eaReckon has announced EARebound, a delay effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
EARebound is a full featured multi-delay plug-in (VST/AU 32/64bit) featuring 15 delay lines (“taps” or “steps”) + an extra global delay.
This plug-in provides an intuitive workflow. If you ever played with a vintage drum machine, you should master it in no time!
Each line (including the incoming signal) can be processed by its own set of effects (7 types of saturation, high and low cut filters, a quad modulation unit, … per line!). By sculpting each taps, you will then have the possibility to create rythmic lines from any sound material or enhance existing one. Of course, EARebound is also suitable in any situation where a solid delay unit is needed!

Boscomac has announced the release of Bouncing Ball, a delay effect ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
BOUNCING BALL is a stereo delay that bounces like a ball. One can act on the bounce in different ways: by choosing the number of rebound, gravity which will influence their behavior, their decay like a fade in / out, their color by applying a filter (lowpass / highpass) and the time between bounces (synchronized to the tempo or not). To better visualize the action of the delay, the central display shows real time all changes.
The ensemble is a free download, donations are welcome.
