Its the latest product of a new high-end Overloud plugin line, called Gems, dedicated to mixing and mastering.

ECHOSON, the revolutionary simulation of a legendary Drum Delay, originally manufactured by the Italian company Binson. ECHOSON goes beyond the mere simulation of the original unit, by adding features not available in the hardware. One of the main additions is the option to double the processor panel to have it working on a stereo pair of audio channels with cross-feedbacks between the channels.

Beyond the original hardware...
ECHOSON is the Overloud recreation of a legendary Italian magnetic drum delay unit. Its unique tone defined the Pink Floyd sound in the '70s. ECHOSON extends the features of the original hardware and joins the flexibility of the digital world to the character of the analog processing.
STEREO MODE :
You can process left and right with different settings (Mono), send delays to the opposite channel (Cross) and combine the two channels (Verb)
You can switch on/off the playback heads individually and decide which ones are fed back to the magnetic drum
While the original hardware has a fixed delay time of 310mSec, the Echoson allows you to choose a different tempo and even sync it to the song's BPM.
