    - Reproduction of the machine Roland RE-201 Space Echo, the parameters are the same: to choose what (s) "band (s)" will (have) set (s) for the echo and to cut or leave only The integrated reverb; knobs repeat rate, feedback and echo for echo volume, bass, treble and volume for the reverb.
    - Switch live in on / off in order to cut the initial sound (useful effect studio or "ambient")
    - Input and output mono or stereo (even more useful effect studio!)
    - Pedal tap integrated (twin)
    - COSM technology Boss from home (I know too that things change but to do well ...)

    UTILIZATION

    - The general configuration is it simple?
    Configuration and could not be more simple
    - Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?
    The sound editing is very intuitive, it is better to note the position of the knobs when you find a good sound because it is easily lost a trip ...
    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    Yes ...

    For those who would lose his hand, there is the pattern of positions (from 1 to 11) with the bands that are activated in each of them under the pedal!

    SOUND QUALITY

    - Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
    Well, the RE-201 can be a little colder but it's really small
    - Which instruments do you use?
    Usually after a Squier Standard Tele and Graphic Fuzz Electro Harmonix home and before a Vox AC30 to 78 ... it is quite sumptuous
    - Which ones you prefer, you hate?
    I love the echo and reverb ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    A few months
    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    + + + It is not too expensive and it sounds
    + + + Used as a studio effect
    + + + Integrated tap tempo
    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Digital Delay DD-3 or 5, 7 may be I know more ...
    I hesitated a lot between the RE-20 and DD-20 Giga Delay, I think I made the right choice for use I have ...
    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    Very good

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two days I think it is not yet fully available, I have good sources of acquisitions! The term is really appropriate space echo, as soon as the triggers there is a surround sound the most beautiful! And you can really get a normal echo of something more special! I have an expression pedal that I assigned to the feedback, it's called intensity and there is big foot to manage the rehearsal, tape saturation, etc., etc. For ..... you really have against the apprehend as an additional instrument, learn to manage the knobs against the other. Super delay!

    Edit 22/01/2010
    The sound is in no way echoes the warmth of the original strip, a power of browsing the net and listen to demos of those who own one can really identify the difference! The ER 20 may help but not replace it!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good stuff, no complaints. We get some chorus effects, tablecloths very spaces, classical rebounds.
    The next simulation of saturation bands is really nice. This gives sounds very typical.
    It's always ch .. to 200 euros in one foot but quickly forgotten.

At the time limit is trs good, Stereo is a little less (just a lack of space). I love the effects teak extension are not good with the pedals. The distortion should lgre raffle a dance floor in 30 seconds and that makes the charm of the space echo scares anyone sense (or not fill) and stopped their ears. I not also a small decrease in the level of engagement of the bypass. DEFINITIONS The bass is missing.

    Writ is not a space vritable cho. Stronger in one ear analog will not find the warmth of old prods.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Gained over 2 months. I use it occasionally on small plots on some old synths, nothing really transcendent. I wanted the space dbarrasser cho bulky tapes, but there is no picture, the re-150 is re-20 DGIG.
    A 200 euros pedals, not the price quality ratio is not as good as a. Whether rock, reggae, dub in, tekno in if you are looking very hot very good bunch, as you add a few pesetas, and a look to other models.

    I do not Rasht. It's a nice little pedals to make a beef or a little tripper, a dilettante. Not for a more pro home studio east.

    Good digital tape delay

    Boss RE-20 Space EchoPublished on 05/31/11 at 08:21
    If you like having effects on your should you probably want to have a tape delay unit. Real tape delay units are becoming very expensive. They require constant maintenence and replacement tape is getting hard to find. With technology now you are able to get a pedal that can simulate all the nuances of a real tape delay in a digital unit. With the RE-20 Boss has been able to replicate the classic Roland RE-201 SPace Echo in digital form. If you remember the old RE-201 it was a big monster of a unit full of delicate electronics and tape. The RE-20 is a twin pedal unit with 8 knobs on the front. The pedals control the on and off of the delay and the tap function. The 8 knobs are Bass, Treble, …

