Arturia Tape-201 Analog Echo Effect Plug-In.

Experience Vintage Tape Delay Sound with Modern Reliability and Versatility

The Arturia Delay TAPE-201 offers a software-based emulation of classic hardware tape delays, providing the same rich, spacious sound with more reliability and versatility. It's easy to use and fun to tweak, allowing you to create that dreamy, reverberating delay that you've been searching for.

This incredible plugin pays homage to the tape delays that revolutionized the music industry and gave birth to new sounds. From the pioneering EchoSonic by Ray Butts, Mike Battle's Echoplex, to Ikutaro Kakehashi's innovative Echo Chamber series, tape delays became the go-to tool for guitarists and organ players in both live and studio settings. The dreamy, golden tone that tape delays created quickly captured the attention of producers, engineers, and recording studios, becoming a signature sound in many productions.

In 1974, Kakehashi's updated design hit the market, using standard 1/4" tape in a continuous loose loop with no reels, making it a favorite for musicians and producers alike. It didn't just sound great; it was also versatile, with multiple delay patterns for different rhythmic feels, EQ control for tonal adjustment, an integrated spring reverb, and, most famously, adjustable tape speed that allowed for haunting pitch changes in the delay.

Thanks to the advanced TAE® modelling technology used in its design, Arturia Delay TAPE-201 perfectly emulates this groundbreaking delay as a plug-in. Recreating all the magic, quirks, and legendary tone of the iconic silver, black, and green-fronted echo unit, it's the holy grail of tape delays that has been loved by countless musicians in all genres and styles.

From the pitch-warping power of alternative and indie legends like Radiohead, Sonic Youth, and Bon Iver, to the guitar tone of The Shadows and Randy Rhoads, and the spatial width and thick, saturated tone of electronic pioneers Vangelis, Boards Of Canada, Leftfield, and Jean-Michel Jarre, the Arturia Delay TAPE-201 has been embraced by many famous spacey tape delay users, including dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry and synth hero Brian Eno, making its ghostly, analog decay part of their signature sounds.
