Adam Monroe Music releases
free Adam Monroe's Delay 14th
Adam Monroe Music has released
Adam Monroe’s Delay, a free effect plugin
that simulates delays from the simple slapback to
the bubbly and experimental.
Adam Monroe's Delay is a free VST
AAX and AU effect plugin for Windows and OS X. There
are many free and commercial delay effect plugins,
but I wanted to make my own unique delay.
Interesting features of this plugin include:
*ping-pong panning that is synced to
the delay time, so that each delay sounds like an
echo sweeping from left to right.
* built in high and low pass filtering, so that the
frequency of the delay can be filtered, well leaving
the original dry signal intact.
* mix, panning, and panning-width controls.
The end goal was to make a highly
parameterized delay plugin that could emulate some
of the classic delay sounds like slapback, as well
as create new and interesting effects, and package
them in a comprehensive preset list and GUI, that
the end user could easily navigate.
The development of this plugin was
restricted to the delay effect itself. Early on, the
idea of a "time stretching" delay effect you might
find on some digital and analog delay pedals as you
change the delay time - for example, the rimshots on
the Bauhaus song "Bella Lugosi's Dead" - was toyed
with, but due to developmental restraints was
ommitted from the final version of the plugin.
Future versions of this plugin might include this
Perhaps the most interesting feature
of this plugin is the option to set the high pass
and low pass filters to linear or exponential.
Setting to exponential creates interesting effects
like hisses and clicks, as the filtering folds-back
on the delay buffer. This effect works best at 44.1
kHz, but many sample rates are supported.
