Manecolabs has announced the release of Sixteen Seconds Delay Reissue, which they say is inspired by “the original looping delay from 1983.”
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“The device topology is the same as first digital delays from that era, with an all-analog signal path, pre emphasis and de emphasis, compression and expansion, anti-alias and reconstruction filtering and input output buffering and mixing.
Digital processing is limited only to analog to digital conversion, memory management and storage and digital to analog conversion, all in glorious eight bits.
There’s also an analog triangle Low Frequency Oscillator for modulating delay time/pitch, and a click metronome generator, also analog driven by the memory read circuit, with level and independent output.
Maximum delay time has been increased to 64 seconds, there are toggle switches for slow/fast speed/pitch and reverse playback.
On board footswitches control infinite/freeze from the delay buffer, and bypass for the whole unit. Slider illuminated controls are delay time coarse, delay time fine, sweep rate and depth, clix volume, feedback and mix.”
Pricing and Availability
Sixteen Seconds Delay Reissue is available to pre-order for $699 USD, with a production run limited to 50 units.
