    Howdy,


    I am setting up a stereo rig, and was looking for a dealy. The initial signal split occurs with a Dreatone Stereo chours, so I need a dealy to put after it that has stereo inputs. Any suggestions. Preferably TrueByPass, and Ping Pong effects. Analog would be nice but not a req. Minimum delay time would be about 600ms......anything longer is fine.


    Thanks!

    im sure the Line6 Echopark has stereo ins and outs, and has a ping pong operation. its digital. there are some good clips on the line6 site. tap tempo, modulation, delay model type, and some other features (the trails are really cool!!!)

    I have a similar situation... My signal splits with the Deluxe Moon Phaser before the Deluxe Memory Man.

    I am planning my next WOBO custom unit that will allow me to "flip" the wet/dry outputs of the phaser and I will be able to assign the Deluxe Memory Man to either of them. Additionally, I will probably run it straight through the bypass because on the switching system they made for routing all of the signals through a loop station, organ emulation effects and to my stereo amps, there is an independent echo channel, so I can have the echo and dry signal running as different sounds. I will also be able to "swap" the outputs of my delay, so I can run a normal blended wet signal through the normal channels as well (for looping, since the echo channel is independent of the looper). If you can come up with a rough design for what you want, WOBO can build it for you, they were great to work with. http://www.woboge.com

    This is the unit they built for me already... you can pretty much figure out how it helps run a stereo setup, you might benefit from a similar design, I like it because I can layer/stack different sounds to the different amps, kind of like a master output control center. "Z" goes to my Dr. Z and "L" goes through the switchable "organ" effects loop with the POG and chord & note sustainer to an amp driving my leslie cabinet. I can engage the loop station's input, either from the clean or dirty channels and its output is always on. Additionally, I plan on getting an E-H 2880 stereo looper and feed it the signal going to each amp, which will be great (and I will be even more broke). If you want, send me a message and I could whoop up a hypothetical design for your specific system that you could have built for you... it's a fun way to go and you feel like you're Gilmour or something every time you look down at it...

    Best of luck, have fun.

    +1 on the DD-20!! I use one to split the signal going into two amps playing at the same time! Sounds pretty good to me!!

    Either of the BOSS DD-20 or the Line 6 Tone Core Echo Park will do the job well. I have one of each in one of my stereo rigs. I have them on a Furman SPB-8 Stereo Pedalboard with the following on them.

    Line 6 Tone Core Uber Metal
    BOSS OD-20 Drive Zone
    BOSS RT-20 Rotary
    BOSS DD-20 Delay
    BOSS EV-5 expression pedal for the RT-20
    Line 6 Tone Core Space Echo
    Line 6 Tone Core Tap Tremolo.
    Line 6 Tone Core Echo Park.
    Line 6 Tone Core Verzilla.

    Run this into either two Mesa Subway Rockets or two Soldano Atomic 16's or two Fender Pro Junior;s or all of them at once.

    I'll +1 the DD-20! Don't know if you can find a ping-pong delay that actually is True Bypass....

    You could run a non-stereo delay into a Gig-FX Chopper, that would be cool.

    Just setup a stereo rig with my DD20 yesterday- works great! The ping pong delay is cool. Be careful to use regular TS guitar cable- I was using a TRS patch cable going into the rigth input of the DD20 and it wasn't putting out signal on that side.

    +1 but you'll have to wait a year for it to show up. :)

    The Line 6 DL-4 has a true relayed bypass mode and has stereo ins and outs.

    Also the Echoczar doesn't do the ping pong thing - it has "stereo" outputs but they are wet/dry, not left/right.

    Is there an analog delay that does ping pong? You could do pseudo ping-pong with a panner set up in stereo.

    Wet/dry outputs on the Deluxe Memory Man, adjust the "blend" to 100% wet against 100% dry and run each out to separate amps.

    The repeats won't pingpong running a wet/dry setup.. you'll get the initial signal out of one amp and all the repeats out of the other. If you're just doing a one repeat/slapback thing then this is a good way to "fake" a stereo pingpong setup, but it won't behave the same way when you crank the feedback up. Just food for thought.

    If its a 3 speaker stereo wet/dry setup, then the dry signal goes to a center channel. The left and right wet signals are discreet stereo, even when 'derived' from a delay or chorus. In that case, the ping pong will work, and be very effective.

    What pedal mentioned in this thread has 3 outputs? I've done this with a parallel mixer placed before my DL-4, it sounds great, but I'm not aware of a delay pedal that has this sort of routing option built in.
