Sonic Anomaly has announced the release of Leet Delay 2, a freeware delay effect in VST plugin format for PC and JSFX plugin format for PC/Mac-based digital audio workstations.
Leet Delay 2 is a “character” delay effect, meaning that adds a certain amount of color and saturation to the processed signal. The plugin can work in “free” delay time mode (0-4000ms) or sync to the host application’s tempo. It also features resonance, color and color mix controls, a feedbacks slider and dry/wet controls. Ping-pong mode is also supported.
The user interface is simple and well laid-out. It was designed by Crimson Merry, the graphic designer who developed our free BPB Cassette Drums plugin bundle and who is also responsible for several other amazing GUI designs on the Sonic Anomaly website.
Speaking of which, Sonic Anomaly has been well-known as a Reaper-only plugin developer for quite some time now. Fortunately, most of their plugins are now also available in VST plugin format (Windows only at the moment), turning their website into somewhat of a goldmine.
The plugins seem to be updated on a regular basis with new GUI designs and performance improvements. I’m yet to put them through a proper test in my DAW, but there are definitely a few releases that look absolutely jaw-dropping. For example, the QuadraCom dynamics processor seems like it could be a proper go-to freeware mastering tool and S.LA.X looks like a very promising LA-2A emulation.
I’ll definitely keep a close eye on Sonic Anomaly’s future releases and probably include some of their plugins in our VST plugin directory after testing them. Let me know if you have any experience with these plugins in the comments section below.
Leet Delay 2 is available for free download via Sonic Anomaly (992 KB download size, ZIP archive, 32-bit & 64-bit VST plugin format for Windows).
