I have owned an H9 for a little over a year now and haven't looked back. I bought a DMC-6 to control it and it has made it a lot easier to use. Recently I've been kicking around the idea of getting a delay that has midi so I can control it with the DMC-6. I've been thinking about getting another Alter Ego X4 because I loved the first one I have and I am a fan of TC Electronics time-based effects offerings. Has anyone controlled the alter ego with any of Disasterareaamps products. I'm sure it's fairly limited in what it can do. The ideal delay would probably be a timeline but I don't really want to fork out that much for a delay (or could I justify it to my wife). Is there any other delays with midi control... lets say under or close to $200 I should consider?
