Chris Lord-Alge’s Signature Vocal Reverb + Slap Delay Effect


The diffused, bright sound of plate reverb, enhanced by adding slapback echo, are go-to effects for vocal and guitar leads. EchoSphere takes this popular pairing a giant step further, with models of the personal hardware used by Chris Lord-Alge (Foo Fighters, Muse, Springsteen).

EchoSphere distills years of Lord-Alge’s work, from straight country to the hardest of rock, with these magical processors. Now it’s your turn to add the same space, life, and depth to your mixes.
