Lush, Vibrant Analog Delay from Moog - For Your Studio Rack!

With the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay in your 500 Series rack, you'll be able to add a whole new dimension to your mixes. Some songs and effects just beg for the vibrant, enchanting character only a true analog delay can give you, and Moog's 500 Series Analog Delay makes it easy to integrate this must-have effect into your studio's workflow. You get control via Tap Tempo, CV or MIDI, and a software editor that lets you access all the parameters within the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay.

Count on Moog for outstanding music equipment

Since 1954, Moog has been a leader in electronic instruments and synthesizers. Outside of electronic music, Moog was a major influence on the sound of funk, R&B, and jam band rock. When you add Moog gear to your music rig, you're investing in pro-level tools that have been used on countless stages across the world for decades. Whether it's a synthesizer, effects processor, or even a simple control device, you can count on Moog gear for maximum reliability and performance.

Moog 500 Series Analog Delay at a Glance:
  • The perfect way to add analog delay to your studio or live workflow
  • All analog, but with MIDI control too
  • 6 Waveshape LFOs under the hood for creating analog chorus and modulated delay effects
  • Plug-in editor for powerful customization, control and automation
The perfect way to add analog delay to your studio or live workflow

Analog Delay has been one of the most crucial "sweetening" effects since the early days of recording, and the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay utilizes the ultra-convenient 500 Series format to bring it to your studio and live rig. And because it's stereo linkable, you can combine two Moog 500 Series Analog Delay modules to add stellar stereo delay effects to your productions or live shows.

All analog, but with MIDI control too

The Moog 500 Series Analog Delay has an all-analog signal path and CV control too, but you also get control via MIDI to make it easy to integrate into your studio or keyboard rig. You have control over tap tempo too, making the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay one of the best options if you're a live musician or engineer that craves the sound of analog delay, but must have precise control over delay times.

Software editor for powerful customization

You get a VST/RTAS/AU software editor (Mac/PC) with the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay, and you can use it to customize your sound by accessing extra parameters. It's an all-analog effect, but with a MIDI cable you'll have delightfully-tweaky control over the sound of the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay.

Moog 500 Series Analog Delay Features:
  • Analog delay module with up to 800ms delay time
  • Convenient 500 Series format is perfect for live engineers and performers
  • CV/MIDI control over tap tempo makes it perfect for use in live performance
  • Stereo linkable - get two!
  • MIDI control over many functions, including a built-in LFO for modulation of the delay effect

WHOA.

I can't remember the last time I've had so much fun with a piece of gear! As soon as you hit that bypass button, it's just the best. Lots of controls (many of them through the software editor via MIDI) make this a crazy versatile, gorgeous sounding beast of a 500 series unit. So far I've used it with the Sub37, vocals and acoustic guitar, and everything has sounded lush and beautiful. I can't get enough of it, the only trouble is now I have to save up to get another to make a stereo pair.

Studio Quality

Used with Radial Workhorse and it works perfectly. I'm Very impressed with the delay. The midi editor works good, it also allows for some hidden paramiters not available on the front panel. Before I got this unit my expectations were pretty high being its a $900 studio grade delay. I was not dissapointed with the purchase. I recommend to anyone looking for a analog delay.

My Quest for the Best Delay Unit

After reading the great reviews, I had to try these out. They sound very warm and thick, and at short delay times, I liked the effect. But for me, for long delays with feedback, I want the sound to stay clean and pristine. On these units, the sound is intentionally more like tape and increases in artifacts as the sound repeats. That is not what I like for an effect on my horns. But for many, this will be good and what they are after. The midi and plug-in implementation on these is terrific, (!), with great control and stability. During this time, I also tried a pair of the new Eventide DDL 500's. These are a mix of digital and analog, with the punchiest, best sounding delays for my uses that I've ever heard. At 196k max, the imaging with two of these is fantastic. But, unlike the Moogs, there is no midi control, so these are mainly hands-on for control (other than some tap tempo, etc.) These will be great in the studio, but I needed these for live, and don't need to be fiddling with delay controls during the set. If only the features of these two units could be merged (midi control of the Moog, plus the pristine delays of the Eventide), I'd be in heaven. So, because I need total midi control for live use, I ended up getting an Eventide H7600 from Ted at Sweetwater. The H7600 also has great delays and endless other things that are very useable and sound great, all with excellent midi controllability--pretty much the best of both worlds.

Sweetwater Advice

Stuart Niven

Having used many modern and vintage delays over the years, I can say that the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay is by far a stand-out unit. Warm, rich and so very "analog," it's perfect for anything that needs dimension in a mix. The 500 series format, CV and Tap Tempo, MIDI and an Editor all add up to make this an essential tool in your 500 series rack.

Carson McClain

The Moog 500 Series Analog Delay is very gluey and very organic. Grab one of these for your wet vocal mix or grab two for synths. You'll love it!

Josh Estock

The Moog 500 Series Analog Delay brings some serious innovation to my 500-series rack. Plus, it has tap tempo and a plug-in editor that makes dialing in and recalling my settings easy and efficient.

AJ Becerra

The Moog Analog Delay is AMAZING. Hands down one of the most lush and buttery sounding delays out there. The tap temo feature is great and the included plug-in editor makes it SO simple to dial it in. This is my go-to delay for vocals and guitars.
