EC-300 Echo Collection
The EC-300 Echo Collection brings the sound of dozens of echo and chorus effects into a single plug-in.

The three delay types - Magnetic, Digital, and Analog - come with a generous collection of user controls, plenty of character modes, highly stylized visual feedback, and McDSP’s nearly two decades of gear modeling experience.

Each EC-300 delay type comes with additional character modes to create new and unique sounds. Other delay features include adjustable saturation, wow and flutter, delay output ducking, in-loop filtering and EQ, and level control at the input and output stages. The EC-300 can operate in single, dual, and ping-pong modes, and delay time can be synced to session playback or to a tapped tempo.

  • Three delay types - Magnetic, Digital, and Analog

  • Wide variety of character modes per delay type

  • Saturation, Wow, Flutter, Ducking, and other delay features

  • Single, dual, and ping-pong delay operation

  • Tap tempo and session sync

  • Double precision processing

  • Mono, stereo, and mono-to-stereo versions
  • HD v6: AAX DSP/Native, AU, VST3

  • Native v6: AAX Native, AU, VST3
When creating echo effects, the amount each delay on the EC-300 is fed back into the other can add some complex variation for believable ambient effects. Modulation effects like flanging also benefit from a modest amount of Feedback Mix.
Stereo Width
The Width, Offset and Spread controls each setup the stereo field of the EC-300 in different ways. The Width controls the stereo panning of Delay 1 and Delay 2 with a single knob. 0% pans Delay 1 and 2 in the center, 100% pans Delay 1 hard left and Delay 2 hard right, and values above 100% provide ‘pseudo- stereo’ effects.
The Digital delay model takes saturation effects a few steps further by offering Bit Depth adjustment to control the actual fidelity of the delay itself, and a fairly extensive list of simulated impulse models (SIMs) from the TEC Award nominated FutzBox plug-in. Maybe routing your delay feedback through a fax machine does not sound like a good idea. But the complex processing of the SIM really enhances the range of flange, chorus, and echo effects achievable in the EC-300, unlike any other delay available.
"The EC-300 Echo Collection is another favorite. It is a Swiss Army knife of a delay module! Whether you want a warm analog echo, a tape delay with evolving character, or a uniquely crafted effected digital delay, the EC300 gives you the tools to easily sculpt what you are hearing in your head or get you to a place of inspiration when the 'same old, same old' just isn’t cutting it."
