The use of delay as an audio and musical effect that has been used since the coming of tape recordings. It involves the signal being taken and “stored” then played back at a later time, either once or multiple times. In modern western music, it is hard to find a song that does not use some form of delay in their mix which is why it is important to create a user friendly, great sounding, accurate delay. A real delay is caused when a sound wave reflects off a surface and because of the extra time taken to get to the receiver (the ear) it has a lagged effect. Their use in the musical realm has been taken to a new level with the use of parameter settings and modulation types, the average Joe can easily create his or her own effect to suit their specific needs.
