Tube Delay

Delay by Softube

Sound on sound 120
Tube Delay produces a very usable and musically solid sound - the delay also sounds very 'real' when used in conjunction with the Spring Reverb plug-in."

"The manufacturer has really succeeded in the combination of tube-preamp, tape-delay and equalizing in a virtual but absolutely realistic way."
Gitarre & Bass. The best-selling musician magazine in German-speaking! Made with pride since 1986!

A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modeled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slap backs, or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.

A slightly dark and distorted delay has a way of giving a great sense of space and size to a mix without really drawing attention to itself. So that's where our Tube Delay gets in the picture.

The controls are quite self explanatory, but it's the sound that sets Tube Delay apart from any other delay you have tried. The drive knobs add a wonderfully dirty distorsion and the tone controls are just sweet. There's actually three different tube stages in this model, each adding to the total sound. The tone controls are passive and add further to the distortion. Turn up the feedback while running, and you'll have the authentic dub echo madness! We of course added the possibility of tempo syncing the delay to your song.
