Three Vintage Echo Machines: Drum Delay With Unprecedented Control

The Volante offers magnetic drum echoes known for their warmth and harmonically rich, saturated sounds. These echoes are meticulously reproduced within Volante, allowing you to dial in any sound from pristine factory settings to road-worn classics. Experience the full range of the best vintage drum echo units, with every tube stage carefully emulated to deliver authentic tones.

Classic Tape Echo Experience

With Volante, you can achieve superbly crafted multi-head tape echoes, complete with smooth tape saturation and characteristic imperfections. Mechanical alignment, head wear, and tape anomalies are all faithfully recreated, providing the richness and complexity of vintage machines with modern control and stability. Volante also allows you to mimic the irregular head spacing of classic tape echo machines, enhancing your creative possibilities.

True Studio Tape Sound

The Studio Echo of the Volante offers the cleanest sound among its three magnetic echo types, sustaining the highest number of repeats with minimal degradation. This mode delivers pristine studio delay with the full-bodied warmth and fidelity of reel-to-reel tape, making it perfect for professional-quality audio reproduction and creative engineering.
