A versatile multiband delay plugin with intuitive visual display controls, that offers up to six bands of separation. Each band is provided with the following delay functionality:
- Custom or fractional delay from 2 bars to 1/64. Fractional delays can be synced to the tempo changes of a track by using the SYNC function.
- Note, dotted or triplet echo variations on fractional delays.
- Ping pong delay which alternates between the left and right channels based on delay
- Tempo synchronisation which will adjust delay values to suit changing tempo
- Ducking which includes threshhold, ratio, attack and release controls, to create delay swells and avoid cluttering the original audio.
- Smoothing to adjust the change in delay time
- LFO modulation to add some wobble to the delay times. The frequency can be selected up to 100Hz and the amount of modulation can be varied between 0% and 100%
- Delay dry/wet mix amount can be adjusted between 0% and 100%
- Output gain can be adjust to increase or decrease the output of the selected band
Furthermore, the plugin has a number of presets. These can be used as starting points to craft your own echo creations.
Moreover, AB comparison functionality is included allowing different settings to be compared to find the perfect delay combination.
Each band can be soloed or deactivated. Additionally, the frequency bands can be adjusted in the visual display. The output gain can also be adjusted in the visual display. The A-B functionality can be used to compare and select desired settings. A good selection of presets are provided as a starting point.
MECHO-MULTI User Guide
This is a guide on how to use the Multiband Delay plugin – a delay plugin with up to six frequency bands.
Add/remove frequency bands by hovering over the top of the visual display until a ‘+’ button appears. Click on this button at the desired crossover location. A band can be removed by clicking on the ‘x’ button on the crossover that appears before the band to be removed.
Adjust the delay by using the delay knob. Or select a fractional delay amount using the drop down to the left of these buttons. A factor between 1/64 and 2 can be selected. In fractional mode, a note, dotted or triplet based delay can be selected by choosing one f the ‘N’, ‘D’ or ‘T’ buttons. The feedback know can be used to adjust the amount of echo feedback.
Activate Ducking by clicking on the ‘ON’ button in the DUCKING controls. The threshhold, ratio, attack and release controls can be used to adjust the ducking to taste. The ducking mechnism is based on a noise gate that uses the dry audio and then applies the gating in reverse to the delayed audio.
The ‘PING PONG’ button can be selected to alternate the delay output between the left and right channels at each delay interval.
The ‘SYNC’ btton will engage a tempo synchronisation which will adjust the delay amount acordingly when tempo changes. This mode can only be used while not using a fractional delay time. Use the fractional delay drop down to enable this option.
Use the LFO Modulation frequency and percentage knobs to add delay time modulation. This will add a varying delay time to create some interesting effects.
The smoothing knob allow the rate of smoothing to be adjusted. This is particularly useful to smooth the delay changes in ‘SYNC’ mode.
Use the DRY/WET knob to adjust the amount of delayed signal that will occur in the ou
