Stereo Delay

The Stereo Delay works much like the Tape Delay (see

Tape Delay

), but allows you to set

the Delay, Feedback, and Mix parameters separately for the left and right channels. The
Crossfeed knob for each stereo side determines the feedback intensity or the level at
which each signal is routed to the opposite stereo side. You can freely use the Stereo
Delay on mono channels when you want to create independent delays for the two stereo

As the parameters for the left and right delays are identical, the descriptions below only
cover the left channel—the right channel information is provided in brackets, if named
differently. Parameters that are common to both channels are shown separately.

Channel Parameters

Left (Right) Input pop-up menu: Choose the input signal for the two stereo sides. Options

include OFF, Left, Right, L + R, L − R.

Left (Right) Delay field: Sets the current delay time in milliseconds (this parameter is

dimmed when you synchronize the delay time to the project tempo).

Groove slider and field: Determines the proximity of every second delay repeat to the

absolute grid position—in other words, how close every second delay repeat is.

Note buttons: Set the grid resolution for the delay time. These are shown as note

durations (these are dimmed when the delay time is not synchronized with the project

Left (Right) Feedback knob and field: Set the amount of feedback for the left and right

delay signals.

Crossfeed Left to Right (Crossfeed Right to Left) knob and field: Transfer the feedback signal

of the left channel to the right channel, and vice versa.

Feedback Phase button: Use to invert the phase of the corresponding channel’s feedback


Crossfeed Phase button: Use to invert the phase of the crossfed feedback signals.

Common Parameters

Beat Sync button: Synchronizes delay repeats to the project tempo, including tempo


Output Mix (Left and Right) sliders and fields: Independently control the left and right

channel signals.

Low Cut and High Cut sliders and fields: Frequencies below the Low Cut value and above

the High Cut value are filtered out of the source signal.
