VST Tap Delay

Download the Windows VST-Plugin (version 0.6 - 21/05/2010 - 188kB) : or the MAC OS Audio Unit (AU) & VST (version 0.6 - 05/09/2010 - 586kB):

For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here:

Plug-in Installation:

Windows VST:
Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

Apple Mac OS Audio Units and VSTs:
1.) Unzip the dedicated ZIP-File
2.) Copy TapDelay.vst to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
3.) Copy TapDelay.component to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

Important: To use the Audio Units you need to copy the *.vst as well.

The application implements a Tap Delay by calculating the BPM from the button or space-key clicks.

Dry/Wet [%]:
Mix between clean and delayed signal.

Note Values:
The note values together with the BPM define the delay value.

The BPM gets calculated from the Button or Space-Key clicks. Furthermore, it is possible to set the BPM value by using the slider. The BPM, together with the note values, defines the delay value.

Delay / Frequency:
Displays the calculated and applied delay as well as the frequency for LFO usage.

Feedback [dB]:
Delay feedback to create repetitive echos.

Low Pass [Hz]:
Low Pass Filter applied to the delay feedback loop.

Gain [dB]:
Output gain.
