Valhalla DSP has released ValhallaSupermassive, a freeware delay effect for digital audio workstations on PC and Mac in VST, AAX, and AU plugin formats.
ValhallaSupermassive is built around a collection of reverb and delay algorithms that are designed to sound artificial and otherworldly. These algorithms were deemed too "wild" to be included in the other Valhalla DSP plugins. ValhallaSupermassive can deliver a variety of reverberation and modulation effects thanks to these one-of-a-kind pieces of code. Massive delays, lush reverbs, evolving choruses, and deep flangers can be generated, as well as never-ending and insanely complex soundscapes.
The plugin combines multiple feedback delay networks that are connected together and controlled by the plugin’s unique WARP knob. This knob modifies how the delay networks interact with one another, producing a plethora of reverbs, echoes, and ultra-long delays. ValhallaSupermassive's mode selector is another way to change the character of the delayed signal. There are eight different delay modes to choose from, each providing a unique type of signal processing.
Other controls for a delay/reverb plugin are fairly standard. The user can adjust the dry/wet mix and the stereo width of the wet signal, as well as the delay feedback and density parameters. The delay time can be specified in milliseconds or in note lengths (dotted and triplet notes are supported, too).
Valhalla DSP is well-known for its massive reverb plugins such as Valhalla VintageVerb and Valhalla Shimmer. In addition, the company provides a variety of other modulation effects, as well as a freeware modulated delay plugin called Valhalla Freq Echo. With the release of ValhallaSupermassive, you can now obtain another piece of their DSP magic for free. Add ValhallaSupermassive to your sound design arsenal right away because it's one of the biggest delay plugins on the market. In addition, if you purchase any product from Valhalla DSP, you will be eligible for the Valhalla SpaceModulator effect as a free bonus.
ValhallaSupermassive is a free download from Valhalla DSP. Without registering, you can download the software directly from the product page. It's also worth noting that ValhallaSupermassive on PC and Mac supports both 32-bit and 64-bit plugin hosts.
