Repeater is a new plugin by D16, released in collaboration with Slate Digital. According to the developers, Repeater can mimic the behaviors of almost any classical delay unit.
Too good to be true? D16 developers have a strong track record and Repeater looks like a new hit: a dual delay line device that features 23 unique authentically modeled delay units ranging from classic oil cans and plates to the most famous vintage digital designs:
Cassette Tape – A model of an early 80’s Japanese cassette tape deck.
Coopy Cube – An early 70’s delay originally made from a garden hose.
Digital 42 – One of the most famous modern digital delays.
Digital 42 x 2 – The double option on the Digital 42, it halves the sample rate for the lo-fi tone.
Digital Delay – A clean, hi resolution digital delay (the default setting).
DM-2 – An early bucket brigade analog delay.
Mellow Delay – Subdued delay based on several vintage analog topologies.
Memory Guy – Analog delay with vintage tone.
Mirky Delay – Based on early bucket brigade analog delays.
New Radio – Delay tone with FM radio style.
Old Radio – Delay tone with AM radio style.
Pitchy Delays – (3 models) – Delays with slight pitch modulations for extreme spatial effects.
Plexy Echo – Based on an old 70s tape delay unit.
Space Delay – Based on the famous magnetic tape delay
Tape Delay Ancient – An extremely old 1940’s style tape delay tone.
Tape Delay Classic – Early 60’s style tape delay.
Tape Delay Modern – Hi-fi tape delay.
Tape Delay Vintage – 70’s style tape tone.
Telephone 1 – Lo-fi telephone tone.
Telephone 2 – Another lo-fi telephone tone with slightly different frequency and distortion tone.
TelRay – The analog delay classic made original from a tuna can.
Repeater appears to be a typical stereo delay effect processor with independent control of the processing path for the left and right channels. In fact, it features independent re-panning and dry/wet mixing for each of two stereo channels, which makes it a full double delay line effect.
Repeater also features a unique analog feedback button, which cycles all repeats continuously through an analog – modeled circuit path – allowing the feedback to melt away naturally.
