Free Plugin Of The Week – Nasty DLA

Seems like it was just last week I listed my top 5 delay plugins, well now I’ve got a new favorite. Nasty DLA is the new chorus delay device from the ever awesome developer Bootsy.

Nasty DLA

This plug sounds as good as it looks. I’ve already used it with success for vocals in a mix. It sounds fantastic on my favorite synths like V-Station. This can be as clean or as dirty as you want it, it’s pretty flexible. Looks like this is going to be my most used delay.

I only have 2 small complaints with this and Bootsy’s other great effects. 1- No mousewheel control of knobs (yeah most fx are like that) and 2- No Mac version.

If you’re on a PC you’ve got to try this!

Get it here:

Plug-in specification:

  • input stage model including signal coloration and non-linearities (switchable)
  • classic chorus/flanger effect with amount and rate control which automatically adopts to the delay line configuration
  • frequency balancing filter for dead-easy overall tone adjustments in the feedback path
  • two different feedback color modes
