Initial Audio has announced the availability of its new Dynamic Delay audio plugin, a dynamic delay effect that has an internal side chain which ducks the loudness of the generated delays.

Once the input audio goes below the threshold the delays can be heard clearly. This is a trick many professional producers use, but takes time to set up in your signal chain and usually requires a separate side chain compressor. Dynamic Delay brings this technique into one easy to use plugin saving time and money.

Side chaining is a very useful mixing technique, allowing sounds to punch through the mix while making others more silent. Dynamic Delay is particularly good on vocals allowing the vocal to really shine through and not compete for space with the delayed vocal. The silence between the vocal can be filled with a nice delay, leaving the original vocal clean and unaffected by the delay.

Dynamic Delay features

  • Dynamic Delay: Set the threshold at the level you want to start hearing the delays.
  • High quality effects: Lowcut, Highcut, Detune, Reverb and Distortion.
  • Stereo delay: Set different rates and feedback amounts for left and right channels.
  • High definition resizable GUI.

Dynamic Delay is on sale for the intro price of $24 USD for a limited time (regular $79 USD). It comes in VST and AU plugin formats.
