So I wanted to come up with a sound that really pushes the boundaries of what TimeLine can do. Let’s create something that doesn’t even sound like a delay! The sound you get here is more like a weird modulated ambience that floats around your signal.
This sound utilizes the very versatile Filter machine. First, let’s crank the Time all the way down to 60ms. Now let’s turn the LFO Speed all the way to 32/1. Because the LFO is set so fast it doesn’t really matter which LFO you choose. The goal here is to really remove the delay and turn it more into a wash of sound that occurs around your signal. Next I dialed in a small amount of filter and grit, and a good amount of modulation to really move the sound around.
Audio clip starts out with TimeLine bypassed. Effect is engaged at 0:05.
Here are the knob and parameter settings. Dial it up on your TimeLine and give it a try.
