Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo

The El Capistan dTape Echo effects pedal actually delivers the sound and feel of your favorite vintage Tape Echo. In order to faithfully recreate every last tonal nuance, Strymon sound design labs relentlessly focused on capturing the warm, saturated, distinctive qualities of these vintage machines. The result is their hand-crafted, ''dTape technology'', which utilizes a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP that aims every drop of processing power towards the task at hand.

El Capistan provides three different tape machine types in one, each with three unique modes- Fixed Head, Multi Head and Single Head. Ten tweakable parameters allow for extensive control over tape quality, machine health and tone shaping. Go from the sound of a pristine, studio-quality tape machine to the heavily fluctuating sound of a machine in need of service. Get the full bodied sound of fresh tape all the way to the gnarled qualities of worn out tape. Because it's DSP driven, you get a range of tape experiences unattainable with a traditional tape machine. All of this without the headaches of tape machine maintenance and repair!

Sound Design:

  • Hand crafted ''dTape'' algorithms deliver meticulous and nuanced recreations of tape echo systems.
  • Three tape machines in one: Fixed (one fixed playback head), Multi (multiple playback heads), andSingle (sliding record head)
  • Each tape machine has three modes for extremely flexible echo options
  • Five tape adjustment and tone shaping knobs: Time, Mix, Tape Age, Repeats, Wow & Flutter
  • Five "hidden" knobs for extensive tone tweaking:Tape Crinkle, Tape Bias, Low End Contour, Spring Reverb, +/- 3dB Boost/Cut
  • Sound on Sound mode with instant tape spliceand bulk erase. A built-in tape-style looper!

Ins, Outs, Switches:

  • Stereo output, high impedance mono input
  • Expression pedal input with selectable control over any knob parameter
  • Connect our optional "Favorite Switch" to save a favorite preset
  • Tap Tempo and Bypass footswitches

Audio Quality:

  • Ultra low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters
  • 115dB typical signal to noise
  • Analog dry path for a zero latency dry signal that is never converted to digital
  • Premium analog front end and output section
  • Super high performance DSP in a compact form factor

More:
