" Oldschool - but excellent"

Maxon AD200Published on 01/07/11 at 08:24

This is an analog delay in a format a little bit special, it is not in a rack, but the problem very well elsewhere. It is also very light, it surprises even when worn. I guess that's just the technology of a delay pedal as a Maxon AD-900 vintage put into a plastic rack designed for the studio.

Most of the 70 delays were based around the same IC, the Panasonic MN3005, a BBD delay that allows up to about 400msec. That's all analog, so it blows a little, but it is also what makes the charm of this delay.

Mine is 110V (Japanese version) as this delay is very rare in Europe. In terms of connectivity, it has two entries in the format Jack, entry No. 1 is scheduled for a microphone, entry......

Mine is 110V (Japanese version) as this delay is very rare in Europe. In terms of connectivity, it has two entries in the format Jack, entry No. 1 is scheduled for a microphone, entry No. 2 for an instrument or microphone, there is a small switch that lets you choose between the two sensitivities . There are 2 outputs, one with sound effects and other dry, allowing it to make a good mix between the two sources. There is also still a footswitch that allows the effect to trigger or the trigger. So much for the connection.

Do not try to tap delay, etc. ...

UTILIZATION

There may be some opportunities more than in the form of a delay pedal (the issue of place), but the configuration is very simple. Both inputs have a knob for gain, which is very often relatively low, at less extreme settings look ... And very convenient, just above the knobs, an LED bar that indicates the input level, if this order to avoid saturation sound. On the left is also located a knob tone that can influence whether you want a little less high frequency ...

Just right, two switches, one that can initiate or trigger the effect, and the second switch to switch the microphone sensitivity of an instrument to that line.

A little further right, the two main knobs, which manages a first time delay and the second which manages rehearsals. Then right at the dry volume and the volume of the effect. That's all! As a

SOUND QUALITY

analog delay based BBD, do not expect the same result as a digital delay. I also have a Memory Man with EHX Hazaras, a digital delay / loop station. The digital delay sounds of a completely different way, very clean, the sound delay is very clear, is repeated endlessly, keeping virtually the same definition and can quickly become quite aggressive.

On an analog delay, the first sound will already be less "net" and will soon drown in the depths in a well oldschool, with a particular color, very gentle, not aggressive at all. That is what characterizes the sound of this delay. In a setting that allows very rapid reaching almost reverb well fluids to a delay which somewhat resembles that of a space echo, there are many possibilities.

It goes perfectly with the sounds of analog synths, sequences of a modular synth.

OVERALL OPINION

I have a space echo RE-201 is something else again, the sound is different, but I like a lot my RE-201. Otherwise, I still have the EHX cited above, which is digital, again completely different.

What I love most: the color it brings, the accuracy in the settings.

What I like least: the fact that it is not rack mountable, but otherwise nothing.

A good vintage delay of almost 30 years old, in perfect condition and not too expensive compared to some delays as analog pedal. Cons but is limited to use studio. It would not survive long on a pedal of a guitarist ...
