Bel BD-80 Digital Delay

The Bel BD-80 processor is a high quality digital delay with an expandable memory with loop edit facility, synchronised record and playback (sampling), keyboard control (1 V per octave), echo and flanging. The Bel BD-80 must be one of the most popular delay/samplers ever produced, being found in most modest home set-up to the more high-profile studio.


The Bel BD-80 had two features that enable its use across the wide range of recording studios; an excellent audio quality combined with a modest price.

The Bel BD-80 now has a successor which also combines these two qualities, welcome to the Bel BD80S “Stereo” Delay/Sampler. The BD80S enables stereo delay effects and “TRUE STEREO SAMPLING” – over 6 seconds at 20HZ – 20KHZ band with ( 13 seconds in mono).



Quantization: 16 Bit
Sampling Frequency: 26kHz
Frequency Response: 20Hz-16kHz / 11kHz

When I want delay, flange, even a short sample this is the machine I go for. It’s clean, a touch sweet sounding and has no nasty traits.
