This is an audio unit plugin that puts a small delay between the left and right channels.

Why would you want to do that? Here's why:

We recently saw a video interview of a very famous guitarist in which his guitar was delayed a few milliseconds in the right channel. It may have been caused by unusual microphone placement, or perhaps it was just an error on the part of the person who recorded the video. Whatever the reason for it, it sounded great. He was playing into a vintage amp with no other reverb or delay, but the sound had a wide stereo image that didn't sound electronic or artificial and didn't distort the natural sound of the amp. This is commonly known as Haas effect.

With most delay effects it's not so easy to get a precise, very small delay on just one channel, but this app does it with just one simple control.

In case you need to modulate the effect, this plugin smoothly transitions between different delay time settings, causing a pitch shift while the delay time is on the move toward its new setting.

This plugin is simple, so we are giving it away for free. Enjoy!

Wanted this from the beginning

A while ago someone posted about simple tweaks to liven up stereo recording tracks. That’s where I first saw the “delay or advance one track a few milliseconds” trick. When I started using iOS apps in music i was thrilled to see this app and that is was free. The interesting thing is that when I do this trick in audio recording it is no more than a 2 msec delay but in this app it requires a little bit more.

Minor and Simple but Very Effective

All it does is delay one side of a stereo track - but you’d be surprised how deep and developed this can make your otherwise flat-sounding tracks seem. Really glad I got this and am using it as needed. All it takes is a very slight delay for a major difference.

One patch and I’ll give five stars

this plugin improves my songs by quite a bit when it works, but it’s unreliable. First off, when the effect is in use on a track, it will randomly make this loud “blast of static” as another review called it, and then when a song with the effect is uploaded, that static makes a way into the actual upload. Like I said, when it works, this plugin sounds amazing, it just needs that one problem fixed and it’s perfect.
