Brief Introduction To Delay Effect

Brief Introduction To Delay Effect

The delay effect is widely used in electronic music and lot of other genres as well. It’s a great way to add depth, density or an ethereal quality to synth lines, pads, vocals or any other sound really.

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 a simple delay can affect the sound. The FX unit in this tutorial video is Fruity Delay 2, one of the easiest and handiest digital delay units.

    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!
