Tel-Ray Variable Delay


Vintage delay and reverb

Featuring lush delay, amazing echo, and incredible warmth, the Tel-Ray Variable Delay plugin delivers a unique vintage delay that is perfect for any voice or instrument. The original analog units were developed in the early 1960s by a small company experimented with electronics and technology. When they came up with something great, they would Tell Ray—the boss. One invention involved a tuna can, a motor, and a few tablespoons of cancer-causing oil. The creation: an electronic memory unit aptly named the Tel-Ray.

Each Tel-Ray we tested varied drastically in pitch and variation effects, and the same unit could even sound different day to day. Since the original units are basically 30 year-old tuna cans bolted to plywood with springs and motors flopping around inside, we added a Variation knob so you can dial in a Tel-Ray in whatever state of disrepair you desire.


  • Variable Delay

    Select the delay time from 0.06 to 0.3 seconds—full clockwise is slowest

  • Variation

    Adjust how much variation occurs in the delay—the more variation you use, the more warbled and wobbly the sound becomes

  • Sustain

    A feedback control similar to the one found on the Moogerfooger Analog Delay determines how long the delay takes to die out

  • Echo/Doubler

    Determines whether or not a second record head is engaged, resulting in a double echo
