Variety Of Sound announces NastyDLA

Variety Of Sound has announced NastyDLA, a free chorus/echo effect plug-in for Windows.

There are just a few audio effects available that are capable of instantly turning a small and wimpy riff into something big and meaningful. One of them is the classic chorus/echo combination. Beside the individual classic echo or chorus devices these combined devices were historically build around true tape or bucket brigade delays.

From today’s production standards perspective they might be easily overseen (feature wise) but on the other hand they are still pretty much demanded due to their specific and warm tone and this unique sound quality is probably the charm which still today attracts producers and audio engineers to use them in their actual music productions.

NastyDLA is going to follow this path and recreates all the specific tone qualities while adding just some few but well selected modern features.

NastyDLA features

  • Classic chorus and echo effects.
  • Authentic signal path coloration.
  • Tape-delay style feedback and saturation.

NastyDLA is coming this autumn, as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
