At Soundtoys we are more than a little obsessed with delay effects, and EchoBoy is the ultimate realization of that obsession. It wraps decades of echo device history and new forward-thinking features into one versatile effect that will find its way into every corner of your mixes.

Vintage Tone

We dug deep into our collection of vintage gear to find the essence of our favorite echo boxes, and we channeled it into EchoBoy. You’ll find an echo tone that fits your mix easily by choosing one of the 30 built-in styles modeled on vintage gear. Get instant access to a whole range of classic echo box tones, including EchoPlex, Space Echo, Memory Man, DM-2, and the TelRay oil can delay.

EchoBoy’s chorus even emulates the CE-1 chorus, considered a holy-grail of guitar chorus pedals. We’ve also modeled other gear to give you a range of sounds that goes beyond standard delay stompboxes. If you want warm, smooth saturation, try the “Studio Tape” style, inspired by our Ampex ATR-102 half-inch two-track machine. And yes, turn it up! EchoBoy sounds great when pushed hard, just like the best analog gear.

Designed for Musicians

We designed EchoBoy with musicians in mind, and we’ve made it easy to get expressive, musical echo effects quickly. Unlike vintage hardware echoes, getting perfectly timed delays with EchoBoy is simple. Just dial in a musical note value and lock it to your song’s tempo with the flip of a switch.

But the real magic happens when you fine-tune the echo’s rhythm with the Groove, Feel and Accent controls. Create echoes that rush or drag against the beat. Add some shuffle or swing to match the groove of your song. EchoBoy is the only delay effect that gives you this level of musical groove control.

Expressive Tools

EchoBoy is easy to use, but it’s also incredibly versatile and offers a wealth of advanced features for those who want to explore. Keep it simple with Single Echo mode, Switch to Dual Echo or Ping-Pong modes for powerful stereo echo effects, or dive deep with EchoBoy’s powerful Rhythm mode and the Echo Style editor.

New Rhythms

If you’re bored with conventional delay effects, switch EchoBoy to Rhythm Echo mode for a new experience entirely. In this mode EchoBoy lets you select the rhythmic timing of up to 16 repeats. Rhythm Mode is like having a tape echo with up to 16 read heads (or “taps”).

You can add taps to the Rhythm Editor graph, control their timing and sculpt their loudness curve using the Shape control. Rhythm Echo mode is a unique take on delay effects that might just become your new secret weapon in the studio.

Deep Customization Options

Slide open the Style Editor to get access to a full set creative tools that let you create any delay sound you can dream up.

Choose the amount and type of analog saturation to get the vibe just right. Dial in some realistic tape wobble, or add reverb-style diffusion.

Quotes

“EchoBoy is on every track of Peter’s vocal.” – Richard Chappell – Real World/Peter Gabriel

“Calling EchoBoy a delay plug-in is doing it a disservice.  It has become the first thing I turn to for treating a wide variety of sources.  An EXCELLENT sound / space shaping tool and the most flexible and musical delay out there.”  – Trent Reznor – Nine Inch Nails

“EchoBoy strikes gold… organically rich, lush echoes and attitude to spare.” – Remix Magazine

“EchoBoy rocks, plain and simple.” – EQ Magazine

“EchoBoy is capable of every conceivable type of audio delay effect due to its imaginative and musical design, super-comprehensive list of parameters and options, and its unique and completely editable Style section for emulating echo units used in music over the last 60 years.” – Mix Magazine
