This Multitap (or Multi-Tap) effect creates multiple echoes.
The basic principle is described here: http://audacityteam.org/manual-1.2/effects_delay.html
The effect has 5 “Delay loops”, each of which has its own delay time (in milliseconds) and can be set to an initial level (linear scale of 0 to 1).
The Feedback control at the bottom sets the amount of feedback for all delay loops.
- “Taps” refer to “tapping into” the audio stream. It has nothing to do with tapping your foot or tapping a button.
- It is often useful to extend the selection beyond the end of the audio so as to allow room for the echoes.
- Only the first delay loop is enabled by default. To enable additional delay loops, set their delay time and level to above zero.
- The plug-in may be used on mono or stereo tracks, but it is a mono effect in that it applies exactly the delay to both channels of stereo tracks.
- Adding echoes is likely to make the audio louder, so it may be necessary to manually reduce the track level (with Amplify or Normalize).
- Multiple tap delays are often most effective if the delay times are not exact multiples of each other.
- Interesting tonal effects can be created by using several very short delays
