Good sounding digital delay

The HoRNet DeeLay is a good sounding vintage digital dub delay, it’s capable of common delay duties and it’s also up to the most demanding creative tasks.


The vintage button gives the HoRNet DeeLay that typical early 90s sound where digital was still imperfect and with a character of its own.

The DeeLay can make endless feedback loops and changing the delay time changes the pitch of the buffer creating funny and interesting noises, the time parameter can be modulated with an LFO allowing the creation of futuristic wobbling sounds.

Since the delay is digital it has all the robotic artifacts of modulated digital delays instead of the smooth action of an analog emulated delay.

Try it on vocals, guitars or anything that needs space, the HoRNet DeeLay will surprise you with it’s spacey yet focused sound.


Vintage character

In the early 90s digital was still imperfect and many devices where limited yet still had a character. The HoRNet DeeLay incorporates that character, when the “vintage” button is turned on, using 12bit degradation of our high resolution recordings for its internal workings. Of course any digital device has an analog front end, so the “vintage” button also add saturation.

Endless loop creativity

When the feedback is set to 100% the HoRNet DeeLay enters in an endless loop mode when the level of the delay never decays over time, this is especially useful if you want to create futuristic sounds changing the time parameter, because changing the time on a playing delay changes the pitch of the delay!
Things get even funnier when you use the LFO to modulate the time, you don’t have to keep your feedback to 100%, just distort and repitch the delay and have fun.


The demo is fully functional except for the fact that every now and then it will silence out, you cannot save parameter values with your session and the plugin will not respond to automation coming from the host.

Copy protection

The HoRNet DeeLay has no copy protection, I don’t believe in copy protection, they are always cracked and they are annoying for the users, we all know you are not going to give away the plugin on the internet…

So simply download the plugin and enjoy your recordings!

Exelente Ótima qualidade. Grato

K-Mac says:

It's super simple and super fun. The presets are ok but going off the reservation is where this plugin slaps.

Richard Piontek says:

Sounds nice, gives you easy and clean this horror movie delay sound of the past

Craig Wood says:

Really nice sounding but a pity it is missing sync timings like dotted.

ELF says:

Very good Delay !

admin says:

You can sync DeeLay to the host simply choosing the number of 16th you want to use for the sync from the dropdowns

Russell says:

Straight forward, no hassle. The inclusion of a " sync to host tempo" feature is the missing cherry on top.

Keith Holden says:

This delay does exactly what it says on the tin….You can create wonderful spaces with it, I use it along side the Lexicon reverbs and some UAD reverbs and it holds its own.. lovely little plugin to have in your FX arsenal.

Lauri Pallonen says:

Simple delay with budget friendly price. Even though it's simple, there's enough depth when you want more than basic pong pong.
My go to -delay for basic delay needs.
