The magic of reel-to-reel tape machines on your pedalboard!

Tape machines are capable of creating a huge range of beautiful, distinctive, and enveloping sounds.

Deco brings these vintage tape effects to your pedalboard!

Deco’s Tape Saturation smooths out your sound with delicious tape compression and saturation, while fattening it with subtle tape-driven transparent overdrive.

The Doubletracker controls provides the power to shift your sound in many ways.

Achieve syrupy slapback tape echoes, psychedelic tape flanging, and gorgeous tape chorusing sounds!


Classic Sound, New Features.

The second generation Deco gives you the same gorgeous Rotary sounds, while adding several significant new features.

These exciting enhancements allow for additional flexibility, power, and ease of use on stage and in the studio.


Full MIDI capabilities!

Full MIDI implementation means you can control just about every switch, knob, and setting remotely via MIDI.

Lag Deck delay time can be synchronized via MIDI Clock Sync, and the sync setting can be saved for each preset.

300 MIDI preset locations are available for loading and saving your favorite settings!


New Tonal Options.

Strymon added new controls for even more sonic flexibility.

Deco now comes with an all-new cassette tape voicing!

This voicing employs an auto level control process common to high-end cassette tape recorders, resulting in a compressed, fat tone.

In addition, a new dedicated Tone knob lets you adjust the tone of the Tape Saturation exactly to your liking, from dark to bright.

Un effet stupéfiant, c’est le moins que l’on puisse dire! Si le son de « flange » de bande magnétique s’avère le ticket d’entrée, la modélisation de la saturation des dites bandes, de la chaleur qu’elles confèrent et de leur compression n’en sont pas moins impressionnantes: comme le disait un autre internaute, c’est l’un des meilleurs sons d’overdrive que j’aie entendus, et ce, même s’il s’agit d’une émulation digitale! Si comme moi vous n’utilisez pas de délai à outrance, vous trouverez juste ce qu’il vous faut ici aussi. Enfin, cette pédale doit être utilisée en stéréo pour en mesurer la pleine puissance: l’image acoustique affichée est immersive au possible!
