  • Dan Cooper's Top 5 Delay Plug-ins
    At the beginning of 2016 I posted my top 4 Limiter Plug-ins.  I decided to continue this theme and list my favourite delay plug-ins.  Delays are a great alternative to using reverb plug-ins.  If used correctly then delays are a good way of creating spaces around an instrument without having to reach for a reverb that can often muddy up a mix with long reverb tails.  Creative uses of delay bring sonics to a mix that can help portray certain emotional cues and vibes in a mix.
