Turn on the taps with Steerpike v3, the original Bucket Brigade Delay (BBD) delay, exclusively for Reason. With exceptional ease-of-use and an “at a glance” approach, with nine delay topologies, including cross stereo, ping-pong and serial/parallel mixed-modes, version 3 further enhances the creative delay possibilities, making Steerpike your go-to multi-channel FX delay.
Inspired by classic delay pedals, each of Steerpike’s BBD lines can be played forward or reversed. New serial modes allow reverse delays with stereo feedback, providing a level of flexibility in delay sculpting previously unheard of in Reason. Its exceptional level of delay time and tempo sync control provides support for the widest range of tempos yet. Whether you want a delay time of 16/2, 1/256, 3/11, 1/5, 2/9, the default 3/16, or almost anything in between, just dial it in, or use millisecond/second timing, or even set a number BBD stages!
Version 3 furthers the creative possibilities by adding a modelled vintage reverb and a resonant FX Filter that can be inserted before or after the delay lines, or directly into the feedback loops of individual channels, plus two addtional LFOs to modulate them.
Up to 8 seconds of delay are available per channel—that’s an astonishing 48 seconds of delay time possible using a six-channel Serial mode!
Steerpike makes multi-tap delay creation simple by providing as many direct parameter controls as possible for each delay line.
Six delay channels with tap outputs and level adjustable tap in
Reverse delay available on each channel
Eight seconds of delay time per channel
Nine delay modes, including Cross Stereo for true stereo in and stereo out, Parallel, Serial and Ping-Pong, plus new stereo serial modes, providing suspended delays, stereo reverse with feedback, and serial/parallel mixed delays
Triggerable Delay Line Input button gates the audio input into Steerpike without clearing the delay lines; ideal for infinite “loop” style delay by cutting off new input and allowing the dry signal to continue to play separately
Select the analog warmth of BBD, or clean DDL performance modes
Clock rate adjust (BBD mode only)
Ducking control with audio sidechain input and recovery time control
Steer effet control to increase or decrease delay time of all Taps
FX Filter, a resonant filter that can be modded via LFO or an envelope, and can be inserted into the feedback loop of individual delays lines, or globally pre- or post-delay lines
FX Reverb, a modelled vintage reverb that can be position pre- or post-delay lines
Dual LFO with four sweepable waveforms: filtered square, triangle, sine and drift, with LFO CV output, to modulate delay lines and FX Filter
Wide rate LFO with six sweepable waveforms: ramp, square, triangle, sine, random smooth and random pulse, to modulate delay lines and FX Filter
Wide rate sine LFO to modulate FX Reverb or FX Filter
Set delay time via BBD stages, milliseconds/seconds, or tempo sync
Set tempo sync duration from 1-16
Set any tempo synced bar/beat subdivision from /2 to /16 inclusive, plus all halved and triplet subdivisions to up /256
View and adjust both Duration and Subdivision in the same display
Gate/Envelope triggering, with built-in amp and filter envelope
Pan (mono input) or left/right balance (stereo input) control for the dry signal
Per channel harmonic distortion , LFO delay time Modulation depth, Envelope depth, Level (phase invertible with high pass), Pan and of course, Feedback
High gain FX Drive
Three band EQ can be enabled per channel
Global high pass and low pass filter
Low shelf boost
Dry Pan allows on-board pan/balance of the dry signal
Per channel tap in/tap out, with dual return positioning, into the feedback loop (FL) or into the output chain (Breakout)
