On the Kramer Master Tape's Delay section, the "Delay Time" is how long before the first repeat. You can set it to either be "Slapback" mode, meaning only one repeat, or "Feedback" mode, where there are more than one repeat. The 'Feedback' knob is essentially how loud you want the repeats to be, and the "Lowpass" is what frequency you want to start rolling off the highs at on the repeats.
I don't know if this answers your question or not, because it's not clear to me what you're actually asking. Also, all of the above information I just shared is readily available on the Waves site. You might want to visit there to learn more details.
Hope this helps in some way.
I am sorry if you see it that way.
I am not here to be your teacher, but it seems impossible to avoid here
The Waves manual is misleading you here because its just wrong about the feedbackpart.
That is part of the confusion here.
Also the technical support for Waves is great,
but if you read the history of creating this plugin,
you will maybe find the answere for your confusion.
Simply the feedback is possible to use as a singel effect by itself.
Technical support personal is not necessarily authorised sound-engingeres.
So they are not allowed to tell you anything about the feedback part.
Thats part of whats considered advanced signal processing,
and of course its kept secrete a little bit then how its done.
So my question is even more confusing then,
because very few seems to understand,
that feedback is done without delay also.
My question though is about the Slap now ,
I dont know what to say about it more than that we have built one prototype,
just a little bit better analog prototype than the Kramer Mastertape,
in terms of just using the feedback Knob.
We have a two part knob, and the lower is doing Subass-feedback and the upper is doing sort of higpass-feedback.
The highpass is done in the lowest subbass register.
Sorry if I have to tell you that and I really want to know from my point of view then,
about what the Slap Is doing when the delay knob is on zero.
Its also unclear if the alternatives is a choice,
that I have to do between them or if they actually work both in the same time,
but when I tried just once it did not seem so.
