Rockett's Alien Echo would be my favourite delay IF...

    It didn't lose the high end when it is switched on!!!

    Such a shame 'cause it is such a great sounding delay. The Trex Replica suffers from this same 'issue'!

    I like my delays to be at unity and with no tone difference.

    What are some other great delays that adhere to this?

    Maybe you prefer digital delays...

    Can it be run at 18v? I've found that the delay's I have not bonded with immediately I've switched to 18v (when they can take it) and found they were much better. I wasn't a fan of the Catalinbread Belle Epoch until I took it to 18v, same with the Echorec.

    I like the Erec at 18v also, but the Belle works for me best at 9v. The Rockett does not mention being able to run at 18v. I'd ask then before trying.

    Completely agree. Never plug into a higher voltage without finding out officially if you can do it or not. Easy way to brick a pedal if they're not made to take it.

    Yea my 2nd Belle Epoch I tried at 18v and love it. I'll admit it's won a spot on my board. Makes my Flight Time sound thin now.

    ...fwiw my alien echo does not lose high end when i use it...or any other part of my tone...thats one of the main reasons i like it so much...it is one of the older ones in the uncoated mill finish so maybe there are some differences in the circuit if you've got a newer one...i just tried to get mine to change my guitars tone with a variety of settings but any change was undetectable....i was running it through a vintage Princeton with a Weber speaker...sounds glorious...

    Considering that is the first line in their online description, it would seem that crystal clear repeats was not part of the design concept, and may not be the right delay for you.
