The RE201 features an organic delay effect combined with retro spring reverb. This is not a new, pristine sounding digital effect - it's an old school tape loop jobbie with lots of warmth and character, very similar to a Maestro Echoplex but better in our opinion because its more flexible and includes a reverberator! Widely used in dub, reggae, hiphop, techno, drum n bass, trance and ambient music and is of course all over music from the 70s and 80s too.
