    BST MCE-550 Analog EchoPublished on 03/17/09 at 06:38
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    This box is a system that the Echo analog delay. I have no information concerning the operation of the box. Anyway, this box works without magntique band. The effect is not ditable via PC, etc ... No MIDI either ... No Tap Tempo either ... The box between two possde jack depending on the volume output of the instrument that connects ...
    You can connect a footswitch (footswitch pedals piano or amp) to dclencher or stopping the effect.

    UTILIZATION

    Gnrale configuration could not be simpler. 4 buttons. A volume, a mixer "dry / wet," a number of rglage rptitions a SETTING THE length of delay ... It's really not hard to find rglage its staff. I did not have a manual with the box, but…

    UTILIZATION

    Gnrale configuration could not be simpler. 4 buttons. A volume, a mixer "dry / wet," a number of rglage rptitions a SETTING THE length of delay ... It's really not hard to find rglage its staff. I did not have a manual with the box, but I really do not see that a manual could provide more information as.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effect is an effective and go far enough ... Nanmoins, must be qualified a little, the sound of the effect is even less pretty when a box of band Echo. Possde I echo the other box that works with TSB magntique band, and the sound is incomparable ... That said, the MCE-550 is of the same INTERESTED, and even if the sound is not embellish particulirement it is Ms. Fidler and is no natur by the effect. I test this with various instruments (keyboards, Farfisa, Nordstage 88, Fender Stratocaster and Mustang, Sh-101 etc ...), and the sound is really correct every time.
    The sound can range from a big reverb lgre capharnam of feedback ... It plutt versatile and usable in situations very Different.
    I do not put the maximum, because the sound is even worse when a band box ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year. Actually, I think what is really INTERESTED with this is its convenient and reliable ct ... It's less beautiful than other delays certainly ... But it is simple, cheap, and use sr. BST Echochamber band I possde meileure does have a sound, but it is much more fragile, and the bands are hard to find parts.
    I have to buy this box occas' forty euros ... What makes a report qualitprix all acceptable.
    I do it again this choice without worry.

    Echo Delay Type 100% analog.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple and no need to book.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Excellent. The effect is bleuffant and the quality is there. The effect analog light years of the poor quality of the best digital effects. It's alive and warm.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love that this delay does not cool and the sound in a mix works wonders. A really good product.

    This echo effect is an analog delay system. I don't have any information about how it works. It's not a tape delay. It can't be edited via PC, etc. No Midi... No tap tempo... It has two jack inputs for instruments with different output levels...

    It also has a footswitch connector to turn the effect on/off.

    UTILIZATION

    The setting couldn't be easier. Four controls. Volume, dry/wet balance, number of repetitions, delay time... It's very easy to find the right setting for every application. I don't have the user's manual but it would be useless anyway.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effective and versatile effect... But its sound is not as nice as a tape delay effect. I have another BST echo effect, which works with tape and the sound is much better... Anyway the MCE-550 is interesting because it sounds transparent and it doesn't alter the original signal. I tested this effect with several instruments (Farfisa, Nordstage 88, Fender Mustang and Stratocaster, SH-101, etc.) and the sound was pretty good with every instrument.

    The sound ranges from a slight reverb to a loud chaos... So the device is versatile and it can be used in many different applications.

    I don't give it the best mark because it doesn't sound as good as a tape delay...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using it for one year. It's basically a practical and reliable tool... It doesn't sound as nice as other delay effects... but it's easy to use, not expensive and reliable. The BST Echochamber tape echo I own sounds better but it's much less reliable and replacement tapes are difficult to find.

    I bought this effect secondhand at a very nice price... So the value for money is very reasonable.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
