U-He has released Colour Copy, a virtual analog effect inspired by classic bucket-brigade delays (BBD), but extended with modern features. This is what they have to say about it...
"We called our new baby Colour Copy because it can deliver the kind of colouration people still love in classic BBD units, but with a wider variety of colours. Colour Copy started life as the little delay unit called Lyrebird we built into Repro-1, but the sound was too good not to be developed further and become an FX plug-in.
In most digital delays the delay time alters the size of the buffer. If you quickly modulate or sweep the delay time on a typical digital unit, unmusical glitches propagate through the feedback as the buffer is shortened or lengthened. Like a real BBD, Colour Copy changes the internal sample rate instead (i.e. how fast the 'buckets' pass on their content), and this is why Colour Copy is smooth with a capital SMOO!"
