This is a very very good simplistical style delay/echoer, which in todays uber advanced world of modern day delay technologies that can be a bit exacerbated as for serviceability, usefulness applicatory wse, can be a great thing. In essence, sometimes it's just to much with all the ms devs trying to out better one anothers delay plugin simply put. But Rhythm delay is, & does exactly what it says in name. It's extremely "Rhytmical" in the way the algorithm portrays it's imagining. Can be used on practically anything, but from a few years experienced owning the plugin i woud say it's best suited for drums which is a good thing bkz many delays don't exactly work effeciently well on drums a lot of times from my endeavors at least. But RD is good bkz it's (clean) & has a very good 'start/stop" engine if u will under the hood. Very easy to dial in for unique drum textures that improve your over all dream imaging presentationally in the track. Again, it's very clean, but is very "Mathmatical" in it's feature controls that are very finite with control of "Speeds". It's also so simple bkz u just highlight what ever individual boxes that all have different (per note ratios i.e 1/4, 1/8th) etc, which u can then do "combination" box/note matching for randomized results and so forth. I like to use it on a whole drum pattern set, or even more effectively on each drum sound in the set, leaving some element "dry" while adding Rhythm delay to other element drum sounds in the set adds a "professional" sheen, texture to the full sound of the drum, giving them an "Album" feel to them. Rhythm Delay is very powerful, and simple at the same time, if not over thought, and used sparing, or in some cases aggressively, you'd be suprised what RD does bkz it is exact, but has the ability to get chaotic lol, but the base is to be a clean delay that u can still add other effects with on the drums with out it becoming a big stereo imaging battle for space. RD has a "free, or synced" with very deep "Micro seconded" delay speed value control. ALso has a (smoothing), & or preence knob that allows you to kind of offset, place the effect within the drum imagining sound plate. In summary, it doesn't have the "Reverb & or Chorused" added features of a more advanced delay efx plugin, no "Pitch shifting" & exotic filtiers ahah, and THAT is what gives it it's advantage & additional value, usefulness etc. Sometimes you just want a delay that's simple, clean, exact, & gives you strong repetitive algorithmic motion consistent of a drummers timing rhythm if u will, so it's (natural) almost human like rhythmic response, woven in with tight per note scaling, minus the special fx. I use this delay in almost every beat session bkz i can use it to "glue" my creative idea production wise together more easily when adding Rhythm Dela to a particular instrument, Drums, or to fill in empty spots, & that don't feature a sound, or texture that may leave the beat feeling bland, abandoned, or naked. RD "Blends" that empty air space in the creative space between the ideas you are coming up with while producing. It makes idea's formulate more accurately. This is a very UNDER RATED delay plugin, & for everything it's not, or may at first glance turn people off is exactly why, & what makes it's so great!! It's one of those "u just have to use/try it" to know how potent, useful great in application it is. It also boast a very "warm", & analog sounding echoes algorithm, low CPU as well. so it's most def a "Tool" that is not only nice to have, but necessary bkz it covers a lot of creative ground unintentianally which is what makes it powerful. 10/10 if i could rate it that high lol. I love plugins that u can actually use creatively in all the times, in any given situation & they always produce pleasing, unexpected results, that's what RD does. It makes sounds, drums, instruments etc "fit", blend sonically where otherwise they may not have seemed to have worked well with out RD being added to help imbellish the sonic texture plate.

Sorry guys. I'm removing two stars. This VST is very good and can be a life saver when going surgical on some complex sounds. But it is very hungry for CPU, like the Kotelnikov.

It cost me only 14.00, because I bought it on sale. You get what you pay, so It's a great alternative for who seek a good acoustic sound on a budget. I think you can use it for many styles, you only have to be creative.

Equator is one of the best and well-supported MPE synths out there. The presets are thoughtfully put together, which is one of the most important features of any MPE compatible plugin because it separates synths that support. The UI is well laid out and helpful for someone not necessarily familiar with MPE conceptually. I have been using it with both my Sensel Morph and Linnstrument controllers. It's fun because both hardware controllers implement the spec properly and that simplifies the experience. It's a bit pricey, but if you want to enjoy true MPE it's a great way to go.

Cool synthesizer, I like it, a leader among competitors. I think that this monster will be very popular, and manufacturers will support it.

Recent xpand2 update (Xpand!2_2.2.7.21000) is broken.

After installation, no sound is coming out in Reaper, Waveform11 and Ableton Live...

Just like the other recent update attemps: DB-33_1.2.7.21000, MiniGrand_1.2.7.21000 and Velvet_2.0.7.21000.

I have been using Air Music plugins for a long time but lately all updates have issues...

UPDATE: After uninstalling and clearing windows registry, re-installed and the plugin now makes sound !

Fun and simple to use once you wrap your around the sort of goofy names. It's nice to have a tool that isn't overly and needlessly complicated. You just slap it on and dial it in and get on with the next task. No need to overthink it or get bogged down in choice paralysis.

KVR had a 55 dollar price tag, the lowest others had did not go below 75. I have used KVR before, and the price made a big difference. Why pay 20-50 dollars more? Other than that, the product was as advertised no matter where you get it.

It's an excellent, great-sounding product. it is really very easy to use. and it's free!!! It has the necessary controls so that the saturation works in bass, normal and treble. For very it is a must-have plugin.

Anche molti parametri per introdurre nel sound dettagli "analogici".

Non faccio musica elettronica ma hard rock, e apparentemente poteva sembrare inutile per quello che faccio, ma il mio intuito mi ha guidato, e devo dire che ci ha azzeccato in pieno.

Aggiunge profondità e "aria" con un click.
