About a year ago one of my publishers, Hal Leonard, asked me if I’d be interested in doing a phone app. If I was going to do one, I wanted it to be something that I would use myself, all the time, so I came up with the Delay Genie.

The Delay Genie basically replaces those time delay charts that most studios used to have so you could easily set the reverb predelay and delay times when you’re mixing. While most delay plugins allow you to do some form of automatic timing, the Delay Genie is different because it will allow you to easily calculate dotted notes and triplets, time denominations that are essential to a good mix and one of the tricks of most top mixers.

You can calculate the time delay either by first entering the BPM of the song, or tapping it in where the app will calculate it for you. After the BPM is directly entered or tapped in, the Delay Genie will instantly display:
  • delays in 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 note time increments
  • delays in triplet time increments for 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 notes
  • delays in dotted note time increments for 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, 1/32, 1/64 notes
As a bonus, in the Live mode, the app also calculates the delay time from the stage to a delay speaker stack in a live sound reinforcement situation.
The Delay Genie app can be used for:
  • setting the delay time to make a track larger than life
  • setting the delay time so it fits better in the track
  • setting the delay time so it sticks out of the track
  • setting reverb pre-delay time
  • setting reverb decay time

What’s more, the price is right. It’s FREE, although it will cost $.99 if you want to remove the advert.
