MSpectralDelay FREE Until June 3rd
MeldaProduction is currently offering FREE download of their new plugin MSpectralDelay which is a unique creative delay plugin. It “works in the spectral domain and lets you perform various transformations on the delayed signal – from changing pitch to arbitrarily transforming individual frequencies. It’s complex, but it is still easy-to-use for the beginners.” MeldaProduction is known for their unique bundles of plugins that are highly complex but easy to use! Here’s the description from the Melda website:
MSpectralDelay is extremely powerful, therefore also complex. So we have exploited its features and created 20 active presets on the easy screen, each as versatile as a dedicated plugin. These make using the plugin easy even for complete beginners.
Traditional delay plugins feature a simple feedback delay, which produces identical copies of the original signal, sometimes with a possibility of filtering, distortion or other basic effects. MSpectralDelay lets you transform individual frequencies. First it lets you control the delay time, feedback, panorama and level (EQ) for each frequency. MSpectralDelay also provides complex spectral transformations – pitch, frequency shift, formants, plus an actual frequency to frequency transformation and level to level transformation.
Isn’t transforming pitch, formants, levels and more advanced stuff enough to satisfy your creative needs? It wouldn’t be a Melda plugin without the signature modulators, multiparameters, channel modes, A-H presets, ABCD morphing and more!
Mela Production offers a few other free plugins, all of them are available once you create an account and download their plugin manager. This could be a hassle if you don’t like working through third-party management software but if you aren’t passionate about that obstacle then their plugins are highly recommended. Their whole range of effects offers precision and control unrivalled by many other popular plugin companies. The plugins have mid-side processing, surround sound processing, internal modulators, and many other unique features.
The user interface is laid out in a straightforward, though different from what you may be used to seeing. There are four sections splitting up the plugin – the first is the preset manager found on the left side of the effect. Next, you can see the FX controls where instead of knobs, you are given XY graphs for settings like EQ, Width, and Pitch. Above that are your traditional knobs for gain and delay feedback. There is then a large metering section followed by Utility settings on the far right side. Controlling the modulation requires the use of a second page but isn’t too hard to pick up. It would be nice if Melda releases a tutorial video for the plugin until then you can follow any instructions necessary in the included pdf manual.
MSpectralDelay is available as VST, VST3, AU, and AAX format for MacOS and Windows. It is normally priced at $119 but free to download from the Melda website until June 3rd so don’t sleep on this one!
