    :D

    I haven't found anything, which is kinda surprising, as this is unique thing on delay pedal market...

    It does colour me interested and I think I'm going to be adding a small delay to my board soon hmmmmm
     
  5. It looked fun. There is a place near me that carries their stuff. I may check it out soon.
     
  6. I like the look of the demo on Proguitarshop. It's on my shortlist, along with the Flashback X4. Pretty big difference between the two :) I just find I have better results with echo type sounds than conventional delay repeats. Tempted by the size and sound of this one...

    Or you could get a TC Alter Ego Delay - available only from PGS - which has an Echorec setting as an option. That may be all you need to nail this sound rather than a dedicated Echorec-only pedal. The Alter Ego is more or less the same as the original/small TC Flashback BUT with 2 additional different setting options - the Echorec and the EH DMM. IMO, it is a better option than the original Flashback because it has these two specific built-in settings which kill. These two settings ARE NOT available on the regular Flashback or as a TonePrint download. They are built-in/hardwired only in the Alter Ego. Check out http://proguitarshop.com/tc-electronic-alter-ego-delay.html for a demo vid.
     
  9. Thanks guys. I've definitely considered those two and have followed the demo threads on Youtube. I like the idea of tap, presets and the loop for the larger TC pedal. It really does come down to a question of board real estate versus how much I'll use it. Tough call but I think all three options are good value for money. That's a nice change with delays!

    Yep. The 4x is just that. About 4 times as long as the regular ones. Also, with the 4x you will definitely not have the Echorec option if that is a factor for you. IMO don't think the looper is a big deal. Major drawback is you need to manually flip a toggle switch to activate it and turn it back to standard operating for delays. Looks like more of a bell and whistle than anything else. Only 40secs or so to boot. And the standard ones DO have a tap. Not as easy to operate as the 4x though. BUT, it is there.
