Here’s a straightforward technique to get a quality stereo delay sound within about 30 seconds.
The technique Joe’s demonstrating here can work with a variety of DAW plug-ins. (He’s using Groove Delay.) Essentially, you want any type of delay that provides multiple taps, and you’re going to use two of them.
In the video, Joe provides examples and quickly builds a sample, and he also addresses related aspects of the technique.
Give it a try on your next mix!
