duration - approximately 1:55
The microphone signal is patched into the mixer for pre-amplification and for routing to the left input of the digital delay unit (through an auxiliary output or effects send of the mixer). A single echo of the signal appears at the left output of the digital delay unit, after a delay of 340 milliseconds. Another single echo of the signal appears at the right output of the digital delay unit after a delay of 680 milliseconds. These two echoes are then returned to the mixer and routed to the loudspeakers (through an amplifier).
NEW!!! (Summer 2010): Download a Mac version or a Windows version of a digital delay simulator. You may want to buy a microphone that can clip onto the bell (such as the Audio-Technica ATM350c) and a small XLR-to-USB interface (such as the Blue Microphones Icicle ), or you may want to buy a small table-top (or music-stand-top) microphone with its own USB cable that plugs directly into your laptop (such as the Blue Microphones Snowball). Once the USB signal from the microphone is plugged into your computer, the digital delay simulator will perform the functions of the audio mixer and the digital delay unit shown in the above diagram. You will then need to connect the headphone output of your computer to a pair of loudspeakers (perhaps with the help of this 1/8" TRS Male-Dual RCA cable or this 1/8" Stereo Male-Dual TS).
