Sandman from Unfiltered Audio is a delay plug-in that on the surface appears like a regular delay processor with all the basic parameters. Host syncable delay time and ping-pong feedback, along with a wet/dry mix and a filter for flanging, comb filtering, or adding string-like texture to percussive sounds. The sample rate parameter can add vintage grime, or decimate a sound by lowering the sample rate of the DSP engine, and an adjacent "Dirt" switch delivers the characteristic sound of a lo-fi recording.
However, it is the "Sleep" button that engages the deeper aspects of the plug-in. When activated, audio can be frozen at any point in time to create a loop based on the delay value, with the ability to adjust the sample start and end points. Long delay values can produce beat-repeats or stutter effects, while shorter values turn the plug-in into what is essentially a wavetable synthesizer. The start and end times can even overlap each other, reversing the sample by up to 100%.
Dropping the sample rate and delay time while sleep is engaged essentially creates granular synthesis. Several parameters can be modulated by a syncable LFO section, while an advanced de-clicking algorithm ensures clean edges, no matter how much mayhem ensues. If things get out of hand, a kill switch returns the process to "normal" functioning.
"Sleep" function creates locked loops by freezing the delay buffer, allowing the start and end time to be manipulated by up to 100%
Sample rate parameter directly controls the time-frequency domain of the sample, slowing or re-pitching the sound
Dual LFOs allow bipolar modulation of nearly every parameter
"Dirt" switch for some gritty vintage effect
Ping-pong mode for stereo effects
Wet/Dry mix for parallel processing
Granulate or reverse loops, then mangle or morph them into a completely different sound
Add fluttery spring echo or silky ambience with time, feedback, and filter controls in mono or stereo
Create warps and warbles for sound design or live performance
Delay times from 5 ms to 5 sec—up to 8 minutes available by adjusting the sample rate
