Last week to celebrate their 15th birthday iZotope re-released an old classic, Vinyl, with a new feature and compatible with more plugin formats. This week, they have another special giveaway for us: DDLY.
Until March 10th you can pick up the new iZotope delay plg-in DDLY for free (normally $49.00). In their words, iZotope describe DDLY as “a one-of-a-kind effects plug-in that delays the signal differently depending on the character of the sound, without turning your track to aural mud. Adjust the threshold to split your signal based on transients, then send it down two separate analog or granular delay paths.
Get a cleaner, more complex sound than a traditional full-signal delay plug-in with DDLY!”
In short it’s a delay plug-in that creates interesting delays based upon the track’s musical dynamics. One irregularity with DDLY is you're not able to save presets inside the plug-in. We don't know why this is, but it means iZotope provide some cool DDLY recal sheets as PDFs.
This is an awesomely creative and functional audio plug-in. There’s absolutely no reason on earth you shouldn't download this now…. So, don’t delay, grab it now! (excuse the pun!)
Here are some super short videos showing how DDLY in various mixing situations.
