    is anyone using two delay pedals? one short, other medium. i'm using live one now (cd10) and i was thinking about getting another one for soloing in just two or three songs, not too long, just a little bit more than the other , but i'm afraid about singing and dancing with my pedalboard...
    it would be too much for me i think... anyone?

    Yes. DD2 on all the time for ambience (slap-back) and Echopark for silliness-just on a few songs.

    Got a Replica for long digital stuff and a ad999 for slapback and ambient stuff. Sweet little combo.

    yep - I'm with the gang on this one, having used at least one digital & one analog delay on the big board for years..

    A buddy of mine gets incredible mileage out of two Ibanez DE7s, one set for long, spacey trails & the other to slap-back. Sounds pretty cool stacked, too. At around 50 bucks each, this simple setup gets my *bang-for-buck* award:AOK

    thanks,
    do you change it in the middle of a song? for soloing and go back...

    DML for ambience, TimeFactor for delay-dependent riffs

    Yes. I use a Keeley AD-9 for spatial stuff, and a DD-5 for digital tap tempo stuff.

    Well, not really 2 pedals but I use a DD-20 for, well, everything my Echoplex EP-3 can't do.

    I've had a few other delay pedals this year but I always come back to the "old" and the "new"

    Yep, I use an AP-2 for the shorter less than 300ms delays and a MP-DBD for the longer. I've searched for years and for me this is the perfect combo.

    I don't really get it that some guitarist use a DD-20 for a long delay and a Maxonad-999 (analog) for a short repeat.

    I would use it the other way around, but to each is own I guess.

    What do you guys mean by using one for "ambience"? I have a SMM on the way that I was going to experiment with alongside my Nova. I typically use the Nova for pretty blatant, delay-driven stuff, and would like to use the SMM for something else. Can you describe the sounds you're talking about and how you get them (basic explanation of settings)?

    "Ambience" is basically anything but your clean, straightforward delay (at least in my book). When you turn the delay volume down on pretty much any analog delay, you get an atmospheric sort of sound that isn't merely a straightforward repeat of what you're playing...you know, that airy aura of sound. That's one form of ambience. I've personally never owned a SMM, but curehardy has quite a few great vids on youtube messing around with the pedal. The feedback on the SMM is the best of the best IMO, and the chorus/vibrato settings are another great way of getting some cool sounds to fill out your tone. A SMM+Nova is a great combo for ambience/functionality! Keep experimenting :)

    Eventide TimeFactor and the Retro-Sonic. Holy drooling heavenly angels of tone.

    Hi,

    I'm very interested in getting the retro-sonic, but if it had 900 ms of delay I would purchased it right away....
    Still thinking.....arghhhhhh

    I use a Line 6 DL4, which might not have that all-out analog tone, but it does give you three delays @ in one box. Best thing you can have in a live-situation. In the studio... well that's all different...
