I invite you to read the manufacturer's website for further information or comments of my predecessors :-)


It's a great machine, complete. Editing presets is provided, you can go really far in the setting.


It includes, in addition to classical times, excellent creative tools (I think the band-delay in another). I also use a G-Force, a nova delay, a DD3 (I'm quite a fan of delays and for me :-) , the eventide is the most updated version of what is done in terms of delay.
Very useful effects studio prod.


I use it for about 1 month.
I still have quite a flat, which is why I wanted to share my opinion (I guess I'm not the only one but I invite users to correct me if I tell crap :-) .
Me, I play in a band where we play live with a click. I usually set my delays depending on the tempo of the song. Yes, you can program presets users. The big problem is that there's only bank and no bank UP DOWN! As in V2 y '50 banks, for example if you say: ok, gonna give me my presets depending on the playlist (already shitty thing, if you change the playlist, but is), comes the second song , you say, ok I spend on the bank and 2 ... oops, I pressed one time too, the bank Chuis 3. How to return to bank 2? Simple, you press the button 50 x bank up, go through all the banks to return to square one :-) Easy live! But pkoi devil did not he planned a bank down ????? Results, for users who like to program the tempo of the delay, you are obliged to use external midi pedal to select the various delays. And hop into something :-( +
I can already hear some say yes but there's a tap tempo. It Vree. I do not care of tap tempo, for 2 reasons: first, I do not like tap tap tap ... is in full concert, it says me and ESPECIALLY not, this machine being so "creative", that is so happy she could spend more time changing mode delay (digital to tape, to tape delay etc.) in one song.
All this to say: you use a midi control pedal? This machine is fantastic !!!!! The ultimate in delay. You do not use midi control pedal, but you like the tap delay? This machine is fantastic! :-) Are you like me to use a click, songs by various delays, etc ... you need a MIDI pedal in addition ...

Am I the only one to experience this flat?

Salutati music!
