When most engineers get asked about their go-to time-based plugins, more often than not, their priority allegiance will be with a company other than Valhalla DSP. However, over the past few years, the company has proved itself to be a strong, yet underrated contender among its competitors. With an impressive library under its belt of now eight plugins to choose from, and two free ones (FreqEcho, Space Modulator), which you may already have installed right now, Valhalla DSP have definitely built up a strong foundation which everyone should be made aware of.The most recent addition to the library, however, just may be the most impressive to date — and its name is ValhallaDelay.
If you’ve seen Valhalla DSP’s other plugins, you’ll immediately recognize ValhallaDelay’s design. It offers a very simple 2D interface with plain colors, and easy to understand circles with number indicators underneath for fine-tuning settings. The ValhallaDelay comes with a library of presets to choose from, and offers a whopping seven different delay modes to choose from: Tape, Hi-Fi, BBD, Digital, Ghost, Pitch, and Reverse Pitch. Additionally, users can fine tune delays even more specific to the left & right channels, adding color or EQ to the delay signal, or even adjusting its pitch by a +/- 2-octave range. Certainly a handful of features that you can’t find with just any plugin.
With its full deck of features, abilities, presets, and a signature charming look that only ValHalla DSP software can provide, this is sure to be a plugin that engineers will quickly fall in love with. Of course, the best part is that it’s extremely affordable as well. In fact, you can go and purchase ValHallaDelay for yourself at a price of just $50 into your wallet — the same price you’d give for any other paid plugin from Valhalla DSP. Go act fast, and have fun with this one.
