What are you using for slap back delay on vox?

Post by alexis »

I haven't been able to get happy with ModMachine for that, it sounds quite metallic and phasy on voice, so much so that I went looking for alternatives. This is with all the ancillary processing (Drive, width, etc.) turned to zero. Using the HPF helps, but just a bit for me. Used as a send effect.

It's a shame because all those other controls look like they could be very nice.

I poked around the presets on Magneto 2, but didn't see a preset for that ... Anyone know if that tape machine does tape delay, or is it only for saturation?

Currently I'm using a doubling plug-in with just a touch of timing modulation, then eqng the output. Sounds clean and great, but it's far from the 1-step solution I was hoping to get from ModMachine.

Well the silver lining for me is I learned that a non-tempo synced delay can sound just fine!

What are you guys using for vocal delays?

UAD RE-201.

You could try Karlette, that used to be pretty good for a nice rolled off delay. I think it's still available in the legacy plugins folder??

64-bit too! Thanks for the link. I gotta few more things to troubleshoot with ModMachine first, I have a feeling it might not be playing well with the EMT 140 I set up immediately afterwards.

If I can't get rid of the metallic sound, maybe I'll head there!

Or if you want it hardware, I recently bought a Behringer VM1 which is a 'modern' vintage Echoboy clone that actually sounds great. On gearslutz most people preferred the VM1 in a blind comparison to a real Echoboy :)
And it's very cheap!

edit: sorry, VM1 is a memory man clone, not echoboy. Doesn't matter, it can do slapback ;)
Software: Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 64-bit.
Hardware: Intel i5 6600, 16Gb DDR3, Win7 64-bit

My humble contributions to what could be considered music.

Hi - thanks for all the tips!

I did try to look for the Kjaerhus site to read about it and maybe download, but http://www.kvraudio.com/developer/kjaerhus-audio says ... "no products currently available". Though there are a bunch of 3rd party sites that allow download of Kjaerhus plug-ins, I'm hesitant to allow downloads from those sites I don't know much about (concerned about "extra goodies" getting downloaded too).

Does anyone know where the Kjaerhus url is?

Thanks -
Alexis

I'm sure he gave up and disappeared! i'm sure i read this on either gearsluts or the UA forums...
I'm pretty sure they were only available in 32Bit form too although they did bridge quite well as far as i remember...
