Ok, I love the SMMH. Great for all kinds of delay duties and great tone. The one thing that really disappoints me is the modulation. So, I'm thinking about adding a second delay that does have great modulation for times when I'm playing ambient passages. Enter the Deluxe Memory Man. It is the champion of this. So I thought about just adding that to the lineup. Then I see the Subdecy Echobox. Wow. Perfect. Smaller foot print and will also sound great. But then I got to thinking: instead of buying a second delay, why not just sell the Smmh and get a Timefactor? It has great modulation and can do cool reverby things. Seems like it would cover my "U2-esque" demands as well as my thick, ambient, volume-swelly demands. The critical point for me is this: does the Timefactor have mojo that would compete with the Smmh and DMM? I'm worried that it's just a computer in a box and will sound that way. Here's the pro's I can see regarding everything each unit: Smmh and DMM/Echobox wins: live tweakability more cool things to look at on my board if one delay breaks down, I still have another Timefactor wins: MIDI switchability (huge when I get a MIDI loop switcher) software upgrades useful display smaller foot print than 2 delays The deal maker/breaker for me is mojo and tone. It seems like in this area the Smmh/Dmm combo would the Timefactor beat -- preserves my undelayed tone well and creates delay that is organic. Maybe I'm wrong? Delayheads, unite! P.S. I don't care about bypassed tone because the delay is always in a true-bypass loop when not in use.
