Universal Audio in Scotts Valley, Calif., now offers the EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in for the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform for Mac and PC, which is available for purchase via UA’s Online Store for $199. The EP-34 features a unique, movable record head, and is designed to replicate the rich, warm tape delay effects of vintage Echoplex units.
The EP-34 is said to be the first plug-in that targets specific behaviors of both the EP-3 and EP-4 Echoplex units. DSP experts at UA worked to ensure that the EP-34 plug-in accurately models the distinct, chaotic Echoplex sound, “warts and all.”
The EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in is available as part of the new UAD software Version 5.7 release. In addition to the EP-34 Tape Echo, V. 5.7 includes the now officially licensed dbx 160 Compressor/Limiter plug-in, as well as additional performance enhancements for all UAD-2 users on the Windows platform.
