Delay dilemma

I'm currently using a TC Electronic Nova Delay.
It's pretty cool, but i'm getting tired of it and I don't feel like i'm very creative with delays anymore.

I want to replace it and I was checking out Visual Sound's Dual Tap Delay.

Thoughts? It looks super sweet.

I love mine! Been the only delay on my board since it came out. Sounds great!


Do you have any experience with the Nova Delay?
If so, can the Dual Tap Delay cover pretty much anything the Nova can do and more?

I've owned both and I don't think the VS will help with creativity, its a good solid simple delay, but in less you're trying to simplify your delay I would go with something else.

Okay, thanks! I also don't want to go too far away from the price range of those 2.

If price didn't matter, what would you suggest?

Line 6 m5. It can do everything a dl4 can do+ subdivisons, exact bpm/ ms and has 30 presets.

I have the TC Repeater which I believe is the same thing without the presets.
It is a great delay but I like to use other delays also.
For the money not many can touch it.

Repeater has vibrato modulation which makes it a whole different animal. Much nicer in tape mode. Stick with the ND. It's just gas talking to you IMO.

what about DMM TT or DMB TT ?? if you need inspiration from a delay both are among the best

Yeah! I totally thought about that.
I put the Nova up on craigslist and I had someone offer me a 90's Memory Man Deluxe, it needed to be repaired but apparently it's a cheap fix.

I'm EXTREMELY tempted seeing as that is a very sought after delay pedal.
Is it worth the repair? And can it do what the nova can?

No it cannot do subdivisions, cannot do trails, cannot do pristine digital delays, it cannot do reverse nor dynamic delay, it cannot be tap tempo'd to the rhythm of your song, it cannot do presets and it cannot do a true stereo in. It also runs at an unorthodox 24V with white noise/hiss which is well known.

Besides the actual tone of the circuit, what the DMM can do is self-oscillate.

Give the pedals a go before you realize gas is just getting to you.

Good point, well I might purchase it to put along side of the nova delay..

what the fix it needs?? the 90s ones where not-TB so the are messed up very often, the DMM can do chorusing and vibrato sounds its a very trick-box delay full of sounds, Im more a MAxon analog delay guy but I think it will help your needs there lots of tests on youtube give 'em a try
