While large echoing cavernous chambers seldom are the first pick for a good acoustic space, Delay effects have been ubiquitous in sound processing for a long time.

The kHs Delay can be run both free running and tempo synced with various stereo and feedback options. Most notable however is the duck feature, which optionally only lets the echoed sound through when there is no dry input signal. This allows for long and heavy delay while still avoiding clutter over the original sound. Clever!

Delay is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

Product details

The Delay will delay the input signal for an echoing effect.

  • Delay - The amount of time beore the delayed sound starts playing. This will be expressed in milliseconds or as parts of a beat, depending on the Unit setting.
  • Unit - When Unit is set to 'Sync' the delay time will be synchronized to the song tempo.
  • Feedback - The feedback setting will cause the delayed sound to feed back into the delay. This will create an exponentially decaying echo.
  • Duck - When duck is turned up, the output volume from the delay will automatically be lowered when the input volume is high.
  • Pan - Adjust the panning of the delayed sound.
  • Ping-Pong - Swaps the left and the right channel of the delayed sound when it is fed back into the delay. When combined with panning this will make the echo bounce back and forth between the speakers.
  • Mix - The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

The Kilohearts Toolbox

Delay is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.

The Kilohearts Toolbox devices all do one thing each, and they do it well. The philosophy behind this is to give our customers access to the building blocks of sound design and from there you can combine them into really interesting effects. In fact, many more esoteric RE:s are basically a few of these effects combined.

If you own a few, or all the Kilohearts Toolbox devices be sure to check out Kilohearts Toolbox Refill, a big pack of diverse combinators exploring the possibilities of the toolbox.

Usability standards

Kilohearts aim to provide Reason users with a wide range of audio effects that all utilize a common form language and interaction model. This allows for a great user experience that is really valuable when working with with big projects.

Stack 'em up!

We have taken a lot of care to make all Kilohearts Toolbox devices as lightweight as possible. This way you can combine many, many effects without taking up too much screen space, or CPU.
