DOS & DON’TS
DO: Experiment with filtering your delayed signal. This can give the original signal room to breathe while still keeping the perceptual ‘feel’ of the delay
DON’T: Dive into tweaking feedback unless you’ve got a limiter engaged. Many delay processors have them in-built for just this reason, but is yours switched on?
DO: Pan your delayed signals, and specifically, modulate that panning! By getting things moving instead of relying on static repeats, you’ll get a real sense of evolution, and a much wider sense of organic movement
DON’T: Just stick to your DAW’s stock delay plugin. It may be great, but there are plenty more tonalities to be found with a varied collection of tools
