This is a plug-in that is supposed to simulate analog delay. The setup for this plug-in was pretty much nonexistent, as it comes with each version of Pro Tools, or at least versions 8 and higher (I can't remember whether or not this particular plug-in comes with older versions of Pro Tools as I hadn't started using it as much until recently). That is the reason there is no price above, as there isn't a really accurate way to describe the cost. There were no compatibility issues with this plugin at all since it worked from the minute I started using Pro Tools at home. This plug-in is really easy to use since there are relatively few parameters.
I've never had too many problems with this plug-in. I do know, however, that you can't always open it in too many different locations, as it will slow down the computer. At least it does that on my setup, but mine has been known to slow down on occasion. I usually have to tweak the settings a bit to get the Pro Tools session to run quicker, though, so I doubt that this particular plug-in is the problem. I've been using this for a few months now and I usually have good results in terms of system performance, with the occasional hiccup that I previously mentioned.
It's got a wealth of controls, from a mix control, to delay time and feedback, to drive (gain), to a high pass filter. So it has all the basic controls plus a few little extras.
I really like the sound of this analog delay. Unlike other plug-ins which have a very clean and accurate sound, this plug-in actually modifies the sound of the track the way that a Moogerfooger analog delay unit (hardware) actually would in real life. Granted, it's not exactly the same, as there really is no way to 100% replicate the sound of an analog delay pedal. However, it's pretty darn close, and as a plug-in that comes with Pro Tools, it's quite useful. I'll often use it during sessions if the players/producers/clients can't determine what sound they want from a pedal (assuming that they have one to use). Otherwise it may well be a go-to plug-in for me, unless the client wants a cleaner, more digital sounding delay.
Bomb Factory’s MoogerFooger Analog Delay is a plug-in that is modeled after the Moog Analog Delay pedal, with pretty much the same make up. You can buy this plug-in either individually or within the MoogerFooger bundle. It comes in just about any plug-in format, but I’m currently running it as an RTAS plug-in in Pro Tools. It shouldn’t be difficult at all to install this plug-in on your machine, as installing this entire bundle on my iLok and my computer only took a short while. Most users shouldn’t encounter compatibility errors since there are versions of this plug-in for just about every system. The interface of the plug-in is also quite simple to understand, while still maintaining a good amount of control over your tone. The plug-in contains parameters for delay time, feedback, mix, output level, drive, and input level, as well as switches for choosing either a short or long delay and a high pass filter. I didn’t need the assistance of a manual to learn how to use this plug-in.
Right now I’m running the MoogerFooger Analog Delay plug-in in Pro Tools LE 8 that I run on a Mac Book Pro with 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I run Pro Tools LE 8 with a Digi 002R audio interface primarily, but will also run it with a Digidesign Micro Box if I’m on the go, and a Pro Tools HD system if I’m in the professional studio where I work. I always run this plug-in on an auxiliary channel to save processing power regardless of where I’m working from, but it doesn’t take up much computer power anyway. All systems are different, but as long as you have a system where you’re currently able to run your DAW and current plug-ins comfortably, you shouldn’t have a problem.
If I’m looking for a warmer type of delay sound in a plug-in, the Bomb Factory MoogerFooger Analog Delay is the first place I’ll look. I don’t use it as a traditional delay for a ping-pong or tap delay or anything like that, rather I use it mostly for slapback. The presets are great starting points, although it’s definitely not too difficult to get a good sound starting from scratch. If I’m looking for something a bit more subtle that doesn’t trail off, this is definitely my go to delay, and this is the type of sound that I usually go for. While this plug-in doesn’t touch the real Moogerfooger Analog Delay pedal, it’s still a great too to have around at this low cost…
