Beat Magazine offers the Analog Delay (retail price $19) plugin by PreSonus as a FREE download until June 30th, 2022.
Analog Delay is a creative delay plugin with a vintage sound character. It was free for a limited time in November 2021, and you can now get it for free once again via Beat Magazine’s online portal called Plugs & Samples.
To get your free copy of Analog Delay, register a Plugs & Samples user account (or log in to your existing account) to receive a coupon code. You can use this coupon to claim your free license via PreSonus. However, you’ll need to hurry up because the free download offer expires on June 30th.
Taking a closer look at the interface, Analog Delay offers all the basic delay effect parameters and some additional controls to make it sound more retro.
For example, you can use the Factor and Inertia controls in the Motor section to simulate the mechanical inconsistencies of hardware analog delay. Similarly, the Drive and Filter controls in the Color section will help you emulate the lo-fi sound of vintage delays.
PreSonus also included an LFO section with four modulation shapes, a Width section with stereo width and channel swapping controls, and the Delay section where you’ll find the sync and timing controls. You can adjust the dry/wet mix in the Global section.
Analog Delay is an easy-to-use delay plugin that can deliver just the right amount of retro character to your project. If you want to add some colorful delays and echoes to your mix, definitely give this one a try.
