Eventide’s UltraTap Delay Is Now in a Standalone Pedal Leave a comment

Eventide has released a standalone hardware version of its UltraTap delay.

Per the brand, “UltraTap is a unique multi-tap effect pedal capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells, and extraordinary modulation.” It went on to say that the pedal is perfect for “staccato leads, swelling chords, and other evolving effects—everything from reversed reverbs to the sound of ripping it up in the Grand Canyon!”

Eventide refers to the stompbox as the “the mother of all Echoplexes.” Meaning, the UltraTap works like a multi-headed tape delay, but you may include as many tape heads as you wish, and manage their output levels and delay time.

Control-wise, the UltraTap carries self-explanatory controls such as mix, pre-delay, feedback, and tap division. In addition to that, the Taps dial lets you choose up to 64 taps, while its secondary function, Slurm, “smears/slurs taps together to create truly unique reverbs and choruses.”

Meanwhile, the Spread knob allows for equally centering the taps or grouping them closer together at either the beginning or end of the overall delay time. Moreover, Chop enables extensive modulation options, along with swells and envelope-based effects.

Other handy features include a mono input and stereo output plus the ability to store five directly-accessible presets, or as much as 127 with a midi connection.

The UltraTap retails for $279, with shipping starting on April 13. Learn more at the Eventide website.
