Again, continuing the discussion from the “Best delay pedal available today?” I wanted to look further into the Boss RE-20 Space Echo and see what it’s all about. I see it’s the rebirth of the Roland RE-201 Space Echo, including the modeling of the “tape flutter” and “magnetic head sound saturation”. I love the sound of that. Has tap control and expression pedal.
Here is Boss’ description:
One of the most beloved echo effects ever made, the Roland RE-201 Space Echo, has been reborn as the BOSS RE-20 Twin Pedal! Experience the legendary tape-echo sound of the RE-201, and get “lost in space” with this retro-modern marvel.
Amazing simulation of the famous Roland RE-201 guitar pedal, with the spacious, analog tone of the original Space Echo
Faithful modeling of the RE-201’s tape flutter and magnetic head sound saturation
Tap input pedal allows delay time to be set by foot
Longer delay time than the original RE-201
Control parameters such as REPEAT RATE, INTENSITY, and more via Expression pedal.
MODE SELECTOR knob with 12 placements just like the original Space Echo
I found a nice video BOSSChannel that shows it’s features quite nicely
