Modnetic offers comprehensive emulation of classic analog tape delay hardware from the 1970's. In fact Modnetic gives you four powerful effects in one: delay, reverb, modulation and tone. No mere slavish analog emulation, Modnetic also has a few digital twists...

Key Features:

■ An Echo section with three combinable virtual tape heads, ​ two different reverse delay effects (impossible using real tape) and a hold mode which emulates repeatedly reading and writing the same audio to tape.

■ A Reverb​ section with 35 carefully crafted impulse responses.

■ A Modulation section featuring chorus, ​ flanger and phaser effects, including analog models inspired by BBDs (Bucket Brigade Devices), clean digital effects and special sonically 'broken' flavours.

■ Four vintage machine 'characters​' that affect the tonal and sonic qualities of the delay and modulation effects, with a character dial that controls the strength of the selected machine.

■ Comprehensive routing options for blending the three effects in unique and creative ways.

I did not get Modnetic for the vintage emulation so its just a bonus, for me it was the clean shimmer and neat routing you could do, so i you are into creative delays/reverbs this might be the only plugin you will ever need! Only plugins that comes to mind comparing are polaris by Audiority(My goto for shimmer) NI Raum(for creativ mandess) and D16 Spacerek(for clean tails), Modnetic does everything those can still comes out at top.

It sounds great, looks great, packed till the brim with features. The sound designer in me gets all tingling sensation from all ideas this plugin gives me, and the results I get with are just outstanding. I love setting the wet to 100, then bounce the stuff and resample it as a stabs or put it into a sampler.

A very impressive emulation of classic spring reverbs and space echo delays. Lots of tweak-ability. Perfect for Dub and Reggae. Highly recommended.

This, along with Replika XT, is my favorite character delay. Gives me instant lo-fi (but musical) grunge. A very "dubby" feel, IMO.

(Don't let the modern interface fool you, modnetic has a strong vintage character.)
