Radio Delay is essentially a hybrid of a dual-mono BPM-style delay, but with the delayed signals running through the Valve Radio distortion filter. This produces cool, dual-filtered echo effects that sound like they are coming from distorted old speakers or radios. Another cool trick with this delay is that it can be “de-synced” from the host’s tempo and set to a completely different tempo, so that the delays don’t always have that “perfect” sound to them. A useful and interesting effect!

MINI-SLIDER
Controls the mix of the dry signal and the processed (Wet) signal. The percentage indicated is the amount of the signal that is Wet.
Range: 0 ~ 100%

PAGE ONE CONTROLS

  • [FILTERS] HPF
    Controls the cutoff frequency for the high-pass filter.
    Range: 20 ~ 10000 Hz
  • [FILTERS] LPF
    Controls the cutoff frequency for the low-pass filter.
    Range: 100 ~ 22000 Hz
  • [FILTERS] Q
    Controls the resonance of the cutoff frequency of the filters in the delayed signal.
    Range: 0 ~ 1
  • [DELAYS] LEFT
    Drop-down menu that allows you to choose the time value of the delayed audio.
    Choices: 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/96, 1/1dot, 1/2dot, 1/4dot, 1/8dot, 1/16dot, 1/1triplet, 1/2triplet, 1/4triplet, 1/8triplet, 1/16triplet
  • [DELAYS] TEMPO
    Controls the speed of the delays from host Sync to any independent tempo setting.
    Range: SYNC, 42.30 ~ 500 BPM
  • [DELAYS] RIGHT
    Drop-down menu that allows you to choose the time value of the delayed audio.
    Choices: 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/96, 1/1dot, 1/2dot, 1/4dot, 1/8dot, 1/16dot, 1/1triplet, 1/2triplet, 1/4triplet, 1/8triplet, 1/16triplet
  • FEEDBACK
    Feeds the delay signal back to the input for echo repeats.
    Range: 0 ~ 100%

PAGE TWO CONTROLS

  • FEEDBACK LOOP
    Inserts the Overdrive and Tone Filter into the Feedback Loop. This is useful for producing echoes that get darker with each successive repeat, and also for creating infinite dub-style echo feedback.

CAUTION: Turning this switch ON can produce extremely loud and powerful howling feedback signals which can damage your ears and your speakers – so watch out!

  • DRIVE
    Controls the amount of overdrive distortion in the delayed signal.
    Range: 0 ~ 1
  • WIDTH
    Controls the stereo width of the delay and dry signal.
    Range: 0 ~ 100%
  • GAIN
    Adjusts the overall output.
    Range: 0db ~ 12db
