Roland RE-5 Vintage 80's Digital Space Echo - Japan Release Only - 100V

The Roland RE-5 was released in 1988. This unit was only ever released in Japan so you don't see them for sale very often. The RE-5 was capable of producing a dual-tap delay effect up to 300ms and in keeping with Space Echo tradition, it also features a digital reverb circuit. Whilst most agree that it doesn't sound much at all like a tape Space Echo, it has found some favour in recent years with the retro crowd who enjoy the unique tones created by early digital equipment with low sample rates.

This unit has 5 presets. Space Echo 1, 2, 3 and Rev Echo 1, 2. There is a bass and treble adjustment and Intensity, Repeat and Reverb level controls. All three affect the Space Echo presets 1-2 while 3 is unaffected by the Reverb level control. Rev Echo Presets 1-2 are only affected by the the Reverb level control.