With the RE-20 Boss has been able to replicate the classic Roland RE-201 SPace Echo in digital form. If you remember the old RE-201 it was a big monster of a unit full of delicate electronics and tape. The RE-20 is a twin pedal unit with 8 knobs on the front. The pedals control the on and off of the delay and the tap function. The 8 knobs are Bass, Treble, Reverb volume, Repeat Rate, Intensity and Echo volume. There is also a large 12 mode selector. The unit also had twin inputs and outputs. It also has a jack for an expression pedal

    UTILIZATION

    The win pedals are large but they are not labeled. All the knobs are large and labeled. The knobs are big enough to where you can adjust the settings on the fly. The peak level LED is nice so you can see how hard you are pushing the pedal. The tap tempo pedal does what it says. It allows you to tap out a tempo for the delay. If you hold down the tap pedal it also allows you to change the intensity of the delay. You can use batteries but I would not recommend it. A pedal this large will go through batteries very fast.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It has a normal mode and long mode. Normal mode gets you up to 3 seconds of delay while long mode gets you up to 6 seconds of delay. The 12 mode selector replicates the 12 modes the original tape delay had. The RE-201 had different modes that used the different tape heads to get different sounds from the delay. The RE-20 simulates this digitally. Some of these different modes are a bit noisy. This may also be on purpose replicating the extra noise you would get from a real tape delay unit. At subtle setting it can act like a reverb pedal and at extreme settings the sound is extreme. Turning up the reverb can get you some crazy sounds. You can even get some wah sounds with this.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you want or had an old Roland RE-201 tape delay and are looking for something cheaper and more reliable this could be the unit for you. It has a ton of features more than anyone should need from just a delay pedal and with its modern design it should last you a long time.

    Excellent Tape Echo Emulator

    Boss RE-20 Space EchoPublished on 04/11/11 at 21:54
    The Boss RE-20 Space Echo is a digital take on the old tape echo units made by Roland. It has stereo ins and outs and an expression pedal input. It has a few different modes of delay, echo and reverb. You can control the levels of each effect. It's in a very durable twin pedal format. One footswitch turning the pedal on and off and the other being a tap tempo and a 'warping' function I'll cover later.

    UTILIZATION

    This is a very easy pedal to use. On/off switch and a tap tempo/warp switch. It has separate controls for the reverb and delay. The reverb knobs include: Bass, Treble and Reverb Volume. Volume being the level of reverb. The delay controls include: Repeat Rate, Intensity an…

    UTILIZATION

    This is a very easy pedal to use. On/off switch and a tap tempo/warp switch. It has separate controls for the reverb and delay. The reverb knobs include: Bass, Treble and Reverb Volume. Volume being the level of reverb. The delay controls include: Repeat Rate, Intensity and Echo volume. The Repeat rate is the same as the 'delay time'. The intensity is the amount of repeats. The pedal also has an input level that is active and controls your level if the pedal is on or off as well as a peak level LED showing when you are overloading the unit. You can make this pedal go into self-oscillation very easily. That brings me to the 'warp' mode. When you hold the tap tempo down the echo will start to oscillate and sound like someone is destroying the tape inside of an old echo unit. The manual, like most Boss manuals, is very helpful in showing you every nook and cranny this pedal has to offer.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The RE-20 Space Echo is a great unit that does not kill tone and has stellar sounding repeats. There is so much to be said about this pedal. I've used it with a few different guitars and amps and it seems to handle them all. It's truly a fantastic sounding echo unit.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The thing I like most about this pedal is the ability to control both the reverb and the delay separately to create a sonically pleasing delay tone. There are literally a million good things I can say about this unit. I've been extremely happy with it. It's really nice for the price and sounds great with any rig. The warp mode is a nice little touch that is really fun to play with. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different in a delay.

