Native Instruments have introduced Replika XT — a creative multi-mode delay. The five deeply modeled delay modes span crisp digital repeats, analog warmth, and experimental textures. Additionally, seven effects and advanced options allow producer’s to add depth and width to their mixes with refined control. The plug-in is aimed at producer’s who need an easy-to-use, all-in-one studio delay for echoes, special effects, and production tricks. Replika XT is available at the NI Online Shop. Registered owners of the original Replika qualify for special upgrade pricing.
Replika XT was inspired by some of the most revered delays in history. The plug-in features five delay modes, each with its own distinct character. According to NI, Modern provides clean, precise, controllable repeats. Meanwhile, Vintage Digital offers warm, repeats modeled after early samplers and digital delays. Analog replicates the sound of analogue bucket-brigade pedals, say makers. Tape provides the punchy, smooth sound of classic tape echo units. Finally, Diffusion Mode provides swirling reverberant echoes unlike any physical space, it is claimed.
Replika XT features a clear interface that is designed to make even complex effects fast and easy to create. Pattern controls allow producers to create rhythmic repeats that shift organically with the music. Panning for each delay line as well as the dry signal allows a custom stereo image. The ducking feature keeps percussive hits tight while still adding space to a drum mix.
Replika XT is available now at the NI Online Shop for $99/€99/£89. Registered owners of Replika qualify for special upgrade pricing on Replika XT, available from the NI Online Shop.
