I got my first article published this week!

http://www.rolandcorp.com.au/blog/magic-of-tape-echo/

Part of my job is to submit articles to the Roland Australia blog, and this is the first one I've done so far. It's piece to educate people who have heard the term "tape echo" before but aren't really sure what all the fuss is about.

Check it out, and let me know what you think!

Well done Matt. That's required reading for anyone playing with a modern echo simulator; makes it clear what you are adjusting and why. Great stuff; I look forward to more from you. Got any links to the Boss pedal story itself? The models produced (and retired) over the years and how they developed and evolved?

I have been playing with an old Echoplex recently. Cool factor aside, the fiddly, temperamental nature of the beast makes me very grateful for modern technology!

nice article, easy to follow :)

I remember the lead guitarist in one of the local bands I used to watch at the local cricket club back in the very early 80s was extremely proud of his WEM CopyCat tape echo when he got it and used it a hell of a lot. That was an odd looking piece of kit, but reasonably portable.

I used to play in a duo when I was young with a flautist who used a WEM Copycat. The soaring, ethereal sounds he got from that rig are some of my favourites to this day.
