TTAP for iOS is an AUv3 delay effect inspired both by adventures with analog tape and by otherworldly textural effects only possible in the digital world. Whether you’re looking for bread-and-butter delay sounds, subtle enhancements, or evolving experimental echoes, TTAP fits what you need.
*** Please note: TTAP is an Audio Unit extension (AUv3) – it only works in an AUv3 host app like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Modstep, Beatmaker 3, etc... ***
HOW IT WORKS / DESCRIPTION
TTAP is a delay with two buffers. Each buffer features extensive controls for shaping the envelope of the delay sound, with another control set for glitchy pre-feedback repeats and warm pitch-bends.
Inspired by both the classic sounds of tape delays and by experiments in editing and splicing tape, TTAP features a dedicated Section control for determining the maximum length of time of the second buffer. Section also acts as a virtual LFO control, affecting a number of modulation parameters.
Both the Delay Time and Section controls in TTAP can either be synced to your DAW, or run free, providing up to 3.0 seconds of time for each. Try changing the speed while TTAP is running with high feedback for the expanding/contracting doppler sound familiar to any dub lover (or automate and randomize the process using the Bend control).
In The Fade
Fade easily between two delay buffers, or jump to using one buffer exclusively with the click of a button.
Glitch and Chance
In addition to the familiar feedback control, TTAP includes controls for randomized Repeats (synced to the Section time) for a glitchier sound. In addition, each of the buffers features a dedicated Reverse switch.
In addition to control positions, the animations in TTAP give you essential information such as the mix between buffers, amount of feedback, time gap between buffers, and the envelope for each buffer.
Go By Feel
As part of encouraging more musical and creative applications of WOV, in addition to using symbols for controls, the controls in WOV do not have individual readouts. We encourage you to let your ears determine the right knob positions whenever you can! If you’d like a precise readout, however, you can see/edit it by clicking on any parameter and looking in the upper-right corner of WOV.
By default, all labels are graphical – for text labels, click the symbols/text label switch in the lower-right had corner.
- fixed a bug that may cause clips if Section is sync
Ratings and Reviews
Dude. I bought a stand-alone delay plug-in, nuff said.
If there’s one effect that we have endless options to choose from, as it comes with any and every music app, every sampler, beat maker, daw, multi effect, synth, guitar processor, et al, it’s a friggin DELAY. There is almost no delay app I would ever feel compelled to pick up, as it’s a pretty easy effect to make sound good, even if you’re stuck with duplicating wav files in a DAW editing lane.
That being said, this delay is super siiiiiiiiiiick! It’s got these warp and crimp and wobble controls that makes even a good pitch shifting delay seem lame. The glitchers and databenders thought a delay like this was only ever gonna be something to imagine using while banging the wife with their eyes closed. It’s weird, with glitchy stutters and tight envelope followers. Will already be taking it’s place amongst my most used effect apps, right there with LowFly Diry, Bit Maestro, and the ToneBoosters series. It’s so good, that it made me decide to grab Shaper today, solely so I could complete the K Devices trio, having faith that it would be worth it after W and This guy were such absolute. BANGERS!
Hell yes I’ll have another!
You guys are stepping up your game hard this year! I’ve been a dedicated Audio Damage fan for my “extreme” effects stuff and hardly stepped outside of them for a decade and a half aside from desktop Native Instruments Kontakt type stuff and Sugar Bytes but your guys have jumped into the winners circle with the last two releases which were both an awesome surprise as they came out in quick succession and out of
Nowhere. Tbh I’m considering putting the effort into doing a YouTube tutorial on this an WOV and show how I run many of my Ableton tracks through AUM where I process them using your work and run it back into the DAW because they’ve become such a necessary part of my sound and workflow!
One of my favorite things about your recent work is your approach to interface design (also what I do for a living). I love the minimalist yet heavily visual vector style you guys use. I blushingly admit I’ve been using it as an inspiration for some of my client work without crossing the line but the flat single color, visually communicated approach and how you guys make it seem both retro and hyper modern at the same time has rocked my approach to design! Please stick with this interface style as its very very easy to work with and explain to collaborators if I produce with other ppl. These plugins are the perfect mix of simplicity with just the right amount of detailed control. It’s not overwhelming and since I’ve made the handful presets I need beyond the sweet options u give us, I hardly map anything and if I do it’s 2-3 midi ccs.
So thanks so much and keep up the amazing work because if this company keeps at it with releases like these and adds new sonic territory but with similar UI and creative executions like this you can be the mobile device goto company for producers and that role still isn’t taken since it’s still just dominated by conversions from old classic desktop top teams like Audio damage and fab filter porting their work. But this stuff is beautiful on the small and mid size screen in a way those guys didn’t build their stuff to be when they first coded their UIs, they had to modify. Cheers and good luck and I’m routing for you! Planning a YouTube tut dedicated to TTAP and WOV to release within the next week so hopefully that goes well! If your interested in talking about the products for a few minutes I’d love to feature any thoughts and background info you might have to share with the iOS based audio scene. I think these tools deserve that focus since guys like Haq have the more instrument type iOS apps covered we need to give more exposure and true understanding of the potential with the plugin/fx side of the field which is more fun than learning the difference between two fm synths anyway imo lol
Neat experimental delay
Neat experimental delay but requires too much of a learning curve to find sweet spots that are usable in “real” recordings. For someone who is interested in experimenting more than playing (which is not a bad thing).
