Cosmos Echo (Roland® RE-201 Space Echo)

Cosmos Echo, the Helix model of a Roland® RE-201 Space Echo

Stock delay settings. Sample played with a Charvel Classic 475 using the Deluxe Reverb Helix model at default amp and cab settings.

The Roland RE-201, commonly known as the Space Echo, is an audio analog delay effects unit produced by the Roland Corporation. Produced from 1974 to 1990, the unit was widely used and continues to be preferred over digital delay units by a number of guitarists, who praise its sound and reliability.

There are several control dials on the device that alter such aspects as tape speed, repeat pattern (an 11-position rotary switch), one instrument and two microphone inputs, a single analog backlit VU meter for all three inputs, wet/dry mix for both echo and reverb, and intensity (number of repeats), that can be adjusted to a user's liking; and bass/treble controls to EQ the sound of the repeats (not the dry signal), as well as dry and effected "Echo" output jacks with a switch for output setting (-10, -20, -35db levels.)

Used as a delay/echo, the Roland RE-201 is said to produce a potentially unpredictable delay that is warm and gritty sounding. It is also capable of producing a large variety of its own sound effects, even without an input signal (by turning the intensity control to maximum and allowing the unit to self-regenerate, or self-oscillate, while manipulating the tape speed and other controls).

This is my default preset for my 6 String guitars these days. Litigator handling Clean and mid-gain, and Badonk handling mid gain to high gain. 4 Snaps -- Litigator Clean, Litigator Drive, Badonk Green, and Badonk Red. FS2 activates a faux Organ sound (sounds great with snapshot 2), Stomps sprinkled in for compression, Fuzz, and time-based effects.
