The Universal Audio UAFX Orion Tape Echo emerges as a guitar effects pedal that transports the enchanting vintage essence of '70s Maestro Echoplex EP-III tape delays right onto your pedalboard. This compact stompbox comes equipped with three true-to-life tape delay emulations, an analogue preamp circuit, and customisable parameters, all poised to elevate your sonic landscape.

Drawing upon the same top-tier algorithms found in the acclaimed Starlight Echo Station, the Orion Tape Echo bestows upon you opulent, multidimensional effects that outshine rival tape delay pedals in its category. Its meticulous replication of the EP-III's solid-state preamp introduces a layer of grit and character to your sound, effortlessly tweakable via a single control knob.

With the freedom to select from three tape machine personas – Mint, Worn, and Old, along with the capacity to finesse the Wonk control for modulated repeats, you unlock a spectrum of tones, textures, and even quirky tape splice-inspired sounds.
