Plugin Boutique has introduced a new effect plugin modeled after the Zen Delay hardware unit by Erica Synths. A collaboration with Ninja Tune and VCV code wizard Raphael Hoffman, Zen Delay Virtual is a powerful effects plugin with extreme possibilities and playability.

ZDV is not simply a digital replica or replacement of the (admittedly universally acclaimed) original hardware, but an addition to it. Like its metal boxed voodoo tube progenitor, ZDV is about opening up the joy of playing, experimenting, mutating and mashing sounds.

Zen Delay Virtual features

  • New LFO page breathes surprising rhythmic animation to life, controlling Filter and Delay, with FM and AM controls to add further dank modulation scope.
  • Preset manager helps to save your own effect settings. Comes with a selection of killer presets from our talented team of mutant sound smiths such as Mijk van Dijk, Nerk from Toktok, Dr Walker of Air Liquide and others.
  • Brand new groove timings of the various triplets and dotted delay times.
  • Possibility to change the routing between the delay and filter stages, even inserting the filter within the feedback loop.

Available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3, AU and standalone formats, Zen Delay Virtual is on sale for the intro price of $109 USD / 99 EUR until February 28th, 2023.
