VariSpeed is a WEM Copicat IC-400 Belt Drive VariSpeed model simulation.
This was the first tape echo machine made by WEM with a DC capstan motor capable of changing speed, thus varying the delay time.
VariSpeed replicates the hardware instrument with all its pros and cons, without any additional feature except the fact that it is digital and MIDI-controllable.
This can be considered as the second chapter of a tribute to the genius of Mr. Charlie Watkins that GSi began back in 2008 with the release of the freeware WatKat, which was a simulation of the Custom Copicat
