GSi releases Echo B2 - Simulation of a Binson Echorec B2


GSi has released Echo B2, a digital reproduction of a particular unit of Binson Echorec B2 from 1965.

GSi says:

This unit, despite being so old, still has its original tubes and has had very little service in the last 30 years. We don't know how this unit sounded when it was new, but this is how it sounds today, in 2022. It has to be said that the Echorec B2, despite being less famous than its big brother the Echorec 2, shares with it the same magnetic drum, the same magnetic heads, same mechanism and pretty much the same circuitry, practically the same sound in a more compact unit.

Echo B2 features all controls found on the original unit, plus 4 extra knobs for adjusting the alignment of each head (aka Azimuth on tape machines), one extra knob to slow down the drum motor up to half the normal speed (to obtain doubled delay times) and one last knob to adjust the level of audible circuit hiss.

Echo B2 is available for Windows and MacOS in VST, VST3, Audio Unit and StandAlone, and for iPad as an App and with AUv3 extension.

Price: € 30,00 (+TAX if applicable).
