Kajita combines two-stage multi-tap stereo delay with reverb, allowing you to create complex spatial effects.

- All delay taps are time-modifiable to create chorus effects and undulating delay sounds.
- The first stage delay has an "Eary Reflections" section as included in the reverb effect.
- There is a saturator at the input of the second stage delay, and it is possible to create a sound in which the amount of distortion increases each time feedback is repeated.
- The second stage delay has a total of eight taps: feedback tap, cross feedback tap, five output taps, and cross out tap. Output taps are divided into two groups, which are connected to filters and panners, respectively. Also, the three taps connected to the panner have their own filters.
- Reverb can control the volume and filter of early reflection sound and tail sound separately.

good delay

it’s good, I don’t understand it but I need to learn it, this delay has more knobs than many synthesizers, one thing that is extremely good is the wet and dry parameters of the final output there is two knobs one you can control how much of the effect you want and the other you can control how much of the original source you want very interesting to have these two separate, it seems like for this delay it’s meant to spend a lot of time on tweaking the perfect sound because there are so much parameters to alter, this freedom is good, the actual sound of the delay effect is overall good it’s not cheaply designed definitely not

My Secret Stuff

I look at the layout and just laugh. There’s no way I’m gonna understand it. But what I love doing is filling up the screen with it and telling folks I’m working on my own nuclear reactor

Excellent addition to my go-to toolbox!

I thought it would be difficult/slow to use, but it’s actually very straightforward and quick. The diagram shows how the signal is traveling from left to right. Best way to get into this plugin is by rolling down all the Mix knobs and then introduce them one by one kind of like layers. You don’t need to use all the taps nor all the functions for each preset you make, it’s got many options and you can use as many or few as you like to get a preferred result. I start small and add more as I go. The ability to dial in each piece as needed is really awesome, and means you can get many different results tailored to the taste.

I find this delay is very usable when used subtly as well as more heavily. I’ve used it on drums, and synths and even bass (who uses delay on bass right? lol but I used it subtly and it made the bass “bigger” almost like a type of chorus). With instruments/synths it can add a very pleasant characteristic of spacious fluidity, without even using reverb. I initially tested it with reverb off, but then started dialing it in too, and it’s really great as well. In particular, because you can send things selectively to the reverb and in just right amounts. Which is completely different from all other delay plugins with built-in reverb, as they just slap a reverb at the end of the chain.

Lastly, I’ve watched some videos where it’s kind of implied that Kajita is more on “experimental” side. Usually when I hear that I assume it means that an app is chaotic by nature and you have to try hard to tame it. I didn’t find this at all here. There’s a lot of room for experimenting - definitely, but majority of results I got were very usable. And tweaking them to be perfect takes much less time than I assumed initially. Much easier, for example, to use than Timeless 3 (which I also like, though tend to use less frequently because it takes me longer to get what I want). Timeless is also completely different type of delay so can’t compare them directly.

So in summary, Kajita is really fun to use to quickly make simpler melodies sound much more interesting. Haven’t tried it on guitars yet, pretty sure it’s gonna be just as awesome. Highly recommend it!
