Delay Plug-in

Valhalla Delay

With seven different flavours of echo on tap, this is one seriously versatile delay plug-in.

Over the last few years, Sean Costello has quietly built up an enviable reputation for his Valhalla DSP range of plug-ins. In products such as Valhalla Plate, Room and VintageVerb, he's managed to capture what people love about the sound of different vintage reverbs, without slavishly emulating the look or functionality of any specific hardware unit. Valhalla DSP plug-ins thus boast refreshingly clean and friendly interfaces that are free from ersatz VU meters and brushed metal; and they sound like the real deal if used within the original parameters, but will cheerfully go beyond them if you like. Oh, and did I mention that they are seriously affordable?

The latest addition to his stable is also, probably, the most ambitious to date. Valhalla Delay doesn't just mimic one particular type of classic delay unit: it has no fewer than seven different modes, including some that have no counterpart in the vintage world.
