EBS is celebrating 30 years in the business this year. While they have tried and true products, that doesn’t mean they aren’t innovating. This year at the NAMM Show they previewed the ReTracer Delay, a compact pedal that utilizes new hardware and software from the company.
The ReTracer offers twelve distinct engines to produce different effects. “Benefit from useful features like preserved Tail when you change program (on/off selectable); various Bypass modes; different Loop modes to use other effects to change the character of your delay; Mono, Stereo or Dual (true stereo) operation; extensive Tap tempo functions, etcetera,” EBS writes. “The ReTracer comes with a dozen different Engines, some of them featuring modulation effects.”
The pedal allows you to configure your own presets and has 200 slots for saving them. It supports MIDI and expression pedals for flexibility, and the pedal can update via firmware direct from EBS.
The ReTracer is in the final stages of prototyping. EBS says it is expected to ship in the spring with an estimated price of $299.
