BBD delay-style effects or the famous 70s pitch shifters are all united here, to be used with ease.

Modulate the pitch of the delay with eight LFO waveforms

Define the length of the delayed signal either in beat divisions (Sync mode) or time units (Free mode). The higher the feedback setting, the more repetitions of the delayed time you will hear. Downsample the signal and dial in additional overtones with ring modulation.

Pitch the delayed signal down or up, affect the grain size and how the sound is changed by the Pitch Shifter with Grain Shape. The versatile LFO lets you modulate the pitch of the delay with eight different waveforms and intensity.

You can also add a random panning effect, reverb and level the input, output and the Dry/Wet balance to round the sound off.
