The warmth of vintage tape echo units and none of the headaches!
El Capistan is the perfect choice for anyone who wants for the warmth of vintage tape delays, but doesn't fancy calibrating and maintaining a vintage unit.
El Capistan provides three different tape machine types in one, each with three unique modes.
With ten parameters to tweak, you get extensive control over tape quality, machine health and tone shaping.
Go from the sound of a pristine, studio-quality tape machine to the heavily fluctuating sound of a machine in need of service!
Get the full bodied sound of fresh tape all the way to the gnarled qualities of worn out tape!
Because it’s DSP driven, you get a range of tape experiences unattainable with a traditional tape machine.
Three distinct tape machine types, each with three separate modes.
Fixed Head: Time knob varies the tape speed (Short, Medium, Long delay) while the playback head is fixed in position.
Multi Head: 2 of 3 playback heads are selected at once (Heads 1 & 2, Heads 2 & 3 or Heads 1 & 3). Time knob varies tape speed.
Single Head: Tape speed is fixed while the Time knob varies the position of a sliding record head (Double speed, Normal speed or Sound on Sound).
Sound on Sound mode: a built-in tape-style looper!
El Capistan gives you a Sound on Sound mode with some cool features.
When you enter the mode, the machine is already recording, just like a traditional tape echo machine.
Strymon goes several steps further by giving you instant tape splice and bulk erase functions. It’s like having a built-in tape-style looper!
You get 20 seconds of tape in slow speed, 10 seconds in fast speed.
