    Just saw this on a Winter NAMM thread over at HC:

    [​IMG]

    Looks like it includes dotted eighth as a standard feature. Assume the new middle switch allows you to switch between two different delay times while on the "Mod" setting.

    Anyone have more details?

    Oh cool. I wonder if they'll mod mine to have the middle footswitch.

    I posted that pic.
    I talked to them about a mod.
    Mike quickly popped off the bottom and showed me the new circuitboard.
    They tried like hell, but the older boards go right under where the switch needs to be.
    IIRC, they were doing some mods that involved toggles and expression pedals and whatnot to the original, so maybe this mod can be done, just not in the same layout as the ML2.



    The new phaser was there too, and it sounded GOOD! :)

    Details -

    -Delay Time and Feedback Time have expression pedal jacks
    -Both LEDs are dual-lights to tell the tempo speed at all times, and whether you're in Mod Mode or Tempo Mode.
    -Toggle for the Dotted Eights

    All I can remember right now. I think Mike said they'd be available pretty soon too!

    Can you switch between 2 different delay times, or must you switch between a delay time and a delay time with the modulation added?

    I've been waiting so long I've pretty much given up on it. Did you hear the vibe setting? Was it univibe or leslie? Was it really, really good or was it basically a phase with a chorus setting?

    Pretty cool!

    I love my mod'ed out ML including the dotted 8th toggle and expression jacks.

    The new middle switch looks interesting and is love to know what if does exactly.

    I wonder if the pedal's tone has changed from the first one?

    due to the fact that I don't see a toggle for the modulation anywhere on the pedal, I'm gonna guess the new switch is to go from regular delay to modulated delay.

    The vib setting on the phaser is not univibe, but a vibrato type setting

    The Diamond guys were the nicet I met at NAMM, free tshirts for everyone!

    The phaser has a vibrato setting.
    On the ML2, yes you toggle between the tapped delay and the modulated delay.

    I don't think the mod is available for the original. I read somewhere that the switches would not fit in with the original circuit board.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen some ML1s with a toggle on the side for dotted eights.
    Just contact them and ask. Super Cool Folks! :)

    I got a quote for a new unit with the dotted eighth mod for $600-ish plus a custom color
    might as well wait now

    but how long?

    so is the new ML2 actually have some changes in the delay circuit and sonic characteristics or is it just a full loaded mod version of the ML1?
