The Eventide UltraTap Delay/Reverb Pedal is a unique multi-tap effect pedal capable of rhythmic delays, glitchy reverbs, huge pad-like volume swells and extraordinary modulation. The perfect tool for staccato leads, swelling chords and other evolving effects, this Eventide multi-tap effect pedal even tackles reversed reverbs with no problem. Think of UltraTap as the mother of all Echoplexes and you won’t be too far off. That’s basically how it operates but with the flexibility to add as many ‘tape heads’ as necessary and expressively control their positions and levels.

UltraTap's controls make it possible to discover new and unexpected effects with all the controls you'd expect in a multi-tap delay pedal—Number of Taps, Delay and Feedback. Additional controls for Spread, Slurm and Chop open up even more sonic possibilities. "Slurm" is an exclusive and innovative control that smears/slurs taps together to create truly unique reverbs and choruses while "Chop" and "Spd/Rise/Rel" combine to allow unusual and expressive modulation of the taps based on LFO shapes or the audio's envelope. "Feedback" unlocks further tone shaping capability and "Taps" selects up to 64 taps to create simple repeats or morph delays into chorus and reverb. The "Spread" function controls the 'distance' between' taps. With the knob centered, the taps are equally spaced, turn clockwise and the later taps are bunched together, counterclockwise and the early taps are bunched together. Use this control to dial in the perfect rhythmic space between taps. Onboard LFOs and envelopes to chop the sound source into stuttered rhythms and  he "Tap Footswitch" allows you to set the tempo of the taps.
