Vintage Delay Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.
Delay Mix [DLYMIX]
Controls the relative level of the twin delays, Delay A and Delay B. The H9 has circuitry that detects which input/output jacks are being used and adjusts the routing of signals through the Effects algorithm accordingly. Dly Mix’s mixing behavior depends on whether you’re using mono or stereo outputs. For Mono Out, with [DLYMIX] = 0, output 1 will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50%, Output 1 has an equal amount of Delay A and Delay B. With [DLYMIX] =100, Output 1 will have only Delay B’s contribution. For Stereo output, with [DLYMIX] = 0, BOTH outputs will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50, Delay A goes to Output 1 only and Delay B goes to Output 2 only. With [DLYMIX] = 100%, BOTH outputs will have only Delay B’s contribution.
Delay A [DLY-A]
Sets delay time for Delay A output B from 0 to 3000 ms (milliseconds). With Tempo OFF, delay is displayed in mSec. With Tempo ON, delay can be sync’d to the tempo and is displayed as a rhythmic sub-division of the tempo beat value - changing this from 0 to a whole note in common note increments.
Delay B [DLY-B]
Same as A.
Feedback A [FBK-A]
Controls level of Feedback A, the number of repeats.
Feedback B [FBK-B]
Same as A.
Bits [BITS]
Selects the number of bits of resolution. Early digital delays used analog to digital converters with limited resolution. Theory predicts that each bit equals 6 dB of resolution; so that an 8 bit converter would deliver, at best, a mere 48 dB of dynamic range. VintageDelay simulates the effects of limited resolution - the sound of nasty digital noise from years gone by.
Modulation Depth [DEPTH]
Selects the amount of delay modulation (0=OFF, 10=MAX).
Modulation Speed [SPEED]
Sets the delay modulation rate (0-5Hz).
Filter [FILTER]
Controls the filter to simulate the tone of band-limited old school delays.
Output Level
At 0 the output level is unaffected. Increase the output level of the effect by up to 20 dB or lower by 30 dB.
Tempo is turned ON/OFF on the H9 by simultaneously pressing the Right Footswitch and the PRESETS button. With Tempo OFF, tapping can be used to adjust delay parameter values (displayed as milliseconds or Hz). With Tempo ON, tempo is in BPM.
Turn effect on or off..
Press and hold for infinite repeat.
If Tempo is ON, the display indicates the current tempo in BPM (30 to 500 BPM) while tapping and the Tap LED will blink at the BPM rate. If Tempo is OFF, the display indicates the parameter value (milliseconds for most algorithms).
