Blue Cat's Late Replies is a powerful delay and multi effects plug-in that can be indefinitely extended by hosting third party VST, VST3 or AU plug-ins anywhere in the signal path.
With its unique topology, the plug-in is a full-featured delay machine with unlimited powers: both the 8 taps pattern module and the two nested feedback loops include plug-in slots that can host built-in effects or third party plug-ins.

With the integrated ducker and its side chain input, ducking delays or reverbs has never been so easy.

"I really like it - it's different. [...] In 2016 Blue Cat Audio released Destructor, a very clever amp/distortion plug-in, and that changed things for me.[...] I've got the feeling that this is going to change the way I work with delays. [...] This is a plug-in that can be as simple a you want it to be, or as complicated, which is quite nice. " - - [full video review].
"Offering a host of interesting delay effects split into 8 distinct chains with the additional ability to internally host external plugins, Late Replies is so intensely powerful that it almost becomes an instrument unto itself." - .
"Be aware it's probably the most powerful delay you've ever seen.[...] If there were a best-FX-of-the-year award, Late Replies would be in serious competition for that prize, it's that inspired, innovative, flexible, powerful and ground-breaking." - - [read full review].
