Another usage of a delay that I have found is that of recording wider than usual signals (without having to record doubles of the same take). For example, some delays have 2 outputs "dry out" and "mixed out", which can be used to create 2 mono recordings/tracks of the same performance and pan them hard left and right (or whichever way that one prefers) to get a much wider sound. But for this to work, the delay time needs to be set appropriately. I usually set somewhere between 4 ms to 20 ms depending on what type of stereo width I'm going for and how it all feels!
