In this "In Action" tutorial series, Bill Edstrom shows you around this unique dual-engine plug-in from iZotope and demonstrates how to use it creatively in your mixes!

iZotope has just changed the delay processing game with the new DDLY, which features two linked but separate delay processors, each of which can switch between an analog-style tape delay mode or a granular delay mode. Bill's first video introduces you to DDLY and covers all of the controls for both delays, and the unique way it uses a threshold slider to dynamically route your signal between them.

Then Bill shows you three exciting tricks for how to use DDLY as a dynamic delay processor on Vocals, including using it as a pre-delay before a reverb. Finally, Bill shows you three creative ways to use the granular delay mode in DDLY.

If you want to master this way cool plug-in, don't delay, (sorry) watch "iZotope DDLY In Action" today!

This definitely helped me hope that Isotope redesigns this plug in

This is a tricky plug-in, ( for me)?? I feel like I have an understanding of whats going on here. I like using the delay as pre-delay to a reverb although its not at all clear how to do it? Also the left right thing looks cool, but it wasn't explained very well as to how to do it.

Great creative insight into DDLY from Izotope

Fresh new plugin deserves fresh new training and Groove 3 delivers just that, apart from explaining the functions and interface to near detail, the author in each section shows you practical and creative uses of it, consistent with the Groove 3 courses i have done so far. Short, relevant and creative !! Thanks

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started on trumpet at age 10, but got more passionate when I picked up bass and guitar in high school. During college, I had a band where I shared lead vocals and electric guitar duties. After that I was in a variety of bands usually on bass or behind the mixing board.

2. What training have you had?

I studied electrical engineering in college but mostly learned recording and music on my own. Recently, I completed the Master of Songwriting and Guitar program through Berklee Music.

3. When did you get into recording?

I have always been fascinated with tape recording since fifth grade. I started by recording demos by bouncing back and forth between two cassette decks. Later I moved on to portastudios, ADATS, pro studios, then to a DAW based project studio.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I work with songwriters world-wide as the founder and creator of LilacWriter.com - an online collaboration site for songwriters. In my career, I have done FOH, producing, songwriting, mixing, mastering, and voice over. Used to work regionally, but now requests can come from anywhere in the world.

I've written two books on audio production: "Studio One for Engineers & Producers" and "The Power in Cakewalk SONAR" both published by Hal Leonard Books.

Whenever possible, I work closely with the developers of the products I teach doing testing, bug reporting, and feature requests. I think this gives me a much deeper understanding of the products. I really enjoy seeing the products I work with improve.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have always been interested in making technology easier to use and understand. I think showing examples is essential when introducing a topic. I feel recording should be a fun and creative experience and I hope that comes across in my videos.
