Just wondered what you guys are using for those fade into oblivion delays? I have used most I think and still can't find one that blows my socks off. My current fave is the free Analogic Delay http://www.interruptor.ch/vst_overview.shtml which is wicked but wondered if anyone using any others they like?
If you are on a budget, Waves SuperTap is great as well and comes in their Musician's II Bundle with a LOT of other great plugins for VERY little money (about $150 street). It's available in both VST and RTAS
Try Sonicflavours DP5. I've been looking for a decent VST modulation delay for some time - it's amazing how many delays out there are fairly useless for serious work.
Very few allow you to type in the delay time in milliseconds. DP5 is well set up for both synced and non-synced.
I liked the Ohmboyz demo, and nearly bought it. The structure is pretty weird though. I was extremely pissed to find that with the main delays, you can't set it up for a single slap echo. They are permanently stuck in some feedback mode, so if you have 0 feedback, you get 0 delay (not a single slap). So it's very limited unless you like what you get. I guess you could piss around with the wierd Predelays - but you don't get the resonant filtes on those, which is the main appeal of the thing. Very strange - which is unfortunate, because I like the basic sound quality. The demo hisses waaay too loud if you use up your free trial time - so it's not possible to play around with it to see if it's workable. It's not that it's very deep - just badly designed.
All of those VST recommendations on this post our great. I usally use Cubase's Double delay for simple stuff. It's efficient for me.
Although, now, I'd really like to get into some crazy delay stuff for dance music. Most of the delay's that i've tried have the filters and what not but I would like to see some extra fx. I've tried the GRM delay as well and I really liked the reverse type delays it creates. I'd like to know if there is a Delay that can be tweeked to change the pitch of the sample while it echoed out?
If anyone could name off some really cool unique delays that they've tried, it would greatly be appreciated.
another big thumbs up for Soundtoys here.
haven't been reaching out for other ones since i purchased this baby.
for more exotic stuff try GRM Tools, which has a wonderful delay in its bundle, or toy with native instruments Spektral delay... !
Yeah Sound toys definitely has some crazy stuff. The "SOUND TOYS Crystalizer" actually pitches the sample up and down!! CRAZY!! I will also have to try out the spektral Delay and do some more fooling around with GRM tools.
