Two words — nasty and dirty. That’s Echobox D7 in a nutshell.
Sound-wise, it’s a model of an echo mode found in a particular Japanese stomp-box, which AFAIK is a model of one of the two most revered analog tape echos in music history.
- Delay Time – adjusts, well, delay time (overall range is 30 – 2600 ms)
- Repeat – adjusts amount of feedback (values above 5 result in (self-)oscillation)
- Delay Level – sets the volume of delays that gets mixed with dry signal (not wet/dry ratio!)
- Range – sets the delay time range in which the Delay Time knob operates (30-160, 120-650, 480-2600 ms)
- Mute – “true” bypass in the sense that it also clears the delay buffer, so you get the behavior as with regular stomp-box (i.e. no weird echos that remain in buffer and return right after switching the effect on again as is the rather common case with time based plug-ins, regular DAW bypass however exhibits this awkward behavior)
- Manual BPM sync – a set of six “kick” buttons and one three-way switch that allow quick setting of musically relevant delay times relative to actual project tempo
