If you have some cash to spare, than get these two Dub Machines plugins! Forget the rest… Modnetic delivers creative & unique echoes by emulating a classic tape delay and introducing saturation, convolution reverb and amp modelling with analog-based modulation. You can use it very practical or go all out and get esoteric. Diffuse is a diffusion delay modeled on machines from the 1970s and 1980s. You can effortlessly morph from delays to reverbs and even crazy special effects. Diffuse is geared to be modulated live with its streamlined GUI.
This fairly new VST from Native Instruments is a dead simple to use delay plugin and has a resonant filter and classic phaser built in. Best thing is, that Replika is a very versatile delay vst and can be used to create anything from subtle slapback to warped sheets of noise.
One of my personal favourites until I discovered Dub Machines. EchoBoy wraps decades of echo device history and new forward-thinking features into one versatile effect that will find its way into every corner of your mixes.
Bizzare Delay is a free VST effect that features a digital stereo delay unit as well as a saturating tape delay. Producers have the ability to switch between each unit for each of the possible delay types, including; Ping Pong & Multitap with LP & HP filters, Pan, Wet/Dry & LFOs. The plug-in allows complete fine tuning to get the exact delay desired.
