4ms Company Dual Looping Delay

Digital delay Eurorack module with 88 second of max delay time
MFR# DLD

Product Description

The 4ms Dual Looping Delay (DLD) is an advanced audio processor for creative synthesis. Not a tape or analog emulation but a modern crystal-clear digital delay, the DLD combines features of delay, looping, and sample-tight synchronization for powerful and dynamic sound capture and modification. The DLD is designed to integrate seamlessly with modular timebase and sequencing devices such as the 4ms Quad Clock Distributor (QCD), etc.

What is a "Looping Delay"?

Modern looping devices grew directly from hardware digital delays of the late 70s and early 80s. A looping delay, modeled on units such as the classic Lexicon PCM42, has the very long storage times associated with dedicated looping, but without triggered record and playback functions.By default, a looping delay records and plays continuously, though recording can be suspended at any time with Infinite Repeat. Sustain of delays and loops is mainly accomplished with regeneration, allowing an organic, evolving approach to sound creation as new material replaces old, more or less gradually. The 4ms Dual Looping Delay also provides advanced clock input and output facilities that allow for locking delayed and looped material with sequencers and rhythmic devices

Features:

  • Two independent delay/loop channels, synchronized to a common time base
  • Almost 3 minutes delay/loop time per channel (2:54) in default storage mode (16-bit)
  • 48kHz/16-bit sampling rate, option available for 24-bit storage
  • Extremely quiet, low noise and low jitter design
  • Normaled connections of input and output for flexible use in mono, stereo, or dual mode
  • Tap tempo button and clock Ping input set the basis for one "beat"
  • Delay/loop time set as a number of musical beats (or fractions of beats) using the Time knob, switch, and CV jack
  • Sample-accurate clock output for perfect synchronization
  • Loop clock outputs for each channel
  • Time switches change range of Time knob from 1/8th notes up to 32 bars
  • Digital feedback, up to 110%
  • Delay Level control, independent of dry/wet signal mix
  • Infinite Hold mode disables recording input and fixes regeneration at exactly 100%
  • Reverse mode plays memory contents backwards
  • With an infinite loop locked, knobs or CV can "window" around memory, by shifting the loop
  • Triggered toggle inputs for Infinite Hold and Reverse
  • Send and Return on each channel for feedback with external modules
  • CV jacks to control Time, Level, and Feedback
  • As new features are developed, firmware can be updated by playing an audio file into the DLD
  • 20HP Eurorack module

Specs:

  • 20 HP Eurorack format module
  • 0.98" (25mm) maximum depth with power cable
  • Power consumption:
  • +12V rail: 188mA max (jumper set to 5V)
  • -12V rail: 48mA max
  • +5V rail: not used
  • Connect red stripe of power cable towards the bottom of the module, which is marked with a white stripe and the words -12V and POWER
  • Audio Inputs
  • 0Hz (DC) to 24kHz
  • 16.8V peak-to-peak maximum before clipping (when AC coupled)
  • Optional jumper to choose DC or AC coupling on input.
  • Audio Outputs
  • 0Hz (DC) to 24kHz with maximum -1.7dB difference between input and output (see technical specification section)
  • +10.5V to -10.5V maximum output
  • Soft limiting compression allows for saturation before clipping (can be disabled)
  • Clock outputs (Main, Loop A, Loop B):
  • 0V to 8.2V
  • +/- 2.4us maximum jitter (i.e. 0.001% at 120 BPM)
  • Rise or Fall time: <1us
  • Pulse Width (Trigger mode) 22ms
  • Gate mode 50% (square wave)
  • At clock speeds faster than 22Hz, the clock output becomes 50% duty cycle

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Alan B.
