Low price, great sound, two storable channels
Kai555 27.07.2014
The main reason why i purchased this delay were the two storable channels.

The Harley Benton D-Seed has got four different modes:
Digital - This one sounds great. I couldn't hear any sound losses and it gets up to 6 seconds delay!
Analog - I don't use this one very much, because i already have a great sounding analog delay. But it also sounds great, compared to the (more expensive) one i've got.
Modulation - Hard to describe. Sounds very good and mixes in some kind of chrous to the delay. If you like more experimental sounds, this would be the one of your choice.
Reverse - The only channel i wouldn't recommend. Compared to other reverse delays it seems like the reversed delay-sound gets "cut off".

The controls are self-explaining:
Mix - Turn it to the left, to hear more clean-guitar-sound. Turn it right and you will hear more delay and less clean signal
Mode - With this one you switch between the four modes explained above.
Time - This knob controls the delay time. In digital mode it goes up to 6 seconds!
F.Back - It controls the feedback of the delayed signal.
All knobs are confortable to turn. Not to heavy and to too slight. The mode knob snaps in on the channel you choose.

You can even save two of your favourite sets. Great feature, which is hard to find in this price range. With the left footswitch you switch between channel A and B. With the right footswitch you turn the bypass on and off.

Finally it has got a tap tempo. This is why i only gave 4 stars to the handling. To tap, you have to press the two footswitches at the same time to tap in. I sometimes had some trouble with it, that i accidentally turned the pedal into bypass or changed the channel.

All in all i would strongly recommend it.

A great Product...Minor issues...
N.S.P. 26.07.2019
Let me start by saying I built an entire back up pedalboard from HB pedals for less than the cost of ONE pedal from my main pedalboard!

That said…

I love the D-Seed. The versatility is amazing, the sound quality is VERY good… there are just a couple of things I personally would change.

1. The switches… they are momentary switches rather than “click” switches. Almost every other pedal I use has some give to them, these have NONE! When you are trying to switch quickly and ALL the other pedal on your board have some “give” these things feel like stepping on a nail!

2. It’s a little annoying to have to click both buttons to get the tap tempo feature…

But these are personal pet peeves… They may not bother you at all!

You cannot find a more versatile or better sounding delay for this price!

First, let me say, this is a great sounding pedal, especially for the price! I have no complains about the sound at all.

The only thing I personally dislike much is the user experience. It basically force you to save your tweaks/settings into the memory (there are 2 preset memory slots). If you don't save it and try to use the pedal as other "normal" pedal meaning tweaking the knobs, then playing, then turning the pedal off, and later turning it on, you'll find out it actually loaded the current memory preset instead of honoring the knobs settings/positions. I understand that this was desired behavior by design, it's just I expected something else... And of course, if you get used to saving your settings to presets all the time before switching the pedal off, then you are good to go with no complaint.
But for me, if it didn't have those preset memories, I'd be happier :)

A budget friendly powerful digital delay
M. Salem 08.02.2022
An amazing pedal for the price, build quality is great, sounds great and does a few tricks, it could use a tap/tempo switch instead of the channel switch and make channel switching by pressing the two switches together (currently it the other way around, a dedicated channel switch and tap/tempo using the two foot switches at the same time) but overall a great pedal!
