A new Pittsburgh Modular Analog Delay Unit

Hey folks! Pittsburgh Modular just announced their new adorable and
really, really great sounding Analog Delay Unit.
I've had a chance to play with it and I say it's good!
Some fascinating insights from designer Micheal Johnsen.
He is seriously knowledgeable about these things on a level very few people
on this whole earth are.

Huhu smile I like their videos.
Voltage Labs is on its way to me, so I'll have the opportunity to test this module in context.

Yay!!! applause
When I seen the lab I thought I hope they do some of the modules broken out !!! And was primarily interested in the delay and filter
Pretty excited for it!

Any idea when this will be released and price?

Based on the sound examples (and the VRL videos) this sounds like a great delay.

From the website: "The suggested retail price for the Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms Analog Delay Unit is $199. The module is available now and begins shipping Friday."

I notice the delay time slider seems to be non-linear, with control over the longer echo times related to only a small region at the top of the throw.

I'm curious if this is a design decision or just a side effect of the circuit as designed?

Wow, 6HP/35mm deep is a nice size for this. I'd have expected larger.

OH Shit... I agree about the videos, despite the cloying retro look, I’m rather endeared by the knowledge and general attitude of the makers. It’s nice to see plants in nature and not dolloped around someone’s system like new age crystals.

I tried this out at their factory recently. Very simple, great sound, compact...does just what it is designed for. The analog replicator added more of a texture component so I think PM was after a more straightforward delay.

Richard on this one......

340ms of delay isn't really enough for my tastes but it is a stylish design and I'm sure is well made. The delay character does sound good as far as short echos are concerned, from what I can tell on crappy laptop speakers... Tentatively interested. hmmm..... Rockin' Banana!

i'm curious about this as well. you can see the curve here:

my guess is that maybe the longer throw on the shorter times is to make it easier to "tune" when self oscillating??

some more info from the insta comments:

"the ADU has a new feedback circuit for a lot more echos before self-oscillating. We also managed to brighten and clean up the sound."

i noticed those clean repeats with the lovely falloff... sounds great!

There's actually been a little resistor value fine tune for this very reason since that video.

Very cool, thanks! The tone quality of the delay sounds great, particularly the mangling of voice with longer delay times shown in your video.

I think this is to the Voltage Research Laboratory what the iPod Shuffle was to the iPod.

A very tempting and affordable taste of the full thing. Want to know more? I guess we need to wait for VRL general availability (I did not Kickstarter).
