Time Razor

Creative Versatile Dual Delay With Integrated Effects And Modulation

Overview of Time Razor 


Has 3 different delay modes: Single, Dual Serial and Dual Parallel. Each delay line appear as showed on picture.

Processing in stereo with independent left/right delay time and feedback for each delay line. Possibility to sync delay times to the host tempo.

Makes stutter, tape, pitched(includes broken chords), panning, rhythmic, granulated, ducked, filtered, Mid/Side etc. 
sounds a breeze to create

Hear It In Action

Synth - Ducking

In parallel mode, Time Razor has separate ducking controls. In this case, the first delay line (1/8 notes) has no ducking applied, while the second delay line (dotted 1/8 notes) has ducking applied and will fade up after the first delay line. We also make use of the powerful option of adding ping pong only to the second delay line, resulting in a cool sound that blends the delay lines while also playing with the stereo field

Synth - Duck Reverb

The first delay line (1/8 notes) is used in serial mode (serial level 60%) with the second delay line (1/16 notes) and ducking is added. The left/right feedback in delay line 2 is modulated, creating a panning effect. You can use the envelope follower to fade/duck the reverb up and down. This demonstrates that although ducking is only applied to delayed feedback, you can achieve ducking using the envelope follower.

Keys 5 up serial

While Time Razor doesn't have a conventional pitch shifter effect, you can use an LFO to modulate delay time in repitch mode and create pitch shifts. Pitch-shifted delays aren't time-synced but have a small delay in milliseconds. To achieve a more time-synced delay, combine both delays in serial mode. In this example, delay line 1 is set to 1/4 notes, and delay line 2 is pitch-shifted a fifth up from the original pitch. By keeping the serial level at 50%, we can still hear the 1/4 notes without the pitch. Time Razor includes several presets that provide harmonic pitch shift effects.

Shimmering Delay

This beautiful dynamic changing shimmering effect is created by modulating the multimode filter's cutoff with LFO1 (sin 1/4 triplet notes), then using an envelope follower to modulate LFO1 rate. We use only delay line 1 (dotted 1/8 notes) with long feedback. Finally, we add a bit of chorus and reverb. The "All→FX" setting is selected, which means that both dry and wet audio is colored by the multimode filter, chorus, and reverb.

Lofi Guitar

In repitch mode, you can create amazing, jumping pitch modulation effects by using an envelope follower to modulate delay time. For stereo effects, you can set the left/right delay time of the first delay line to 1/8 dotted and triple delay time. Only one delay line is needed in this case. Adding a bitcrusher effect gives a nice lo-fi sound.

Keys - Pitch Slide

When using repitch mode, you can control the speed of pitch shifting when changing the delay time. This can be used to create pitch slide effects – kind of guitar slide. In this example, we use the envelope follower to modulate the delay time of delay line 1 and remove unwanted artifacts using the shaper. Delay line 2 is then used to add some time ticks to the sound effect. In repitch mode, you can experiment and create many other creative pitch effects.

Drum/bas fade mode

Deconstruct and mess up any source in real-time! Modulate with LFO, envelope follower or manually tweak the delay

time - the "fade" mode keeps the pitch stable while changing delay time. Using "sync to DAW" mode makes timing easier, but working with delay times in milliseconds can create a massive granulated sound. In this example we use LFO to change the delay time. We manually changed the modulation amount and the fade parameter when recording this. Small fade values avoids artifacts, but pushing it high add artifacts, which is sometimes what you want. We only use wet audio.

Time Fade MIDI

Fade mode is a powerful feature that allows you to change delay time without producing audible artifacts, unless you intentionally want to. The fade setting can make cross-fades between delay times sound soft, harder, or even destructive (especially in ms time mode). In this example, we play a synth through Time Razor and modulate the delay time using our new MIDI triggered envelope. We add chorus and reverb to create this amazing cosmonaut sound.

Drums Chopped Up

We love the fade mode, so here is some more crazy stuff.

