Vox Samples Releases FREE Time Turtle Delay Plugin


Vox Samples has released Time Turtle, a free delay plugin for Windows and Mac (64-bit only).

If you’ve somehow been struggling to find a delay, then this might be a welcome addition. Delay plugins are one thing I don’t have a shortage of by any means.

The old plugin folder is swelling with delays and reverbs, some of which often go unused for months at a time. That said, Time Turtle is a perfectly fine little delay if you don’t have other options.

Time Turtle is the latest free release from Vox Samples. It features the same cute animal on the interface and minimal control set as previous plugins.

You aren’t going to be using this to recreate something vintage like a Binson Echorec, Space Echo, or Lexicon 42. It does what it does, which is provide some delay to your material.

Control options are kept simple, with a time and feedback knob serving as the main points of focus for your audio.

Time can be tempo-synced, which is fairly standard stuff. Feedback functions as you’d expect, with more of the delays being heard the higher it goes.

You can coax it into screeching self-oscillation, but I don’t know that most folks will. Under the feedback knob, you’ll find a ping-pong switch which does what might expect.

Time Turtle features a pair of filters for further sculpting out the signal. These sound gentle to my ears, and they do their job just fine. The plugin is rounded off with a mix knob, which is pretty much a must for any modern delay plugin.

Now, if you’re like me, I don’t really see this making a huge splash. The interface is cute, but it takes a lot to steer me away from Timeless 3 or Other Desert Cities.

I could see this being a fun dalliance for users who are still stuck with their stock plugin suite. That said, you might have a better alternative to this already in your DAW.

Time Turtle is available for Windows and Mac computers per Vox Samples’ official site. You’ll need a host capable of using VST3 or AU plugins to install it. If anything, it is worth a short exploration.

  1. Plugin Boutique is offering a bundle of plugins and samples for $29. One of the plugins is Melda’s MTurboDelay, which usually sells for $200. It has “39 completely different delay designs inspired by both analog and digital worlds”. I got it a few days ago and makes most of the delay VSTs I’ve got stuffed on my PC redundant.

    • Tempting… Mainly because MTurboDealay and Uni Channel. Don’t care much about the rest of the stuff in the bundle (not that they’re bad or SMTH). OTOH, I’ve just finished uninstalling a bunch of (mostly commercial) plugs that I don’t use or need. Dammit :)

    • A bit weird, but I think had MTurboDelay been sold by itself at $29 I think it would have sold like hotcakes.

      But because it is bundled up in a deal, that is what is holding us back, we start to drag our feet: “I already got that” plug and “I don’t need that” sample pack :-D

      • Very true. I think I would go for MTurboDelay without thinking at $29 if it wasn’t bundled with a bunch of stuff I may or may not need. I know I don’t have to install any of them, but still… :) Anyways, that made take a moment to think if I needed another delay and I decided I didn’t, ATM.

  2. Not worth a post BPB.
    In days when we have the free amazing DEELAY and quite a few others, why mention this obvious low quality stuff, just to get a page of content out? Quality please :D
    Maybe update some of your old best free vst plugins pages, some of them are really outdated.
    I know free doesn’t bring you commission, but it brings you traffic ;)

  3. I really appreciate you posting these types of plugins/developers. If you’ve never made VSTs before, you don’t know how incredibly difficult it is. Then getting people to test it from a variety of backgrounds and really put the plugin through the ringer so that you can make the plugin better and learn how to get things smooth. After getting the basics down it becomes easier to make more complex plugins – many of which we now enjoy for free or cheaper than ever thought possible. From the looks of it, this is from a sample creator who is stepping into plugin development. Big step. I wish him/her the best.
