Creating Taps in Delay Designer

You can create new delay taps in three different ways: by using the Tap pads, by creating
them in the Identification bar, or by copying existing taps.

To create taps with the Tap pad


Click the upper pad (Start).

Note: Whenever you click the Start pad, it automatically erases all existing taps. Given
this behavior, after you have created your initial taps, you will want to create subsequent
taps by clicking in the Identification bar.

The upper pad label changes to Tap, and a red tap recording bar appears in the strip
below the view buttons.


Click the Tap button to begin recording new taps.


Click the Tap button to create new taps. These are created at the exact moments in time
of each click, adopting the rhythm of your click pattern.


To finish creating taps, click the Last Tap button.

This adds the final tap, ending tap recording, and assigning the last tap as the feedback
(for an explanation of the feedback tap, see

Using Delay Designer’s Master Section


Note: If you do not click the Last Tap button, tap recording automatically stops after
10 seconds or when the 26th tap is created, whichever comes first.