Keys - Fade To Next

This beautiful-sounding effect demonstrates how modulation of the multi-mode filter (cutoff) can create a smoothly filtered fading transition between echoes in the feedback path. We set different left/right delay times to create stereo, then narrow the stereo width a bit, and finally, we add chorus to the feedback path.

Bas - Resonance

Small delay times can create resonance, which, when used effectively, can yield useful effects. In this sound, we use Time Razor in parallel mode. The first delay line produces resonance, and we modulate the delay time with an LFO to create slight variations in the sound. We set the fade mode to avoid pitch artifacts. The second delay adds rhythm to the sound using dotted 1/8 notes. The multimode filter (BPF) adds color to the sound.

Stutter Reverb

We modulate the reverb wet parameter with both LFOs to create a cool stutter pattern perfectly synced to your DAW. We use the multimode filter and shaper to color the sound. To avoid a clean stuttering sound without a continuous tail, we use both delay lines in series (with a level balance of 60%) to add a continuous feedback tail.

Synth - Stutter

Another way to create fantastic stutter is by modulating the wet (echo) parameter. We use LFO1 to modulate the wet parameter, and LFO2 to modulate the rate parameter of LFO1. We also add a bit of chorus and phaser to the feedback path to enhance the effect.

Dirty Lead

When repitch  are set to 0, sound gets more distorted and glitchy when time is modulated. First delay line are set to straight 1/4 notes(L/R) and small feedback. Second delay line has 259 ms(L/R), small feedback and repitch set to 0. We use envelope follower to modulate second delay line. We use dual parallel mode and set level balance of delay line 2.  This sound is stored as a preset (Bite Me). Give it a try yourself.

Spaced Center

Mid-side mode is another way to manipulate the stereo image, enabling you to create intricate M/S effects by utilizing both delay lines. In this example we use the first delay line to produce an effect where the sides fade out more quickly than the mid adding a bit width. In Mid-Side mode reverb is added to Mid audio only. And setting reverb width to 0 creates this cool centered reverb sound.

Synth - Serial Parallel

The serial and parallel delay modes, and the level control that mixes the two delay lines, are very powerful ways to add dynamic delay to your sound. In this case, we manually change the delay mode and level while playing the instrument. It starts in serial mode with the level at 0%, then moves to 50%, 100%, and then shifts to parallel mode with the level at 50% and then back to serial mode with the level at 50%. We also add a bit of chorus (ALL FX).

Drum - Serial Parallel

You can easily create dynamic drum beats. Similar to the synth arp demo above, we also play with the serial and parallel delay mode here. Both delay lines have different left/right delay time settings. To avoid a totally chaotic stereo image, we modulate stereo width using an LFO. To get this swoosh sound, we modulate the multimode cutoff parameter. Finally, we add a bit of reverb.

Guitar - Spaced Out

You don't need to add reverb to get this cool spaced-out sound. We use the parallel mode. The first delay line adds 120 ms delay, then the second delay line adds 85ms and then  long feedback. Both lines use the offset parameter to create stereo. Finally, we add chorus (All→FX).

Mid Range Groove

Use shaper to set the frequency range, create a grooving mid-frequency delay using both delay lines, and add chorus, phaser, and reverb to the feedback path.

Synth - Chained

To emulate a side-chained effect, we use one delay line set to a 1/4T note delay time synced to the DAW. Then, we modulate it with an LFO (down ramp shape) that ducks the delay every 1/4 note, creating a massive, groovy synth sound. We have also added a separate, unprocessed drum kick track in the mix.

Keys - On Off Delay

Utilize the powerful modulation routing to create delays that are synchronized to your DAW, occurring only at specific times in the bar. For example, in this 4/4 bar,  first half has delay on and last half off.

Synth - Panning

It's easy to pan your feedback path. Simply use different left/right feedback settings or delay times. In this case, we set the left/right time to triplet and dotted 1/4 note sync, perfectly synced to your DAW. Then we add a bit of phaser, and finally, we modulate the multimode filter's cutoff with an LFO, which is added to the feedback path.
