Questions & Answers

Q: Why were slap delays first used in old tape machines?

Slap delays were used in tape machines because the gap between the record head and the play head produced a delay, giving the music a unique sound.

Q: How can the speed of a slap delay be adjusted?

The speed of a slap delay can be adjusted by wrapping tape around the capstan or the roller in old tape machines.

Q: What is the difference between a basic delay and a reverb?

A basic delay creates a repeated echo effect, while a reverb creates a sense of space and ambience. A delay can be used more liberally without pushing the vocals or track too far back in the mix.

Q: How can a chorus effect be added to a delay?

A chorus effect can be added to a delay by using plugins like the Waves Enigma, which adds modulation and depth to the delayed sound.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Slap delays were first used in old tape machines and produce a delay on the order of 100 milliseconds. The speed of the slap can be adjusted by wrapping tape around the capstan or the roller.

  • Basic delays can be used to create a ping pong effect with different delay settings on each side. Feedback can be adjusted to control the amount of reverberation effect.

  • Adding a chorus effect to a delay can create a more interesting sound. An example is shown using a delay fed into an equalizer and the Waves plugin, Enigma.
