Demedash Effects – T-120 Videotape Echo v2
The Sound of Nostalgia
Inspired by the garbled audio that accompanies worn-out and poorly aged budget bin video tape, the T-120 Videotape Echo gives you exactly the type of sound that you're hearing in your head when you look at it.
Feed your guitar through the T-120, and the recorded playback will be the sound of low bandwidth tape being fed haphazardly through a magnetic read head by an uncalibrated, unbalanced feed mechanism.
The updates to the standard T-120 include soft switching, momentary activation, and 2 added 'secondary' parameters (Glide & Randomize) accessible by holding down the footswitch and adjusing the 'Depth' and 'Speed' knobs, respectively.
These controls let you adjust the smoothness of the modulation transitions (from pitch jumps to smooth pitch glides), and blend between a fully periodic, standard modulating waveform and a totally random one.
An illustration of these functions is shown in the plot.
