KORG® SDD-3000 Digital Delay
Korg® SDD-3000 Digital Delay
Very musical and easy to use
I was skeptical to this plugin. How could a digital delay from the 80's really compete with the modern wonders we have today? It really just has to be a case of nostalgia, I thought.
Well, spending a few hours with this it made me realize how musical it is. Just twist a few knobs and you instantly have a delay that just works. And even though I could get a similar result with the Precision Delay for example, it would take too much tweaking to get where I want it to go. The input saturation is also a welcome addition! And you get some great pre-sets to start with.
The only thing I would wish for is a more precise output attenuator so that you would not have to rely on setting the level externally. Also, it would have been cool if they included the new delay modes that are present on the guitar pedal. I know that it wouldn't be true to the original, but it would make it much more versatile.
All around a great sounding delay that is fun and inspiring to use. I don't think it's worth the $200 price tag. But make sure to grab it when it's on sale!

As owner and user of the SDD2000 (which I adore for its modulation mojo and rich sound) I can only guess, what a hardware unit of the SDD3000 would sound like, but the plugin felt immediately familiar. I no longer have to track signals through the hardware in real-time (I'm mixing in the box) which is a big time-saver. The modeling of the pre is fantastic, same goes for the overall sound of the plugin...thank you. Btw, Klemt Echolette E-51 would also be a worthy contestant to survive in the digital domain ;)
3 You're just fine
Hello, PLUGIN is amazing, it is one of the best Delay I have worked on
and of course I think I was missing this from UAD.bright kids
Can’t believe how quickly I was channeling William Orbit... simple Prophet 5 patch + SDD-3000 = hours of fun. Really sounds beautiful and so vibey. Preamp is rich and awesome.
Immediately familar and quick to get into a zone. Definitely at the top of my list of go to delays. Had considered purchasing the unit and now feel satisfied with the plug in. Thank you
It’s nice to have such precise control over delay times, regeneration and modulation levels. The sonics also have an “old school” familiarity, and sit well in the mix. This plugin warrants serious consideration.
I am loving this new Korg plugin, and am surprised how often I use it, and am surprised at how clean it makes vocals and bass tracks...yes, I said bass tracks. Not for the actual effect of the delay, but just going through the box, with only a slight delay that is almost not even there.
Fantastic delay plugin. Does its own unique thing. Works great with synths, but really shines on guitar. Strat and Vox emulation puts you straight into Edge territory.
Immediately became a favorite. The preamp emulation is aces, sounds fantastic.
Exzellent Plug in!

It works in unison mode too ¡¡
It's like having an almost infinite number of hardware pieces of this guy and you can instantiate it in every channel, either at mixing stage or mastering too. It sounds better than the original Korg SDD 3000, clearer and transparent, but always vintage ¡¡¡¡
Just the vintage flavor I was looking for!
I own The Mighty Rebekah, a massive modular Moog-style synth which is fed into my system via a UA Apollo 8P, as she is capable of producing 8 simultaneous monophonic voices. On the last piece I composed, I used 6 (!) SDD3000 Plug-ins on the Unison inputs and, wow!, there it was, that crunchy, chewy delay I remember so well. And I had forgotten about how cool the modulation section is. Being able to harness the sound of its analog input stage is a treat! I got on the UAD train at Jump Station and you continue to amaze me. Smartest studio buy of my career. Period.
really epic sounding unit, emulates the original really well.
A hip hop classic is reborn!
Not too many people know this but this was a prefered delay on many a hip hop classic and now it's back! Thanks Universal Audio!
amazing Korg 3000
I love the sound of the 3000 I use it all of the time. Thank you UAD
Amazing how close to original
Heard and used the original and this is just a wonderful duplication of it. High quality and amazing delay function
What a preamp!
If you want that special something.... this is it! It will spice up your lead tones or if you want that U2 The Edge rhythmic guitar patterns! Run it in front of the guitar or in the effects loop. Very versatile!
GREAT Delay Plugin!
This thing sounds great on synths, vocals, and more! Definitely worth a demo to see what you may come up with.
new favorite delay
really fantastic sounding delay, especially being able to drive the front end and control the amount of headroom. One of the absolute best delays I have used yet, including rack units. Take the time to get to know it and how to use it correctly and it becomes a hands down must purchase!
I was waiting for this or the Roland, but this Korg is the most wanted. All my guitarsounds I had way back are back in my rack again! It sounds exactly as the HW and it is for real!
The Modulation is beautiful! Try it with a good guitar and get stucked for hours!
