DELAZI by Samsara – Host Sync-able Delay Effect

VST Free Delazi Samsara

Glad to be bringing you this special Virtual Effect today from Samsara Cycle Audio! DELAZI is a vintage-look BPM Sync-able Delay effect. Classic old school knobs and look on this one. Bright interface, I like that the knobs look like something off some vintage science equipment, or some real obscure audiophile type kit. Fun stuff. If you want to feel like you’re banging on real hardware while pushing on your touchscreen and making obscure noises, I really can’t blame you. It’s a good look; Great times, especially with friends and inebriants. But I digress…

This particular unit consists of 3 separate delay settings that get routed to 2 independent (mono) channels. Each channel has its own separate feedback control. The default mode is to tune each delay with by time, but by activating the optional Host Sync you can change to BPM sync mode. There is a convenient Wet/Dry mix on this unit, so if your Digital Audio Workstation does not support Insert channels this could be a lifesaver. This would include Audacity, the free and open-source audio workstation. However, nearly all digital audio workstations at this point in time do support insert channels, including Ableton Live!, Reaper, Apple’s Logic, Image-Line’s FL Studio (all editions), Cubase, and pretty much any other major competitor you can think of. If you use one of these Digital Audio Workstations, and you have never tried using Insert effects with them – you owe it to yourself to try them out. They can be massively useful when mixing, especially with delays, reverbs and distortion. In my opinion these type of effects are best when they are fine tuned. With Insert channels, this becomes transparent in most DAWs, and in some (Ableton has a great implementation, in my humble opinion) it is brilliantly easy way to get fine-tuned control.

One issue I have with this VST is the interface is quite cluttered. The impact of this is lessened slightly because the model looks like classic hardware, and seems a bit familiar. This is a *free* VST that gives decent delay effects however, so I will spare my detailed criticism and summarize by saying that for the price, this delay unit much more than delivers. Worth a download, give it a try; And have fun with it!
