Used / Vintage Effect Processors

There always seems to be someone lurking in the used/vintage effects area here
at Sonic Circus. It must be the lure of the spring reverbs and the time modulators
that have lately, all morphed into plugins. Thereʼs no computer required to get the
best sounds from this department. There is also the undeniable cool factor of
owning a real plate reverb. This is the place to make those audio dreams come
true. So keep your eyes on this spot if youʼre interested in a funky German spring
reverb, a vintage mastering processor, or a groovy Marshall Time Modulator.

AMS DMX 15-80S Broadcast Delay (Vintage)

Dual Channel Neve Processor Some may argue that plug-ins have replaced outboard processers. But there is a reason we are seeing a resurgence in outboard processing. There is no substitute for the warmth and power of the AMS 1580S Produced by Neve the unit became a go to for all of the major mix studios in the world. 
It has 2 independently delayed channels and can create extraordinary long delay times seconds when split between 2 channels. The in/outs can be selected as discrete mono or stereo with independent input controls. You can also chain the first channel into the second independently with 2 different algorithms and create some amazing spatial images. You can adjust the variable pitch shift up to one octave on each channel for rock steady harmonizer effects. The massive internal Torroidal transformer provides balanced output. The 1580 sounds warm buy will always maintain its 18Khz top bandwidth no matter how much gas you give it. 

It can also be used for sampling. You dub loops, which may also be driven in ‘single shot’ mode by the keypad, audio triggered by their respective inputs and the keyboard interface allows ‘playing’ of loop A in real time. You can edit the loops conveniently with the nudge key. 

The Neve 1580S is a great choice whether you are just looking for a great warm broadcast quality stereo outboard delay, or want to get deeper into pitch shifting and sampling.
