How do you set the parameters of your delay pedal to get a smooth, soaring, sustaining lead tone without hearing each individual echo? I don't want it to sound like The Edge, more like Gary Moore.
Tried this last night and it makes a huge difference. I was leaving my delay signal way too bright. Great tip :BEERDark delays blend with the tone. Bright delays stand out. This is true of reverb as well.
You can have a lot of delay on your guitar but make it less noticeable by turning down the treble on the delay itself or using a dark patch/mode like analog or tape.
Typically for spacious leads I set my DD-20 to tape mode (less bright than standard not as dull as analog). 425 ms delay time, 3 repeats, and delay level to taste but never more than half of the dry signal volume.
By comparison, the edge uses bright delays that are nearly as loud as the dry signal.
I can't remember if these are 100% correct, you will need to adjust.What would these settings look like on either an Analogman AR20DL(300ms) or CMATMODS Deeelay?
