      Hi there,

      I was wondering if anyone had managed to figured out a good way to replicate dub echo from the pioneer djm series
      EXAMPLE – https://youtu.be/PsGKytWYECQ

      Curious on what you might have tried already.  I would think Tape Echo or Vintage Delay can pull it off easily.  With an expression pedal (if you have one) controlling Feedback, for that runaway effect.  Be careful with bringing Feedback between 100-110.

      • Tape Echo, adding in some Saturation, Wow & Flutter.  Filter to darken it up.
      • Vintage Delay for BBD-style.  Some Bit reduction, some Mod Depth & slower Mod Speed for the wobbling, and again fold in Filter darkening.

      In either algorithm, I might use the same BPM equivalent for both Delay times.  That is – for example – use 333 ms. instead of an 1/8th note at 90 BPM.  Then vary that millisecond value a little, for that pitch-shifting-type effect (again, with an expression pedal, HotKnob, or manually).  There are BPM Tempo to Millisecond calculators all over the ‘net.

        Sorry for the late reply, missed the notification on the post.

        Thanks for the notes, I was using/playing with tape echo, and i have made a few different presets for echoing, but the kind of darken tin-ey trails (definitely not the musical term for what its doing) was where I was struggling. Honestly i was little confused technically what it was doing on the effect.

        I’ll give your idea a crack this week! thanks again. I love a good dub echo, so id love to be able to control and understand it better 🙂
