The Replicator from T-Rex is an effects pedal with record, playback, and erase heads for true analog tape delay or echoes. There are two playback heads: one is tap-tempo controllable, and the other is independently bypass-able and dependent on the tape speed. The pedal can be used by musicians, producers, and engineers for guitar or keyboard applications such as live stage, recordings, rehearsals, theater, and more.
The Replicator features tap-tempo control with a delay time from 8 milliseconds to 3 seconds. Saturation, feedback, delay time, and delay level controls regulate the echo effects, and built-in tape modulation varies the tape speed and pitch modulation to provide chorus effects. A master boost control delivers overall volume boosts from unity gain to +20 dB.
The 24 VDC powered Replicator offers high headroom in excess of +20 dBu, and is designed with an all-analog signal path. A true 85 kHz, 60V oscillator ensures pre-magnetization of the C30 1/8" chrome tape cassette, which is easy to replace if needed. Additionally, four individual foot switches select the pedal's general on/off status, the on/off status for Head II, the on/off status of the chorus effect, and tap tempo.
