KORG SE-500 STAGE ECHO
Outstanding S/N ratio, professional specs, and remote voltage control capability.
Against the rising tide of electronic echo units, Korg developed the SE-500 to optimize the advantages of the tape echo system.
This unit employs a large-scale DC direct-drive servo motor for striking rotational speed accuracy, and specially designed noise reduction circuitry to ensure a very high signal-to-noise ratio.
Five playback heads give a variety of effects from simulated reverb to a 1.5 second maximum long delay.
With the SOS (sound on sound) feature, you can even double up on yourself and play on top of a whole passage.
Controls including effect switches and tape speed are voltage controlled to allow remote control via outboard units or synthesizer.
