Timeline users - good settings for lead?

It's kind of odd for me to post this as I've been a delay junkie for years, owned dozens of the units, and use a healthy dosage in my music. I'm much more of a textural rhythm player than a lead player, but I do take the occasional stab at some licks here and there.

I've always admired good lead tones with a bit of subtle delay for color/thickening, but never really used it myself. I expect plenty here are using their TLs in this manner to great effect; if you have a second, please post your favorite lead presets!

I'll try them all and my favorite will win a spot on my DMC-6 for instant recall :)

There's this short digital delay preset someone put up at the preset thread. Works great for this application.

I think I must have a completely different approach to the creative process because I usually let the piece of music dictate the necessity of one type of delay texture or another, not a predetermined generic "lead tone" patch. But maybe that's just me. :)

YMMV, with other genres like 'da blooze' and all that...

I like the Bank 00a for a digital delay lead sound.
I re did the first 25 or so, but I likes the duck settings for leads too. the 17a slap.

Thanks for the suggestions. I already blew out the first 30 banks or so of the factory presets, but I think they repeat at bank 50, so I'll take a peak.

Starfish - your approach doesn't sound that different from mine, but since I've never used delay on a lead/seldom take leads to begin with, I was interested in hearing sounds that others consider to be good for the purpose. No blues going down here. Not that there's anything wrong with it :)
