Using the three-delay setup

Just like with reverb, many mixers will use multiple delays during a mix. In this setup, we'll use three different delays. One set up for a very short delay. Another is medium and another long. Let me show you how to set them up and what they sound like. The reason why we are going to do this is three delays cover most of the possibilities that might arise during the mix. It's also possible that one of the delays will be dedicated to just one mix element, like a solo or a lead vocal. So our very first delay is going to be the Haas delay, and as we said in another movie, this is a very, very short delay of 40ms or a less. Let's set that up.

So what we are going to do is go toward Delay. I always use the Long Delay and the reason why is it gives me a lot more flexibility. If I decide that I want to go to a lot longer than 36ms it's very easy to do that. One of the big problems with some of these other delays like the short delay or the medium delay is they have a finite length...
