Patina Echo Machine
Primetime Style Tape Echo with Freeze Function
NEW VERSION 1.1: Now includes tempo sync, ping pong and some other subtle improvements and changes.
Delay panning is now controlled with the width controlling, rather than separate panning as per previous.
PATINA ECHO MACHINE:
This was my attempt at a mashup between the Soundtoys PrimalTap and Echoboy plugins (which I own and absolutely love).
I took Michael Hetricks tape style echo and added a freeze/hold function and sample rate multipliers like you would find in the Prime Time (and thus Primal Tap).
I also added some filtering, distortion, eq etc (special thanks to Boscomac). in the feedback path, and also delay time modulation to try and emulate old tape echoes and BBD delays (like the echoboy).
This device actually holds up pretty well to my own BBD delay pedals, and I've tried to emulate the pedals in some of my presets.
The Freeze function and sample rate multipliers are the heart of this ensemble IMO, and I have spent hours creating evolving loops with this function.
The controls are all relatively self explanatory, and I've tried to write a description for everything.
TIP: View A just shows the basic controls. View B shows everything.
TO DO: There is no tempo sync currently. As I'm just a 'hack it together' guy at the moment this is a bit beyond my understanding with Reaktor at this time. Any suggestions on how to implement tempo sync, but keep the sample rate control, would be most appreciated!
Hope you guys enjoy!
