PSPaudioware has announced PSP 608 MultiDelay (Mac/Win, $149; $389 bundled with Lexicon PSP 42; PSP 84, and PSP Nitro), an 8-tap multimode delay processor available in Audio Units, VST, DirectX, RTAS, and HTDM plug-in formats.
Each delay tap has selectable feedback and controls for stereo image and position, delay time, multimode filter, modulation, drive/tape saturation, and reverb. The feedback and drive effects can be placed at the beginning or end of the signal chain.
PSP 608 MultiDelay gives you 8 seconds of delay time per channel, with continuous control over the delay time in milliseconds or as a selectable note value. The plug-in, which can be automated using MIDI, supports 24-bit, 192 kHz audio. The modulation section includes an LFO and envelope follower, and the tape saturation algorithm is taken from the company's mastering processors. A modulation depth of ± 3 octaves is available, and it can be assigned to filter cutoff.
There are two modes of operation: Multidelay, in which each tap has its own feedback buffer; and Multitap, in which the Master Feedback operates on one user selectable tap. For each tap, you can independently adjust gain, stereo width and balance, delay time, filtering, modulation, saturation simulation, and reverberation. The filter types for each tap include lowpass, bandpass, highpass, peak, and four shelving. The "vintage" reverb module simulates spring and plate reverbs. The tape saturation simulation has adjustable gain based on the algorithm used in the PSPAudioware mastering processors.
