Adam Monroe's Delay is a free VST AAX and AU effect plugin for Windows and OS X. There are many free and commercial delay effect plugins, but I wanted to make my own unique delay. Interesting features of this plugin include:

*ping-pong panning that is synced to the delay time, so that each delay sounds like an echo sweeping from left to right.
* built in high and low pass filtering, so that the frequency of the delay can be filtered, well leaving the original dry signal intact.
* mix, panning, and panning-width controls.

The end goal was to make a highly parameterized delay plugin that could emulate some of the classic delay sounds like slapback, as well as create new and interesting effects, and package them in a comprehensive preset list and GUI, that the end user could easily navigate.

The development of this plugin was restricted to the delay effect itself. Early on, the idea of a "time stretching" delay effect you might find on some digital and analog delay pedals as you change the delay time - for example, the rimshots on the Bauhaus song "Bella Lugosi's Dead" - was toyed with, but due to developmental restraints was ommitted from the final version of the plugin. Future versions of this plugin might include this feature.
