I agree. For live use, much better spaced out and if you wear boots all the time when playing live...it's hard to finesse when they're too close together. Studio use sitting on top of the amp or whatever I can understand. Live, no way.
I prefer my DD-2 in the loop and my DMM in front. The DD-2 gives a bit more clarity with soloing for a slight shorter delay to fatten solos and the DMM with modulation in front provides a more ambient and rhythmic effect depending on picking/rhythm style. I like the clearer crisp sound of...
I just picked up one of these off Reverb. What a great versatile pedal. The Bluesbreaker OD and the Leslie/Rotary sounds are real keepers. The Flange is also a very deluxe mistress like...which is a great added bonus. Add in a boost and a delay to this and you have a great sounding and...
Tone wise....The BED and the Echorec also need a buffer after them IMO...it compensates for the loss of highs. They respond and sound much differently when the buffer is added. I’m not sure why....but I’m not a fan of the “dull and darker” eq they naturally provide.
Definitely a hint of chorus on that solo with some mild mid boost I’m hearing. After listening to this for the first time in a long time...I’m also hearing a subtle chorus tail on the chords (like a Dimension Chorus) which was very popular in the studios at this time. Just my two cents.
I think it's incredibly brilliant quite honestly. Assuming the magnets would have no interference with electronics (I wouldn't know)...but it's 2020 and the use of magnets to fix to a pedalboard hasn't been even put into production yet. Great idea.
Don't do it...nothing else sounds like it! RE-20 is a great tape delay...but you will miss the DMM modulation...I've been down this road once before. I have both again...after selling my first DMM to @orogeny -- that was a mistake...but I made a good friend from the sale. Go figure.
