Delay Module

Hello Forum,

Lately I have been playing with using the delay module from the FXBook on Left and Right channels separately with different delay times.

I was playing with it, using 100% wet so I could use it as an effect, but the greater the ms time, the quieter the channel gets.

E.g 1ms = almost the same, 30ms far far quieter.

I was just wondering what I am missing? Or could someone point me in the direction of delaying the channel in samples e.g 44 samples (1ms) or 304 samples (7ms), which would probably be more sensible, but the reason behind the channel getting quiter is just annoying me because when both are the sample delay times, it doesn't change the sound, but just delays it, duh.

Kind Regards,

So I have revised the chapter, and used the the delay module with parameters of Delay Time, 0 Feedback, and 100 Wet Signal.

I have found that greater the MS of delay, E.g 2 seconds, 2000ms, the delay gain / RMS is effected.


When using two, one with say; 30ms and one with 200ms, even playing each signal out separately (making the opposite = 0)
the volume changes vary between the two channels. Resulting in a lopsided result when playing out both channels, which isn't a primary phase issue!

Has anyone else had problems with this?

Hi Alex,

I don't really understand what your problem is. A delay line is not really doing anything but delaying the input signal. So there should not be a volume drop. Are you talking about code you wrote? Could you post your delay code?
