Delay TAPE-201 - General Questions

Do you have questions about Delay TAPE-201?
You will likely find an answer here:


An audio delay is an audio processor which records an input signal, and plays it back after a certain amount of time, creating an echo effect.
Unlike digital delays, tape delays are using an analog tape to record and repeat the input signal.
The use of tapes gives a very pleasing sonic character, bringing further tape coloration to the signal upon each regeneration.


Input volume

Adjusts the volume of the input signal fed into the tape and reverb.

Delay Type

Determines how the input signal is processed by the echo chamber. It can either be Stereo, Ping-Pong or Mid/Side.

Mode Selector

Switches between the different playback heads and reverb combinations.

Repeat Rate

Controls the speed of the echo tape mechanism.
Each channel speed can be adjusted independently or linked and synced to the DAW tempo.


Rate Offset induces a timing offset between the two channels, while Stereo Width accentuates/alleviates the stereo width of the signal sides.


Generally called feedback, it controls the echoes regeneration amount, going from a single repeat to self oscillation on the highest values.

Echo & Reverb Amount

Controls the volume of the processed Delay and Reverb outputs.

Bass & Treble

Attenuates or accentuates the high (treble) and low (bass) frequencies of the delay output.
(No effect on the reverb signal)

Dry / Wet

Sets the ratio of processed (wet) to unprocessed (dry) sound output from the plug-in.

Input Equalizer

Lets you shape the input signal before being processed in the echo chamber and spring reverb tank, with the help of a non-resonant high-pass and low-pass filter, plus a mid-range parametric equalizer.

Motor Controls

Motor Inertia sets the torque power of the motor when the repeat rate changes, while Flutter controls the speed stability.
Noise adds some random noise modeled from the original instrument.


The Low Frequency Oscillator lets you modulate the Delay Tape-201 parameters with a various panel of waveforms, a syncable rate and an assignable destination.
