Esoteric Dual Band Delay

Interstice is a dual band delay plugin that aims to facilitate the creation of otherworldly echoes and resonances. It splits the input signal into low and high frequencies using a resonant filter to add extra harmonics to the sound. Each band then goes through a delay with a complex feedback path consisting of a diffusion network and a damping filter. A pitch-shifter can optionally process the signal pre- or post-delay to create complex overtones. A drift modulator can also impact key parameters of the circuit.
Interstice was designed with dense and psychedelic ambient sounds in mind, to turn a simple synthesizer note or a short sample into a cascade of esoteric tones, but it also shines as a resonator on top of more rhythmically complex signals. Its apparent simplicity and straightforward workflow hides an extensive palette of creative possibilities, as demonstrated by the factory presets that include a bank specially crafted by acclaimed sound designer Ivo Ivanov. Last but not least, more surprising results are just a click away with the built-in parameter randomizer.
In this track, each sound is heavily processed by multiple instances of Interstice. No other effects were used, except for some equalization and compression.
