Delays are really hard to get around. You see all that bilion dollars toys from big companies ... and can't stop yourself from thinking: Hey, does it REALLY needs that huge prices? I mean, it's just repeating for god's sake... Somtimes with some saturtaion or nonlinearity, but come on, just repeating!
For that purpose you have pretty good plugs in your DAW already and there is plenty of free ones. Problem with those is, that they are made either in SynthEdit, or coloration isn't nice, or it lacks some feature, or it's pain to operate. I know what you expect me to write right now: NastyDLA is exception and has none of those drawbacks! ...aaaand nope. It actually falls down to "lacks a feature" category. But rest of the delay is so awesome you won't need some payware stuff for a long time I swear.
It may look like I've got a little VOS obsession, but it's not that true. For example I'm not much fan of Epicverb. But this delay is absolute spot on. Normally you'd have one ping pong, one double mono, one tape delay plugin and so on. NastyDLA has one huge heavy knob and you can select any of those modes LIKE A BOSS! :)
It also features really cool processing of the feedback route. Really nice coloration. VOS's Tessla and Ferric are top of the freeware saturators, so you can expect this coloration is sweat. (But watch out to not overuse it. You don't hear saturated echoes in nature, do you?) Also chorus and modulation of the feedback signal. LP and HP filters that I think every delay should have. (!!!!!) Internal ducking. (!!!!!) Even adjustable background noise. Hard to imagine it more versatile than that.
Aaand the sound! If you go too much crazy you end up too oldschool, but when saturating and modulating gently, it sounds great, really bright and ... "positive", can't describe it properly, but it sounds cool.
Now what's the missing feature? Reverse! This is HUGE delay powerhouse. It's really sad it has no reversing. I'd be absolute killer with it. I mean ... there has to be some buffers inside that could be read backwards. :)
I know, I'm repeating myself, but I really wanted to give this baby a 10! Really did! ...but It's so close to perfection i need to give it a 9 and hope it punch VOS a bit to adding that function. :p
Anyway, download it! It's a order! er! er! er! r! r! r! r! r!
