What is the BEST DELAY for you, what sounds Best???

Post by leeski » Mon Mar 06, 2017 12:18 pm

What delay really gets you to the place of dreams.

I love Spaceecho Re-301 and was really fond of the Quadraverb ping-pong with pitch shifting.

What floats the boat?

I absolutely love my Chase Bliss Tonal Recall. Sounds great and can go from gentle to crazy.

My current second favorite is the OTO Bim.

In Limbo 80 Tape II. The III has since come out, but it's by far the best sounding delay I've ever owned. Has Gain for the repeats only and has some great modulation capabilities (ARP modulation on delays :eek: ).

I'm a fan of my Alter Ego v2. It's nothing crazy, but the Toneprint gets me some cool stuff. The other settings are great. It helps a lot that it's stereo.

TC D-Two or the 2290 if you have the $$.
I'll second the Strymon El Capistan, Timeline or the Roland RE-201 (even though it breaks down half the time whenever I want to use it, it's still the most magical I have).
Sony D7 also is capable of some cool delays when you put in the effort.

I like waves super tap pingpong when i don't have me quadareverb to hand, gives some great movement.

anyone use the Fulltone Delay really pricey but a new tape delay must sound awesome.

Just grabbed the Metric halo delay for cheap, and seems good

Strymon El Cap all day long. In stereo it's just the sexiest delay I've ever heard.

Moog MF 104M SD has the sound and playability that I enjoy the most. I several delays and generally have my Mixer's two FX loops set as follows:

1. Moog MF 104M SD
Mutron Phasor 2 (not always present due to noise)

2. Rat
Boss DM-2 (set relative to DM-3)
Boss DM-3 (set relative to DM-2)
Boss PS-2
Boss DD-5 (usually in stereo or reverse)

Very limited experience with hardware delays, but for software I have to say Ubermod takes the cake.

That's good to know i'd seen the buzz with them and then the stereo one came along. Do the 2 sound the same. :despair:

RE-201 of course, it's just a classic and hard to beat for any money. Even better in stereo. It's the delay the Capistan wants to grow up to be someday :)
Add to that the Deluxe Memory Man for shoegazing haze.

(to be fair I do remember liking the 'Cap, and it's like 1/3 the price of a 201).

I'm curious about the Benidub delay:

Benidub

Needless to say, the RE-201 is a thing of beauty. Someone asked about the Fulltone unit, and the tube echo delay is pretty great, but I would take the 201 any day. Plus, I had to buy a reamp box to use the Fulltone with synths.

As for analog delays, my favorite is the Waza Craft. I prefer it over the Moogerfooger, EH, and Carbon Copy.

I'll add that sometimes you can find the RE-150 pretty cheap.
