Eventide has released the DDL-500, a new digital delay for the 500 series racks.
The DDL-500 features 10 seconds of pristine delay at a 192 kHz sample rate and a unique design that strictly limits the amount of digital circuitry to the bare minimum. Soft saturation clipping, low pass filter, feedback, insert loop, relay bypass, and +20 dB boost are all analog.
“500 series is, by and large, analog and we thought long and hard about introducing a digital product to that world. Our mantra was “as analog as possible,’ said RM.
“The DDL-500s digital circuitry was kept to a minimum – just the chips necessary for delay. All of the other sound-shaping features are implemented in the analog domain. The design goal was to create a digital delay with an analog soul.”
