KORG® SDD-3000 Digital Delay
Korg® SDD-3000 Digital Delay
Clean, lovely sounding unit
Even if you're just using this as a unison pre-amp then you're in for a treat but if you want beautiful lush delays right out the block then this is the unit for you. I love it! Thanks UA!
Just like the real mccoy
Decided in one minute
Just after one minute of trying the demo, i knew I wanted this delay. So beautiful and musical sounding. Could not stop playing. Great addition to my other UA delay's
YADD but well worth it!
Yet another digital delay. But alas... after fiddling with it for 20 minutes, most of my other delays sounded quaint by comparison. This thing sounds incredible, and the modulation flexibility is one of a kind. I loved it so much, I cleaned out all other inferior delays from my favorites list and whittled my collection down to a few select stalwarts including this one. What a marvel this thing is and still extremely relevant. It blew away Soundtoys' PrimalTap in my shootout of pitch-modulation delays. SDD-3000 makes a hell of a slap echo just for starters.
Love this plug!
I’m a huge fan of granular sounding delays. From the pcm42 to the dmx this delay fits right in beautifully. It’s rough and smooth at the same time and really makes you feel like you’re using the original. Just fits in the pocket and lays the groove down.
Very musical and easy to use
I was skeptical to this plugin. How could a digital delay from the 80's really compete with the modern wonders we have today? It really just has to be a case of nostalgia, I thought.
Well, spending a few hours with this it made me realize how musical it is. Just twist a few knobs and you instantly have a delay that just works. And even though I could get a similar result with the Precision Delay for example, it would take too much tweaking to get where I want it to go. The input saturation is also a welcome addition! And you get some great pre-sets to start with.
The only thing I would wish for is a more precise output attenuator so that you would not have to rely on setting the level externally. Also, it would have been cool if they included the new delay modes that are present on the guitar pedal. I know that it wouldn't be true to the original, but it would make it much more versatile.
All around a great sounding delay that is fun and inspiring to use. I don't think it's worth the $200 price tag. But make sure to grab it when it's on sale!
SDD 2000 user
As owner and user of the SDD2000 (which I adore for its modulation mojo and rich sound) I can only guess, what a hardware unit of the SDD3000 would sound like, but the plugin felt immediately familiar. I no longer have to track signals through the hardware in real-time (I'm mixing in the box) which is a big time-saver. The modeling of the pre is fantastic, same goes for the overall sound of the plugin...thank you. Btw, Klemt Echolette E-51 would also be a worthy contestant to survive in the digital domain ;)
3 You're just fine
Hello, PLUGIN is amazing, it is one of the best Delay I have worked on
and of course I think I was missing this from UAD.bright kids
Can’t believe how quickly I was channeling William Orbit... simple Prophet 5 patch + SDD-3000 = hours of fun. Really sounds beautiful and so vibey. Preamp is rich and awesome.
Immediately familar and quick to get into a zone. Definitely at the top of my list of go to delays. Had considered purchasing the unit and now feel satisfied with the plug in. Thank you
It’s nice to have such precise control over delay times, regeneration and modulation levels. The sonics also have an “old school” familiarity, and sit well in the mix. This plugin warrants serious consideration.
I am loving this new Korg plugin, and am surprised how often I use it, and am surprised at how clean it makes vocals and bass tracks...yes, I said bass tracks. Not for the actual effect of the delay, but just going through the box, with only a slight delay that is almost not even there.
Fantastic delay plugin. Does its own unique thing. Works great with synths, but really shines on guitar. Strat and Vox emulation puts you straight into Edge territory.
Immediately became a favorite. The preamp emulation is aces, sounds fantastic.
Exzellent Plug in!

It works in unison mode too ¡¡
It's like having an almost infinite number of hardware pieces of this guy and you can instantiate it in every channel, either at mixing stage or mastering too. It sounds better than the original Korg SDD 3000, clearer and transparent, but always vintage ¡¡¡¡
Just the vintage flavor I was looking for!
I own The Mighty Rebekah, a massive modular Moog-style synth which is fed into my system via a UA Apollo 8P, as she is capable of producing 8 simultaneous monophonic voices. On the last piece I composed, I used 6 (!) SDD3000 Plug-ins on the Unison inputs and, wow!, there it was, that crunchy, chewy delay I remember so well. And I had forgotten about how cool the modulation section is. Being able to harness the sound of its analog input stage is a treat! I got on the UAD train at Jump Station and you continue to amaze me. Smartest studio buy of my career. Period.
really epic sounding unit, emulates the original really well.
A hip hop classic is reborn!
Not too many people know this but this was a prefered delay on many a hip hop classic and now it's back! Thanks Universal Audio!
amazing Korg 3000
I love the sound of the 3000 I use it all of the time. Thank you UAD
