2015 Version released January 2015
The PT Delay is a highly characterful delay processor built around the infamous PT2399 chip. It does not aim to compete with clever modern delays (so no microprocessor, tap-tempo, beat-sync, etc.) and instead presents a unique hands-on affair for textural sonic play. With soft-clipping stages, voltage-controlled delay time, powerful equalisation and a true analogue approach, the PT Delay can produce tones akin to tape delays or gnarl down into degraded digital territories. Stand distinct!
The first PT Delay was released in 2011. When I decided to tweak the design 'just a bit' it ended up taking many months and 10+ prototypes to reach the next stage, but, arriving in mid-2013, the (original) PT Delay Standard ushered in a new era as the first of my 'red module' format designs.
The 2015 version has had just a few small tweaks to bring it into line with my other current designs:
- CV input is now 4mm banana with polarizing Depth control [1/4" Pedal control versions can be custom made - £5 extra]
- Mute controls changed to toggle switches
- Input and Output standardisation including Impedance-balanced Outputs
- Improved bass response on the delay path
- DCDC power conversion is now 'offboard' so the design is a true 'module' (allowing future system integration)
Input - Mono unbalanced 1/4" Jack - impedance 66k Ohms
Outputs - Mono Impdeance-balanced 1/4" Jack - impedance 680 Ohms
CV - 4mm Banana - impedance 100k Ohms
Power - 12V DC 500mA supply, centre-positive, 2.1mm connector.
(worldwide 90-240VAC wall-wart provided with interchangeable mains plug adaptors)
The PTDelay is enclosed in a custom aluminium case (based on the Modular line) with PCB material front and side panels.
Dimensions approx 5.25" x 5" x 3.5"

These merchants probably sell this module. Huh?
