What is the Megatap Delay
The Megatap Delay is a 4 second, 128-tap delay line, with parametric control of time, amplitude, and panning. It can be used to create interesting sonic patterns/textures or to increase density before other effects.
The block has been overhauled in firmware 17.01 and later, now providing many pre-configured types.
