Faithful recreation of a vintage tube magnetic echo
Audiority Echoes T7E is a faithful recreation of a vintage tube magnetic echo made in Italy in the early ‘60s. This echo effect unit is based on a magnetic spinning drum with both record and playback heads arranged around a recording wire wound around the drum circumference. This solution provides better stability over the usual tape transport with reduced wow and flutter.
Since the main “core” of this effect is based on the above mechanism, Audiority modelled both the mechanics and the electronics. Echoes T7E also provides 3 different playback modes allowing you to set different spinning speed or ever synchronize it to your host tempo extending the original delay length from ~310ms up to ~1100ms.

"Killer in every way……sounds fantastic. Magic sauce!!" - Audiority Echoes T7E User
“It sounds great. It definitely has that vibe and wonkyness that you would want from some analog emulation and we had endless fun making noises just tweaking the dials whilst recording. You can use this as a delay effect or, as we found, a sound design tool that doesn’t sound ‘digital’. Just stick to 100% wet and ride the speed dial for instant pitch-shifty joy.” - AudioPluginGuy
