ValhallaDelay has been designed from the ground up to emulate classic tape, BBD, digital and pitch delays, while expanding their sonic capabilities.
ValhallaDelay has seven unique delay Modes (Tape, HiFi, BBD, Digital, Ghost, Pitch, RevPitch) and five delay Styles (Single, Dual, Ratio, PingPong, Quad). By combining the Modes and Styles, you can get classic multi-head tape echoes, dark bucket brigade delays, old-school digital delays, pitch doublers, reverse delays, screaming feedback, subtle choruses, etc.
A lot of thought went into the ValhallaDelay controls. The GUI has all the controls you need for a versatile delay, while leaving out unneeded controls, so that the interface is quick and easy to use. All controls are on a single screen – no hidden tabs or menus. The goal is to create a tool that you can learn quickly, so that you can get the sounds you want and get your work done.
