A highly playable and extremely flexible "echo centric" multi effects processor. Echo Pad is capable of an endless range of sounds including authentic dub echo, crystal echoes and multi-tap delay, to chaotic self-oscillating analog delays and bit crushed mayhem.
Compatible with Audiobus 2 including full state saving, Inter-App Audio, and USB audio interfaces. Control Echo Pad's parameters via MIDI and sync to external MIDI clock or IAA clock for beat synced delays. Guitarists will appreciate features like delay ducking and gated feedback.
Effects include: Tape Echo, Shimmer Delay, Oil Can Delay, Multi-Tap (up to 6 taps), Stereo Delay, Decimator, Flanger, Distortion,Smooth Filter, Loopers and more.
>SmiteMatterMusic: "Echo Pad is so innovative all around. I never knew just how much I needed this until I had it in my hands. I recommend giving it a try." (www.smitematter.com)
>Jordan Rudess/Wizdom Music: "This is a super fantastic - extremely trippy effects app, which harnesses the power of an iOS device to offer you control that is only possible on a multitouch device. "
Process live audio from nearly any input source, including Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible hosts such as Auria and Cubasis, use the built in mic, professional audio interfaces such as the Apogee Jam, Apogee MIC, iRig HD, and more. Guitarists can use our effects live by connecting the output of their audio interface to an amp.

Ratings and Reviews
still the best live dub delay on iOS
Great for live dub. The pitch changes with the delay time, like a proper old delay. Many apps get that wrong. Feedback control goes to way over 100%, allowing immediate self-generation. Works fine on iOS 11.
A real gem.
I've been sitting on this app for sometime now. I had a hard time figuring it out as it doesn't seem real intuitive (atleast to me) turns out that it is easier than it looks. There is a 10 minute video on the developers site that will get you up to speed real quick. (He also shows you how to optimize and clear apps from memory that i find myself showing people all the time) I love this app and shame on me for letting it sit for 3 months. I would suggest labels for the two dry/mix and feedback sliders located in the top middle of the controls. If you happen to have a recording interface on your computer and Irig cable, you should run an output into the Irig and headphone out back into your interface, to create an effects loop I've been getting some good mileage out of that as well. If you feel its christmas every time you see updates available on your AppStore icon then this guy is santy klouse!
A great effect sitting in the middle of the bus!
Echo pad has been around and steadily improves its feature set. I especially liked when the oil can delay came out. It somehow fit just right with a tune I was working on, doing a cool number on some percussion, and I was thankful then but never got around to saying it. It's almost too feature laden for me and I'm not bagging on the app at all, I just don't get around to all the automated parameter control and the use of the turntables for looping- I think...(probably would be handier than my slow process...) and the various other semi automated parameters and loopers. I think that since I have older hardware I have to make sacrifices and I really love a minimal interface that just has the capacity to do sonic mayhem and with echo pad you got yourself a modern bunch of SPX90's and then some - ready to tackle the subtle or armed for industrial music if you want to head that way! Thanks for the great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
