Introducing DelayCat, the ultimate audio delay plugin for creating novel and unique texture and delay-based effects. By combining a delay line with feature extraction audio analysis and concatenation synthesis techniques (analysis-based "guided" granular synthesis), DelayCat allows you to explore endless possibilities in sound manipulation. Whether you're looking to add depth and richness to your tracks or experiment with avant-garde audio effects, DelayCat is the perfect tool for the job. With its intuitive interface and powerful features, this plugin is a must-have for any audio engineer or music producer looking to push the boundaries of creativity. Elevate your music production with DelayCat and discover a whole new world of audio effects.

What's The Big Idea?

Concatenative Synthesis  

is a method of synthesis for creating new sounds from short pieces, or segments, of audio. This process resembles granular synthesis but offers more control through feature analysis based selection of the grains (segments).


DelayCat is a unique tool that combines concatenative synthesis with a delay line. It works by analyzing and breaking down your sound into segments in real-time. Then, it uses these segments to create new delayed sounds, selecting segments with a special algorithm incorporating delay time.


With DelayCat, you can make all kinds of effects, from regular delays to completely new textures. It gives you more control over your sound, mixing the best parts of regular delays and concatenative synthesis into a unique blend.


DelayCat can also use the analysis data for things like figuring out when a sound starts (onset detection) and intelligent automation of different parts of the delay.

DelayCat was published and presented at the International Conference for Digital Audio Effects (DAFx) in 2023 during the early development of the plugin. The technical research paper is publicly available via the DAFx archive.
