Universal Audio UAFX Orion Tape Echo Pedal Overview

The Universal Audio UAFX Orion Tape Echo Pedal puts the authentic sound of the iconic Maestro Echoplex EP-III, including an emulation of the analogue preamp circuit and wow/flutter, onto your pedalboard.

Universal Audio presents the UAFX Orion Tape Echo, a faithful recreation of the famous Maestro Echoplex EP-III tape delay that was used by Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen and Neil Young. Combining timeless tape delay tone with the reliability of a modern pedal, the Orion Tape Echo promises to be an enduring addition to any guitarist’s pedalboard.

With the UAFX Orion Tape Echo, history meets the future. This isn’t about mere nostalgia; it’s about honouring a classic sound while infusing it with cutting-edge technology. Featuring the same algorithm from the flagship Starlight Echo Station, the Orion Tape Echo invites guitarists to journey back to the 70s. The UAFX Orion presents that cherished, hazy delay effect that the Echoplex EP-III tape delay is revered for.

Pristine Vintage Preamp Ambience

The Orion Tape Echo doesn’t just stop at delay. It houses a spot-on replication of the EP-III’s iconic solid-state preamp. This preamp reproduction guarantees the vintage warmth and grit that musicians have been craving, all easily controlled and shaped to fit any performance or recording session.

Versatility in Tape Age and Texture

The Universal Audio Orion tape echo features three distinct EP-III emulations - Mint, Worn, and Old. This gives you three distinctive flavours of vintage tape echo, from the consistent repeats of “Mint” to the unpredictable character of “Old”. The additional “Wonk” control is the key to diverse modulated repeats and unique tape splice textures.

Durable Design for the Performing Artist

Designed for the demands of the touring musician, the Orion Tape Echo boasts the same robust build quality that you’ve come to expect from UAFX series pedals. It’s compact, yet loaded with vital features like switchable true/trails bypass and an intuitive Preamp off/on switch found on top of the pedal. Analogue dry-through ensures no latency is added when the Orion is switched on or off.
