Favorite Delay Pedal?

Post by brian.only » Thu Oct 11, 2007 3:12 am

Hey All-
I have always been a big fan of delay stompboxes/racks and was wondering what others are using w/ their synths.

I have been lately enjoying an old analog delay by dod from the performer series- really complements the juno 106 taking off some of the sharpness and smoothing it out- self oscillates madly w/ a nice crackle when cranked. My other favorites are the Digitech Echo Plus(warm for digital and great for live sampling), and the Boss dd6 for the hold and reverse settings.

Next on the list for me may be a DL4 which I'd been holding off from as I've known a lot of people having issues w/ but it seems they are getting more reliable- any other suggestions?

I have played the maxon ad900 and boss dm2- great- but dont really feel they are worth the inflated price.

I love my yamaha e1010, sounds great and really fixes up any digital/soft synths you run through it. Makes things sound much smoother and gets rid of the nasty high end while adding a bit of a noise floor, which is good.

Also am a fan of the Boss DM-100, much more of a wild and crazy beast for self-oscillation, but they go well together. The chorusd on that is great too but it's stopped working on ours.

The behringer digital delay pedal is good too, much to my surprise. I just bought one cause it was cheap and I've used it quite a bit. Build quality is shocking, the internal battery connector on ours doesn't work, but I quite like the sound. Only runs at 24khz so the tops are missing, but in a good way.

i'd love one of those Moogerfooger MF104 pedals… but finding one, and being able to afford it, well that's another question entirely

I use a Maxon AD999 (900ms) and a Yamaha E1010 (300ms) for analogue. For digital I have an Alesis Quardraverb and a Lexicon MX200.

My favorite delay is not from a pedal; it's from black box - the Korg SDD3300. Most software delay plugins don't emulate the capabilities of this, so it's still a valid hardware unit.

analog delays:
an old DOD FX90, electro harmonix memory man, and when I can, I borrow a friends old roland space echo.

digital and software delays:
line 6 echo pro (my fave, it's like a vintage delay without all the noise), logic pro's tape delay plug in, and a crusty old digitech rack delay (RDS 1900)

thanks for all the replys- some seriously interesting stuff here.

aeon- what dont you have? :shock: :P
I've been lusting after a memory lane for a couple of months now (tap and mod?!!!)but I think I'll get a drum set before I drop that much anytime soon.
my pedal habit is manageable as it stays under 150 bucks usually.

That korg triple delay looks really cool, as well as the yamaha e1010.

I'd love to get an echo pro but they seem to go up a hundred dollars every 6 months...
oof- I had to promise myself I would'nt spend more than 300 on a pedal- though 900ms for analog is nuts.

stab- I'd given up on behringer, but I'll have to check it out.
sell me your KS5!

guess im a bit late but figured i would mention the line 6 echo park pedal if you dont have the cash for the echo pro.

i got mine for something silly like 30 bucks but i think they sell for a hundred new, and it beats my dd5.

Anyone (aeon?) had any experience with the analog Ibanez rack delay? AD202 or something... I'm looking to get something rack-mountable and all those VRS23s have disappeared from eBay.

I'm allways giging with my Roland Space Echo...timeless and so warm sounding. :D it gives a lot of fun to tweak the knobs.
It is much easier to be a good equipment purchaser than to be a great musician.

Without a doubt, my Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory-Man. I don't really use it with my Little Phatty, but I feel naked if it's not between my guitar and amp.

I luv my Echo Park. It can be clean, dirty, self-oscillate, match tempos, etc. I bought mine new when they came out two years ago but now you can get them for $50-$75. An absolute bargain.

I love my Ibanez DE7. Its cheap and it sounds amazing. Too bad it lacks tap-tempo. With tap-tempo it would be the TB303 of delay pedals.

Im also completely in love with the EHX Stereo MemoryMan with Hazarai. Looks like a normal digital delay on the outside but its a seriously complicated pedal. 30 sec looping, reverse, HP and LP filter on the echoes, 8 presets where you can store your settings, reverb, etc.
