DDLY Dynamic Delay can be used to create increasing rhythmic variations on a stereo drum loop. Both acoustic and electric drums make excellent fodder for DDLY, thanks to the adjustable Dynamic Threshold. Transients passing above the Dynamic Threshold are routed to the Top Delay, while the underlying non-transient audio is routed to the Bottom Delay.
This means that you can add delay to the harder attacks of the kick and snare that exceed the Dynamic Threshold. You’ll get that cool, echo effect without also adding delay to the extra buzz from the snares or the room noise or a low transient, sloppy high hat that would make the mix sound muddy or crowded.
Or dial in different delay patterns for the transients versus the more constant energy of the overall performance, to keep the foundation in place and let the accents bloom and soar. With DDLY Dynamic Delay, you can easily move from common rhythmic delay patterns to exploring some advanced granular delay effects.
