El Capistan gives a warm tape echo sound with three different tape machine types in one, each with three modes. There are ten parameters to tweak, for control over tape quality, machine health and tone shaping. You can get the sound of a pristine, studio-quality tape machine or a heavily fluctuating sound of a machine in need of service. It’s DSP driven, and designed to give you a range of tape experiences beyond what you can get with a traditional tape machine. It uses dTape™ technology.
