Analogue Systems RS-440 Analogue Delay Module

Details

The Analogue Systems RS-440 Analogue Delay Module is a compact monophonic analogue delay with a 3328 stage bbd chip and offers a single delay range with CV control and attenuators for delay time, resonance as well as a dry/wet mix. The RS-440 also has the ability to create a simple chorus effect as well. The Analogue Systems Delay Module is perfect for someone wanting a simple, easy to use delay module providing you with 75ms to 200ms delay time when no CV is applied. However, the delay range can be extended from 50ms to 2000ms by applying CV in the range +/-10V.

Analogue Delays

A BBD is considered to have a smaller bandwidth and shorter maximum delay time unlike digital delays. Even with analogue delays producing more drastic artifacts with a longer delay time, it gives analogue delays their own sound and unique charm that can't be recreated with digital delays. BBD-based effects have a reputation as being not so good shall we say with the way they introduced all manner of distortions and also being prone to generate horrendous internal feedback loops. However, this can be considered a desired effect for some people who love to mangle their sounds and can be seen as an important tool that can expand the range of sounds that can be produced from your synths and other sound sources.

Delay Times

The Analogue Systems RS-440 features delay time control ranging between 75ms to 500ms without CV and 50ms to 2000ms with CV. Once delays above 300ms are used the clock signal becomes audible as a high pitched whistle but can removed using a low pass filter if required or the whistle can be used for added effect with the delay. Regarding delay times above 500ms these higher delay times are most useful as special effects due to reduced audio quality.

Resonance

The RS-440 has positive feedback from its output to its input so as you start to increase the amount of feedback with the resonance control then the unit will feed a larger and larger amount from the output to the input. With the resonance at minimum the delay module has no feedback but once you feed a single click into the unit it will generate a single delay. By turning up the resonance a succession of clicks can be heard. When the resonance knob is set towards the middle and maximum position the delay signals begin to stay and not slowly fade away, and finally when the resonance is positioned towards the max amount then the Rs-440 begins to self oscillate and produce a complex tone even without an input.
