VescoFX releases Haas Delay
VescoFX has announced the release of Haas Delay, a delay effect plug-in for Windows.
This delay effect can bring more natural sounding stereo effects to your mix (or push it over the top for uniquely unnatural effects). Haas delay will allow your tracks to have solid spatial positioning information by increasing the spatial cues in a more natural sounding way than panning or phasing methods.
You can also use Haas to increase the size of your tracks by giving them a large stereo spread while simultaneously opening up the center of your mix for other instruments. Put it on a couple guitar tracks for a huge rhythm sound. Put it on a lead vocal track to emulate a doubling effect (similar to classic ADT processing). Use it to enhance a keyboard or piano track but is having trouble shining in a dense mix. Use it on just about anything to get that unique pro studio sheen.
You will find a Haas style delay effect on just about every popular recording in the last twenty-five years. This is your chance to bring this special effect to your mix without complex routing schemes and extra mixing steps.
