Is it possible to get big, lush delay sounds with pedals?

    If so, which one(s) and at what settings? Just curious what others are doing.

    I like my H&K replex, but I dial it in at almost tapey in front of my 2204's, gives me that Pagey / Lifeson thingy ;)

    Memoryman or a Memory Lane will sort you out easy. I think your looking for the modulated delay sound, right?

    I have to admit that I'm not sure what "modulated delay" means. I'm looking forward to learning. What I'm after is big, lush chords and single notes, not repeats.

    Big and lush? A bit like a chorus pedal does? In stereo? Why don't you get a stereo chorus? The memoryman can do chorus too.

    Modulated delay is when you apply modulation, chorus or vibrato, on the repeats. It was designed to mimick the warble on old tape echoes.

    My old Memoryman could do very lush and big sounds. Also so with the modulation turned up even the delay repeats seem to fade abit, just giving a massive quivering mass of sound. It works.

    diamond memory lane is the king for floor delays

    the amount of control is amazing (especially with an expression pedal)

    the modulation seemes to be a simple type of chorusing of the delay signal............that along with the "very" tameable self oscillation.....

    the pedal is a work of art

    I feel like I can get some great lush stuff happening. In those cases my effect in the chain in order are Analogman Bi-Comprosser>Fulltone Fulldrive 2>Analogman Bi-Chorus> Analogman Modded Boss DD-5 usually set to dotted eighth's> DLS echo tap set either to 50-100ms short delay or tapped in quarter notes> Dr Z Maz jr.18 Reverb usually off.

    A compressor has a lot to do w/it, too.

    A Dyna-Comp into a DLS Chorus Vibe and stereo out into a DLS EchoTap into two amps certainly fits in the big and lush category...

    Big and lush, hmmmmmm.

    Combine delay, chorus, and reverb.

    Go Yamaha

    UD Stomp
    SPX90
    REX50
    even the Magic Stomp
