Delay Lama makes your computer sound and look like a singing Tibetan monk. Delay Lama is the first software synthesizer that features both vocal synthesis and a real-time 3D animated interface, which dynamically reacts to musical gestures from the user.
To control the pitch and vowel sound (ooh-ow-ah-ayh-eeh), either a MIDI keyboard with pitchbender, or the built-in XY-controller can be used. For an extra mystical effect, Delay Lama has a simple stereo delay.

Like most everyone else, I can't imagine ever actually using this in a recording, but it's still worth a download just for the laugh. Every once in awhile if I'm bored/frustrated/whatever, I'll pull this up and go ooh-ow-ah-ayh-eeh ooh-ow-ah-ayh-eeh ooh-ow-ah-ayh-eeh a few times and I'll feel better. :) And really, the vocal emulation is still better than a lot of "serious" synths I've used. I'd love to see these guys do some synth dedicated to serious vocal simulations (choirs etc).Read more

The use of just a few changeable parameters and one built-in effect give this synth its unique quality. Having more than one way to control the parameters is cool, too. You can adjust the knobs or just drag on the X-Y type field.
I consider it to have the best user interface of any VSTi I've ever used. That little monk never fails to make me smile. :)
I'm surprised that AudioNerdz hasn't tried to use this same simple concept with a few different sounding synths. I think that would be very interesting.
Lastly, it may just be me, but I HAVE used this plug in one of my tunes! DL now for a good time!
Features, Presets, and Support are not really big issues. I didn't care about/need them and neither will you.Read more
