Is there a list of all Tape Echo units ever made?

All about the tools and techniques involved in capturing sound, in the studio or on location.

I have the music running from my Auto DJ software so no need to control anything but if needed I can control the main features from my phone if/whenever need to skip track or search for and load/play any tune.

Would be nice to have the RE20 to play around with wherever I'm sitting.

Only one way to find out right? :P

Good thing is I can try both units at the same time and if it should not work then I can send them back and only lose on the shipping.

Regarding the RE20 connection what would be the configuration for the foot pedal and my rig? Right now I have a Digitech RDS 1900 fx machine's OUT and IN going into the Tape Monitor on my Pioneer SR 303 Reverb.

No worries on the Mono, my rig is in Mono mode.

Remember you'll need two sets. I'm assuming they are 2.4GHz but the listing is not very informative in that regard. Digital ones usually auto select free channels but if not you'll need two different channels. Also they will only give you mono (you would need 4 for stereo).

edit :- Hi Elf :thumbup:

Basically the same system as the Digitech. use the in and out of the RP20 in conjunction with the send and return on the desk.
