After being asked: "Is all of your processing/production work done inside Ableton Live?", he answered "There are a few third-party gizmos that I couldn't live without. The PSP Vintage Warmer is on everything; the SoundToys stuff goes well beyond anything you'd expect from a delay unit - it almost has a voice of its own; and CamelPhat is a versatile combined filter and overdrive - a very creative tool."more
“I can’t rate this delay highly enough. Echoboy is really tweakable, so you can fine-tune your delay to an amazing degree. It’s such a user- friendly plugin. Its ping-pong delay and the saturation settings are just great, and the Tweak and Style Edit buttons are fantastic for creating unique delay effects.”more
I'll bring in some delay. If not the Space Echo or the Memory Man, I'll go with software and use Soundtoy's Echoboy. Although Echoboy emulates a lot of hardware I have in the studio, I find myself using it more and more, simply because of how flexible it is. And it really nails the sounds—it's hands-down the best software delay out there.more
Do you use plug-ins on the guitar tracks, too? I always EQ the guitar, yeah. There are some pretty harsh overtones that you need to get rid of. Maybe I’ll compress it a little bit. Again, it depends on what it’s needed for. Usually the only plug-ins I use on guitar are ones that help the guitar spread out. If I want a little bit more stereo widening, then maybe I’ll use, like, a Waves S1 Stereo Imager, or maybe go through a Soundtoys EchoBoy plug-in with very minimal settings, just to give a bit of wideness to the guitar. Very rarely … well, lately I’ve been using it a little bit more, because sometimes it’s nice to have a big stereo-reverb sound, kind of like a Chris Isaak vibe. I’ll go through a reverb to make a nice, big sound—sort of like what you hear in “Z-Boys,” that clean guitar with a nice, big stereo sound. But I don’t record my guitar in stereo—it’s all mono. So if I want to do something stereo, then I’ll put a stereo plug-in on.more
"And I do use a lot of plugins too for effects. I love EchoBoy. That’s been one of my favorite plugins for a long time. I think that’s actually the biggest bang for your buck out there on the Internet because the thing only costs $179. And not only does it give you every delay known to man, but it gives you amazing special effects. It’s a great, great plugin." - Henderson about SoundToys EchoBoy.more
"The Sound- Toys plug-ins have some of the same feel as the Eventide—especially Crystallizer, which combines delays with harmony effects. Other SoundToys plugs I like are FilterFreak, a powerful analog-like filter; Tremolator, which emulates old tremolo sounds; Sound- Blender for multieffects; and EchoBoy for delay."more
In an interview, when asked what some of their favorite VST / FX Racks are, Odesza reply, "Right now, my go to is Soundtoys. They have the best delay I’ve ever used..." (original interview [here](http://lostinsound.org/odesza-interview/)). The EchoBoy is SountToys' most renown delay plugin, so it can be assumed this is the one referenced by Odesza despite them not naming it exactly.more
The 'Echo Boy' by Soundtoys is by far one of the most useful weapons one can ever deploy in the war on shitty music... it's SOOOOOO MUCH MORE than a delay unit... the 'Echo Boy' is a fuckin' Rhythm Machine Deluxe... Just apply it to anything rhythmic (hi-hats and shakers, drum beat loops, guitar parts, vocals, etc...) and tweak the knobs, experiment with its different MODES... Sure it can be used as a regular delay unit if that's what you want, but it goes places the other girls CAN'T...!!!
