    Just got mine! Works great with my 100% MIDI board/amp setup!

    anyone else getting easily distorting repeats? it's not harsh, but the signal quickly degrades and garbles by the 2nd or 3rd repeats. This is even with low output pickups (tele) and correct power supply.

    This thing is AWESOME. Very impressed.

    This doesn't give a clear picture of the pedal but this is me messing with the Tonal Recall and Moog Cluster Flux and Flux Liquid Ambience

    My apologies if this has been covered, but are folks finding that the Chase Bliss can nail a proper DMM vibe or the Skreddy echo's vibe? I demo'd one today and really liked it, but I wasn't able to really get my head around how to get "under the hood" so to speak, so I barely scratched the surface. One of the presets it came with sounded a lot like the modulation on my Moog 104M. Pretty extreme mod that was effecting the pitch in a radical way.

    I'm interested to hear folks opinions.

    Got mine today! Absolutely no regrets selling my DM-2 and DMMTT1100.

    Between this and my MF104M I'm in midi controlled analog delay heaven.

    That's the one thing I'm sweating. I don't know if I can let go of my DM-2, but find it silly to keep it around if I get a Tonal Recall.

    I really do like the idea of going down the MIDI rabbit hole, something I've never done. being able to recall presets could help me out a lot live.

    Mine is supposed to show up today.

    @Ruiner - The modulation on your demo sounds fantastic.

    Thanks man! It's got a healthy dose of the Tonal Recall modulation going on, the Cluster Flux if providing the square wave chorus filtered effect and the Flux Liquid Ambience as the sub octave reverb thing going on! :D

    Re the Skreddy, I posted on that here:

    The short version - they are pretty different.

    I'm loving the Tonal Recall, but bought it to replace my DMMTT (both being tap analog delays), but now realize it won't. The DMMTT is much brighter, capable of more rhythmic playing and has much more an ethereal modulation to it. The Tonal Recall has much more of a darker/soupier trail off...and it also trails off into darkness much quicker. Really liking it for more dark, brooding ambient stuff because it really lays below the surface amazingly but it doesn't take the place of the DMMTT. Also, because of it's inherent and unique qualities, also not sure it unseats slap back kings like the DM-2. As for the Skreddy Echo, it's been my go-to soloing pedal forever...will have to see if the Tonal Recall can try out for that duty. It might...but typically haven't found an analog delay that sits as well behind the notes as quickly as the Skreddy.

    I think Joel has given us a really unique take on a tap analog delay...still need to play it much more!

    Didn't say it sounds like my DM-2 or DMMTT - just that I have no regrets selling them. Btwn the TR, MF104M and DD-500 I have full midi control of every delay sounds I can imagine.

    for the dark repeats maybe with a true bypass blender, the mix at 100% on the tonal recall and a little EQ with more mids or highs you could get the perfect delay for your taste ?

    I find that my starting point is with the tone control cranked, and then I can get darker from there if need be. One of my favorite settings is:
    Mix: 12:00
    Repeats: 1:00
    Delay Time: Quarter Notes
    Tone: Max
    Rate: 1:00
    Depth: 11:00

    This pedal has no drive control or preamp like a DMM correct?

    Just got mine. Gave it 30 mins to figure it out and compare it to the Moog MF-104msd and DMM I have on hand. They're different but really on par with each other. The TR is brighter than the Moog and seems to hit the first few repeats harder but it's not as bright as my big box DMM.

    I had pretty high expectations for this pedal going in and my initial impression is that I'm not disappointed at all. It's got its own character for sure but it certainly stands up to the best analog delays I've played.

    Yeah--I got mine today too. Twisted a few knobs for a minute and got lost for an hour. Beautiful tones right off the bat. The build quality is really amazing--first pedal I've had that makes me want to fondle it. Another reason to be a proud Minnesotan:p.
