Waves H-Delay is another workhorse in my sessions. I use it both during recording sessions and final mixing sessions. I like this delay plug-in because it takes 2-10 seconds to get the type of delay you want. If you have the session set to the tempo of the beat, then all it takes is hitting the host button which is conveniently in the middle of the plug-in for the delay to lock in with the tempo. I don’t ever really use the analog setting, I’m not a fan of the extra noise. I do enjoy the fact H-Delay has a hi-pass and lo-pass filer already on it. I use H-Delay in two different ways for vocals. If I need a simple 1/4 or 1/8 on specific words during a rappers verse, I’ll make a new track and duplicate those specific words onto that new track. On that new audio track I’ll slap the H-Delay on it. I’ll also add the H-Delay to overall vocals as a send from the vocals’ submix aux to add a certain feel or vibe. I’ll use the ‘rap vox’ preset and tweak from there. I use this delay on tracks in the spirit of Drake and Lil Wayne, where it’s an 808 heavy song and the rap vocals are delivered crisp and slowly… It helps to fill in the spaces. You can do a lot of creative effects by automating all the different settings in H-Delay; it helps that it’s parameters are controlled by knobs which makes it better for doing automation by touch. If you haven’t noticed, I am a fan of clean, simple and efficient.
