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.

Excellent addition to my go-to toolbox!

This is one Very flexible multi-tap delay! I use it a lot, and it’s very efficient. The only thing I think would make it better is if the upper portion was a bit less intimidating. The lower portion is perfect and very straightforward to use. I think a “simple mode” for the upper portion where you just have the mix knobs without duplicating functionality. But I guess it makes sense if you run the plugin in half-screen mode, personally, I always use full screen mode so for me would be easier to just have minimal functionality for the upper portion of the app.

All in all, definitely recommend it, haven’t seen anything else in this category of flexibility.

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

Using IOS as my new “Studio” for demo recording, Kajita is a MUST!

If you stop and think “how those OLD recordings” pre-digital age was able to get delay, or the old style delays or (ANALOG) delay you would find that the ONLY way to do this was with ‘a tape deck with more then one play head, with these play heads being placed at different positions in sequence (heads being the way the sound was transformed from tape to the output or speakers) you would have the initial sound being played from the 1st position head, and where ever you wanted a delay you could place a tape head, or heads, by taking down or lowering the db on each head, you could make perfect delays very easy.

This app just BLOWS ANYTHING in the AUV3 world in the water!
But I will say It would be so cool to have this app, with its amazing features, set up in a ‘Analog’ view (Tape heads in animated simple outline) nothing complex but drawn clean lines of tape heads and tape flow (or sound flow) with features that empowers the user to move the multiple heads in real time to the sound!!

I think if any developer could pull it off properly, it would be IceWorks, Inc. (I did see another Dev actually try, but the gui is clunky with jpegs of actual components (which is distracting)
But with clean line animations! Wow!

A lot of us “Old Timers” (cracks me up that I’m actually considered an old timer when referring to studio engineering and production) I guess anyone who used 24 track ‘Tape’ in a studio and then dropping that recording into AVID (now ProTools) then pulling those files onto a ZIP Dat tape to do mix downs, would be an OLD TIMER!

I will say although cumbersome, the warmth from recording and mixing down in that way, cannot be replicated.
I know there are many ‘tape’ emulators, but when actually looking into the algorithm you realize, like most emulation, it’s all done though frequency which is basically just sweeping through highs-midi-lows YES basically using an EQ or a 24 band equalizer which is basically what the guys are using when making filter software!
