The Dutch plug-in developer FabFilter has given its tape-style delay plugin Timeless an exciting and much awaited overhaul. New features include five new one-knob feedback effects, six filters, creation of patterns using up to 16 taps and a completely re-designed GUI for streamlined workflow, which in our opinion brings the the plug-in up-to-date and in-line with the companies other amazing plug-in offerings.

Notable new & improved features including:

• Fully redesigned, highly simplified interface, with an easy workflow and new modulation engine

• Optional Drive, Lo-Fi, Diffuse, Dynamics and Pitch effects

• Up to 6 filters, which can be either the original, vintage LP/HP/BP filters or Bell/Shelving/Notch EQ filters

• Create rhythmic patterns using up to 16 delay taps, which can be controlled and modulated individually

• Interactive delay and filter displays

• Various interface sizes and Full Screen mode

• Curve control in EGs and transient detection in EFs

• Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces

• Improved the sound quality of overall feedback, the filters, and internal saturation

• Feedback and cross-feedback, and modulatable freeze option

• Ping-pong modes

• Live modulation visualization for targets and sources

• Carefully designed and curated factory presets, plus support for earlier Timeless presets

• Endless modulation options, with all the 16-step XLFOs, XY controllers, envelope generators, envelope followers and MIDI sources you will ever need
