Farewell to echoplex…
I’ve finally made the move from hardware to software (plus the inevitable controllers!). You can hear early fruits of this on tracks by my new duo “The Garden” here.
It’s been a wrench saying goodbye to my jamman, echoplex red sound, akira etc., but the sonic possibilities of software outweigh (to my ears) all the niggles associated with running windows at a live gig.
I’ve got the ableton looper plugin well and truly under foot-control now, multiple tracks, reversing, pitch change, synching, post-processing – there really is no limit to what can be done. I’m currently working on recreating the “quantise replace” feature. As yet a work in progress but I’ll probably get there one day 😉
