an audio file.

GAIN

Adjusts the overall output volume. Range: 0 to 100
