We’re trying out this new-ish (new to me) McDSP EC-300 delay plugin. I haven’t used it yet, I’ve just heard lots of good things, and as you know, I like to showcase things that are really good! This delay plugin has been recommended to me by about 10 people so far.
I do love quite a few different delay plugins, so I’m going to remove those and swap them out with the McDSP EC-300, try it in the same situations, and see how it sounds in the mix.
About the EC-300 (from the McDSP website)
The EC-300 Echo Collection brings the sounds of dozens of echo and chorus effects into a single plug-in. The three delay types – Magnetic, Digital, and Analog – come with a generous collection of user controls, plenty of character modes, highly stylized visual feedback, and McDSP’s nearly two decades of gear modeling experience.
Each EC-300 delay type comes with additional character modes to create new and unique sounds. Other delay features include adjustable saturation, wow and flutter, delay output ducking, in-loop filtering and EQ, and level control at the input and output stages. The EC-300 can operate in single, dual, and ping-pong modes, and delay time can be synced to session playback or to a tapped tempo.
