The original dub delay effect, Dubstation has been a go-to effect in the production toolbox for over a decade and a half with good reason. Now available on iOS, this 1:1 code-identical port of the desktop version of Dubstation brings this classic effect to the mobile production studio.
Easy to use and understand, Dubstation works just like a hardware delay pedal. True stereo operation and a nice saturated feedback path provide an instant-classic delay effect that has been used in thousands of commercial tracks.
>> Tempo-synchronized or millisecond timing.
>> True stereo dual time mode, single time mode, or ping-pong.
>> EQ and saturation control on the feedback path, for tonal control.
>> LFO to delay time, for chorus and tape effects.
>> Tempo-synced stereo looping ("infinite mode") with sound-on-sound and reverse.
>> Heavily optimized for extremely low CPU usage. Use as many as you want, even on an older device.
>> Factory and user presets that can be copied to and from the desktop version.
>> Audio samples and manual available at the Audio Damage website.
1. All-new preset manager! The much-hated dropdown menu is gone, replaced with the same preset manager we have in our other iOS products. Preset naming and deleting, a shared preset folder between the AUv3 and standalone, and the factory presets now show up in your host's preset browser.
2. Stereo Width control! Narrow the width for full-metal monophonic dual delay action, or crank it open for the wide soundstage that all the audiophiles love.
Several bug fixes, and the plugin has been rewritten entirely to maintain concurrency with the desktop versions; all versions of Dubstation 2 for every platform are now identical, and built from the same codebase.
Ratings and Reviews
Great when it’s not crashing
I own every Audio Damage app for iOS, and I have to this for all of them across the board, while they sound great, they are un reliable and susceptible to crashing and other issues when it comes to mixing down projects in a lot of iOS Daws. I like Audio Damage products a lot but there seems to be a lot lacking in quality control.
Do not work in AUM
Please fix it
Great plugin, sound and UI
Check out some YouTube videos of it in action. I’ll just say that I very much recommend it. What you can’t “hear” from the videos is Efficiency. And when it comes to iPads that’s super important because you can get cracking sounds crashes etc when plugin consumes too much resources. Recently bought couple of fx (from another dev), both were great sounding but horrible at resource usage when those plugins are opened (so that you can adjust them) they cause crackling sounds.
I have 8 AU plugins and one synth from Audio Damage and all are quite efficient with Filterstation2 probably the heaviest of the bunch, and still works fine unless I really load a lot of different apps/fx.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
