Valhalla DSP Releases ValhallaDelay

After 3 years of work, it’s finally here: ValhallaDelay.

ValhallaDelay GUI

ValhallaDelay is a comprehensive delay plugin, for AU/VST/AAX on OSX and Windows. ValhallaDelay has been designed from the ground up to emulate classic tape, BBD, digital and pitch delays, while expanding their sonic capabilities.

ValhallaDelay has seven unique delay Modes (Tape, HiFi, BBD, Digital, Ghost, Pitch, RevPitch) and five delay Styles (Single, Dual, Ratio, PingPong, Quad). By combining the Modes and Styles, you can get classic multi-head tape echoes, dark bucket brigade delays, old-school digital delays, pitch doublers, reverse delays, screaming feedback, subtle choruses…the list can go on and on.

We spent a ton of time modeling vintage hardware delays, but we didn’t stop there.

  • ValhallaDelay adds a comprehensive Diffusion section, so any delay Mode can be transformed into a smeared delay, or a massive reverb.
  • The Age and Era controls are used to dial in the right amount of mojo, so you can have bright, sparkly delays or crusty old noisy echoes.
  • The Drive control is a quick way of dialing in subtle warmth, crunchy repeats, or screeching feedback echoes.
  • The delay range has been extended from <1 msec all the way to 20 seconds, so ValhallaDelay can get short flanging sounds all the way to massive looping delays.

A lot of thought went into the ValhallaDelay controls. The GUI has all the controls you need for a versatile delay, while leaving out unneeded controls, so that the interface is quick and easy to use. All controls are on a single screen – no hidden tabs or menus. The goal is to create a tool that you can learn quickly, so that you can get the sounds you want and get your work done!

We have lived and breathed delay algorithms for a long time now, and we are excited to finally release ValhallaDelay into the wild. Thanks for checking it out!
