Complementing the recent SSL X-Echo, Solid State Logic has announced the release of its latest creatively focused plugin.

X-Delay is inspired by legendary and iconic hardware delay units from the ’80s.

Producers and music creators will appreciate the various combination of sounds achievable from up to 4 independently sync-able taps: from saturated slapback vocal delays, to vast stereo soundscapes appropriate for lush synth pads and more. The SSL X-Delay is augmented by global FX such as built-in modulation, SSL’s signature analogue saturation, and a reverb offering multiple diffusion effects and rooms from a single control.

The new X-Delay is the latest entry in SSL’s expanding Plug-In bundle, which is available by subscription on its new eStore. Combined with its sibling X-Echo, SSL X-Delay helps users cover the spectrum between vintage tape and vintage digital delay sounds. By tweaking its powerful modulation, saturation, diffusion and de-essing settings, X-Delay is capable of moving between stark, crisp delays and darker, dirtier soundscapes and of course the huge delay sounds of the ‘80s.

X-Delay features

  • 4 configurable delay taps, including independent level, ping-pong and panning controls.
  • Combine SSL-style saturation, modulation, reverb and de-essing to shape an endless variation of different delay sounds.
  • Create out-of-control soundscapes by driving the feedback beyond 100%, and use freeze and kill to build risers and drops.
  • Get the perfect mix-ready delay using the high and low pass filters, mid/side width and mix controls.

The SSL X-Delay plugin for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is available at the Solid State Logic store and from distributor Plugin Boutique, priced $199 USD.
