    Hi guys and girls,

    maybe you´ll find this interessting: after the „All Reverb Presets“, „All Stereo Delay Presets“ and „All Modulator Presets“ videos series, I went on and made a video on all presets of the the Bucket Brigade Delay.
    It costs $49. What do you think? Is it worth it? When would you use it over the Default Stereo Delay?

    Have fun and enjoy the video.

    Cheers,
    André

    @AndreS

    that is very subjective

    only you can tell if it is worth it to you

    best you can hope for is others experience with NFRs to use to guide your decision

    “best you can hope for is others experience with NFRs to use to guide your decision”

    Hi volunteer,

    that´s exaclty the reason, why I made this video and other of it´s kind. How do you like the sound of the BBD?

    CHeers,

    color me really olde.

    I prefer complete hifi without any of the fancy stuff that is supposed to sound ‘better’.
    YMMV

    My olde ears just cant hear the difference in most cases and the few others it does not like such things.

    Compression is about the only fx I use at home.
    I did have to use reverb when I did a CD for our church as the MD insisted on it:)

    Thankyou for sharing.
    These delays all take me back to using old analouge delays.
    And the A&H insignia on your hoodie…. yup I have a T shirt with that on.
    Nice man!
    Seasons greetings to you.

    Hi Andre,

    I bought it a few weeks ago but I’ve not had a proper opportunity to use it live yet as all gigs cancelled for now in the UK 😢

    The reason I got it is the Stereo Delay is occasionaly just a little too clean for some material where vocals in particular could benefit from some delay.

    I found the same as you – the ‘grit’ as you call it. A very slight degradation on the delay over time (I think!) which sounds very musical. It blends into the mix where the Stereo Delay can sometimes dominate a little even at low send/return levels. Try feeding the vocal AND the BBD return (perhaps at a slightly lower return level) into a reverb – it really comes to life then!

    Thanks for the video!

    Dave

    Hi Andre,

    I love using the BB delay to create a stereo spread for my lead guitar. I have used this on GLD and dLive for a long time, and was very happy when they brought it to SQ. Definitely a nice delay IMO. Would love to see the Dimension Chorus make it to SQ land.
