The Delay effect is one of the oldest effects to be used on recordings, and there are many different types and ways to apply it. Multi-Platinum mixer / producer extraordinaire Kenny Gioia returns with a “must have” series for anyone recording, mixing, engineering or producing music. See how delay can be used to make tracks bigger, wider and just cooler! Learn the important fundamentals and advanced techniques of delay, and you’ll find yourself using delay smarter and more creatively.
Kenny starts off with a tutorial on the history of Delay, so you know exactly what it is and where it originated from. Next, he gets into “Automatic Double Tracking” (ADT), then “Chorus Delay”, “Flange Delay” and “Rhythmic Delay” to create delay lines that take on a life of their own. Kenny then studies the famous “Slapback Delay” sound and shows you how to dial it in just right.
Moving on, Kenny reveals ways to setup and automate “Musically Timed Delay”, as well as make “Dynamic Delays” that fill only empty spaces! “Filtered and Distorted Delays” are next on the list, and Kenny demonstrates awesome ways to sculpt your delayed sound, as well as pan them interestingly. Wrapping up the series, Kenny goes over a boatload of “3rd Party Delay Plug-ins”, discussing their strengths, and then finishes the series with a tutorial on “Putting It All Together” on a track.
If you record, mix, engineer or produce music, Delay is definitely a “go to first” effect. Hang out with Kenny as he shows you the ins and outs of Delay and how to apply it to your tracks. Your music will be worth repeating!
