The Replicator D’Luxe is a sum up from all the knowledge, we have built up over the years, making Tape delays. Not only for guitars but also excellent for the Synth creativity.
It is a 2 head machine. The drive mechanism has been updated with a noiseless belt drive. A tape lock/release mechanism is added, to make the pinch wheel and tape last longer and electronics has been tuned to perfection.
There once was a time when a "bucket brigade" was a handful of firemen and digital processing was only used by computers the size of a house. Echo effects were largely done by using magnetic tape run by a motor – it was such a cool sounding concept, but the size, weight and ease of use was always a challenge for the players.
The Replicator is T-Rex Engineering´s take on the ultimate tape echo unit, complete with a motor, magenetic heads and a tape cartridge. The goal was to make a tape echo unit that could nail the sound quality of the old echo units, but surpass them in features. Size, ease of use and super-fast tape replacing were obvious areas of improvement, but we also put in tap tempo and two playback heads.
The tape cartridge (available seperately) can be replaced in seconds and the high headroom of the circuit will allow you to use this pedal for processing line signals as well (keyboards, P.A. aux sends, preamps, etc.).
The difference between a super precise, accurate digital echo and the Replicator is that there is a certain amount of unpredictability in the sound of tape. It has its own life, almost. And that personality translates into a very natural sounding echo that we think feels more like an instrument than a sound effect.
One Record head and two playback heads. Short Head for slap back delay. Long head for longer modern delays, or combine both heads for a semi Delay-Room experience
Delay time Short head =108 – 520mS. Delay time long head = 215 – 1000 mS
Tap tempo for Long Head and half the time for the short head
True Bypass switching with a gold plated relay
New motor suspension with belt drive, for reduced noise operation
New Tape deck lock-mechanics to protect pinch roller and tape for longer life span
All analog signal path from input to output
Power supply with exchangeable blades 90-240 Volt, and an extra tape cartridge included
No customer reviews for the moment.
