Recording and mixing engineers know that timing their delays and reverbs to the pulse of the track can make their tracks sound larger than life. While most delay plugins sometime provide a rudimentary timing setting, great engineer’s know that the secret to a timed delay is in all of the denominations and sub-denominations that most plugins can’t provide. That’s where Bobby Owsinski’s Delay Genie app comes in.
The Delay Genie app replaces the delay chart that many studios use to set the delay time, or the automatic timing of a plugin. After the BPM is directly entered or tapped in, the Delay Genie will instantly display:
delays in 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 note time increments delays in triplet time increments for 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 notes delays in dotted note time increments for 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 notes.
In the Live mode the Delay Genie app can also calculate the delay time from the stage to a delay speaker stack in a live sound reinforcement situation, and even account for differential in temperature that can affect the timing.
The Delay Genie app can be used for:
discovering the tempo of a track by tapping it in setting the delay time to make a track larger than life setting the delay time so it fits better in the track setting the delay time so it sticks out of the track setting reverb pre-delay time setting reverb decay time
setting the delay time between speakers in a sound reinforcement situation.
The Delay Genie app was designed by Bobby Owsinski, author of a variety of books on recording, mixing, mastering, band improvement, touring, studio work and music business.
