    I'm interested to get an analog delay cause delay is the effect i use most and dont wanna lag the g-system all the time with me.

    i'm looking for warm (maybe dark) delay for my leads (the tape delay of my g-system works nice for what I'm looking), the Maxon Ad-999 seems to be "the ticket" except that it looks like it doesnt work in effect loops, or am i wrong?

    i use mostly amps distortion (my mark iv actually) and need to have the delay at the effect loop..

    what other units do you recomend? if the ad-999 doesnt work that way...

    thanks

    I was ready to order it, i was one-click away...

    then i saw this:

    http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=205051&highlight=maxon+delay+effect+loop


    the last post from OscrDGrch there points out that it cant be used in loops..

    i checked the maxon site and didnt find any information if it works or not and at the manual, they only describe the connection before the amp...

    so i dont know, does it work or not?

    thanks

    I am not sure I use mine before the amp as well but I am curious and a free bump.
