Said to be perfect for modern electronic music production, this five-tap delay comes at a bargain price
Audio Damage has an enviable reputation for releasing great-sounding, great-looking and inventive effects at fantastic prices. It’s now looking to strengthen its position with the launch of Ricochet, a multi-tap delay plug-in.
Said to be quicker and easier to program than some of its rivals, Ricochet comes with a 16-step programming grid and five independently controllable taps. You have multi-mode filter, pan, level, sync, mute, solo and time controls for each of these.
Ricochet comes with two feedback modes (master and tap) while there’s a specially designed chorus that only affects the taps. This is said to be suitable for feedback smearing effects.
Available now for $49, Ricochet runs as a PC VST plug-in and a Mac Audio Units effect. You can buy it – and hear what it can do – at the Audio Damage website.
