How Mechanics Affects the Different Delay Types

The MECHANICS knob provides modulation and additional media contaminants affects each of the 3 delay types a little differently from each other:

  • drum – The MECHANICS knob increases the amount of warping of the metal spinning platter…
  • tape – Wow and flutter is applied as the MECHANICS knob is turned up.  Tape crinkle is added as you turn past the 12 o’clock noon position.
  • studio – A fixed rate LFO modulates the delay time with the depth of the LFO increasing as you turn up the MECHANICS.  There are no additional irregularities or contaminants applied as you turn up the MECHANICS with the studio delay mode.

Note: Adjusting the SPEED switch also affects the speed of the modulation.
