Per voice delay ideas

Per voice delay ideas

So the 4-tap delay line in the P12 is supposedly per voice, meaning you can polyphonically modify the delay level/feedback/time/pan via envelope, LFO, note, velocity and (external) poly aftertouch. This seems like a very interesting and unique feature. But I've only used the delay line in a traditional way so far, that is, pretending that it is operating on the mix of all voices.

Any ideas/experience using the delays polyphonically? Some things I can imagine (but not tried):
  • Free running LFOs (with different phase/frequency per voice) modulating delay time creates a rich chorus
  • Tie delay feedback to velocity, so notes struck harder ring more than usual
  • Delayed envelope to bring in delay level slowly for each note
Would welcome more ideas!
