    Electro-Harmonix Memory ToyPublished on 11/12/13 at 03:06

    This is a delay of the series Nano EHX

    It takes the place of a pedal on a pedalboard unlike Memory Man who eats half.

    It is said analog. 1 input, 1 output, 1 9v power jack.

    UTILIZATION

    - One knob "delay" for the length 550ms which is more than enough.

    - 1 for the feedback the number of repetitions that can go to the self-oscillation.

    - 1 blend knob, which is a kind of mix. When this is purely live mix, but in an effects loop can act as light boost, nice except that it adds treble not necessarily musical.

    - 1 switch modulation unit ... which repeats. Unusable, it sounds just wrong.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Although at first I struggled with this effect I saw my opinion.

    The delay is good, it does not sound Memory Man and it is perhaps better that gives him some own character.

    It sounds really good in slapback and reverb false, very soft, very vintage. For solos too, with my G & L vintage sounds. In contrast to the rhythmic separately in clean, crunch or it's too messy.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since the beginning of this year 2013, I had some troubles with power effect would not activate, I changed my diet even milliamps, the effect is active. Both power supplies are working well except that the effect is active with a. It works, I no longer try to understand.

    I typed some vintage effects (Chill Jam, Fulltone Wah, Maxon PT-999 etc. ..) but it sounds old vintage, old no.
    And therein lies the problem of the effect. When I switched I feel that my hair is turning white, my graying beard and my youth is drawn.

    Sure it amuses me in slapback and doing some solos but this is the slap.
    I can not recommend this product a little to people looking for a vintage sound not too expensive and not too much space, for others it will think of something else.

    Note that I am looking for a one year delay can replace it convinced me that little touch of the hair hedgehog.

    SOUND QUALITY

    unlike other reviews I did not feel the volume up by this delay against "colored" fairly sound, there is an equalization of difficult "vintage" genre to describe but is very present, it brings warmth to the sound. I possesses another analog that I made DIY (the tonepad rebote) is the sound is more neutral bcp

    repeated notes are accompanied by a breath - this is normal is analog even three times as much time have this feature here ...

    the sound is good, the settings allow you to quickly find what you want, watch the delay is not very loooong and dirty too if pushed.

    chorus mod is nice to radically change his but I do not use it personally

    I use it with a Fender Telecaster and a microphone wide in the clear on a fender deville or twin reveb

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few weeks, I must say that I almost sell after a few hours of use because he went too fast self oscillation: past 12pm on the feedback knob was uncontrollable and I was getting yelled at by other musicians who were "draft" ... after researching on the net I opened the beast pawed the trimpot No. 5 (note gain per side) and I extended the feedback by reducing autoscillation. the shot is impeccable now.

    benefits (bought used for 50 euros and small size of the pedalboard) I do not regret my purchase. on the other hand for those who use very often delay I recommend another or as a digital sound is still processed. for the music I play it goes!

    Delay circuit with analog technology

    UTILIZATION

    Simple configuration can be set (in the ear) the number of repetitions, speed of onset, and the signal ratio dry / wet signal. Hard to talk about "dry" in truth because the "buffer" the pedal to affect the sound: turn the road in 100% dry and your sound mode changes, there is a small boost and a change in the EQ.

    A small inverter adds a chorus effect (perhaps inspired by the classic Memory Man and surely made to mimic the "flutter" of tape delays - that is to say, the slight variations in the pitch of the note in rehearsals, due to the heterogeneous movement of the tape).

    A small inverter adds a chorus effect (perhaps inspired by the classic Memory Man and surely made to mimic the "flutter" of tape delays - that is to say, the slight variations in the pitch of the note in rehearsals, due to the heterogeneous movement of the tape).

    The set is very instinctive, which is more to my liking ... As against the buttons being small, slight movement is enough to not move the wrong knob (this is a physical principle :)) so fine adjustments are precise and ultra hard to get (no tap tempo here ...), they be patient or fuck in a bit.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is NOT clear and repetitions are not faithful reproductions of the original guitar signal. This is not a judgment of taste, but all know before you buy. This pedal is used, in a small and a modest price format, to have a warm delay, which defaults to the charm.

    NOTE: the arrival of the repetition is accompanied by breath. That means if you put the time of the longest possible delay: when repeating sounds, adds a small breath then goes slowly, "fade out".

    Personally, I love this little delay unpretentious, a bit "lo-fi" on the edges, but effective and easy to use.

    Its strong point in my opinion is the "slapback", that is to say, a repetition of a short time, typical rock'n'roll, 1950-60.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it on stage, a lot! For three years I think. I tried the Memory Boy and I preferred the little brother (the two have nothing to do anyway ...).

    I have a venerable Roland RE-201 (Space Echo) magnetic tape (which now needs repair). A real tape echo unit, this is great but in my opinion it is for the studio, unless you ais a tour bus or a mad desire to wrestle you 10kg unit in addition to your amp and your guitars.

    So now, the Memory Toy is incomparable to the previous example, but for now, for me, he did his job for small scenes and aged very well (it's solid, no frills, all the EHX spit).

    small analog delay

    UTILIZATION

    attention to providing sufficient power: dedicated power supply required

    SOUND QUALITY

    a delay super dark, filthy good analog
    I love that sound wonderful

    At first I really wondered how to make it sound, but after a few days I could not do without

    Well lets inflate its (high speed, 1 repetition) as clean as saturated

    Great effects oscillations when you push the knobs fully
    there's enough good laugh (and even what kind of wacky sounds are 'natural', it does not hack digital)

    when the effect 'between chorus and flanger', it gives something quite melodic, very present (this is not discrete but can be useful)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Superb delay
    Unfortunately, mine dropped me!
    more sound at all, over
    I browsed a bit to the left and right of the web root, and I saw that such concerns were not so isolated that!

