Is there some way to:

  • add micro-delay to device stack;
  • adjust delay for individual devices;
  • or create desired effect by using an existing device?

I want to make metallic sounding by summing time-shifted audio, and didn't find any possibility to do this without using external VSTs (which tbh is not good - external VSTs add complexity and dependency).

Comb filters and Delay-2 are pretty close as alternatives, however comb filter is fundamentally a different effect, and Delay-2 doesn't allow for very tight delays (lower than 10ms).

UPD: Comb filter actually does what I want, I just didn't know :)

Related question: Delay 2 manual only goes down to 10ms

Comb filters work fine for this kind of effect. Also try blur.

Ah, thanks for pointing out, I've just googled comb filter and it does exactly what I want.

Sometimes things sound the same because they are the same ;)

I also appreciate the fact that the comb filter has negative feedback, which both delay-1 and 2 lack.
