Don’t delay, delay today!

DDLY Dynamic Delay is a one­of­a­kind effects plug­in that combines the responsiveness of dynamic signal processing with a top­shelf delay. With DDLY, keep it clean or make it wild — whichever feels right for you. Play with the controls, adjust the knobs, split it across different dynamics, and DDLY reacts dynamically in real­time to the performances in your music.

DDLY accentuates and lifts your dynamics, delaying the signal differently depending on the character of the sound, and it won’t turn your track to aural mud. Get a cleaner, more complex sound than a traditional full­signal delay plug­in!

DDLY on drums
On a drum track, try setting DDLY to only add echo to the harder attacks of the kick and snare. You’ll get that cool, echo effect without adding delay to the extra buzz from the snares or the room noise or a sloppy high hat that would make the mix sound muddy or crowded. Or dial in different delay patterns for the transients and the more constant energy of the performance, to keep the foundation in place and let the accents and flourishes bloom and soar.

DDLY on vocals
DDLY works great on vocals, too! Emphasize the full range of the vocal take with a subtle delay on the verse and a more intense delay on the bigger moments of the chorus. Instead of laborious studio setup with multiple mics and complex routing, DDLY lets you dial in unique performance­based delay effects quickly. No more canned, inflexible delay!

DDLY is not for the timid. The echoing wail of DDLY can ring and rattle and twist your insides. Yes, it can be extreme. Yes, it can go too far. But sometimes, too far is exactly how far you need to go. Push DDLY to the limits and see what you get. Make insane sounds, get complex delays, discover new horrors, and just try to get out alive.

DDLY on whatever you imagine
Any source with a strong dynamic range and expressiveness is a great candidate for DDLY, to build upon the dynamics rather than compress them. Try it on guitars to add delay and echo to only the loudest parts of a performance and not touch the more intimate moments. Try it on piano or synth tracks. Automate the delay over the course of your whole mix, to get intense on some sections and dial it back in others. Run wild! Be free!


  • Dynamics­driven effect:
    DDLY analyzes the dynamics of the incoming material to determine what to push to the delay and what to keep clean. Adjust the intensity to drive more or less performance­based delay.
  • Two delays in one:
    Separate how the signal is sent to two different delays and process the louder transients differently than the more subtle performance elements — great for a dynamic delay on the harder crack of your drums and a shuffling delay on the main beat elements.
  • Customize your delay:
    Create tight slapback, bouncing delay effects, or symphonically larger amounts of repetitive delay. Both delay paths can use either analog delay or pitch delay to selectively produce subtle and very musical results or total craziness.
  • Responsive interface:
    The interface of DDLY reacts to the material it’s applied to to give unique real­time visual feedback. As the knobs come to life, your sound gets cooler. Go ahead, get ‘em all going!
  • Automatable:
    DDLY can be set up with automation in your audio host, to engage the dynamic delay on your mix when you want it to and back off when you need the raw material to shine.
