Native Instruments has introduced Replika XT, a creative multi-mode delay plugin.
According to Native Instruments, Replika XT's five modeled delay modes span crisp digital repeats, analog warmth, and experimental textures. Additionally, seven effects and advanced options claim to allow producers to add depth and width to their mixes with refined control. The plug-in is aimed at producers who need an easy-to-use, all-in-one studio delay for echoes, special effects, and production tricks. Replika XT is available at the NI Online Shop. Registered owners of the original Replika qualify for special upgrade pricing.
Replika XT is said to have been inspired by some of the most revered delays in history, with a total five delay modes, each with its own distinct character:
- Modern provides clean, precise, controllable repeats.
- Vintage Digital offers warm, repeats modeled after early samplers and digital delays.
- Analog replicates the sound of analog bucket-brigade pedals.
- Tape provides the punchy, smooth sound of classic tape echo units.
- Diffusion Mode provides swirling reverberant echoes unlike any physical space.
Replika XT features a clear interface that reportedly makes even complex effects fast and easy to create. Pattern controls allow producers to create rhythmic repeats that shift organically with the music. Panning for each delay line as well as the dry signal allows a custom stereo image. The ducking feature keeps percussive hits tight while still adding space to a drum mix. Together, the controls on Replika XT’s intuitive panel provide uncompromising control with a minimum of effect.
Replika XT is available now at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / £89 / ¥ 12,800 / AU$ 149.
