Transform ordinary signals into
something extraordinary.

Released in 1980, the A/DA STD-1 Stereo Tapped Delay is a unique analog effects processor with powerful creative features. With its array of six bucket-brigade delays, LFO and modulation controls, and flexible panning, it’s famous for transforming and widening guitars, vocals, drums, and more.

Developed by Brainworx and endorsed by A/DA, the A/DA STD-1 Stereo Tapped Delay plug-in is an exacting emulation of the rare analog rack unit, exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces.

Now You Can:

Add width, depth, and character to any source with a unique analog, bucket-brigade delay circuit

Build rich soundscapes and unique spatial effects

Layer vocal tracks with highly tunable doubling and chorus effects

Transform ordinary mono tracks into huge, wide stereo sounds

A Hit with Guitarists

A Hit with Guitarists

Although it works wonders on all types of signals, in the rack-obsessed late ’80s/early ’90s, guitarists revered the A/DA STD-1’s versatile, ultra-analog delay/modulation tones. Jimmie Vaughan’s used it for faux-Leslie warble, while Allan Holdsworth obsessively tweaked two A/DA STD-1’s for complex modulation that went way beyond traditional chorus. Other STD-1 aficionados included Kirk Hammett, Scott Henderson, Steve Khan, and Bill Connors.

Creativity on Tap

Creativity on Tap

The heart of the A/DA STD-1 is its six tunable, non-harmonic bucket-brigade delays. Set the delay time and each successive tap is automatically adjusted to an offsetting value — letting you create echoes and short reverbs with rhythmically overlapping taps. Control the stereo image over time by routing each tap independently to the left or right channel, or add sonic interest by dialing in feedback with the flexible Regeneration section.

Versatile LFOs

Versatile LFOs

Key to the A/DA STD-1’s powerful sonics is its dual LFO circuit with an adjustable sweep rate. Use it to modulate the delayed signal to create warm, three-dimensional layering effects or a uniquely wide soundstage. From classic chorusing and flanging to otherworldly sound design, the A/DA STD-1 is a valuable tool, able to transform any signal into something extraordinary.

Delay? Check.

Between the AD/A STD-1 and the EP34, I have superb sounding delay effects covered. TOP marks UA!
Now, if you could model the Dyno My Piano chorus (or the current version by Fulltone - That 80s Chorus) that would be fantastic!

An essential Plugin to get analog feeling

Using it in subtle ways on every channel songs get wider and get a analog feeling, that I could not reach bevore with any other plugin chain. The fine detunings sound natural and the ear does not recognize modulation patterns. It can also be used to put tracks into another dimention to get sounds separated from each other. For me it became an essential plugin to get analog Sound.
