Minimal audio in the past couple of years have gone from complete obscurity to heroes in the plugin space following the release of their highly regarded effects plugins, Rift & Morph EQ. But wait… what’s this?! ANOTHER highly anticipated plugin from Minimal Audio?!

Here it is! Cluster Delay… Delay… Delay….

You can tell by the audio examples found on the Minimal Audio website the team really are a bunch of sound design connoisseurs and fanatics.

On the surface we’re looking at a full-featured muti-tap delay plugin, but as we dive deeper, we find controls and effects processors that enable us to get more creative, push the envelope further than we’d normally be able to with a more traditional delay plugin, and enable us to create truly original and experimental textures and soundscapes.

Delay & Modulation

  • At the center of it all, Cluster Delay has a clean, simple, easy-to-navigate GUI with a visualizer that enables you to see the tap level, timing & stereo position.
  • Select up-to eight taps.
  • Fine-Tune Delays using controls for ramp, space & scatter along with controls for spread & crossfeed.
  • Sclupt your frequencies using the built in high & low pass filter.
  • Mid-side mode.
  • Ducker function that enables the input signal to create a sidechain like effect.
  • Clipper option to dial in additional clip distortion at the output stage.

100 presets to get you going, get some inspiration from, and expand upon…


Cluster delay has an array of 6 different effects, including;

  • Diffusion
  • Chorus
  • Wobble

You can use these effects on the input signal, output signal, or apply them in the feedback loop!
