Description : ValhallaDelay – a classic and modern system of delay and echo.
Tape delay, BBD, old-school digital, pitch shifting – all in one plugin. ValhallaDelay offers classics and expands them to new dimensions with unique Ratio and Quad delay styles, Ghost mode (which adds frequency shift) and a powerful diffusion section that can create anything from blurry echoes to broadcast reverbs.
ValhallaDelay has seven unique delay modes (Tape, HiFi, BBD, Digital, Ghost, Pitch, RevPitch) and five delay styles (Single, Dual, Ratio, PingPong, Quad). By combining modes and styles, you can get classic tape echoes, Bucket Brigade-style delays, old-school digital delays, pitch doublers, reversed delays, elusive chorus … the list goes on and on.
We spent a lot of time modeling vintage hardware delays, but we did not stop there.
A lot of thought has been given to ValhallaDelay controls. The graphical interface has all the necessary controls for such a universal delay, while leaving only the necessary controls, so the interface is fast and easy to use. All controls are on one screen – no hidden tabs or menus. The goal is to create a tool that you can quickly learn to get the sounds you need and do your job!
ValhallaDelay has seven different delay Modes :
• Tape: Modeled after vintage tape echoes, with all the features and quirks that were loved in the old hardware.
• HiFi: A higher fidelity tape echo, where the ability to precisely sculpt the sound is in your hands.
• BBD: A dark, low fidelity bucket brigade delay model.
• Digital: A cleaner, higher bandwidth delay, with the ability to dial in digital dirt.
• Ghost: A Valhalla DSP original! Combines the tape model from the HiFi mode with frequency shifting and a unique diffusion algorithm, for sounds that will split your skull in two.
• Pitch: A digital delay with added pitch shifting. Perfect for micro-shifting vocals, adding harmonies to synths, creating vast shimmering soundscapes, or shrieking sounds that forever spiral upwards or downwards.
• RevPitch: Reverse pitch shifting! Everything that goes in, comes out reversed.
Five tape Styles, for controlling the number of delay voices :
• Single: Same delay length & modulation for left and right channels.
• Dual: Independent delay lengths for left and right channels.
• Ratio: The right channel is set to a ratio of the left channel, and the feedback of left and right channels is mixed. Perfect for sounds that slowly transition from delay to reverb-esque.
• PingPong: A delay that bounces between the left and right channels, with the ability to set the left and right delays independently.
• Quad: Models the multi-head tape echoes of the 1960s and 1970s, with up to 4 delay taps on tap.
Cool features :
• Delay lengths ranging from 0 msec to 20 seconds. Dial in choruses and flangers, slapback echoes, longer delays, or long Frippertronic loops.
• Sync the delay to the beat, with straight / dotted / triplet options. Or, control the length via milliseconds.
• Age control, for adjusting the artifacts of the delay mode. Clean and shiny, old and dusty, or anywhere in between.
• Powerful Diffusion section, that can be used to smooth out the attacks of delays, or can be an amazingly smooth and lush reverb in its own right. Up to 20 seconds of diffusion time possible!
• Era control, for selecting between different variants of the delay modes.
