might need a unit that would cover basic delays, up to 600 ms or so, and a couple of basic verb settings. Need stereo ins/outs, delay must be able to ping/pong, but thats really all i need..I dont do a lot of fancy tap tempo stuff, these are mainly for ambience and spatial considerations, so im trying to find something thats not overkill with more options than i need. budget friendly would be nice too :)

any recommendations?

Timefactor can do delay...plus all your reverbs....going to be hard to find anything else that has stereo jacks, pingpong AND reverb

bumping this thread,as im still looking at options... would the memory man w/hazarai fit this bill? seems like it might, but i 'd like to hear form those with direct experience, or those with any other options to consider...

The Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai will do everything you need (and more), but the only issue is the delays only do ping pong if you run mono in to stereo out. If you run stereo in to stereo out, there is no ping pong.

The other thing with the SMMH is the ping pong function is completely all or nothing - mono in to stereo out means ALL your delays are ping pong, and stereo in to stereo out is no ping pong at all.

It's a shame you don't have the option to choose. The SMMH has a tonne of what could be classed as design flaws, but it makes up for it in tone and charm. I've learned to accept it for what it is and what it does well, without wishing it was something else. Now, I love it.

good to know... all of them being ping pong i can live with, but not having that capability with both stereos in is a real drawback. does anyone know if there's a mod that can overcome that?

Would you ever need to use delay and reverb at the same time?

If not, you might want to check out the Line 6 Echo Park. it definitley does ping pong, along with a shitload more delay modes. It sounds great. Whilst it doesn't have a reverb setting, it does have multitap delays.... multitap delay on the tape setting with really short delay time and fairly high feedback = pseudo reverb. It's not quite the real thing, but it's really not far off.

I run stereo ins to my t.c. electronic Nova Delay and ping-ping the outputs to 2 amps and it is marvelous. The mod repeats are not outlandish, just atmospheric and tasteful. No reverb in the Nova but the tube reverb in my amps have that in spades. A fabulous pedal for sure.

I had a Nova until recently and loved it for a long time, but I got really bored of it being really overtly digital sounding all the time. Ended up selling it to have the option of some tape echo sounds too, because I found the Nova's 'analogue' and 'tape' approximations to be nothing more than a 'dark' and 'darker' very crisp digital delay.

It's great for that sound though, it's really high fidelity and easy to use.

unforunately, yes... usually not much of either, but yes, i'll need to have both on tap. i was thinking of of maybe the EP and the Verbzilla as a not too expensive option.

im currently using a vintage 1/2 rack Boss SE50 for these functions and its really nice for those functions, but its not very live friendly in terms of pedal board access:



and now that the pedal board is built, it s also not liking everything else that feeds into it -- seems to give nasty digital clip at even low input levels. it also takes up a lot of real estate.. :(

so im starting to research other back up ideas if i can't get these se50 issues resolved....

The Echo Park and Verbzilla are both great pedals, and the combo gives a lot of options should you ever need them. Just be aware that they both need either their own seperate power supply unless you have something like a PP2 that has isolated outputs. They really don't like sharing power on a daisychain.
