The 4ms Looping Delay might look like the little sister of the popular DLD module, but doesn’t fail to deliver, coming up with a variety of functions.
A whopping 87 seconds of delay time are possible with the Looping Delay (LD) from the modular experts 4ms from Portland in Oregon. This allows not only standard delay effects, but also Karplus-Strong synthesis (try a clocksignal in audio speed) and sound-on-sound orgies. The pitch doesn't change when the delay time is switched, but gently slides into the new temporal context via crossfade. Temporal control is possible in various ways, a large array of patch points allows a high degree of flexibility. Among other things, the internally or externally controllable clock can be multiplied or divided via the Time parameter; while the knob sets the divider factor, the corresponding switch allows you to set a range from an eighth note up to 32 beats, all CV-controllable, of course. The feedback reaches a whopping 110% and is extensively CV-controllable. It can even be processed externally with the send-return function if necessary before being sent back to the module.
In the hold mode activated by the hold button (who would have thought it!), the piece of audio information currently in the memory can be looped infinitely and then read out with the feedback control as a partial range, with the reverse function the whole thing also functions in reverse.

Looping Delay @4ms
Based in Portland (Oregon, US) Dan Green and Jeannot Quenson had a years experience already building guitar pedals. Since one input/output and tone and volume control felt a bit limiting, they applied their knowledge and passion to building a wide range of modules. Their collaboration with Matthias Puech (developer of the Clouds' Parasites alternative firmware) and Gary Hall (designer of the Lexicon PCM42) have proved to be very fruitful.
