  • Delay8 - 8-line modulated delay (freebie)

    There is a thread for this at KVR but figured it might be appropriate here too. We never really have enough delays, do we?

    Here is a freebie 8-line modulated delay VST plug-in: http://tonecarver.wordpress.com/delay8/
    Stereo in, stereo out. 8 individual delay lines, with individual tap times and modulations.
    Up to 2 seconds delay per line. Delays specified as milliseconds or beat divisions (sync to host).
    Delay lines can be combined in series and parallel to create complex delays.
    Good for delays, choruses, and subtle audio convection.
    Windows x32 and x64.

    The User Guide and the GUI need more polish but the audio engine seems pretty solid. I had plans to add more features for this .. then I started working on a looper so this plug might not see some updates for a little while. :blush:

    Have fun. Let me know if you have any issues with it.

    Thanks for this, TC..and I hope you continue working on this in the future..seems like a pretty useful VSTi to have in the toolbox on first glance. I certainly am looking forward to trying it out.

    By the way, are you open to suggestions / ideas for future projects? Just wondering, as I have one in ind, but totally lack the skills and funds to make it a reality..but I think there is a need for such an plugin/program.

      I got this a couple of days ago, but haven't opened up a DAW since finishing up for the compilation...gives me a good reason to!

              Excellent work.

              I can think of a couple of commercial products this makes redundant. :D

                Delay8 is used on the master bus of my AO One Sample Challenge #13 submission.

                It ROCKS! :rockon: Delay8 is going to see some heavy use, right along with my Audio Damage and Melda Productions plugs.

                Excellent work!

                  I must ask though; what's the purpose of the brown area top left? Maybe a future waveform display or something...?

                    Thanks very much for this tonecarver. This will surely be extremely useful.

                      Glad it is working well for everyone. Sorry to the Mac users .. I wish I could provide something there but I don't have a Mac platform so I can't buld and test for that.

                      That area is reserved for a future drag-n-drop drawing area to build up the delay chains. The idea is to be able to drag a widget into the area to activate a delay line, drag a line from one delay widget to another to set up a serial chain, drag a line from delay widget to the walls to define the output path for a delay, etc. Just an easier way to visualize and construct the signal flows through the plugin. I'd like to get that done someday but I'm focused on a different plug-in at the moment so the updates to Delay8 will have to wait until that gets finished.

                        That sounds like a great idea, much easier to visualise the signal flow.

                        I played with Delay8 a lot last night and, to be honest, can see me pretty much retiring something like rp-delay for it. I like rp-delays sound but always struggle with it's GUI. Maybe if Delay8 had some more options in the feedback path (saturation, filters etc) then it would be perfect for my needs (rp-delays mod options are cool but params can always be modulated by the DAW if needed).

                        Having said that, I rarely use the saturation options on more than a tap or two at a time, saturation on multiple lines soon gets uncontrollable. Maybe concentrate on a simpler delay with a more retro sound for those occasions it's needed and leave Delay8 for the multiple tap madness.

                          Finally got around to giving this a whirl, and agree with all the yay-sayers! Covers a lot of ground indeed.

                            This may be of interest to my fellow ambienteers ...

                            I made a little update to Delay8 that adds some additional input options (L+R, mid, side) and improves the usability of selecting the main inputs and tap routings for the delay lines. New version is v1.4 Update is available on the Delay8 page here: http://tonecarver.wordpress.com/delay8/

                            One of these days I'll have to get back to music making :daydream: ... (ear problems, ugh).

                            Have fun.

                              Thanks, this looks great! Recently gone back to Windows and have been discovering all the amazing freebies I've missed out on.
