Unfiltered Audio is one of my favourite plugin developers at the moment and keep coming out with some really clever and unique tools. I recently picked up their Sandman Pro delay plugin which I absolutely love. The standout features are the unique delay modes like, multi tap, glitch, pitch and reverse, as well as the crazy possibilities you get from the sleep buffer. Couple that with Unfiltered Audios trademark modulation system and you can get some pretty out there effects. Check out the video for a review of all the plugins features.
