You can run DelSane as a traditional delay in mono or stereo, with access to your usual fare of delay controls. On top of that, DelSane offers a few interesting parameters that favour a more creative focus.
One control that stands out is the Disrupt slider, situated in the centre of the plug-in. This controls a cocktail of parameters that can quickly net you some wild sounds. Its default setting – which snaps the control back to the centre – lets you either ramp up the effect slowly or in short, eccentric bursts. There’s also a Lazy Mode, which sets up oscillation at a pre-determined rate.
DelSane’s two filters – a high-pass and a low-pass – are also unique. Both of these have been designed for vocals and have vowel and frequency controls. Meanwhile, a frequency shift parameter allows you to ‘pitch’ the output downwards or upwards.
Finally, Audio Follower options let you tie one parameter to another, opening a host of options for live and production purposes.

DelSane is going for an introductory price of €29/$29 (usually €35/$35).
