I'm looking for a consensus (good luck, I know) on the best tap temp delay for around $400 or under. I'm considering the Memory Lane 2 (and other variations), Flight Time, E2D, TimeLine, Panther Cub, etc...
honestly I don't really know enough about delay to know exactly. I know I want tap tempo. And I like warm tones. The features of the Flight Time appeal to me, but I'm not sure digital has a warm enough tone.
FWIW, you may want to add an El Capistan to the list for consideration. I own that and a Timeline and, while the Timeline can do all sorts of cool stuff, I like the sound and feel of the El Cap better. Plus, you can build yourself or buy a favorite switch and you get one preset. Great sounding pedal, better feel to me, smaller footprint.
Providence chrono dl-4. Has two presets, tap tempo, external tap tempo available which works in preset mode, digital read out of BPMs or Milliseconds, 8 time divisions, and a high end roll off to give pristine repeats or more analog.
I had the MML 2 and really liked it. But it was very big and i only used joust one "side" of it and I had a hard time taping its tempo with songs. Learned after I sold it that it reacts to every second tap.
I now have the El Capistan and really like it. Its not as warm sounding but it really is a great delay once you learn how to use it to your preferences. Definitely worth considering.
