Moog 500 format analog DelayASHEVIILLE, N.C. (MuseWire) – Moog Music has announced the release of the “Analog Delay,” the first delay designed and created exclusively for the 500 series pro audio format. The Analog Delay is a 100% analog signal path module that features 800ms of delay time, front panel MIDI control, and an assignable Tap Tempo/CV jack on its front panel. Included with each unit is a free VST/AU/RTAS editor for easy implementation into any recording, live, and performance situation.

It’s described by the company as: “100 Percent Analog Signal Path Module Features 800ms of Analog Delay Time, Midi Control and Assignable Tap Tempo/CV Jack on Front Panel.”

The Analog Delay has been designed with tone, connectivity, and flexibility at the forefront. Moog’s engineering team worked tirelessly to deliver a delay with an incredibly clean front end that could easily be pushed into a warm, natural overdrive for saturated delay trails or distorted delay effects.

Though not on the front panel, the Analog Delay features a 6 Waveshape LFO that allows users to create other time based effects such as tape delay, chorus and extremely modulated sounds. The LFO is easily accessed via MIDI and the free VST/AU/RTAS Analog Delay plug-in editor.

Moog 500 format analog Delay (full) Also accessible via the included editor are advanced features like Tap/CV input routing, Keyboard Control settings, Clock Divisions and a Delay Multiplier for access to illegal delay times (up to 4x the front panel position). In addition to Tap Tempo and CV control, the Tap/CV input can also convert click track audio into a tap tempo signal.

The 500 series Analog Delay combines the sound of the ultimate analog delay with convenient digital control and flexibility to create the perfect recording and live sound tool.
