Strymon Generalissimo Euro Tape Echo Hands-On Demo

At the 2016 NAMM Show, Strymon previewed the Generalissimo – a voltage-controller Eurorack Four Head dTape Echo machine, with extensive control over tape characteristics and machine health.


  • Processor-intense dTape algorithms deliver nuanced emulations of tape echo systems
  • Four-head tape echo emulation with delay time adjustable independent of tape speed
  • Individual tape adjustment and tone shaping knobs for: Speed, Dry Signal Level, Playback Level, Feedback, Record Level, Low Cut, Tape Age, Crinkle, Wow & Flutter, Spring Reverb Level
  • Sound on Sound mode with instant tape splice and bulk erase. A built-in tape-style looper with a three-head tape echo front end!
  • Individual level controls for each of the four playback heads
  • Individual feedback taps for switching each of the four playback heads in or out of the feedback circuit

The Strymon Generalissimo is coming in Spring 2016, priced at US $599.

  1. How about a Eurorack tape delay with a real tape in it. Mod a walkman, splice an old cassette together and we’re off to the races. Fun to dream…
