The main reason for the lack of updates in the gearcorner of my website has been the lack of interesting news to write about. Now, the guy named Bootsy aka Variety of Sound just released his take on classic chorus / tape delay simulation with NastyDLA.
French developer Lowcoders updates his free tape delay KingDubby to version 1.5.2 and makes it available as universal binary to support modern Mac OS versions. Windows users will have to wait for the release of version 2.0 which is currently in development.
KingDubby does a solid job at doing that screamy tape delay sound and is said to be amongst the best available ones for Apple users. I don’t have a mac myself but a good friend of mine put his hands in fire for this one, so if it sucks please let me know and i’ll bitchslap him for real
Last not least, Lowcoders.fr are currently looking for feedback on the latest betas of their plugin. If you find a bug or annoyance, head to their website and tell them!
KingDubby is available from the Lowcoders.fr website.
Togu Audio Line releases a new version of their delay, suited for dirty, dubbish echoes and such. Dub-II comes with a new audio engine, very smooth low- and highpass filters, standard set of delay times, a nice oldschool VU meter and a LFO for delaytime, lowpass filter and stereo depth.
