Tapographic Delay

the tapographic delay is a complex multi-tap delay in the eurorack format with a unique interface designed for live performance. it excels at transforming the simplest audio (a drone, a percussive sound) into complex rhythmic structures, meshes of organic textures, lush harmonic mille-feuilles, liquid and resonant effects.

have you ever got tired of the monotonous repetitions that your standard delay pedal/module produced? have you ever wished for a more complex rhythmic structure than just decaying repetition? if yes, you have come to the right place: the tapographic delay is an advanced effect that lets you handle repetition in a completely novel way. it is to a traditional delay what a full rhythmic sequencer (with pattern recall, velocity control, tactile input) is to a simple clock. with the td, you interactively define the rhythm that the repetitions will follow: a velocity-sensitive sensor allows you to record, edit, modify, and sequence your own arrangements of delays. in a sense, the td is the converse of the classic frippertronics sound-on-sound setup popularized by robert fripp in the 70's: you don't play the guitar, you play the tape loop!

the tapographic delay is an expressive experimental instrument meant to be played in real-time, rather than a set-and-forget end-of-chain effect. interact with it! experiment! push it to its limits!
