The Universal Audio Galaxy '74 tape echo & reverb effects pedal transports you to the halcyon era of analog delay and reverb. Emulating a revered Japanese tape echo from the 1970s down to the last wow and flutter, the Galaxy '74 conjures lush, warped textures that breathe new life into your tone. Its powerful dual-engine design runs separate reverb and delay signal paths in stereo for a sense of space that envelops you.

Authentic Tape Echo, Minus the Maintenance

The Galaxy '74 captures the full experience of the multi-head tape echo, from soft, rhythmic echoes to runaway self-oscillation. Double the delay times for effects not possible on the original and tap in tempos on the fly. You get all the character of tape—saturation, wow and flutter—without the hassle of splicing or replacing parts. Bend and warp minds in real time, all at your feet.

Spring Reverb Takes You to the Cosmos

Only the Galaxy '74 delivers the cavernous spring reverb of the original Space Echo. Sculpt sounds from subtle ambiance to dubby extremes with the Dwell control, launching your tone into another galaxy. No other emulation captures the essence of this iconic reverb quite like the Galaxy '74.

Dual Stereo Engines for Lifelike Depth

At the Galaxy '74's core are powerful dual engines that process the reverb and delay separately in stereo. You get stunning three-dimensional depth and imaging for a listening experience that fully envelops you. Analog dry through, spillover and stereo operation keep your core tone pure and natural.
