1.2.1 (Updated 5 years ago)
December 18, 2013
Reaktor 5 or lower
Effect Delay based


This unit can produce a wide veriety of sounds from rich chorus and flanger swirls through modulated delay spacescapes to extreme interactive sci-fi self oscillation effects.

Echo Grease lubes the parts other delays cannot reach!

v1.2 includes:
numerous bug fixes
improved sound quality allowing reduced oversampling for most patches
'extreme' LFO settings
pink noise injection in feedback for more 'real' self-oscillation fun
Long/short settings, reduces the compromise between better chorus/flange and sound quality in long delays
more snapshots
v1.2.1 - oops, I forgot to compress the automation IDs. Now done.

If you find bugs or have any improvement suggestions, please ask on the Reaktor forum or leave a comment... why not leave a comment anyway!

Regards, ColB

This is great, it sounds so lush! Also I found the info popups to be really descriptive and helpful :) Many thanks!

I've updated this to work as an effect in Komplete Kontrol with controller mappings and NKS presets - if you want it I can upload a link

This is easy to use and comes in handy for creating odd-ball sound effects!! Thanks Colin!!

Yes, that's why I uploaded version1.2.1 with the parameters sorted and compressed, and a ready to go .ens with just Echo Grease that you can load directly into Reaper

Hi andreas. I have tested in Reaper, and all works fine for me. I think we should continue this discussion in the Echo Grease 1.2 thread the Reaktor forum. More likely to get useful input from others there.

@colin thanks. i load reaktor and then i import the ens. i delete the junatik and connect the in with with echo -> no sound. i try an other reaktor instance and load the space master -> sounding ! import the echo ism file and replace it with the space master -> no sound ??? what could be wrong. if i reconnect the space master module i have an output again !

Hi andreas. I've uploaded an update with the controller ID's sorted and compressed. That might help. Also, don't load a .ism file straight into reaper. Use a .ens. I've included an appropriate one in the zip.

"extreme interactive sci-fi self oscillation effects" - you sold me! This is really nice and the audio quality is superb.

this is great! I used it on some drums and the "sync lock" is very nice. But i didnt manage to automate things in my host Maschine 1.8. The automation ids seems to be out of range. Great sound and handling.
