    Any suggestions for an analog delay that sounds and feels like a DM-2 but is 600ms. I've tried a friend's Malekko Bright recently and I was impressed. Retro-Sonic is also on the short list. Anyone know of any others? Thanks for your collective thoughts!

    The Analogman is an excellent option, don't forget the MXR Carbon Copy also.

    Not the DD-7, digitally modeled analog doesn't come anywhere near true analog, as far as delay is concerned.

    Carbon Copy... Analogman (I Have and it's WONDERFUL)

    The DD-7's analog mode sounds twice as good as any other modeler I have heard.

    i'd do the pepsi challenge on that there statement. in fact, i have. not only does it come near. . . i'd doubt that 99/100 people could tell the difference.

    i ditched my dm3 back to my cousin (okay. . . so it's not REALLY ditched) when i got the dd20 to fake me out in a blind taste-test via the analog patch (probably the same one in the dd7). when you can't hear the difference. . . you can't hear the difference. my main fr8_trane couldn't hear the difference either. . . it doesn't do the cool oscillation stuff that an analog delay can do. . . but neither do i when i'm playing my songs in front of people. . . .

    PLUS it come with stereo ins and outs - very handy for sonic landscapes.

    The Retro Sonic delay is 600 ms and is based on the DM-2. It also has a tone control for the repeats and a second switch so you can toggle back and forth between slapback and a longer delay.

    This one is on my very short list of pedals that I want to get ahold of.

    Thanks for all the responses. Orogeny, I wondered about that on the DD7...how good the modeler might be. I have an RE-20 now and had a DM-2 for a year or more on loan from a friend. I really liked the DM-2, but found situations where I needed a longer delay. I don't really think the RE-20 feels the same as the DM-2, although the sound can get close. Maybe this is a bit too esoteric, but I liked that bounce that I felt the DM-2 had, if you know what I mean? Wonder if the analog modeller of the DD7 will get it. The Retro-Sonic may be the way to go.
