Overview

Cooper® Time Cube Mk II Delay Plug-In

Unique, Garden Hose-Based Mechanical Delay Device, Captured as a Plug-In

The original Cooper Time Cube was a Duane H. Cooper and Bill Putnam collaborative design that brought a garden hose-based mechanical delay to the world in 1971, and has achieved cult status as the most unique delay ever made. The Cooper Time Cube is famous for its spectacular short delay and doubling effects and its uncanny ability to sit perfectly in the mix. The new Cooper Time Cube MkII has all the sound of the original delay system, while offering modern delay device features: Delay, Decay, Pan and Volume controls plus Tempo Sync and Automation for each of two independent delay lines.

The original CTC had limited practicality as a full-featured delay; only 14, 16 or 30 ms settings were available. Over the years, this quirky device has grown a strong following and finds a home in the most prestigious studios in the world, such as Blackbird and Sunset Sound. Top producers and engineers such as Richard Dodd, Vance Powell and Joe Chicarelli still swear by the Cooper Time Cube for its unique character.>

The distinct sound of the single or double hose Coil is preserved regardless of delay setting, and either sound is available at the flick of a switch. The Cooper time Cube MkII also incorporates other enhanced tone shifting features such as the Color switch that presents the user with the original (A) or “leveled” (B) frequency response, plus tone controls and a 2-Pole High Pass Filter. Lastly, a switch is presented for soloing the Wet signal and the Send switch allows momentary interruption of the signal being sent into the delay system.

    (Beck)

    "One of my favorites [UAD Plug-Ins] is the Cooper Time Cube ... Much easier than bringing thru a box with garden hoses inside."

    Garrett Haines

    (Tape Op Magazine)

    "Should mix engineers buy this [Manley Massive Passive] plug-in? YES. If they don’t have a UAD-2, should they buy one just for this plug-in? YES. You’re also going to want a license for the FATSO and Cooper Time Cube as well."

    Paul White

    (Sound On Sound)

    "The sound you get from this [Cooper Time Cube] sits very well in a mix, lending a nice, vintage, homogenous character."

    Paul White

    (Sound On Sound)

    "[Cooper Time Cube, EMT 250, or FATSO] ... for the real vintage character, I don't think UA have any rivals at the moment."

    Jono Buchanan

    (Future Music UK)

    "It's perfect to create a width around your tracks, adding subtle space and depth while creating thickness with ease."

  • (Computer Music UK)

    "The [Cooper Time Cube] has a sound that you'd struggle struggle to achieve with a regular delay."

    Best delay - period.
    by L. Hughes (Sunday 19 May, 2013)

    Just love this plugin. I have a few different delays, but this one is overall the best and often come back to this after trying others. The immediacy of it makes it a breeze to use and it just sounds great! Never used the original so can't comment on it's authenticity but who cares! I use it on voca … Read More

    Nice Time.
    by M. Walker (Friday 17 May, 2013)

    Nice sounding delay, good for the usual subtle delay stuff, great slap back but if you go mad with it you can get some great looping effects, it becomes a bit of an instrument. Good stuff. … Read More
