Bleep Labs The Delaydelus Sampler Delay

   (0 reviews)

The Delaydelus is a sampler with a built in delay. Each pin is a sample. The buttons are used to trigger whatever pin is connected to that buttons pin. For example if the first pin, P1, is connected with the alligator clip wire to pin “A”, the A button on the left will play that sample. If P1 is connected to P2 and A1 then the A button will play both samples at the same time. Up to four samples can be triggered at once.

Pitch is adjusted with the knob on the left. When it’s at 12 o’clock the sample pays back at normal speed. As you go counter-clockwise from there the playback will go slower until it starts going in reverse. Turning the knob clockwise from the center will increase the playback rate.


The internal delay is controlled with two knobs. The middle knob controls how long the delay is, from just a few microseconds at full clockwise to about a second at full counter-clockwise.

The feedback amount is controlled by the right knob. When the knob is all the way counter-clockwise the delay is off. As you turn clockwise the feedback increases. At 3 o’clock the feedback is infinite. Past that it’s amplified and starts to go crazy.


The mode button steps through the four modes, indicated by the color of the LED in the middle, in this order:

Blue Mode – Play

This is the default mode the device starts with when turned on. Connect a sample pin to a button pin to play that sample. Hold shift and hit a button to lock a button and keep the sample looping. Hit shift or the button again to stop it.

Green Mode – Mod

This mode can be used to trigger and amplitude modulate the samples. Hit shift to toggle between the two methods. In trigger mode the samples connected to the A pin are played whenever the input audio is peaking.
In AM mode the input signal is combined with all samples being played.

Red Mode- Record

This is how you record your own samples. You will not be overwriting a default sample, just replacing it on the selected pin.

Purple mode- Through

In this mode the samples will not be accessible but the audio coming into the device will be affected by the delay.
By default the input audio will be muted when you hit the left button. You can change this to the opposite by pressing the shift button.
