I've been through many. Carbon Copy, DD-7, DL-4, Nova Delay, Brigadier v1, Brigadier v2, Timeline The Timeline was great - but just too much for me. Programming and layers aren't my preference or style. Brigadier was great - but I couldn't get over the "warped pitch shift" change with tapping a new tempo while engaged. Never liked the Nova - similar to the Timeline. DL-4 was the my longest survivor. But it's huge and I didn't have it moded so there was some obvious tone suckage. DD-7 was meh. Carbon Copy didn't have a tap tempo. So here's what I'm looking for: Compact design (PTjr potentially Mini soon) Onboard tap tempo True Bypass Dotted 8th setting No warped pitch shift when tapping in a new tempo while engaged No presets(layering/programming) I need to look down at my board and see exactly what the current setting are to adjust I think I'm down to the Diamond Memory Lane Jr and the Empress Tape Delay. I'll mostly be using it for digital delay sounds - I may fiddle with modulation or settings to sound a little more "tape-ish" but mostly just need clean repeats. MLjr seems to be far more popular - but the Tape Delay has just a few more features that 1.) may come in handy 2.) may annoying me. Also on both of these delays - I've watched almost every demo and searched for the answer in the forums. Can anyone tell me what happens when you tap a different timed delay while the effect is active? Does it "warp" and pitchshift to the new tempo - does it cut out - or does it set new tempo seamlessly. May be a deal breaker. I was under the impression they both shift without warping. What's the consensus here? Anything else I should be looking at?
