The RE-301 is a great piece of kit: the multi-head echo combinations, Accutronics powered spring reverb, Roland chorus and the Sound On Sound feature all add up to a classic piece of studio gear. A fine example of this iconic machine; Brian Setzer’s favorite tape echo.
You can freely combine each of chorus, echo and reverb effects to produce varied effect sound. Sound on sound effect is possible, which enables duet by a single instrument by doubled performance by reproducing input sound 10 - 30 seconds later or adding another effect sound.
Twin output system is employed to enhance chorus effect, sound dispersion, and echo effect, which assures rich acoustic effect and stereophonic feeling.
Wow and flutter is minimized by use of a free-running system, which also serves to extend the tape life over 300 hours.
