Many digital delays have a "tape" setting that simulates tape delays. If you're asking what that setting does, it varies from pedal to pedal.In tape, I’m referring to digital representation.
the tape delay simulation in the line 6 helix sounds authentic to me and sounds nothing like the digital delays in the Helix.I can hear the difference between digital and analog on my ipad speakers. I cant hear the difference between digital and tape. That is my question. What is the sound difference to the ear between digital and digitally represented tape Delay?
I take this as the highest of compliments and I love my Squier Stratocaster!Not here much, and the first place I go I read posts like yours. Maybe I should hang out more. Sometimes I play Fenders though...does that mean I'm out??
I decided to go with the Aion Fx Ares PCB (it's a Clinch Fx EP Pre clone) as opposed to the EP Booster because I did not need the additional gain that the EP Booster supplied and I wanted something more true to the Echoplex preamp.I use an EP Booster first on my board. It's a great buffer and gives that famous analog goose.
I'm was a little confused by the OP at first. Digital emulation of tape and magnetic delay, whether with a solid state or tube preamp, is really varied.There is a massive difference between a real tube and tape echo and digital.
it’s like a classic tube amp vs…a pod maybe?
The gain thing is my only beef. I keep it all the way down, but tend to turn it off playing "dead clean", which really isn't at all. The flip side is it sounds great turned up with a strat. Ooops did I say that out loud?I take this as the highest of compliments and I love my Squier Stratocaster!

The El Cap takes on some very wonderful properties when being hit with an Echoplex preamp, provided it is not one of the gainier ones.
Wow, what a helpful response... and from a senior contributor. NOT.Surely a search of this on youtube would have been the most logical way to get an answer for this. You would have known the answer in person and with your own ears before you even managed to type in your thread.
