SoundToys, purveyors of top plug-ins and some of the nicest people on the planet, have some new goodies they are showing at AES 2014.
PrimalTap Retro Delay
Based on the vintage Prime Time delay unit PrimalTap is a dual digital delay with;
- VCO modulation,
- multiple feedback modes,
- two very unique features from the classic hardware. The “Multiply” control, originally created to make the most of limited RAM memory, doubles the delay time with each click of the knob. It also reduces the sample rate, creating long lo-fi delays, and unusual pitch jumps while switching between the four settings.
- The “Repeat Hold” button loops the entire delay buffer, and everything that’s stuck in it. Once the sound is “held”, you can continue to warp, modulate and pitch-change to create bizarre audio landscapes. These two controls really are “must-hear” features.
PrimalTap will be available individually, and included in Soundtoys 5, featuring the full line of Soundtoys plug-ins and the new Soundtoys Effects Rack. Upgrades from Little Upgrades from Little PrimalTap will also be available.
