In this video, I want to discuss how delay effects work and how to apply them in…your Pro Tools sessions.…Delay effects record a signal, then play it back at a user-selected delay time,…often called delay time or delay length.…A single delay of less than 35 milliseconds is called a double, because this…effect makes the tracks sound like there are two of the same part being played…or sung at basically the same time.…A slapback delay is a single repeat with the delay time of over 35 milliseconds.…
Slapback delay times of 35 to 75 milliseconds are good for thickening vocal or…instrumental tracks,…while delays of 125 to 350 milliseconds are useful for making a vocal or…guitar track sound large.…Let's go over to the Mix window, and I am going to open up this extra long delay plug-in.…Now it's usually a good idea to set the delay time in relation to the beat…and tempo of the song.…The rhythm you create with the delay can add a nice groove element.…
To do this, make use of the Tempo Sync feature, which will synchronize the delays…
