Eventide DDL-500 500 Series Digital Delay Module

A digital delay line with an analog soul.

The DDL-500 features 10 seconds of pristine delay at a 192 kHz sample rate and a unique design that strictly limits the amount of digital circuitry to the bare minimum. Soft saturation clipping, low pass filter, feedback, insert loop, relay bypass, and +20 dB boost are all analog.

“500 series is, by and large, analog and we thought long and hard about introducing a digital product to that world. Our mantra was “as analog as possible,’ said RM. “The DDL-500s digital circuitry was kept to a minimum – just the chips necessary for delay. All of the other sound-shaping features are implemented in the analog domain. The design goal was to create a digital delay with an analog soul.”

Delay time can be varied smoothly either manually or by connecting an LFO to the remote input allowing short delays to be used for comb filter and flanging effects. The DDL-500 is also capable of extremely long delays (up to 160 seconds at a 16 kHz sample rate) allowing long passages to be captured for looping.

From short delays for double tracking, to ridiculously long delays for whatever reason, to creating swept delay and tape echo class effects, the DDL-500 brings it all in a single 500 series slot.
