Multi-Head Tape Delays: Roland RE-201, RE-20 & Strymon Volante – That Pedal Show

Multi-Head Tape Delays: Roland RE-201, RE-20 & Strymon Volante – That Pedal Show

July 10, 2020

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/xS2ZWpLxkzQ

 

We compare an original Roland RE-201 Space Echo with the RE-20 pedal, Strymon Volante and EchoFix EF-X2.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome to the episode. A little while back, Dan and I did a video on single-head tape delays based on our love of the Echoplex sound. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/iDdK8QMcF2I
Now it’s the turn of the multi-head tape machine, specifically the classic Roland RE-201 Space Echo that debuted all the way back in 1974. We have some simple questions…
How much does the old, analogue RE-201 sound like the ‘new’ RE-20 digital pedal?
What about the EchoFix and the Strymon Volante?
Can Dan put together a Heath-Robinson pedalboard that simulates what a multi-head tape delay does?
Let’s do this – enjoy the episode!
