    Definitely among my favorite delay plugins, based on sound and cool little tricks it can do.

    Much like reverb I've yet to find one delay plugin that does everything. Echoboy comes awfully close, and were I not so lazy maybe it even does?

    I don't think you can go wrong with any of the ST plugins.

    Computer Music reviewed Colour Copy in the latest issue. They said it "sounds utterly awesome at pretty much every setting." They also said that Timeless 2 or EchoBoy might be more intuitive, while adding that Colour Copy is worth the learning curve. They gave EchoBoy 10/10 when reviewing it some time ago and Colour Copy received 9/10 in the current issue.

    In other words, yes, Colour Copy (and of course EchoBoy) is worth a serious look.

    Best,

    Echoboy is killer. But really, everything from SoundToys is killer. I love each and every one of those effects.

    The bundle is worth every penny, especially if you find it discounted on Black Friday.

    Soundtoys has periodically offered one of their plugins for free. In the past if you have one of these "free" plugins it will count towards having a plugin which will get you a discount on buying the bundle on one of their sales. Get on the mailing list so you will know when and if they announce one of their plugins is for free over a short period of time. Think it has happened twice over the last year or so.

    Echoboy is on pretty much all my mixes, maybe with the exception of the most puristic orchestral recordings - and even there I could find use for it if I would give it a try.

    I'd say that this plug-in and Vienna Suite's Master EQ cover about 60 to 70 percent of all processing and effect needs in my pop/rock/EDM mixes. :)