    Although originally used

    Boss RE-20 Space EchoPublished on 09/22/10 at 11:31
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I've had 2 years, bought the closed eyes saw good feedback (...) I have had the product.
    I completely original tape, etc. I just wanted something good and varied simple to use allowing more than other pedals.

    To start, adjustable input volume, for use between my Tech21 triac and a power amp without any adjustment (fortunately only 30w).
    Then, for use in parallel loop or mixer, it can be 100p100 wet.
    Already at this stage other delays are worth it.
    Tap tempo of course, with the tails (ends when one bypasses repetition effect, very nice) please.
    Onboard reverb, always useful as it is adjustable, just like eq echo repetitions.
    Competition sinks more and more!

    Competition sinks more and more!
    With a passive expression pedal is more flexible, I'm using it to cut the delay while keeping the reverb ...
    Noel koa ...

    UTILIZATION

    Using live without worry thanks to the AA battery power (lesser concern for power supply is disconnected and the boss turns on its batteries, not c..).
    It's simple to manage, and very readable.

    That it is better to walk around the craft quietly at home eh ...

    In short you turn the knobs and pulls his preferences as we dab

    SOUND QUALITY

    So there is very varied, the paradise of keyboardists, for example (the trick is equipped with stereo input / output and more)!
    I use it probably 5p100 possibilities, a simple delay with reverb and basta I'm a little ashamed huh ...
    But the sound quality is very good, not digital sounding at all, even if a memory toy EH impresses more punch and warmth level.

    Anyway I am very happy with the results, leaving the right pedal down for a moment the sound is accelerating as a magneto crazy cool!

    Considering the particularity of the craft he can not be awarded the maximum score in fact!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love this machine, simple to use I make of it is difficult to replace (the triac programmed fixed and the RE20 sounds like master volume / reverb, delay in premium).

    The price is low given its enormous potential, it's sturdy and apparently he (my GP20 series for ages and its service is always impeccable, despite the inevitable jostling).

    I can only recommend the trick!

    If your budget is too limited, memory eh toy is the best choice but it is not the same thing, even from afar.

    The facias will still run after the original roland space echo 201, strips the background noise and stuff. Of course!

    Boss RE-20 Space EchoPublished on 05/15/09 at 20:50
    The Boss RE-20 Space Echo is a reverb and delay guitar effects pedal. It has 11 different modes for all different types of delays and reverbs and has ¼ inch inputs and outputs. It is powered by the power supply that comes with it and I believe there is no way to power it with a battery. This is not a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.

    UTILIZATION

    It only takes a small amount of time to get used to the Boss RE-20 Space Echo and to learn how to use everything. The pedal has a variety of knobs including one to choose the mode, and then a whole slew of different parameters to control the tone including for bass, treble, reverb volume, repeat rate, intensity, echo vo…

    UTILIZATION

    It only takes a small amount of time to get used to the Boss RE-20 Space Echo and to learn how to use everything. The pedal has a variety of knobs including one to choose the mode, and then a whole slew of different parameters to control the tone including for bass, treble, reverb volume, repeat rate, intensity, echo volume, and input volume. It has two separate foot pedals and also has the ability to tap out the tempo which comes in very handy for the delay effects. The manual for the Boss RE-20 Space Echo is pretty informative but I wouldn’t worry about it if you don’t have one as it is easy enough to use on its own.

    SOUND QUALITY

    While the sound quality of the Boss RE-20 Space Echo doesn’t match that of the original classic Roland Space Echo, it still has an overall awesome sound to it. The different types of reverb and delay effects are pretty endless with this unit thanks to all of the different modes and parameters made available. I’ve used this pedal both for recording and live shows and it has proved to be a superior pedal for any application.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I’ve only been using Boss RE-20 Space Echo for about six months but in that time I’ve really grown to love this pedal. Not only is it extremely versatile, but pretty much all of the possibilities have a clean sound to them and all sound pretty professional. While there is no replacing the original Space Echo, the Boss RE-20 Space Echo does a nice job of emulating the classic unit and making it available to those of us who want that classic sound in the convenience of a digital pedal.
