    SOUND QUALITY

    I like the colored delays, a voice, stereo (but in the case of the D1500, as it is mono, it takes more for stereo) on guitar, ...

    Previous reviews give a good description of the sound, I have found it hot but its easily editable.

    I believe a little all tracks, and I mix the return of the rack not too too loud in the table is quiet but it adds a "thick" Welcome to production :)

    Jaime particular effect "slapback" indeed :)

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been a year since I used these racks ...

    I still have many other multi-effect racks (TC M300, Mone, Lexicon PCM80, PCM90, LXP15 ...), other racks Dlay (Roland SDE-1000, SDE-2500, ...).

    What I like the most? Ease to get the "little extra" that can provide such "old" racks :)

    Used unbeatable value for money (between 120 and 150, no more, thank you ...).

    I tried one, I now have three, and I think that the 4th does not go too much delay ...

    Monophonic digital delay offering a maximum delay time of 1023 milliseconds. He has 16 papers edited by the user. MIDI commands are of course possible. Moreover, it seems to me that he was the first aircraft (excluding musical instruments) offering this interface.
    I do not know the sampling frequency, however the bandwidth is between 20 and 18kHz. The quantification is done about it on 16 or 15 bit, the dynamic range of 90 dB.
    It also features a switchable LFO square wave or sine. The instrument is fully monaural input to output. The connection is either 6.35mm jack or XLR. In both cases balanced connections. A third output named "Delay Out" to retrieve only the processed signal, the ba…

    It also features a switchable LFO square wave or sine. The instrument is fully monaural input to output. The connection is either 6.35mm jack or XLR. In both cases balanced connections. A third output named "Delay Out" to retrieve only the processed signal, the balance direct signal / delay while having no effect. Here it is important to know that this binding is asymmetric.
    Two potentiometers levels, one for input, one for output. 18 keys, with some of them, decked out with a small LED indicating their put into action.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple and intuitive. We chose the effect using the "Bank", we chose the parameters immediately accessible by keys "Time", "Rate", "Level", etc. .. Is adjusted with two buttons "Data Entry", and if you memorize by pressing "Store". It could not be simpler. Also thanks to the big screen Digit was a constant eye on the changing values.

    SOUND QUALITY

    If you are looking for absolute fidelity go your way, because there is not the point. This machine is not at all true, but it's making it all its interest! The signal once in the past is far from stupid, but then very far from neutral. Whatever the settings made the sound grows and thickens in a rather disconcerting. It is as if there was a small chorus simissant in its own delay line. Of course it is not the case, it is probably due to the AD / DA conversion .. It is always, when it is the goal, the color provided by this machine is very significant. Or there is total happiness is when the LFO comes into action. Echoes from the D1500 twirling in all directions and produce effects as interesting as spectacular.
    The chorus and phasing, as seen above are obtained by reversing the phase of the delay line compared to the direct signal by using suitable key called "Inv" The phase out is in constant motion while aided by same LFO .. Unfortunately as the D1500 is a machine monophonic there will no place in the area of ​​effect. However the depth of the effect is present, and should not be afraid of heights ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    Old machine offering its special .. We like it or not .. As my predecessor D1500 this reminds me of the Lexicon PCM 42, but with a sound that I find even more colorful. Despite his 27 years he still proudly wears our effects rack. With our Roland SRV 2000 it still has a prominent place. Not as a legendary Lexicon PCM 42, and yet it also has been a standard pro audio. Certainly it is less complete than last is, in fact its one great fault is to be less known than the Lexicon ..

    Delay, mono input and output XLR
    allowing modulation of the effects of flange, phaser, chorus and double
    a bypass function and hold to create a loop

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use as many brand products,
    all functions are incremented by keys, rotary knobs and two serving only input levels and mix.

    SOUND QUALITY

    A very nice sound quality, Semi detached villa with possibilities of modulation comparable to the famous home of delay Lexicon PCM 42 thanks to the choice of the waveform of the oscillator (sine, square !

    OVERALL OPINION

    A great machine, simple, with a real sound, a standart live and studio!
