Iconic stage, studio, and creative delays
ready to explore in your DAW.

With the huge number of plug-ins available today, it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why the team at Arturia wanted to make things a bit simpler.

We have recreated two of the most famous hardware analog delays ever made, and developed our own powerful, versatile digital to give you the best echo processing available. That way, you can spend more time making music, and less time trying out lots of different effects trying to find the sound you like. .

Let’s make music.

We studied their components, from the tape to the circuits, we modelled the response of the tape heads, we brought the best elements of famous hardware delays into the software world.

The resulting plug-ins are simple to use, inspiring to experiment with, and sound absolutely amazing.

All 3 Delays You'll Actually Use are superb. The Memory Brigade my current favourite, the stereo offset and width options make lead vocals sound gigantic without dominating the mix. A go-to delay for me without question. These really ARE 3 Delays You'll Actually Use.

Sweet Presets

If you want to fire through a few preset sounds to get the ball rolling, each effect comes with a great mix of functional and creative patches.

The presets found within each of the delays are crafted with the same knowledge and passion as the core sounds of our award-winning software instruments. Our team of sound designers have made it easy for you to pull up a great effect, and start tweaking to make it your own.

Modern Tweaks

Recreating hardware gear as software lets us unleash its true potential, unrestricted by hardware constraints.

The delays in this collection let you easily experiment with things that would have been impossible on the original units. Custom tape head setups, expanded BBD “memory”, and advanced modulation abilities give these effects new appeal, and make them “must haves” for the modern producer.
