DDLY Dynamic Delay excels at adding rhythmic complexity to guitar tracks through the use of two different timed delays. When looking to add rhythmic motion to a piece, or to simply add a stronger groove to an otherwise more minimal guitar part, multiple delays synced to tempo are a great asset!

Here, the top delay is adding dotted eighth note delays to the more transient parts of the guitar, while the bottom delay is adding a straight quarter note delay to the more sustained part of the signal. Then you can easily morph between the two groove feels by adjusting the Threshold slider.
