Default Delay Plug-Ins

Following on from a discussion in another thread, what is everybody's favourite delay plug-ins?

We were discussing Audio Damage Dubstation which is a great price and a fantastic sounding product.

Sureno decided he preferred it to Echoboy after a brief comparison.

I personally love the following (in no order):

UAD Space Echo
Audio Damage Dubstation
Guitar Rig - the Space Echo emulation on this is very good, as are a lot of them, especially the Memory Man

Besides the above, which are generally teetering towards Space Echo emulations, I love Audio Damage Richochet, PSP delays, and the delays in Izotope Trash, though I don't always have access to all of them at any one time!

I'm PC, by the way, so sorry for the seeming bias, but I don't own a Mac.

Tube Delay by Softube
I use this bad boy. The delay is excellent, and the saturation feature is incredible. Sometimes i use it just on kick drum, with the mix knob on 0% delay, and just saturate it a bit and eq in some of the bass, and cut the treble. Then I stick the emi limiter after and WHAM. Instant 60s style kick!

It also is a great slapback echo when its driven pretty hard... or not.

Con's? No make up gain. That can be a bit of a pain, but thank god for Live's utility plugin!

I'll say it again: I LOVE Softube stuff.

Cheers, Dan

I love the look of it - aesthetically pleasing to say the least. If it sounds as good as it looks, I'll have to buy some. Well priced as well.

I guess the amount of effort gone into the GUI reflects the amount of effort gone into the product to a certain degree. Like a decent label on a bottle of wine.

How are their amp sims?

It's good to see all these individual plugs coming in at around the 30-50 mark. I think that's very reasonable.

Echoboy and Digidesign Reel Tape Delay in use here (because I can't afford/justify the Blue Coconuty/Unity audio unit!)

I don't actually own all of those listed, incidentally, for anyone that saw my list and thought I lived in a gold castle adorned with racks of boutique equipment and the finest in plugs.

Apart from Dubstation, Guitar Rig and PSP Delay - I've been fortunate enough to have been granted access to the rest, via friends' studios.

The missus wouldn't let me get a UAD card, being as we have a new baby. I didn't dare even breach the subject during pregnancy or she'd have assaulted me with my laptop.

I've often feared returning from work to find my Telecaster on a bonfire in the garden after suggesting new purchases.

it was echoboy by soundtoys but now its dubstation from audio damage all day long, and even though i don't use it much delay designer in logic shouldn't be overlooked

Vintage amp room is my secret weapon. They are the best out there if thats the kind of sound you want. Trust me, get the demo and you'll be hooked. They also developed the abbey road brilliance pack which is truly awesome as well. I'm not so hot on the spring reverb- i demoed it, but I've always got a real spring reverb from my Roland re 501 on an aux - and nothing can compete with that. Metal amp room is not really my bag.

The problem with spring reverb in the digital realm is on things that have sharp transients. They work fine on vox, but really hype the 'springyness' more than a good spring will. Between the hardware spring, Softube delay, an actal tape machine, altiverb and CSR - I'm sorted forever.

I really like the Sonitus delay plug but have been having a very serious look at Audio Damage Ricochet especially after seeing this video

It looks like one can get very creative results very easily.

I tried the demo and really like it ill buy it once ive bought other bits ive got my eye on (Lennardigital sylengh & Abbeyroad mastering pack AU versions) , Softtube Tube delay price tag of $99 is great its a tad shame they slip a 25% VAT charge on the price when you reach the checkout for us europeans bumping it up to $123

After buying the Abbeyroad Brilliance pack and the Tube-tech CL1B i also can say "I LOVE SOFTUBE"

Ohmboyz is a bit of a classic plug, great sound and a lot of features in there, like individual LFOs for most parameters and a nice n dirty filter for the delayed signals.

Spektral Delay is also one I keep coming back to

And as mentioned previously, Audio Damage Dubstation (they do loads of wicked little plugs), and the PSP delays give smooth results, but they're let down a bit by trying to copy hardware interfaces too much. A problem I've seen with a lot of their stuff actually. Nitro is well fiddly!

Excellent... I've got all the abbey road stuff as well. The brilliance pack is so good at sweetening clean plucked guitars. And the compressors are beautiful. I'm just waiting for the mastering pack to be released this month and then i'll have the lot! You should definately try out amp room if you are a guitarist! I'm hoping they develop something for bass too.

Anyways, back on topic!
