Matthieu Brucher has announced the availability of ATK Stereo Universal Delay, a free stereo delay plugin for Windows and Mac operating systems.
This is an amazing free delay plugin with a quite simple and intuitive interface. Tweaks go on two independent stereo channels, left and right, each with typical controls such as delay amount and blend, but also feedforward and feedback controls with 8 combinations of the signal sent from left to right and vice-versa. These knobs act like a panning for the feedforward and feedback delays, allowing you to sculpt in detail the stereo delay image.
With ATK Stereo Universal Delay you can create cool ping-pong delay effects, simple delays, but also insane realistic sound design. For example, I have made an impact shot, something like a bullet ricochet off the wall.
There would not be an exact application for this plugin, keep in mind that once you dig it, you will be amazed by its sonic capabilities. That being said, ATK Stereo Universal Delay for me is a keeper and the I think it really deserves the “universal” from its name.
Depending on your operating system, you can opt for VST versions for Windows (32-bit & 64-bit) and Mac OSX (universal). Windows users, you might receive a warning during install, but just ignore it, the file is 100% safe.
