Synthesis Technology/MOTM e580 Resampling Mini-Delay
NoiseBug Price : $289
a new spin on an old friend.
the synthesis technology e580 resampling mini-delay emulates the classic sounds of digital, bbd and tape-based delays with 4 parameters under voltage control. the 14hp wide euro module accepts either +-12v euro standard power or +-15v motm/frac power. using a 40mhz dsp and 24-bit codec, the e580 recreates the pitch-shift modulating of bbds with the variable bandwidth and noise floor without costly bbd ics. in tape mode, wow& flutter, tape saturation and non-linear distortion model classic tape units without the bulk and maintenance. there are 2 simultaneous audio outputs: a straight delay and a variable tapped delay. the tap position is a percentage of the main delay time. this allows very short delays (<350us) as well as long delays (750ms). both tap position (‘offset’) and main delay time are voltage-controlled over a -5v to +5v range.
feedback is jumper-selectable from either the tapped position or the main delay. this flexibility can generate standard ‘rhythmic’ delays (feedback from main delay) or a series of 'pre-delay reflections' (tapped delay) which sound very different from each other.

JP2: feedback will be taken from the Tap output (position 1-2) or the Delay output (position 2-3)
Wet/Dry Sets the effects mix
Feedback Applies negative feedback (CCW) or positive feedback (CW). When placed in the center, there is zero feedback.
Tap Offset Sets the percentage of the Tap Out in relation to the Delay Time. For example, if the Delay Time is set to 100ms, the Tap is set from 0-100ms. The time resolution is very fine (over 7,000 independent positions) to allows very smooth modulation of the Tap position.
Delay Time Sets the delay time for the Delay Out. Note that since Tap Out is a percentage of Delay Time, if you change the Delay Time there is a corresponding change to the Tap Out delay time. The time ratio of Delay to Tap is constant however.
