It sounds really good and can do a couple of nice types of echoes. The controls are very similar to the Roland Space Echo. Unfortunately I have problems with the stability of mine. The tape gets stuck all the time, and it is really annoying. But 20 Euro is very cheap! Get it, and we will be two persons using this machine!
Ah! Thanks for replying. This is the first time anyone has tried to give me any reply. I have a degausser, so I will try degaussing. I find it interesting to hear that a Roland can do the same. It probably means it is something of a more general nature and not something related to this particular model, and that is good news in a way. Of course it's not good for anybody that the machines behave like this, but it gives me hope that I can fix it. Did degaussing fix the problem for you?
I bought a MX-312 by Multivox (very similar to the Roland space echos but not made by Roland, contrary to some rumors) from a guy on ebay about a year ago. What a mess it was when I got it! I found there was no fine adjustment of delay time because someone had removed the leads to the control pot and soldered a resistor in its place. Very limited delay times! But I solved that problem and that's a whole other post about lessons learned from ebay anyway.. <BR> <BR>The guy also insisted on using "studio quality" reel to reel tape from radio shack or Ampex 456 for the loops. It came loaded with a loop of the radio shack tape that would jam and wrap around the capstan. The guy offered to send me some 456 from a reel he had ordered but I don't think either of those are the proper substitute. So it was a trip to the thrift store for some old 8-tracks with healthy looking tape. <BR> <BR>"Endless loop" carts such as the 8-track are loaded with lubricated tape and work the best out of anything I've tried. No jamming problems at all.
hi!about problem off stability with <BR>tape echo there is a little piece off metal just ` <BR>before the head around the tape (mine is re 201) <BR>when you adjust it ,it allows a longer feedback <BR>but the stability is affected ,on the other way <BR>the feedback is shorter but stability is going <BR>better .I've adjust mine like this the little girl's woking fine(:-)
