Device Overview

Name/Version: BBD delay 0.5
Author: chaosmoon  
Description: watch demo here:

A delay device with selectable filter on input, filter, overdrive and LFO modulation on feedback and limiter on output.

It can resemble a lo-fi BBD delay and does quite well at extreme feedback effects.

Based on the OCD43 device by Willum070
I tweaked it to my needs, simplified a few things, made a "native" Live styled layout and got rid of the javascript dependancy.

demo sounds great - no more lugging around guitar pedals! thanks

great ! no clip, really nice effect :)

getting alot of use out of this one - one thing i noticed is the dry ist quite "true bypass." chained it up and its fine, but wanted to let you know. thanks again.

This is a really great delay effect and indeed can sound very analog / BBD. One of the most musical delays I've encountered in LIVE / M4L. A couple of small suggestions if I may...

1) The mod depth control is very sensitive so it's a bit hard to get subtle modulation...would be nice to have more range at lower depth settings.
2) Would love to see longer delay times up to say 8-10 seconds or sync to Bars: 1/2/4 etc.

Either way I am enjoying the device and find it very musical...thanks!

Onee more comment; you might want to make the name something like BBD Analog Delay as I could not find it with search as I kept thinking "analog delay". GREAT analog flanger affects like my old A/DA Flanger!

After months of use I still find this to be one of the best delays I have used. The varied Input filters and Feedback filters really allow you to get different tonalities from Echoplex to analog BBD delays that are darker.

It also does very close to Zero Crossing flanger and wonderful resonant flanger affects. I'm using a Max LFO for modulation as the internal mod gets really deep really fast.

Would love to see longer delay times up to 8 seconds or more. A great device!

Still one of the best sounding delays I've found here by far.

1) Does not remember delay time when saving a preset or in Live set.
2) LFO depth is too deep too fast at lower settings.
3) Tempo sync would be helpful.
4) Longer delay times would be great (if possible)
5) CPU use is a bit high
