is it a stylistic thing? what does a modulated delay signal contribute to the sound that is important and meaningful, as opposed to a delay ***with modulation? i'm curious how people are using their delays. i can see the value in creating a dense landscape of soupy sounds but some of these applications sound quite congested. delay has been my favorite effect but lately i'm dialing things in more & more conservatively. ***edit: i meant to write WITHOUT. i can see how this is confusing!
