Hi. I own echobode for quite some time and I love it.
I want to replicate some of what it does on my modular rig. I´m particularly struggling with the "smear" knob. I don´t quite understand what it actually does. From the manual:
"...smearing the phases of the signal spectrum through a section of all-pass delays. Notice that the smearing section is located inside the feedback path and that it introduces additional delay time."
Still, don´t get what it does nor how to replicate it. Any ideas?
I'm not sure how easy that would be to replicate with existing modules. All-pass delays are building blocks inside reverb algorithms and the smearing section inside Echobode has been carefully design and optimized for this particular signal chain.
I guess the nearest you could come with some external gear would be with a simple but clean, very short reverb. Something that does not color the sound at all, so nothing with early reflections. Just an extremely short white reverb tail.
I just realized that they are all-pass DELAYS (they were all-pass FILTERS to me, which lead me to a phaser effect).
Thanks for the tip! I´ll try that.
