Delay/looper/almost-flanger, non-editable effects, no tap delay: Its starts to be outdated!
Audio only, one input and 3 outputs (dry, mix, phase) and also three connectors for control via footswitch.


The manual has lots of blanks, you need to scribble what you find on your own so you don't forget it. All buttons are on the front panel, it has no presets.


I hadn't used it for some time and its warmth surprised me! It's very nice, it makes you want to use it. Excellent for guitar.


Granted, as delay and looper, you can find much more modern stuff! (I bought it around 1995) But it has some nice manual controls that make it a pretty surreal tool. Bill Frisell ─ before turning to a cleaner sound and music ─ made a wonderful use of it (the RDS 8000 or 4000 pedal version).
