Here's a cozy fireside moment with the Ekko 600 (bright). I'm loving the texture of the repeats on this guy.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-792431262323358314&hl=en

in order, I go through:

-Edge style rhythm repeats
-self oscillation on long delays with the feedback up.
-dotted eighth echoes
-slapback


Malekko makes a bright and dark version of this delay. I have the bright version which is closer to a DMM. The dark, I've been told is closer to the tone of a tape delay.

With lush tone, features, and a nice small size, the Ekko 600 is a welcome addition to my rig.

I don't have either of those on hand to directly compare, but I'm really liking the warm character of the Ekko 600. If you are looking for maximum lushness than maybe the Ekko 600 dark would be more of your style. You might try dropping Malekko a line and see what he (Josh) thinks would work best for you.

Nice demo...are you running it in buffer or true bypass mode?

It was in the buffer mode.


i'm a fan of the malekko delay ...

but it really does sound a lot muddier than your maxon in your videos.

The AD-900 may win for clarity, but the Ekko 600 has much better oscilation and is much vibier in the way that the repeats morph and mutate. The second output and the expression input are also welcome additions, not to mention it's smaller footprint. I actually am keeping both on my board now.

Fatback - do you remember what your settings were for these clips? I especially liked the first two.
