    Hi,

    I'm rebuilding my pedalboard and looking for the delay pedal to end all delay pedals! I currently use a TC Electronics Flashback (with audio strum tap tempo) but am looking for something with a normal tap tempo switch and lots of fun features but as close to an analog sound as possible.

    I have tried the Timeline and it is pretty amazing but maybe a little cold sounding to my ears so I am undecided on it. The current contenders are the Echolution 2 Deluxe and the Delay Llama Supreme (when it is released). Any thoughts? I have not tried either of these pedals as they are not in stock anywhere near me but I think the Echolution is edging into the lead at the mo..

    Thanks!

    Echolution sounds like the one for you. I would take it over the TL. Sounded warmer to my ears.

    The Korg SDD300 deserves to be in the mix-great sounding and not too "digital".

    If you're spending that kind of money, you might also look into the Yamaha UDStomp. You have to buy used, but it is 8 delay taps with complete control over all of them!

    Sold the Timeline and bought a Flight Time delay.... It sounds amazing and airy! I never bonded with the Timeline, very sterile sounding.

    Not yet released, but here's the only (to my knowledge) clip of it :

    Thx for vid, Llama supreme looks really cool. I'd say go for that one! I'm not a big fan of those digital programmable preset type delays.

    Forgot to mention the Echolution 2 deluxe filters are so awesome.

    H9 would be a good option, too. But you'll need an iOS device and probably want a MIDI controller. Very warm, lively delays.
