Little Spacey

Little Spacey is delay effect, inspired by classic analogue 'bucket brigade' delays but with refinements only possible in the digital arena - not to mention a maximum delay time that would cost a small fortune to realise in hardware.

Great care has been taken to give Little Spacey the smooth, creamy sound which makes analogue delays still popular today.

In common with the best analogue delays Little Spacey allows you to modulate the delay time for chorus or vibrato effects. Unlike most analogue delays, Little Spacey is not restricted to mono operation, and works well in stereo or multi-channel (AU only) settings, offering variation of the effect between the channels for particularly rich and involving sounds.

A free demo and user manual can be downloaded from the Expert Sleepers site. The plug-in includes a number of presets (described in the manual) which show off the range of possibilities that the plug-in offers.

Hello,

I am attempting to replicate a certain Tangerine Dream sequenced synth sound that I am told uses BBD delay. Is there anyone who can tell me how BBD delay is different than a typical tape delay software plugin?

Thanks.

A bucket brigade delay (or BBD) is a type of device rather than the name of a particular one.

Here is a link to a description:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucket-brigade_device.

Being an analog device the fidelity of the signal degraded especially with longer delay times.

and multiple repeats. They were also limited in frequency response and could be a bit noisy.

(at least in the real world :-) ), but sounded less clinical than the digital delays which followed.

I hope this is helpful.

BBDs can also add analog aliasing to the delay line, just an interesting little tidbit since I always associate aliasing with digital. Essentially a BBD is a sort of analog sampler that holds a short amount of audio in a huge line of components (capacitors, transistors, something or other) with each one passing it onto the next until it reaches an output.
