New Music Gear Monday: Free SoundToys Little PrimalTap

Lexicon Prime Time image
Original Lexicon Prime Time
I used to love to use the Lexicon Prime Time delay. It was one of the first digital delay units and had a few sonic qualities that we would think of as drawbacks today, but actually were part of it's sound (like its 12kHz bandwidth). It had a multiplier switch that would double the delay time, but would half the bandwidth, which made it very "warm" sounding by decreasing the frequency response. It also had a great VCO for some pretty cool modulation effects. All in all, a very versatile unit that was much used and loved at the time.

Now Soundtoys is offering a free mini version of the Prime Time called Little PrimalTap when you enter their contest, which is a social campaign to see how many of your friends you can get to enter. You need a redemption code and a Soundtoys account to download and authorize the plugin.

Ask your friends for the redemption code or link so they can get credit in the contest. The one with the most referrals gets "Plugged In For Life," while runners-up get Soundtoys bundles, so it's worth the entry.

By the way, one of the really cool Soundtoys products that I'm really looking forward to using is the Microshift, which provides the detuned sound of the original Eventide Harmonizer (a much used effect in the 80s and 90s). Check that one out too.

Here's a little video about the Little PrimalTap.

Wow - that's the most confusing contest EVER.

Still can't figure out how to enter.

It's not that confusing. It's all explained on the Soundtoys site:

ALL you need is a redemption code from somebody (mine is in the link below).

Then after registering at Soundtoys you get the plugin and YOUR own code to share with other people.

Just follow this link to, register (or log in if you're already a customer) and that's it!
