FabFilter - TimeLess 3 Review and Demo - vintage-sounding tape delay, reverb and echo.
This is another great plugin by FabFilter and it sounds great. The effects are great and the modulation options are the best part. really enjoying creating new soundscapes with few clicks. If you did deep and start modulate the filter and pitch you can get some creative sounds and that's the magic.
I am shocked beyond belief this plugin does not have a review yet. This has to be one of the most dynamic and capable delay plugins out there. However, because of it's depth and modulation capabilities I find it a bit overwhelming myself at times and often reach for simpler, straight forward bread and butter delays.
Like I have already mentioned, my only qualm with this plugin is the fact that it is so deep, I feel like because of it's depth I am often lured off into new directions, rarely ending up with something as basic as I desired.
Presets: Okay, I am a preset lover cause I love saving time and getting a quick, close approximation of what I am looking for, however I feel the presets in this Delay are good if not great, but I am ANNOYED how the presets upon initially opening this thing are so wildly out of this world and complicated. I wish they would have started with the basic stuff first and then build the complexity up over time/while searching through them.
All in all, I really think this could nearly be your be all, end all delay unit if you take the time to really understand it.
I believe that all FabFilter plugins are an amazing value... this is no exception.
My last and major gripe is CPU usage. At about 5%-7% CPU use on a Core 2 Duo 2ghz machine, it really takes a bite out of creativity as the song/project progresses. I imagine the new i7 wouldn't notice it, but currently I consider that quite high.
