DELAY GONE DEEP
Meet TTAP – the delay plugin inspired both by adventures with analog tape and by otherworldly textural effects only possible in the digital world. Whether you’re looking for bread-and-butter delay sounds, subtle enhancements, or evolving experimental echoes, TTAP fits what you need. Part of K-Devices new Phoenix effects series.
HOW IT WORKS
TTAP is a delay with two buffers. Each buffer features extensive controls for shaping the envelope of the delay sound, with another control set for glitchy pre-feedback repeats and warm pitch-bends.
Inspired by both the classic sounds of tape delays and by experiments in editing and splicing tape, TTAP features a dedicated Section control for determining the maximum length of time of the second buffer. Section also acts as a virtual LFO control, affecting a number of modulation parameters.
Both the Delay Time and Section controls in TTAP can either be synced to your DAW, or run free, providing up to 3.0 seconds of time for each. Try changing the speed while TTAP is running with high feedback for the expanding/contracting doppler sound familiar to any dub lover (or automate and randomize the process using the Bend control).

[…] the basic idea here is you get smooth or glitchy buffers warping around based on modulation and time you can control. There are some really beautiful effects possible
Peter Kirn – CDM
[…] using TTAP’s unconventional options to generate unusual spatio-temporal effects, it’s easy to coax highly compelling textural patterns unavailable in other delay plug-ins
Noah Pred – Ask Audio
WOV and TTAP […] are surprisingly powerful sound design and production tools, WOV delivering everything from rhythmic trance-gating and cool tremolo to smashed-up granular noises, and TTAP excelling at unusual dub-style delays, weird pitching effects and smooth, ambient echoing (we really love those envelopes).

In The Fade
Fade easily between two delay buffers, or jump to using one buffer exclusively with the click of a button.
Symbols and Text
Like other plugins in the Phoenix Series, TTAP uses a new graphical language for parameters. Click the symbol/text button to get text displays if you get lost!
In addition to control positions, the animations in TTAP give you essential information such as the mix between buffers, amount of feedback, time gap between buffers, and the envelope for each buffer.
Go By Feel
We encourage you to use your ears to know when a parameter is set just right with TTAP – but if you want a specific readout for any control, just click the control and check the upper-right corner of TTAP for the readout.
Glitch and Chance
In addition to the familiar feedback control, TTAP includes controls for randomized Repeats (synced to the Section time) for a glitchier sound. In addition, each of the buffers features a dedicated Reverse switch.
TTAP is part of Phoenix Series!!
The Phoenix Series from K-Devices uses classic effects as a springboard for deep and intuitive creative sound tools. Moving beyond K-Devices origins in Max for Live, the Phoenix Series plugins are available as VST, AU, and AAX, and work for a variety of instruments and styles. Capable of familiar effects as well as experimental and randomized sound shaping, the Phoenix Series is a new spin on essential plugins.
