Fantastic glitchy delays and swarming metallic drones
"Objeq Delay is very unique effect that imposes acoustic resonances as well as dual delays to the signal in real time, which opens a lot of sonic possibilities. I've been using it on different percussion sources and loops. It creates fantastic glitchy delays and swarming metallic drones, which can all be automated or modulated with the built-in LFO. It's already getting used on all of my sound design sessions."
— Richard Devine
Objeq Delay is a completely new and unique creative effect plug-in that only AAS could dream up. It combines acoustic models, with a sophisticated delay unit, analog filters and an LFO, to create a whole new category of effects processing. Objeq Delay utilizes acoustic models of a plate, beam, drumhead, and string objects to suffuse the input signal with evocative acoustic resonances. Further shaping is available via low and high-cut filters. The in-series delay can behave like a traditional delay, but it can also split the first and subsequent repeats to remodel the attack, or create intricate rhythmic patterns. An LFO module completes the package with comprehensive synth-like modulation destinations to the filter, resonator, and delay parameters.
Hear what the community has to say about Objeq Delay:
"Transporting classic effects to previously unheard worlds."
"Interaction between the two delay lines lets you create innumerable rhythmic variations, but what makes Objeq Delay unique is the interaction between the modules. Applying LFO modulation to parameters such as Object frequency, material, or formant can generate effects difficult to reproduce with other processors."
"Every now and again, you come across a plug-in that genuinely changes the way you work and becomes—for whatever period of time—your first choice plug-in, and that may be a week or a month or a year, it’s one of those plug-ins. I’m not gonna say the word game changer, we are not going to do that, but it’s a game changer."
"I was fortunate enough to use this plugin during the development cycle and it truly does sound fantastic. At first, I wondered why I would need another delay plugin in my toolbox but quickly found out that Objeq is not your average delay plugin. I’ve been using it in both my production and mixing sessions with amazing results."
"Objeq delay is a plug-in like no other. It’s a marvel of innovative thinking that may or may not inspire you, but I heartily recommend checking it out so that you may decide that for yourselves. Some of you, I can almost guarantee, are going to fall in love with it."
"Objeq Delay is the most fun I’ve had using an effect—hardware or software—in years. Strymon could put this functionality in a piece of hardware, release it as a limited edition, and it would be fetching four-figures on Reverb.com. If you are a creative musician, you need this effect! Boom!"
"As the preset banks that come with the device would suggest (particularly the stuff that Richard Devine put together for them), this is a deep and subtle piece if kit."
"Objeq is perfect for anyone looking for a distinctive delay that is musical, inspiring, and sui generis. I give this fine effect an affectionate double thumbs up—Love it! Thank you, Applied Acoustics Systems, for developing this effects gem!"
