Sounds great, lovely effects by changing tempo and times whilst it's already working too. Never used a tape delay but I'm it's guessing similar.
H-Delay ROCKS!

Re: Delay plugins

There are two free delay plugins that I have been or am still using a lot: Ursa Lagrange (granular, still in my plugin folder) and Bionic (Supa) Delay (the "Supa" version is very flexible for a free delay: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
).

Regarding commercial plugins, I like Timeless 2 for modulated or evolving filtered delays, and Sandman Pro does nearly everything from pitch-shifting, glitching or reversing to tape or multi-tap with a nice modulation system... I would recommend both but Timeless makes especially sense if you are into filtered delays, Sandman is much more flexible and can be used for pretty much everything, but doesn't do modulated filtered delays as well as Timeless.

Still kicking myself for not taking advantage of the upgrade pricing, I didn't really use Sandman all that much, but seeing what Pro does I'm like "why did I pass on that"

I didn't use the original Sandman, only tried Sandman Pro after I started using Fault by the same developer. The Pro version is really flexible, just going through the presets is an interesting experience already.

They have regular deals at Pluginalliance, so you might be able to pick it up for a good price at another time. I even bought a few good plugins over there for maybe 10 or 20% of the normal price....

Re: Delay plugins

MFM2 is a dog to use, if i'm honest. All that flexibility, but ask yourself -- how much of it are you honestly gonna use? Delay can be complex, sure, but most applications of it are pretty simple.

My vote is for Timeless 2. It has the separate Dry and Wet knobs that the OP wants. It can also be as simple or complex as you need it to be.

Even with timeless I have some complaints about the interface being unclear, but overall it's great.

MFM2 is just... too much, imho.

+1 on tkdelay.

Is the Bitwig delay vst or it's own format ?

other unique delays worth considering:

GS-201 (modeled after RE-201 Space Echo)
Imperial Delay
Loomer Resound

free/shareware plug-ins:
TAL-Dub
WatKat

sorry, just saw now how old this thread is.

Re: Delay plugins

I love this thread. Keep bumping it. You can never have too many delays. I keep a few around just because they do one weird little thing sometimes.

Just been having a little bit of a play with the presets on Fabfilter Timeless. Really excells at doing unusual stuff. I really just like the way FabFilter does things with their plug-ins. Really well setup and intuitive. Not at all trying to mimic some piece of hardware, but rather software that actually makes logical sense to navigate.

As far as I can tell all the Bitwig FXs are native.

I wonder if Patcher in FL Studio would essentially accomplish the same thing?

Re: Delay plugins

Fabfilter has the best user interface of them.
The bitwig delay looks great, but taking on another daw would be too much of an effort.

Toneboosters has a delay (much like a 'swiss army knife') with many options called Module.
Off PSP delays Echo and the PCM42 inspired are also worth mentioning.

Re: Delay plugins

I already posted in here, but actually in retrospect my recommendation is for Fxpansion Bloom. The limitation with it is that it's a single stereo delay line, so you can only choose one delay time, there's no dual-line for getting different timings in the L/R channels....so it's very basic as a straight up delay, HOWEVER the modulation options are incredible, both with the trans-mod system and the 3x step sequencers, and there are some really great additional FX like diffusion, transient accentuation, filter drive, etc. And finally, it can do Reverses, which is oddly very rare in delay plugins...oh and it has Freeze! So, it's very basic as a single delay line, but then adds tons of mod and fx options into that....resulting in a very bad-ass delay effect overall. Plus the UI is big and clear. I've been getting a ton of use from it lately.

Re: Delay plugins

Bloom i tried a long time ago. I remember liking it, but it seemed to draw way more dsp power than other delays. Doesn't matter with a fast computer i guess, with my 6 year old laptop i am not qualified to complain

Awesome plugin with so many possiblities and a quite musical sound.

Echoboy it is a classic. But it has amazing features like distorting and filtering the delay and make each side feedback into themselves and get more filtered during time.

Re: Delay plugins

Echoboy Junior is well worth checking out. But echoboy is king as far as Im concerned. Got so many, just keep going back to it.

Slate/D16 Repeater is worth a check - but Im a little biased there.
Excalibur is well overlooked and a beast.
H-Delay already mentioned, again still keep going back to soundtoys.

Excalibur is awesome, tend to find a place for this with more creative moods - will hit you CPU hard.

Try any of the Tal delays - Dubdelay is really good.
Native Instruments Replika is very nice and has some great filter settings.

G-Soniques VTD42 is very spacial and superb for ambient and spacial sounds.

Surreal Machines Diffuse is pretty good, got it free a month or two back. But Dub machines looks very interesting. Not tried it yet.

Eventides H3000 bands and Factory delays are mind bending (not a fan of the guis thought).

Supertap is nice and simple.

Fabfilter Timeless worth checking out, but due for an update imho.

Do check out the stock delays in Cubase and also Maschine. Very good.
