  1. Great demo! This looks like the DSP tape echo with the sound and flexibility I’ve been looking for. My Boss RE-20 sounds OK but this is the business!

    I wish I could get this as a plug-in. But whatever … at least I no longer feel like I need a vintage Space Echo.

  2. I am really torn. I like their El Capistan a great deal (except for the weird “lump / volume drop” in the wet/dry mix) and already have a Boss DD-500 (love the flexibility and variety but not the Bank / Program selection process). And then there’s the forthcoming T-Rex Echo Rec redux. “First World problems”…

    1. I know this is an oversimplification but $399 is currently about 350 euros. Add in VAT @20% and you have about 420 euros. Seems like a pretty fair figure to me @ 444.
