Native Instruments has introduced REPLIKA XT which they describe as a creative multi-mode delay with five deeply modeled delay modes that span crisp digital repeats, analog warmth, and experimental textures. They say that, additionally, seven effects and advanced options allow producer's to add depth and width to their mixes with refined control. The plug-in is aimed at producer's who need an easy-to-use, all-in-one studio delay for echoes, special effects, and production tricks. Here's more details in NI's own words
REPLIKA XT was inspired by some of the most revered delays in history. The plug-in features five delay modes, each with its own distinct character. Modern provides clean, precise, controllable repeats. Vintage Digital offers warm, repeats modeled after early samplers and digital delays. Analog replicates the sound of analog bucket-brigade pedals. Tape provides the punchy, smooth sound of classic tape echo units. Finally, Diffusion Mode provides swirling reverberant echoes unlike any physical space.
REPLIKA XT features a clear interface that makes even complex effects fast and easy to create. Pattern controls allow producers to create rhythmic repeats that shift organically with the music. Panning for each delay line as well as the dry signal allows a custom stereo image. The ducking feature keeps percussive hits tight while still adding space to a drum mix. Together, the controls on REPLIKA XT's intuitive panel provide uncompromising control with a minimum of effect.
