Sandman is far more than just a delay plugin; it’s a wormhole to the dreamtime states of your sounds. It’s a deceptively simple gateway to a microcosm of sonic dimensions bordering the absurd. It’s a new way to extract loops and grains from a sound that can be as close to or as far flung from the original, as you like. From the input of just a single sample, Sandman opens a Pandora’s box of endless sonic possibilities. At first glance, Sandman offers the most basic parameters found on a delay plugin – host synch-able Delay Time and ping-pong feedback, along with a wet/dry mix and a filter for good measure. Use these standard features for flanging, comb filtering, or adding string-like texture to percussive sounds. The Sample Rate parameter can add vintage grime or completely decimate a sound by directly lowering the sample rate of the DSP engine; an adjacent Dirt switch gives you the loving character of a lo-fi recording.
•Unique ‘Sleep’ function creates locked loops by freezing delay buffer, allowing the Start and End time to be manipulated by up to 100%
•Sample Rate parameter directly controls the time-frequency domain of the sample, slowing or re-pitching the sound
•Dual LFOs allow bipolar modulation of nearly every parameter
•‘Dirt’ switch for some gritty vintage goodness
•Ping Pong mode for stereo effects
•Wet/Dry mix for parallel processing
•Granulate or reverse loops, then mangle or morph them into a completely different sound
•Add fluttery spring echo or silky ambience with time, feedback, and filter controls in mono or stereo
•Create interesting warps and warbles for sound design or live performance
•Wide-ranging delay times, from 5ms to 5s; get up to 8min by adjusting the Sample Rate!
