    That would be the best delay pedal for me. If strymon put three "types" of delay (digital, analog, and tape) into one simpler pedal, that'd be nice. Not a timeline, but much simpler. However, i'd be nice if this imaginary delay pedal had most of the "modes" (swell, reverse, etc) that the line 6 echo park has.

    A combination of...

    -One of the modes on the el cap : For me, the fixed mode, because the sub-setting of the pedal would already have some sort of multihead setting available (if you don't know what I'm talking about, look up the echo park).
    -One of the modes on bridgadier: No real "modes" so maybe just a analog mode with a bit of bucket loss? Maybe a special dmm mode?
    -One of the modes on the DIG: I'd choose the 12 bit mode, or a special "sdd-3000" mode?

    Then i'd add a universal mod control, and like how the line 6 echo park functions, depending on what mode you're on, the modulation will change to its respective sounds.

    Love the line 6 echo park concept, but love the analog dry path/converters/tones etc of the strymon.

    What changes or additions would you make to this?

    Haha now it's starting to sound a bit more like a timeline! But yeah that would be tight though. My preference though would be more of a simpler approach like the echo park: No presets, no midi, but tap tempo: yes please lol.

    There certainly seems like there is a market for single sized strymon units. Delay with ext tap only and stripped down units with 3 knobs such as just a delay, just a reverb, just a trem, etc.
    At something like a $189 price point, they could definitely increase the customer base. I'm sure there are hundreds of players that would love to experience the Stymon kook-aid but can't stretch the $250+ price with near 90% used values.

    Also some more creative pairing would extend the line nicely. Verb+delay in 2-button format. Opti comp plus Deco pre would be a nice pair.

    But, alas, they are like old school iOS- everyone fits one size.

    A single footswitch El Capistan Mini would be so good. They could even stretch to having an extra input for Exp/Tap-Tempo or Fav switch.

    Agree, especially abou. verb+delay ala-flint format. I'd go for that in a heartbeat.

    I'd love to see Strymon do some mini/MXR sized pedals.

    I would consider paying money for a 1590A box that does the Timeline's "Vinyl" effect.

    Given their cost of R&D (everything done in America, Southern California more specifically) and the inflated cost of components in a Strymon delay/mod pedal due to the SHARC chip I'm not sure how much cheaper they could make a delay pedal. It would definitely be cool to see them enter the fray of $200 pedals though.

    I agree that there was a lot of stuff with the echo park that line 6 did right, including the mode switch so that you could use whatever voice with whatever feature (swell, multi head, sweep). I actually like the tape mode in that pedal a lot, it is surprising no one else tried the echo park recipe, but I can't say that I see strymon doing something like this, at least not anytime soon. The DIG is kind of an indication, now theirs a small box delay "trinity" and obviously those three units will do more on their own than wrapped up into a single small box unit. Would it be nice? Definitely. But I think both strymon and it's fans like the individual units strymon because if you want more than one type, you'll buy more than one unit, and the end user because of the level of control you get from the dedicated unit.

    The Echo Park was before it's time. If the buffer didn't add high end (it's just a tad, but it's noticeable), I would still have it. The analog mode with modulation to this day is one of the best DMM imitations I have ever heard.

    The Obscura seems kinda' close... altho you can't get analog with modulation, unfortunately....

    It exists! The Source Audio Nemesis has just about all you're asking for, for the same price and size as the small box strymons.

    Id love the second tape deck side of my Deco in a smaller pedal. I'd pay ,$200 for that all over again for sure.

    I don't need or want all that. All I need is "digital", "tape", and "analog", with the ability to add modulation if I want it. Simple, yet versatile. It doesn't need to have as many parameters and functions as the space shuttle.

    Frankly, the RE-20 is very close.... it's a great delay to begin with. With the tone controls for the repeats, you brighten (digital) or darken (analog) them. I just wish there was a control to add more modulation to the RE-20. So... the RE-20, with a modulation control (ala DMM) = perfection for me. Even with it's AD/DA conversion (which I used to have a real problem with)

    This may not be exactly what you're looking for but it does have three modes. The new v2 revoices it slightly and adds a Tone control option to one of the existing knobs.
