EchoBoy includes 30 built-in echo styles modeled after various vintage echos, such as the warm sound of "Studio Tape", modeled after an ATR-102 half-inch two-track machine. EchoBoy provides instant access to a whole range of classics, including EchoPlex, Space Echo, Memory Man, DM-2, and the TelRay oilcan delay. EchoBoy's chorus even emulates the CE-2 chorus, considered a holy-grail of guitar chorus pedals.
No math needed to figure out delay times. Simply dial in a musical note value and lock it to your song's tempo with the flip of a switch. Fine-tune the echo rhythm with the Groove, Accent, and Feel controls. With these simple controls, dial in a musical sound that fits your style.
Switch to Dual Echo or Ping-Pong modes for powerful stereo echo effects or use Rhythm mode's easy-to-use 16-tap rhythmic delay. Under the Style Tweak button you'll find a 3-band parametric EQ with separate control over echo decay and tone. Choose the amount and type of analog saturation, dial in the amount of tape wobble, and even reverb-style diffusion control.

No ratings yet?! Unbelievable.
Where can I start with such a wonderful piece of software... Let's keep it simple.
Sound: Overall EchoBoy sounds very good. I wouldn't say it sounds real analog, but not cold harsh or digital at all. Just very good. Huge variety of sounds are possible thanks to the 31 (!!) different delay/chorus styles (from known types like Tape, Space Echo, Memory Man, DM-2, CE-1, etc.). Then you can drive those styles very nicely with the input. There are also new unique styles like Telephone, AM Radio or reverbish styles and so on that give you instant access to cool new sounds you normally don't expect from a delay. Still not satisfied? Go deeper into the style edit mode and create your own styles and save them.
Delay: You can expect the usual, but no extraordinary long delays. In most cases it is way enough. But if you need delays longer than 1 bar, you'll need to look for another contender. EchoBoy gives you two parameters for direct groove access: Groove and Feel. Generate fast and easy funky groove patterns. Besides the style you can dial in extra LPF and HPF. And switch between different delay modes (Single Echo, Dual Echo, Ping Pong and Rhythm Echo. Rhythm Echo is a very complex mode, where you can tap or paint your delays (and save them next to the already existing Rhythm Echo patterns). The other delay modes also gives you further in depth parameters like width, accent, offset and more.
There is much more. I just recommend you to get the demo. I promise you will buy EchoBoy afterwards. I use it all the time in every project multiple times.
One of the very few plugins I give a 10/10.Read more
