Not a delay setting per se', but a type of delay, be it a plug (Waves, Sonitus, Blue Tubes, Lexicon, Kjaerhus, etc) or even perhaps an actual outboard model, and any reasons you prefer one over another. Although, your preferences as to what delay settings you like on particular instruments or scenarios is more than welcome as well! There are times I don't always reach for reverb, and instead use a delay - depending of course on the application - but I find that in many scenarios, delay can work better at adding a certain space/depth to a track than reverb does, as I find that from time to time, reverb can be detrimental to the "definition" and "clarity" of parts/instruments/tracks. I'm not really talking about echo/delay used in the "classic" sense where it's an obvious effect (Us...us....us...us... and Them...them...them...them...) I'm referring more to amounts and types that can add subtle spatial or depth qualities in place of reverb - things like doubling, panning different delays, vocals, or guitar, or strings, etc., and if you ever EQ the delay so that it's darker, or maybe has more sparkle,... those types of things. There is no right or wrong answer, this is just a thread posted for fun to see what members are using and how they use it. What say you?
