Brief Introduction To Delay Effect


Brief Introduction To Delay Effect

Delay effect is widely used in electronic music and lot of other genres as well. It’s a great way to add dense or ethereal quality to synthlines, pads, vocals or whatever sounds. I use delay a lot  in my own productions to add that extra atmosphere to otherwise dull sounds.

Here’s a quick introduction on how simple delay effect affects to the sound. The effect unit in this tutorial video is Fruity Delay 2, one of the easiest and handiest delay effect there is.

@ Jon W
your ears got it exactly right!
Sound is a stage, and you use Panning Left and Right to create width…
To create depth, (front of stage to back of stage) you use delay and reverb…
A slapping delay tricks the ears into thinking the sound came from behind the vocalist standing at the front!
