So, after about two years of hard work, 4ms and myself are happy to announce that the Tapographic Delay is almost at the doors We're entering the final stretch: it should be in store mid-December.
The Tapo is a unique take on the concept of multi-tap delay. It features:
- a velocity-sensitive force sensor to tap the delay configurations (tapographies)
- up to 32 taps, each with its own delay time, amplitude, panning…
- per-tap filter: low-pass or resonant (pingable) band-pass
- morphing between delay configurations, with adjustable morph time
- two different feedback paths: a Repeat toggle and a Feedback knob
- 4 banks of 6 slots to save and recall delay configurations
- a tapography sequencer with forward, random walk or random directions
- synchronization to an external clock
- a Gate output that plays the current rhythm of delays
- a maximum delay time of 174 seconds (almost 3 minutes)
- 16 bits/48kHz with 32 bits floating-point internal processing, 1.3ms software latency
- mono-in, stereo-out operation
The manual should follow soon. We'll be happy to answer questions if you have some. I'd also like to thank Dan and the whole crew at 4ms, whom it's been really nice to work with!
