In today music production world, it’s not easy to release something new and interesting because many DAW includes already a massive amount of cool free plugins. D16 Group announced today a worthwhile new multitap sequenced delay plugin for PC and Mac that enables the control over each of the 16 delay lines with own independent set of parameters. Sounds very experimental and maybe I will check it out for you in the near future.
What sets it apart from other, similar products, is the way it’s controlled and the unique topology into which the taps are arranged: The Delay Matrix. In fact, Tekuron can’t be thought of as a tap-delay effect in the strictest sense, but more of a sequence of taps equally delayed from each other, whereby working with the plugin strongly resembles using a step sequencer.
Each of the 16 delay lines has its own independent set of parameters providing complete control over:
- Delay loop
- Stereo spread
- Post-tap multi-mode filter.
Plus, several additional functions affecting whole plug-in; optional tempo sync, tap and swing effect. Tekturon also provides the ability to control some aspects of the processing globally (adjusting parameters of all 16 delay lines at once) or locally (individually per delay line).
Furthermore, all audio parameters are automatable and MIDI-assignable making Tekturon a great tool for live performance situations. Especially the quick-access mute buttons, which are conveniently placed, always accessible for selectively suppressing individual delay lines.
The Tekturon is scheduled for official release on May 15th, 2017. The price will be 69€/$69 USD /£59 GBP incl. taxes if applicable. Tekturon will be part of the SilverLine Collection package.
