HZ Delay is a character effect which means that it doesn’t do all things equally. It deliberately does some things oddly or not at all to allow it to have the sort of character so sought after in older analog gear.

The sorts of effects or outcomes HZ Delay will help you to achieve are:

  • Saturation
  • Chorus – simple and BBD
  • Echo – simple and multi-tap
  • Reverb – simple early reflections

The idea is that commonly you will be balancing some or all of the above as you use HZ Delay to add depth & sparkle to any (or all) of the sounds in your mix. Maybe not the Masters but where there is a will, there is a way.

The user interface for HZ Delay is split into several parts:

  • The top with the VU meter is where general tone and levels for the whole effect are handled.
  • The section below is where each of the three echo sections are set up.

Signal flow

It is worth understanding the signal flow as not everything moves in a straight line all the time.