    I tried to fiddle around a bit inside: no chance!

    Besides opening the pedal, there are so many compsant inside that really questions the meaning of the concept of 'Analog'!

    shame, shame
    Its big brothers (declination memory boy / man) may be stronger!

    - I can not have a delay "pronounced. The sound is for me too PForm and not long enough. If we extend the blend to highlight, you lose the original sound which has very int rt

    UTILIZATION

    The config is not so simple. To get what you want requires a little fiddling. And it takes once mmoriser positions to find them.
    on the other hand, just put all afternoon to have a good sound right away.

    I would say that is good but it takes getting used to.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Ah ... the analog we like it or not. I like this ct natural with characters. Some will find it less transparent.

    The small button "mod" supposed to add a chorus, gives the feeling plutt extend things. I find a trs cool, because you can do with some kind of ground. A little more sympathetic.

    But suddenly, to my style I'll turn to the numrique: more transparency and flexibility (but more expensive) type Boss DD-7

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's a nice tool, but I would recommend anyone who connatdj the delays and wants something a little more than characters, and wants to focus on a short delay for accentguer his game
    A beginners on the delays might be a little dstabilis (sound, self-oscillation, blend ...)
    Someone searching for accentus delays or longer, I also think that we must look elsewhere.

    I sent mine: I would have kept if I had enough budget complment another delay (numrique) for two pedals, one for short delays (Memory Toy ) and for a long dlais.

    Analog Delay 0 -> 600 ms
    3 knobs: Mix / time delay / number of repetitions + switch modulation

    UTILIZATION

    No need for manual, these are the basic settings of a delay.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Pedal used with a Les Paul Faded on a Kustom bass amp.

    So first I find the sound of hell (I also have a TC-Electronic Flashback is a sacred reference) but not against the masses in large settings it has a short delay to thicken the sound , a long delay for solo hard rock using a saturated, clear sound and the modulation switch is nice.

    Then the boring thing is that if it exceeds half of the blend knob is not the signal delay (it seems that in an effects loop that has its uses), if more than half the knob from the pedal feedback in self oscillation.
    On top of that the overall sound level is increased when the pedal engages.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 months I have had a Danelectro 600ms (excellent value), a Boss DSD3 (equivalent to a DD3) and a TC Electronics Flashback (a sacred pedal).

    I thought Toy resell the Memory, but I keep it, even with all its faults (auto swing easy, gain volume, blend used as the first half of the race) has a grain, a warmth that I have hard to find on other delay.
    Usually the debate / D makes me smile, especially when you compare the stuff cheap digital with analog expensive.
    But this one I admit that I tilt to the grain and wild side that starts oscillation in the car for a bit of nothing ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    18/08/11:

    I've had barely a month. The delays I was using previously were exclusively those of my home processor M350 TC Electronics connected as an insert in my mixer.

    I wanted a usable without delay to initiate any station computer and the table. Just the guitar, the amp and basta, and I do not lose anything in the process.

    The format of the pedal is a plus, of course. His big stack consumption of a brake solved by plugging in my Harley Benton Powerplant.

    Bought second-hand (even if it is unused because the new owner prédédent), it presents a very good value for money. Nine is a bit pricey, but on occasion I recommend it and buy it back if necessary (loss, theft, breakage or failure).

    Analog delay time long enough for solos higain, fixed modulation Snap.

    Importantly, the mix goes 100pcent is great for parallel effect loops (and tables mix).

    True bypass, no battery or power supply plugged into the sound is useful in case of boredom on stage.

    No switching noise, well I did not long ago.

    Very easy to use.
    The mod automatically lengthens the delay time.

    Note that this delay when you cut all the fires and does nothing when it engages (my Ibanez DL5 takes into account what is played just before the snap, nice. And my boss re20/line6 Echopark / Bébert EM600 lets finish rehearsals when the trigger).

    SOUND QUALITY

    First, and this is a big advantage over all delay pedals I have, the overall volume is much higher when the toy memory is in use.
    As I place my pedals after overdrive / distortion / compressor I automatically a volume louder solo is great.
    I have not yet tested upstream of a channel is saturated, but certainly not terrible from my past experiences.
    Loop (remote) of a peavey bandit is great, boost the volume of the delay gives me almost two additional channels.

    The sound: beautiful, warm and soft but not full of noise (except mod mode), very nice, the best of my delays (even the RE20 sounds cold side). My Analog Delay Artec is far behind the EH, I was surprised at the difference in sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two weeks, I'm happy!
    Of course I want his big brother, the boy deluxe memory (tap tempo! Effects loop! Adjustable mod! Expression pedal!) Which is not expensive for what it offers.

    The nano is a superb toy memory delay, lively, and very cheap indeed (I see no reason why we would almost three times more for a carbon copy).

    Warning: it is rather ticklish question PSU with a transformer Ibanez AC109 you're ready. With my other alims Well kindled did not alter the sound. So do not panic if it happens to you!
