Le Masque :Delay lets you specify in a very accurate way which part or parts of the dry signal will be processed by the Delay unit and its components and modulators.
The Masked zones of the grid are processed by the Delay Unit, while all the audio data outside of the Masks remain unchanged.
The Grid is synced to your Daw, or to its internal clock.
Here are a few examples of how UNIQUE and MUSICAL Le Masque:Delay is
Working on loops or recorded material and tracks
Extracting and modifying specific part of a Drum loop ( or any other loop )
You can apply delay on the snares only, or to one particular snare hit in the groove, then modulate it in real time via the mod wheel and/or any other other auto-modifiers like loopable envelope or LFO.
You can extract the HH and modify their groove, change the bass drum only groove, turn delayed bass drums into Simmons Toms while totally preserving the quality of the original audio, add delay to specific parts of the groove, and even build on the fly impressive breaks, rolls or fills. All this in real time. In a fast, intuitive, creative way.
Le Masque :Delay is the perfect tool to revive and add creative control over all your existing loop arsenal, or live recordings.
Composing directly with Le Masque:Delay :
Le Masque :Delay can change the way you will play live a funky guitar riff, an ambient keyboard, or a pulsating electro bass or lead line.

Soon you'll discover that you don't play your part in the same way anymore, as Le Masque :Delay becomes gradually a part of the composition process
