Cambridge, MA (February 9, 2015)—iZotope is introducing its new DDLY Dynamic Delay plug-in by giving it away through March 10, 2016. The plug-in reacts to a track's musical dynamics to create experimental delays.
Intended for drums, vocals, synths, guitars, and other dynamic sources, DDLY combines analog and granular delay with responsiveness to incoming audio. On a drum track, for example, users can add echo to only the harder attacks of the kick and snare. For vocals, subtle delays can appear on calmer verses and more intense delays during the big moments of a chorus.
Acting as two delays in one, DDLY analyzes audio based on an adjustable threshold to determine what to send to the top delay and what to send to the bottom delay. Adjust the Intensity to affect how strongly the signal is split between the two. Both delays have two modes to choose from—Analog or Grain. Analog produces warm lo-fi delays with smearing and nostalgic degradation, while Grain produces melodic, symphonic and futuristic sounds, according to the company.
Responsive interface: The interface of DDLY Dynamic Delay reacts to the material on which it's applied to give unique, real-time visual feedback. As the knobs come to life, the sound gets more compelling.
DDLY Dynamic Delay is offered free of charge through March 10, 2016 (Limit one, non-transferrable copy per customer during this period); after that, DDLY Dynamic Delay will be offered for $49 USD.
