Echo Pad Effect Processor for iOS

Holderness Media has introduced Echo Pad – a realtime echo effect processor for iOS. Echo Pad features a delay + sound on sound looper, controlled by a multi-touch XY interface.

According to the developer, Echo Pad was ‘born out of love for tape echoes, sound on sound loopers and noisy, dirty analog delay pedals. Echo Pad excels at hands on warping delay tones and controlled feedback, and is not afraid to get loud.’

Here’s a demo video for Echo Pad:


  • Realtime FX processor designed for live performance and sound design
  • Multi-touch XY control of delay parameters for expressive control
  • Sound on sound looper for creating layered loops on the fly
  • Universal app
  • Supports iPhone 5 screen
  • Supports Background audio
  • Works with headphones as well as most iOS and professional USB audio interfaces including:
    • Apogee Jam
    • Apogee Mic
    • iRig
    • iRig iMic
    • Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (*requires external power thru USB hub)
    • Apogee ONE (*requires external power thru USB hub)
    • Apogee GIO (*requires external power thru USB hub)
    • many more


  • Audio Copy and Paste for sharing loops and recordings made within Echo Pad, as well as playback and process pasted audio from other apps using Echo Pad in realtime. (General Pasteboard)
  • supports NEW “Export to AudioShare” functionality.
  • Loops and recordings created with Echo Pad can be exported directly to the AudioShare app for easy audio file management.
  • recordings & loops are exported to iTunes File Sharing for access on your Mac/PC

Sound design and Control:

  • 4 delay types – Tape/analog echo, 8-bit, Rising, Reverse
  • LFO assignable to delay time, input filter, volume. Great for subtle to extreme modulated echoes.
  • Control delay time, feedback, and echo high pass and low pass filters with XY control. (dual touch, more gestures coming in updates.)
  • Toggle slider control panels for access to full parameters.
  • Save and recall effect settings.
  • BPM sync for rhythmic delays.
  • Tap tempo to set delay time and global BPM.
  • Sound on sound looper for quickly capturing and layering sound.

Echo Pad is $2.99 in the App Store.
