Does anyone still use the Timefactor?

I have the chance to grab one in a trade. Just wondering if it is still considered a good delay? Does eventide still write updates for it?
Sounds pretty good?
Easy to operate?
What's your favorite thing about it?
Anything you do not like about it?
Thanks guys

They still appear on boards in the pedalboard threads. Eventide has announced an update for this spring which will add reverse to the looper algorithm; I'm not sure if other features or bug fixes are planned for that release. Personally, I'd be more likely to buy a TF than a Timeline - Eventide seems to design pedals more to my sensibilities.

Lots of us use the H9, which has the TF algorithms in it. Sounds terrific to me - I prefer the way it sounds to the Timeline, which I sold.

I have the TF. Love it. I think there is a slight learning curve but once you get, it's incredibly easy. Eventide makes some great stuff. Would love a Space too.

I have the Timefactor and love it. There is a bit of a learning curve as with most programmable, preset pedals. However, once you spend a little time with it it's easy to work with. I use presets across the digital delay, analog and tape algorithms, and really like the sound. The dual delay feature is also very easy to use.

I do. It's top notch. Just a little of the hype has disappeared from it due to its age. But Eventide still do updates.

It's actually fairly easy to use, but like a lot of pedals with this many features, with some attention paid to learning about it you can unravel it and discover its intricacies and get more out of it.

I run a timefactor, space, and h9. Needless to say I'm a big fan of the eventide boxes/sounds. I do a lot of ambient wash stuff and also general worship guitar playing. Programming the tf is easy to understand and simple to get good sounds out of. Just switched mine to stereo and am loving it!

My favorite delay of all time. Very hi-fi and 3D sounding. The control you have over the tone is amazing and the mod's are generally top notch. Eventide was looking well ahead when they came up with this pedal. I always recommend using it with an aux switch to get the most out of it though.

Oh yeah, love my TF, I think it sounds better than the timeline, just by a hair! Killer delay!

would it matter if no one used it? Wouldn't its abilities/functions still exist?

maybe the title should be: "is the time factor still cool?" or "TGP approved?"

My main concern was if Eventide is still updating it., or if they have moved their attention to the H9.

It's irrelevant at this point anyway because the guy sold the Timefactor on eBay.

Went from a DD20 to a TF. As always with Delays that can do so much there is quite the learning curve. I almost gave up on the pedal until I got the aux switch... then it changed my life. I love the TF now!

I haven't tried the alternatives (strymon), I just bought an used TF and it works absolutely great. I think this delay really shines on the loop of an amp. Mine is in parallel so the TF it really works wonders.

i love my TF. recently got one to replace my dd20. (love the dd20, but just wanted to try something else)

i agree that it REALLY helps to have the aux switch. takes up more space on my board, but i don't really mind. i actually prefer to do most of my stomping/tapping on a cheap aux switch thats easily replaceable than always tap on the actual pedal.
