Incredible degree of sound-shaping freedom

Sigmund is far from just another delay: it consists of four discrete delay units, each with its own, independent set of parameters offering an incredible degree of sound-shaping freedom. There's an ancient saying, often attributed to Aristotle: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. With Sigmund, this is especially true: each of the delay lines has complementary modules built in, independent from the feedback loop:

  • Multi-mode Filter (can work either in or outside of the feedback loop)
  • Overdrive module
  • Amplitude modulator (for tremolo effects)

But that's not all: Sigmund has two general-purpose Modulators which can be used to auto-modulate some of the delay lines' internal parameters. There are three different modes a Modulator can operate in:

  • LFO - Used subtly on time parameter can delicately bring a sound to life, to add gently flowing, modulated warmth reminiscent of the analog delays of yesteryear. At extreme settings, the LFO is capable of twisting the input signal utterly beyond recognition and into what you might expect transmissions from an alien civilization to sound like!

  • Envelope - In combination with built-in Transient Detector gives you a very powerful tool; when applied on amplitude allows to freely shape sound’s dynamics to control how it blends in the whole mix..

  • Peak follower - It’s a must-have for a Modulator; nothing else will do such expressive wah-wah effect, when filter cutoff is influenced by. Surely in the hands of skilled sound designer it will have many other applications beyond that.

This all adds up to an immensely powerful architecture, the potential of which can be explored nearly endlessly and often with hardly predictable outcomes.

Multitude of purposes

Sigmund can be effortlessly applied in nearly any configuration in the studio. It can be used as an insert effect for an instrument or bus channel, or as a versatile send effect with the help of a parameter lock that allows for auditioning presets without having to readjust the wet/dry mix with each new selection. The plugin can be used universally not only as a delay, but also as a:

  • Tremolo
  • Filter
  • Limiter
  • Distortion

Each of these possibilities above is a result of the direct usage of the various modules that we have at our disposal in the processing path. But also indirectly, depending on parameter values, there are other possibilities, including:

  • Chorus – from small delay time values

  • Flanger – from small delays with feedback added

  • Spatializer – by applying delays on delay lines with different signal domains (M/S or L/R) and phase shifts between the channels

  • Mastering / Bus dynamic processor - Setting modulators working as transient triggerable envelopes affecting signal’s amplitude it’s possible to control the dynamics very precisely.

Despite all of the facts presented in this brief description, you get much, much more, because these are only examples of Sigmund's most basic operation. With the benefit of an incredibly flexible signal routing system, these simple strategies can be freely shuffled and combined for practically unlimited sound shaping depth. Things can go from basic to very advanced indeed before you know it, and more easily than you perhaps considered possible. And, all this in the highest available audio quality! This is only the start of wonderful sonic journey you’re about to embark on...
