The kits arrived! I bought three eTap2Hw kits and additional parts from Newtone.nl – one for me and two for friends to build. The kits consist of a small ‘daughterboard’ containing a DSP circuit and a motherboard to mount this on with support components. The DSP coding is by my friend Piet Verbruggen and he also designed the motherboard. He calls his system the eTap2HW. ‘eTap’ means echo tapper because it is based on the multi-head or multi-tap tape echos from the 60’s and ‘HW’ because it is a hardware implementation of a software plug-in Piet developed some years back.
