Device Details


Name | Version: Nancarrows Delay 1.0
Author: josquin2000
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: 9 midi delays, settable metrically, each with transpose: will add velocity offsets in ver 1.1...this is actually quite useful, from strumming effects to odd "feedback polyphony",lots of use for this.

Hi, to me it seems that there are problems in making an odd tuplet altogether because the metro, delay and the pipe drift if they are not locked to live transport but have a value based on a ratio.
It's great!! thanx a lot!!
any effect involving nancarrow is worth checking out! thanks.

I really would like to get it in 16 different notes...
In order to work with it like raindrops or water rings, it could be great to link all durations of the delays to a global control pot, able to shift differently each delay time controll ( each one refering to a multiplication point on a curve we can select).
Another cool thing could be to control veocity of each delay,
and finally, it's feedback to get polyrythm...

Thanks a lot for your work.
Yes, I have really have enjoyed playing with this ! Did I miss something, or can the delay settings (time strech) not be saved ? Somehow I do not manage this.
Thanks for your work.
great device— makes awesome sounds!
little suggestion: i don't want to be anal, but you should consider using local sends and receives (add a "---" infront of their argument). i was trying to use 2 devices (on 2 different tracks) and they kept passing their tempo ratio to eachother.
" will add velocity offsets in ver 1.1"

I am so exited to try 1.1 :)
I've done an edit of this at

Solves stuck notes, tempo ratio passing, added separate randomisation for pitch, delay and duration, and tidied the code somewhat.
