Entries found for search: delay line
delay line : Used to simulate an acoustic echo or reverberation. There exist both digital delay lines (DDL) and analog delay lines as well. The original delay lines were made by using tape recorders to record a signal while playing it back on the same machine. The distance between the record and reproduce heads causes a time delay; this technique is called tape delay. See tape delay.
delay line feedback : A type of modulation which creates a series of echoes when the modulation source is boosted. The greater the amount of feedback, the more repetitions of each echoed event.
digital delay line (DDL) : See delay line.
