Dubb Box is a virtual tape delay, loosely modelled on my venerable Roland Space Echo.

Does a fairly good job of emulating the tape saturation, unpredictability and wild self-oscillation of the real deal. Features main echo and 'second-tapehead' sub-echoes, as well as adjustable vintageness (tape hiss, motor inertia, tape and motor age).

Not as snappy (slapback) when set at a fast delay but sounds quite good for long and spacey delay. Btw you should check out the v2 of this tape delay by searching the arcdev plugin pack on music society (you'll need an account though) where it has a few changes and added features such as a effects mix, ms/beat delay time, oh and a mono reverb which can be set on pre/post (not a spring reverb sound but sounds like a room)

it loads ok for me, but no sound comes out. you can see input coming into the plugin, but nothing comes out. the other arcDev delay works ok tho...

Really good tape echo! I think it will be better, when there was a build spring reverb as in original Space Echo.

Hi! It's very good vst, but please make it into 64 bit version, because Ableton do not see it and I would like to use it in this DAW. In Fl Studio it was working very good!

Hey, thank you all folks who developed this! It sounds amazing, so similar to the Roland tape echo that my father was using in the 80s, I was helping him with the PA back then and loved it. Awsome old Echo sound, still my favourite! Bless you all and thanks for sharing!

Nice plugin! Is there any possibility to map the controls to my Akai LPD8?

Sound is damn good. It's free but has to be jbridged on 64bit DAW's. Running smoothly on Win7 and Studio One Pro 3 64bit. Cannot understand those negative comments. I guess those people have never heard a real tape echo in their life before. Pretty good emulation.

Nice sounding delay, adds a good vibe. Don't forget about the 'hiss' knob...

From manual: "The Dubb Box is not for nice, clean delay effects - use it for grimy,unpredictable dub echos and feedback." I thought that sound quality could be better, but I should read the manual before using it :)

I like this... this comes closer to a real tape unit.. On my mac i use 3 ring circuits Echolux It's not free but it's one of the more authentic sounding echos modeled after the echoplex more then the Roland.. but This one is fantastic for my PC. great job and thanks
