The Pitchdelay is a software simulation of a digital pitch shifter/delay effect pedal. It simulates the echo of a sound in an acoustic space by recording the input signal into a buffer and playing it back after a set time, optionally feeding it back into the buffer, generating a series of decaying echoes. It can also play the buffer back at different speeds, thus shifting the pitch of the echo. It lets you add a shimmering ambiance or presence to a sound and simulate a detuned unison or flange/chorus effect. It also lets you create rhythmic as well as harmonic, pseudo-arpeggiated patterns when used with sounds of short duration. It provides controls to set the amount of echoes, their separation in time and shift in pitch, the wet/dry signal mix, as well as apply or bypass the effect. The Pitchdelay is normally used as a send effect.
