Hi there. Messing around with this a whole bunch today so thought I might treat you to a quick review...
PROS: You can do relatively long delay times, there's a lot of tame plugs out there that won't let you go as long and slow as you want to. The GUI looks good, nice big knobs. When you switch between BPM host and free time (ms) modes, the units of measurement change but the actual time remains the same (makes life faster if you're going for slightly off delays!). Also the "analog tape delay sound" is probably the smoothest I've come across. You know what I mean - the pitch shifts if you change the delay time while it's working. In this way it's a good tool for live jams and feedback loops. The filters are good too, better than most. There's a "mod" function which applies an LFO to the pitch of the delay.
CONS: The ping pong is not a dual stereo ping pong. It just splits the stereo into left and right. Ok, this may be the norm but what's so good about the norm? Why not embrace the deluxe? You also get a couple of "analog" options and a "lofi" switch. This is nice but it's mostly very subtle and if it was up to me I would have tucked these options in some out of the way menu.
VERDICT: H-delay does the basics really well and it doesn't waste your time with a lot of frills you'll almost never use. But there's still room for improvement...Read more
