ECHOSON: Legendary Magnetic Delay

ECHOSON is Overloud's recreation of a legendary Italian magnetic disc delay unit. Its unique tone helped define the Pink Floyd sound in the '70s.

"I loved the photo-realistic GUI and the unique ability to add any number of your own Scribble Strip notes anywhere on the front of the plug-in GUI–more plug-in companies should copy this feature. Echoson is easy on CPU usage and I'm using it more and more–it's a great and unique new color now on my mixing palette!" —Barry Rudolph (Music Connection Magazine)

ECHOSON extends the features of the original hardware, adding digital flexibility to the character of analog processing.

Echoson Stereo Mode


You can process left and right channels with different settings (Mono), send delays to the opposite channel (Cross) and combine the two channels (Verb).
Echoson Heads Control


You can switch playback heads on or off individually and decide which ones are fed back to the loop.
Echoson Adjustable Time


While the original hardware has a fixed delay time of 310 milliseconds, the Echoson allows you to choose a different tempo and even sync it to the song's BPM.

The original delay units were manufactured in the '60s and '70s by an Italian company. These are currently in high demand thanks to their unique tone, which adds more than a touch of personality to modern recordings. It's the secret weapon of many contemporary engineers and producers that use this delay on vocals, keyboards and drums to achieve a special tone.


A Unique And Flexible Soundchain

While a normal tape echo's input signal was recorded to tape, this unit differed by recording the signal onto a circular spinning magnetic disc with four record and playback heads positioned around it. This mechanism allowed for a more stable transport than tape devices while providing a distinctive sound full of character. ECHOSON captures every nuance of the original machine's design.
