The Multi Delay block in the Axe-Fx II, AX8 and FX8 is split into the Multitap Delay, Ten-Tap Delay and Plex Delay blocks.

The Plex Delay block (Axe-Fx III exclusive) provides up to 8 delay lines in a feedback arrangement for ethereal “shimmer” effects. It provides these effect types:

  • Plex Delay — Delays
  • Plex Detune — Detuned delays
  • Plex Shift — Pitch-shifted delays
