Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 is a new sampler and delay instrument
Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 is an experimental sampler and delay instrument conceived by the creative mind of Daedelus.
The Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 may seem confusing at first look, however it’s rather simple once you dig a bit deeper. It’s essentially a sampler with a bank of 10 samples loaded up (each being represented by a banana plug socket) and then two Trigger channels which have an arcade style button and pitch parameter.
Each of the trigger channels has a banana plug socket allowing you to patch it into any of the 10 sample trigger inputs. Due to the nature of banana plugs, they allow you to stack them up so you can create some interesting layered sounds too. You can also set samples to loop mode for some interesting looping effects.
As the Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 name suggests, there is a delay with time and feedback controls. One of the interesting features, especially for self-patching, is there is an internal envelope follower that’s controlled by the parameters of the delay, the resulting envelope is sent to the CV output of the channel and can be patched to the input of the other channel for some truly interesting effects.
Can it work with a Eurorack modular system?
The Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 has an audio input allowing you to sample audio into the internal samplers, all of the external ins and outs are 3.5mm jack allowing you to easily hook the unit up to an existing Eurorack modular system.
It’s a bit bigger than a traditional Eurorack module, so you won’t be able to mount it in your case, however that being said – it was part of the design choice as they wanted to make the unit live outside of the rack and be more “performative”.
The external patch bay has CV and Trigger input and output per channel as well as a sync input and output. The Bleep Labs Delaydelus 2 is a limited run, they’re only going to make 100 units, so if this sounds like your thing, be sure to pre-order ASAP. It’s set to retail at USD $295 (Around R4250 Excl. duties)
