I've had my SD for two weeks now and agree-I always think it's interesting that folks find the Superdelay so hard to use.
If you've logged any time w/the Line 6 delay, it will be second nature for you.
It looks really complicated, but in reality, it's quite simple to use.
I feel the same way about the TimeFactor. All this talk of "sub menus" etc... (not just in this thread, BTW) mentioning things like that makes the unit sound so intimidating. Are there menus inside? Yes. You typically set them once when you first get the unit (things like if you want the unit to be TB or buffered) and then you rarely need to go there again. If you do, it's not during a performance, and if/when you need to acess menus, it's easy to do anyway!I always think it's interesting that folks find the Superdelay so hard to use.
Mine ended with the Timefactor. Now I can obsess over other more important things like the search for the right dirt pedal(s)!Ugh. Does the delay search never end?!
This one is going to put some serious pressure on my Super Delay. I don't dislike my Empress at all, but I have yet to find a delay that makes me go, "Oh yes, this is the one for me." My old AD-900 came the closest years ago. I struggle with what I want vs. what I need in a delay, and what I want actually makes me dislike a delay because it becomes way too complicated...and I like it simple.
This is where the timefactor fails for me... you can only scroll one way through the presets unless you add a peripheral, fail fail fail, if you have heaps of presets this would be epically annoying, what good is 100 presets if this is how you have to access them.
oops. I was unaware that they had corrected that flaw (sold mine almost a year ago). Thats great that they did because in my mind that was the biggest down fall of the pedal. hmmm i almost want one again now...That is inaccurate. With the latest SW Update, you can scroll forwards and backwards and you can limit the number of active presets, up to 100.
I agree with pretty much everything else you said.
