The Delaydelus 2 is a modular friendly follow up to our original sampler/delay instrument.
By Daedelus and Dr. Bleep with graphic design by Trek Matthews 

  • Stereo 16bit 44kHz audio i/o
  • Banana plug patch bay allows you to play up to 4 samples at once triggered from the two arcade buttons or trigger inputs.
  • Control the speed and direction of the samples with the knobs as well as the CV FM (-5V to 10V) input
  • CV envelope follower out (0-8V) based on audio playback level
  • Trigger outs (10V) from each sampler button.
  • One shot mode, Gate (mpc style) mode, + Send external audio through the built in 1 second stereo delay.
  • Record into one of 10 banks. Each can hold up to 17 seconds of high quality audio.
  • Delay sync in and out with the ability to divide and multiply incoming sync rate.
  • Micro SD card slot allows loading WAV files the 10 banks.
  • Built-in new samples from Daedelus
  • Worldwide 12 DC power adapter included

At its core the Delaydelus 2 is performative sampler that can manipulate the pitch of 4 stereo samples at once.
Coupled with extensive CV in and out, a syncable delay, and audio input you have a machine that can make anything from boom bap beats to outer dimensional noise loops, with or without additional gear.

All images and videos of a pre production units, warts and all. We are currently working to perfect the in the printing process. The final unit will look very similar to what's presented here

In depth user guide will be posted when units begin to ship.
Code and pcb files will be posted to the   Bleep Labs github           when they are finalized.

All orders include a pin designed by Trek Matthews

Is it a module? Can you mount it in a Eurorack case?
The Delaydelus 2 is a stand alone unit that can send and receive standard CV and triggers from a eurorack modular or anything else but. It's made to live outside a rack so you can perform with it more easily, or use it without modular gear entirely. It's also a bit taller than a eurorack module.

It's not necessarily semi-modualr but self patching is encouraged.         The device takes -5 to 9V CV inputs, triggers over 3V, sends 10V triggers, and sends 0-8V CV out Audio in and outs are line level AC coupled. 

Is it an effect?
Yes you can use it as a stereo delay effect with one of the 2 through modes. Delay times of the left and right channels are independently adjustable.

What do all those jacks and knobs do?!?
