Deluxe Memory Man clone at a very fair price !

Julien4991, 25.10.2015
1st impressions after 1 week of use:

Look :
Probably the weakness of this pedal. It looks solid but...
Color is quite ugly (to me), font used for the logo is really basic and chicken head knobs are small and look cheap.
Switch are not soft so don't expect this.

Anyway, let's remember we are in front of a 100 euros pedal made in China.
So let's concentrate on sound !

Sound:
The repeats are much clearer than most of analog delays out there.
Repeats are clearer than my DMM (calibrated by H.D.) and trebles fade very slowly.
Which means this pedals can really sit in the mix with dirt on contrary of other analog delays.
Bad point : repeats have a lot of white noise on mine (to me and compared to my DMM), no matter delay time.
My DMM has absolutely no white noise or aliasing, even at the longest delay time, but is darker/more ambient.
Memory Delay reminds me the 1st DMM XO I had some years ago which was very punchy.
(my big box DMM is far better for ambient stuff but miss the punch you would need for leads)

Modulation :
Modulation is very nice, it works really like modulation on DMM (not only chorus/vibrato, but a kind of vibe/phase effect).
And this is the modulation you cannot hear out of DMM.
I don't really see use for a switch to add or not modulation.
I would have prefer tap tempo instead.

Gain/Headroom :
It can go from unity gain to a fair boost.
It seems to have good headroom even at 12 o'clock.
I have to find the sweet spot maybe to improve ratio noise/signal.
NB : the pedal is not true bypass, so this preamp is always on like an old DMM Big Box.
No loss of volume when engaged.

Oscillation :
Mine is not easy to make it self oscillate. So it cannot do the dirty oscillation I love on my DMM.
But this means you can really increase number of repeats before it oscillates.
Degradation of tone per repeat is very slow, and actually better than my DMM.

Delay time :
Xvive pedal can have longer delay time than my DMM.
Probably my DMM is only around 450m and this one is real 600ms.
However at highest delay time you can hear aliasing.
Before 450-500ms there is no aliasing (like old DMM) but some more white hiss.

So what's the deal?
I would say at 100 euros this pedal is a very good deal !
It's punchy, warm as you expect from analog, nice modulation.
I'm just a bit disappointed by white noise (but my DMM XO was also noisy so it's probably not bad compared to current DMM XO).

Probably not as good as a real old DMM..but this is really not the same price tag.
For 50 euros more, add tap tempo and reduce white noise and this is a DMMTT killer!

My Behringer VM1 (now defected) had quite same white noise on repeats but it was sounding dull and sterile to me.
It sounded more like a lofi delay pedal to me, cannot be compared to DMM.

Wonderful warm sound ...

Buckenheimer, 14.09.2017
... especially in stereo operation! Beautiful Delays with for analog delays proper attack. The modulations turn your ears off - in the positive sense. Also here: absolutely over two amps! And the price is of course the hammer.
