Delay with endless possibilities

22.04.2016
First of all, I've not used a lot of pedals until recently. I did not think it was necessary but as time passed I realized that it is good to be able to get a lot of different sounds for different occasions.

This pedal can do just that, it has several high quality delays and you can tweak them to your liking in so many ways! From subtle delays to big, spacious sounds, this pedal can do anything in between. I like the fact that you can use two delays simultaneously.

Pros: high quality build, high quality sound, more affordable than competitors, easy tweaking thanks to the display, very versatile.

Cons: some say it can sound sterile, but you can tweak the sound to your liking if you think so. The shimmer setting is good but not the best on the market in my opinion, hence the 4/5 in sound, the other delays sound great though.

I am really happy that I got this pedal, hopefully it will be used for many years to come.

To begin with it's a DIGITAL delay. Digital and Analog delays are used for different things. Do your research online before spending this amount of money.

PROS : you have many options and the options have options that have options so you can pretty much customize the hell out of it.Really simple to set up. Which means that you can manipulate your signal in interesting ways apart from your typical delay. It's a great tool if you are into soundscapes and creating ambience.

CONS : You need some time to set it up even though it's easy. Some parameters that you will encounter during customizing your sound might not be known to you.(you can always use the internet though).

Even though there is a LOOPING function on the pedal you will need a real looper.You can't save loops so if you want to change the type of delay that you use you have to forfeit the already recorded loop.
