Applied Acoustics Systems is best-known for their beautiful physical modelling plugins (Chromaphone 2…) but today they entered in a new product range. The company released Objeq Delay, a new creative delay plugin for PC and Mac. I had the chance to check out this very special delay plugin at the NAMM show this year and I can say: it’s very special and not a usual delay plugin. With Objeq Delay, you can create very special physical modelling delay sounds which are not possible with standard delays. Watch here my Objeq Delay coverage from NAMM 2017.
Objeq Delay is a creative effect plug-in combining acoustic filtering with a clever delay unit. The plate, beam, drumhead, and string objects impart evocative acoustic resonances to the input signal. Further shaping is also available via low- and high-cut filters. The in-series delay acts as a classic unit or can split the first and subsequent repeats to either remodel the attack or create complex rhythmic patterns. A LFO module completes the package with comprehensive modulation destinations to the filter, resonator, and delay parameters.
”Objeq delay is a truly creative and fun effect with multifaceted applications,” said Eric Thibeault, the product’s designer, “Objeq Delay is obviously a great delay unit, but the complete feature set takes it to another level. The acoustic resonator is a great percussion track enhancer—it’s fantastic on kicks and snares. The split between the first and subsequent echoes can mangle simple loops into new complex rhythms. The LFO allows various modulator-type effects such as flanger and chorus. And then when you bring it all together, a highly resonant object with the delay brings you into the drones territory.”
Objeq Delay is now available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX). It is on sale for $99 USD until May 15th, 2017, with a regular retail price of $139 USD.
