The Echoleffe Tape Delay is an audio plug-in for your DAW that gives you the sounds and spirit of a fabulous, all-tube tape delay from 1961. It adds effortless character and vintage mojo to your recordings and mixes. But it’s TONS more than just a tape delay.
Three different operational modes give you delay effects, tape saturation and a tube preamp. You have to hear this thing. You’ll poop the console.
The ETD is a fantastic tape delay simulation with unmatched versatility and sonics. From pristine vocal echoes to outer space flange effects, the ETD is a tool that brings out your creativity.
Tape Saturation mode switches off the delays and turns the ETD into a dedicated tape saturator. Add a gentle warmth or completely overload the signal, and adjust wow and flutter for unique, modulated effects.
The ETD’s tube preamp simulator adds a gorgeous warmth and richness to any signal you pass through it. No delay, no saturation, just pure tube preamp glow... or crank up the gain and make things explode.
The Echoleffe Tape Delay features three delay lines that can be independently panned across the stereo field, EQ'd and tweaked for effects ranging from subtle to massive. Add some grit with the overly exaggerated bias adjustment, or use the filters to created lo-fi echo effects. Tempo sync to your DAW for perfectly timed echoes based on music note values, or set the time manually for up to 4 seconds of delay per delay line.
Beyond just delay, you have extensive control of all aspects of the tape. Tweak the age of the unit, simulate wearing out motors and tape heads and change tape formulations. Set Wow and Flutter for flanging and detune effects. Create reverbs that shimmer and move. Or nail the guitar sounds of your favorite players. The Echoleffe is massively versatile and fun to use.
Top engineers often cut critical tracks on analog tape to get the sound of tape saturation. Tracks recorded to analog tape tend to sit better in the mix, thanks to the gentle compression and sweet harmonics that come from tape saturation. Now you can get that sound on your mixes using the ETD. Adjust all parameters - from gain to bias to tape formulations and age. The ETD can be as gorgeous as a vintage analog tape deck, or as crunched and nasty as you want it to be.
The heart of any audio system is its preamp. The ETD’s preamp is an enhanced recreation of a tube circuit from the late 1950s that sounded so good it was made into a guitar amp. Our ETD gives you complete control of that tube circuit so you can further tailor the sound of your delays, or use just the preamp to warm up a track or create a unique fuzz tone. Strap it across the mix bus. Fix a thin bass. The ETD tube preamp mode gives you simple yet effective controls to help shape your tracks.

Great sounding plug-in, from an great company !
I’m a bit of an old school guy. So always looking for something familiar that’s brings back good memories of the past, the glue, saturation, depth and just plain vibe for days the second you flip the switch. Found it!!!!!! Man, this is ridiculous!!!!!!!!
They could have stripped this down and just offered it as a dedicated tape saturator or a tube amp simulator and it would have been worth it. The delay is versatile enough to cover pretty much anything you want, with the ability to tweek every parameter you can think of. Manual/Tempo Synched delay, EQ, bias, […]
These are life changing plugins!! Dan’s setting are just ridiculous! He’s an amazing human being too! Thank you for making such amazing plugins - Billy Dawson
Has its own sound. A lot of "analog delay" plugins sound muddy and similar, this is very specific and can fit in a mix easily. Worth the money if you need another flavor. Also good saturation options if you turn the delays off.
Like all the Korneff stuff, it's brilliant and SO "tweakable"!
Hey Dan & Luke ... ok ... I LOVE this delay, it sounds deluxe,[like all you stuff] straight up, then there's much delight in the tweaking the flexibility within, from beautiful warm tape to seriously cool super messed up sounds, it's magnificent in stereo : that's when the magic happens .... big thanks, was worth […]
Great and actually pretty unique plugin, and a great deal of fun at that!
This was my first Hardware Echo…i played back all kinds of records after school and make my stepfather go freak… This does the same things i dreamed of for long. Thank you Korneff people 🙏 Ralf Goldking
These plugins are unique and go over and beyond my expectations, for adding colour and umph to my tracks. Keep up the good work.
These plugins go over and beyond my expectations. They add sooo much colour and umph to my productions. Keep up the good work.
This thing is giving my favored PSP Echo a run for its money! Excellent analog sound, but the bonus is the saturation and tube preamp! I feel like I robbed someone - I paid for one plugin, but got three! Kudos to Dan (and Luke) at Korneff Audio!
This isn't like any other tape delay plugin I already have and I have quite a few. There's a lot of scope for tweaking the sound and I love the crusty vibe you can get from it. It does (fairly) clean too though. With the tape saturation and preamp options you can use it for […]
The best tape delay emulation! Saturation and preamp modes are wonderful too and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite mojo plugins.
