favorite 3rd party delay plugins?

I too like Fabfilter Timeless. I also use SoundToys Echoboy a lot. And a bit less often I use Ohmforce Ohmboyz (it has a good quick patch for stereo pan delay with LFO filter sweeping, something I also set up in Logic with TapeDelay and automating its high- and low pass filter).

One very special delay plugin I like is Augustus Loop by Expert Sleepers. What I particularly use in Augustus is the option to change the pitch of the delay. This can be done seamlessly (like tape/vinyl speed change) or musically pitched to half notes. When pitched by half notes you can "play" the delay loop by a MIDI keyboard or a MIDI region. Just imagine what cool sounding dynamic textures that can create! Recently I used four instances Augustus Loop to freeze a note from a lead line and then automated the pitch to slowly glide from four voice unison into a four part chord. A bit like the THX jingle sound, but instantly available in Logic with Augustus. It does a lot of more too...
 
Hey hi,
Thanks for the suggestions! Fabfilter's Timeless is fun and quite extreme like Ohmboyz and CamelPhat fx. I'm in download the demo week and so I downloaded the Line 6 Pod Farm and am very impressed with it. I think there's a lot of bang for the buck with it. The bass and guitar amps are great and the vocal and keyboard fx are pretty good too.

Using Logic's simple plugins can be really amazing too. My favorite Logic delay is Echo, but you can make it way more interesting by using it on a bus with tremolo (in panning mode) followed optionally by Autofilter. By combining Logic plugins you can get results that outperform many 3rd party plugins.
