Multitap Delay in the Axe-Fx III

The Multitap Delay is an Axe-Fx III exclusive effect. It's similar to the Multi Delay block in the Axe-Fx II, without the features that have been moved to the Plex Delay and Ten-Tap Delay blocks.

More information in the Owner's Manual.

LFOs

The Multitap Delay's algorithms are different from the Multi Delay. There is no longer an LFO for each tap. Two LFOs each generate multiple phases which are summed and applied to each tap.

"All the types now have three LFOs. The first two LFOs modulate the delay times. The third modulates the filter frequencies. The Phase of the LFO selects the phase between each tap."

Envelope follower

The Multitap Delay has its own envelope follower, allowing volume swells.
