d16 Group Sigmund 2 is a major update for its creative quad delay plugin with a new UI, more modulation, and filtering power.

Over the past few months, d16 Group has updated numerous of its best-selling plugins: the LuSH-2, the 808 and 909 drum machines Nepheton 2 and Drumazon 2, and more. Now it’s time for the next plugin.

d16 has updated its popular, characterful delay plugin, Sigmund, to version 2, which includes new features and a fresh look.

Like the original, Sigmund 2 is a quad delay with four independent delay lines. The new look immediately catches the eye. The UI has been given a new finish and looks much more modern. It’s ready for music productions in 2024. 

Sigmund 2 is the sequel to the company’s original delay effect plugin and offers all the characterful, analog-style features you loved in the first version. In addition to the well-known ones, the plugin has some new features that make it deeper and more versatile. 

A solid feature upgrade can be seen in the modulation engine. Unlike in S1, Sigmund 2 comes with a modulation source/modulator per delay line, offering additional flexibility. Each modulator can operate as an LFO, envelope follower with transient detection, or peak follower.

More Modulation, Filters… 

Modulation is a key feature in the plugin, unlocking many timbres, like flanging and chorusing. Four modulators allow you to achieve richer sounds. The plugin also comes with a new LFO smoothing function for more creamy modulation results. 

d16 Group has also beefed up Sigmund 2’s filter section. The built-in multimode filter, with its low-, band-, and high-pass filters, now offers an additional mode, making it more flexible.

It also remains just as flexible as in S1, allowing you to use it differently, as an EQ, a bigger sound design tool to shape the delay character, and more. Plus, the overdrive unit now offers a preliminary dynamics control. 

Moreover, Sigmund 2 ships with a new stereo channel crossfade functionality and an update for the preset browser. The latter now includes tags for easier preset management.

First Impression

This is a nice round update. It is not a massive update, but it includes nice engine additions that make it more flexible to use. 

d16 Group Sigmund 2 is available now for an introductory price of 59€ instead of 99€. Existing Sigmund 1 users can upgrade for 19€ from their user account. If you buy the full version from Plugin Boutique, you get a plugin on top for free. This month, the Minimal Audio Hybrid Filter. 

It runs as a VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin on macOS (native Apple Silicon + Intel) and Windows.
