I use my DD3 for longer delays... but I’ve been experimenting with a tc Echobrain analog delay for some swirly shorter delays but lately it’s replaced my Yellow Fall as my main slap back .... I also have been using my Tera Echo as almost a slap back verb if that makes sense.... which is nice cuz it lets me use the freeze function to hold notes and not get too spacey....
If I wanted to run a simple board I’d just use the DD3 and the Tera Echo and I may do that soon for a simplified live board. Just have the TE2 do that slap back Verb thing and use the DD3 for lingers delays. I may want try a carbon copy as well soon too ...just cuz lol .. I think we all want to try stuff just cuz. Speaking of which I have a Joyo Voodoo Octave I grabbed yesterday for 25$ to play with
Timeline. Was using an El Cap for awhile and that's still my fave, but I felt a little limited and wanted midi control. Using the Timeline a TON now. Different preset per song, mostly using the Digital, dTape, and dBucket algorithms.
I mostly run relay for prominent effect, longer times with only 1 or two repeats and mixed pretty high. Rarely slap back, sometimes to create a drone/bed
I like delay before drive but have been running it after fuzz (I’m new to fuzz, so I’m playing with lots of things differently lately - and, yes I need to Velcro one pedal, now that I know I’m keeping it haha).
I feel like the MF Delay was made to run before the amp and it’s great there (for me, of course)
DD-500, last in the chain before a clean amp when using distortion pedals or last in the FX loop if using preamp distortion.
I like DD-2 mode, usually only two to three repeats, generally delay time either 1s but very quiet, 450ms and a little louder but still quiet, or dotted 8th tap tempo at about 70% of direct volume. For most songs I have the treble on the repeats dialled down quite a bit.
Strymon El Capistan usually for subtle 1.5 repeats to fill out sound. Sometimes I crank up the mix and get weird with it, other times I use the looping function and create some textures to play with/over. When I'm not using my deluxe reverb, and use my JMP or AC30 I'll use the built in reverb. Really useful pedal with great tones.
I use an Ibanez AD-80 with the mix set low and moderate repeats for a Floydish reverby sound, and an Echo Park for distinct repeats, dotted 8ths, and general weirdness.
I recently traded a Carbon Copy (which I've never liked) for one of the Ibanez Mini Analog Delays. It makes a great backup for the ancient and sometimes wonky AD-80.

Going through a phase for a while now where I use more reverb, less delay. I used to use delay as a pseudo reverb, now with all of the insane reverb pedal options out there I find myself doing the opposite.
