Overview

Incredible degree of sound-shaping freedom

Four independent delay lines

Sigmund is far from just another delay: it consists of four discrete delay units, each with its own, independent set of parameters offering an incredible degree of sound-shaping freedom. There's an ancient saying, often attributed to Aristotle: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. With Sigmund, this is especially true: each of the delay lines has complementary modules built in, independent from the feedback loop:

  • Multi-mode Filter (can work either in or outside of the feedback loop)
  • Overdrive module
  • Amplitude modulator (for tremolo effects)

But that's not all: Sigmund has two general-purpose Modulators which can be used to auto-modulate some of the delay lines' internal parameters. There are three different modes a Modulator can operate in.

Flexible routing

Sigmund's four delay lines can be interconnected with each other in practically every manner possible. The plugin offers a choice of nine different routing topologies which give access to completely new dimensions of sound creation. For even greater convenience when working with Sigmund, the output signals of each of the four delay lines are combined in a special, purpose-built internal mixer to ensure seamless transition between algorithms and greatly speed workflows.

Outstanding quality

The signal processing solutions we chose to implement in Sigmund have allowed us to achieve an unprecedented level of audio quality! A signal being routed sequentially through each processing block suffers no loss in fidelity from one to the next and no undesirable artifacts are introduced as is so often the case with some of the more widely used but inferior solutions. With Sigmund, each delay line is absolutely alias free: the only sonic colorations you'll ever hear are the ones you've intentionally created.

Intuitive design

Sigmund's user interface has been designed from the ground up to be as intuitive as possible. Everything is presented as if on a silver (or brushed aluminum) platter, cleanly and clearly laid out and with instant access to each section and it's parameters. A convenient preset browser allows for quick auditioning of the extensive, included factory preset library. This, in combination with a novel system of padlocks for locking individual sets of parameters when changing presets, allows you to zero in on the desired effect with extreme efficiency. In skilled hands, these features become powerful weapons.

Multitude of purposes

Sigmund can be effortlessly applied in nearly any configuration in the studio. It can be used as an insert effect for an instrument or bus channel, or as a versatile send effect with the help of a parameter lock that allows for auditioning presets without having to readjust the wet/dry mix with each new selection. The plugin can be used universally not only as a delay, but also as a:

  • Tremolo
  • Filter
  • Limiter
  • Distortion

Each of these possibilities above is a result of the direct usage of the various modules that we have at our disposal in the processing path. But also indirectly, depending on parameter values, there are other possibilities, including:

  • Chorus – from small delay time values
  • Flanger – from small delays with feedback added
  • Spatializer – by applying delays on delay lines with different signal domains (M/S or L/R) and phase shifts between the channels
  • Mastering / Bus dynamic processor - Setting modulators working as transient triggerable envelopes affecting signal’s amplitude it’s possible to control the dynamics very precisely.

Despite all of the facts presented in this brief description, you get much, much more, because these are only examples of Sigmund's most basic operation.
