Tiptop Echoz delay in euro, OTO BAM for verb . . . Like others have said, I dint see the immediate need to cv the fook outta reverb, so...
How do you like your Tiptop ECHOZ? I just bought one (don't have it yet). Opinions were rather meh on another board, but I thought its demos sounded great. Also, agree about CV-able reverbs being largely unnecessary, but I did prefer having everything in the rack so that's why I got the ZVERB also (though, I'm sure your BAM sounds great!).
I think the echoz ok but I don't have too much to compare it to. Like cable tv, I just find myself flicking until I find something interesting (what ever that means) and leave it there for whatever I'm pissing around with.
I cannot say it jumps out at me in anyway but to be certain (with all my biases,) I'd like to try it against others eg chronoblob, modcan, fx aid etc*) just for the audio aspect- not the ergonomics. Though, I think delays are better suited than verbs for CVing and I have had some aurally compelling movements. Just a little a little triangle lfo into the time cv, you know, the amount that's barely perceptible is generally how I roll.
The fidelity can be an interesting way of adding some grit/ dirt.
I have printed off the chest sheet but as all this end-of-chain stuff is currently not my priority, I haven't started making notes of favourite settings.
One word of caution: I run it via a Frap Tools Group module and depending on how your mixer works, you need to think about the gain staging and mix settings in the tip top as well as your mixer. I found it's sounded very meh for a little while until really played around with it.
I'm not one for being massively hung up on colours but the black does look great. It deserves adding to blinken lights favourite modules thread.
Sorry for the ramble-ly nature of my reply, but I hope it helps.
*I almost forgot I have a Roland 301! My dusty memory is that it sounded in a different league... but this is mirrored in their respective price tags.
