The Echo Fix EF-X2 is a tape echo with spring reverb and additional DSP Reverb and Chorus reminiscent of the classic Space Echo.
The Echo Fix EF-X2 recreates the legendary sound of the classic tape echo device but adds many modern appointments such as a modern Line input preamp to complement a vintage FET EP guitar preamp, CV control (0-5 volts). Both preamps feature a 1Meg impedance which means that they can both be used as line or guitar inputs with different tones.
7 modes let you choose which of the three play heads are selected and in which combination. A Sound on Sound mode adds a fourth playhead on top of all three for a total of 14 total modes.
It also includes a DSP reverb with a blend control letting you set the amount of DSP and Spring reverbs. The DSP reverb can become a DSP chorus effect at the flick of a switch.
