REQ: Wavesfactory Echo Cat
One of the best tape echos perfectly replicated as an audio plugin.
Retaining the original sound and offering modern features like ducking, M/S and tempo sync.
Echo Cat is all what we ever wanted a tape echo to be.
Based on a classic
Invented in 1958 by Charlie Watkins*, the Copicat* delay was an instant hit. Featured in countless albums from the 60s and 70s and used by great bands like The Shadows and Pink Floyd. Primarily designed for guitar, it's now a sought after piece of equipment in studios around the world.
Echo Cat brings back the sound and behaviour of the original unit with authentic tape simulation and three playback heads. With added extra features that any modern delay plugin should have. These include M/S processing, tempo sync delay times, filters on the feedback path, varispeed, modulation and ducking.
Why you'll love Echo Cat
Drive the input to get that crushed tape sound. Push the sustain up to 100% to get that typical self-oscillation. Vintage sound with modern control.
We've meticulously modelled the sound of the original unit by analysing a high number of signals through Copicat*.
Echo Cat features our high-end tape model that responds, behaves and sounds like tape. That's its core feature.
Tempo sync, ducking the full stereo or only the mid channel, pro presets, filters, stereo widener, M/S...
