I have a cheap delay I really like (DemonFX Tape Echo, clone of the Keeley Mag Echo) but its not stereo, and I'm all about the stereo now!

I am thinking of running another clone of the Keeley I have coming with it as a stereo pair as I really want a stereo version of this... probably going to be an always on kinda thing so not too worried about the double up of controls, can't really find anything at a reasonable price that would give me the same toan... first world problems. what would you do?

Parallel delays can be cool, if you tolerate having to line up knobs. They don't behave the same was as true stereo delays, though, as obviously the two delay lines never interact. Strymon DIG was fantastic in being able to switch from parallel to stereo option quickly to hear the difference.

Ahhhh i think I've posted some stuff before, might be in the workbench thread or similar :mental:

I've got a design in my head for a really compact expression pedal I wanna make, with a tap tempo button for my DD-8 as well.
A wah-style expression pedal?

Hmmmm I always assumed most stereo delays were just two separate circuits, so there is some mixing between the sides? I have two more stereo delays after this so I guess some of that will happen with them :mental:

Depends how to the signal path works. I remember there being interesting diagrams in the manuals for the Volante and DIG demonstrating different ways of doing it.

This reverb sounds amazing in the demos. That usually means nothing until you try it yourself, but... wow:

Well I've moved my volume pedal off the board so have room for moar pedals now, huzzah, another cable kit coming from Thomann to allow this to all happen as well...

Mmmm saw a demo of that the other day, the sliders are kinda cool but I'd prefer some knobs and it to be cheaper :rofl:

Yeah I was wandering how accurate and precise that would be with getting the settings dialed in. Guess you'd have to try it to know for sure.

I have one of these on my board - it’s absolutely BRILLIANT!

For those with modellers in their rigs it’s pretty amazing - you can put your whole setup in the loop and send with the XLR out. If the battery runs out, you can just plug in to the unit. You recharge by putting it on the face of the unit OR charge with usb-c. Pedal acts as boost or an excellent tuner. Cable emulation on the receiver, as well a mute. Cable port actually points towards the guitar jack. Cable is just a simple stereo 6.3mm to 3.5mm cable.

Love it.

Also, have one left at the store - sold two out of the three we had in the first week: https://familymusic.co.nz/products/nux- ... 9d12&_ss=r

Has anyone tried the EHX Spruce Goose Overdrive? Supposed to be a Bluesbreaker clone with extra Boost function.
