Ever since we've launched the Elka Panther we got the question: Can I use the tape delay outside of the Panther? Well, with our new Lem Echo Music VST2 / AU plug-in now you can!


The Lem Echo Music plugin recreates the nostalgic tones of the vintage Italian tape delay effect from Lem. Our authentic emulation simulates the classic sound of three playheads on one strip of tape, with all the wonderful wow, flutter, and degradation of the original.

We’ve also added enhanced features not found on the original effect to make this plugin even more customisable when crafting your sound.

Intro price: $19.50 (50% off)

When you register the Lem Echo Music plugin you will also receive a 24% off coupon for the Elka Panther, which can be redeemed at any time!

Audio demo: Guitar dry/wet

P.S.: If you already own a Elka Panther license, then you get the Lem Echo Music for free!

Did a quick test yesterday. I have quite a few delay plugins already, but this one certainly is useful, also because of the reverb. Nice vintage sound. 8)

Now I'm a bit spoiled by other delay plugins that have adjustable delay times. Would it be possible to add a motor speed feature or something like that, so you could slow down/speed up the tape and thus make the delay times longer/shorter?

Will do some more testing this weekend. I haven't yet tried driving the input for example. I couldn't find anything online about the type of preamp that the original LEM had and I don't know if this preamp has been modeled as well by Martinic.

The Lem Echo Music will let Adobe Audition crash on mono tracks. We just released the Lem Echo Music version v1.0.1 that fixes this crash with mono input/output for all DAW's.
