Synthetic Sound Labs - Model 1310: Voltage Controlled Digital Delay
The SSL 1310 Voltage Controlled Digital Delay is a unique single width 5U/MU module for producing short to medium audio delays. For shorter delays, short room like slap-backs are killer. At medium delays, you can emulate vintage tape echos. You can even force the module for longer delays, but digital quantizing noise becomes audible – but who’s to say what’s musical and what’s not?
It’s based on the ubiquitous Princeton Technologies PT2399 delay chip which is used in countless effects pedals. The really cool part is that delay times are voltage controllable, allowing everything from a little chorusing effect to a grinding, gurgling mass hysteria.
