Acuma Labs President Chris Jubien stated "Our new Mackie D8B plug-in, dubbed 'Delay Factor,' combines the sound of righteously funky old tape delays with the newest digital delay technology and features."
Mackie software chief Bob Tudor commented on the new plug-in, stating "The Delay Factor combines a full feature stereo multi-tap delay with up to 16 taps, with the dynamic performance features of a traditional tape delay. It takes advantage of the D8B automation and graphical user interface to represent the Delay Field, an intuitive picture of each delay tap in time (more than a second per side) and space (anywhere in the L/R pan)." Editing the Delay Field is as easy as "drag and drop" using the graphical interface. Any change can be captured by our automation engine and played back perfectly.
Global parameters include: Quantization and Time Scaling, allowing users to globally adjust delays and taps to beat intervals. Pitch and Speed parameters control the dynamic performance of the delay and are even easier to use than the original Echoplex-style tape delays. Stereo input level controls for the delay lines are included.
Per Delay Tap parameters include level and pan controls for both output and regeneration from either delay line. High and low pass filters provide unique sonic qualities for each delay tap and can be customized.
