Is it all that?
Is it all what?
And a bag of chips!
2 bags of chips! And a Mountian Dew!
More like a good PB&J...with a banana.
Had one for two months now. Haven't even thought about replacing it. It's a keeper.
I love mine.
I was wondering what delay pedals you had/tried before settling on the Memorylane? Thanks
Two complaints I have heard are that it lacks headroom and the repeats are thin???
Where'd you hear that? Compared to my EH Deluxe Memory Man, it's got tons of headroom - it'll take lots of input without clipping.
And the EQ circuit is extremely flexible, w/both bass & treble boosting available - you want thin? it'll do thin, but you can also get a thick & creamy delay by twisting the tone knob counterclockwise.
It's the best analog delay I've owned yet.
I'm a total delay junky. My entire board's pretty much distortion (OD/fuzz) and delay (analog & digital).
My digital delays are mainly Lexicon & Digitech, tho' I've had others (Boss, Danelectro, Alesis)
An ElectroHarmonix MemoryMan's the only other analog delay I own, but the Diamond's superior IMO.
I am waiting (8 months now) for an Echoczar, but I'm sure I'll be keeping the MemoryLane. It's got tons of personality, and some great features, too.
I'll be receiving mine tonight and will report in. I've already owned the following delays:
TRex Replica : Very powerful, very clean, no modulation
Echo Tap: changes your tone a bit, two channels essentially . . . great for live work, no modulation.
Also had many other less expensive delays, none were keepers.
I bought the ML because of the clip with the modulation that blends the delays into a reverb-like decay. Hope I'm happy tonight
I have the DL4 and DD-3 and the ML sounds better than either of them. The DL4 has more options and I've never had a problem with mine but the ML sounds much richer.
Is the memory lane in stereo? I would
Is the memory lane in stereo? I would like to know because I like to use my delay on two amps.
It has a wet out and a dry out, but doesn't do wet to 2 amps yet. I say "yet" because apparently they have something in the works that is used in conjunction with the ML for that purpose.
No, mono - but Michael @ Diamond's working on a 'Mix' box to create panning/stereo effects w/two amps using the loop/exp. pedal jack on the ML.
how does this thing sound in comparison to an AD-900? Any one own both? I know the memory blows the maxon away in terms of features, but how about sound? I love my Maxon, but the features of the memory lane sounds great. any comparison?
Just got my ML tonight . .first impressions are very good . .. girthy-large-musical . . . . . . . .more to come tomorrow when I can turn my rig up a bit.
It's already the best delay I've owned !
