OTO Machines Tabletop Delay Effects Module

OTO Machines BIM is a 12-bit stereo delay unit inspired by studio delay processors from the early 80s, which have gained cachet over time for the quality and unique musicality of their sound. The processing in these vintage delays is mainly analog—analog companders, analog limiters, analog low-pass filters, analog feedback path, etc.—with the signal converted to digital only for the delay section using 12-bit AD/DA converters and some RAM memory chips. The advantage of this approach is especially apparent when the sound is feedbacked many times through the whole analog + 12-bit signal path: you'll hear a sweet degradation and dark damping that 100% digital delay boxes can't match.

When OTO Machines designed BIM, they wanted to create a unique, modern and versatile effects processor based on this 80s technology. They've managed to mix the fabulous sound of an old 12-bit digital delay with modern features such as stereo processing, extra effects, many user presets, MIDI control, tap tempo and compact size, making BIM the best of both worlds.

BIM is the perfect companion for the musician, producer, sound engineer or live performer who is looking for a uniquely warm and musical delay processor.
