    Excellent quality / price ratio

    HardWire Pedals DL-8 Delay LooperPublished on 08/16/13 at 08:04

    I start with the build quality, which is exemplary. it is beautiful, solid, clean, it's super pro. A little too much for myself.
    Ago with the stomplock for those who like their precious settings are kept intact exactly a square scratch to paste it on a pedalboard and a fluorescent sticker for those who play in the dark.
    The pedal is stereo, true bypass (Details button off) or buffered bypass (Details button on it, which leaves the delay is pronlonger after disabling the delay, it's nice that), it is powered by the boss barrel classic, it is small in size.

    UTILIZATION

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration is very simple, very clear.
    The knobs notched well I'm not quite sure what I think I saw that traffics many knobs time / repeat to create glitches when I play.
    The manual, a marvel, very clear, very understandable.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is a delay, the characteristics are explained below, so I'll just make a few remarks.
    - The knob "level" is a level control effect and not a "blend" as the memory man hazarai: thoroughly, it is the volume of the processed signal is thoroughly and dry signal remains present .
    - Except for the reverse function, which completely cut the dry signal to keep only the effect.
    - The maximum delay is 8 seconds, which allows the knob "repeat" almost fully to the true Frippertronics.
    - The controls are a bit basic for example you can not adjust the level of the modulated chorus effect, not adjust the filter effect of the tape echo, etc..
    - The looper is more than basic: he knows just the place to repeat the loop you put into it, for 20 seconds, and once inside you can not handle the loop.
    Does that sound good? it sounds very good. Great. A little too well, it's a little too "predictable" for me.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since yesterday, but as I had just about everything done as kind of delay on the market except for a space echo and DL4, I think I can give my opinion ;)
    What is really above the rest is its size, build quality, the sound that comes out super clean and ease of use.
    So that I already hesitate to sell is that it is too good, too professional, too slick. And damn looper that can not do anything that stupid again he was told ...
    My favorite darling loved this delay is the Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai, the exact opposite of this beautiful well-behaved and well polished effect what the DL-8. The hardwire it is beautiful, it smells the rose, he politely asked what he and nearly as fancy as my lawnmower. The SMMWH is fada, it is blue, you turn a knob he went into a spin, it clicked like crazy at the slightest movement of the time delay, the looper is an instrument unto itself and is scented with patchouli 1974. A bit like comparing the trumpet fanfare Polytechnic and Miles Davis.

    Looking for a perfect small and accurate delay? DARK!
    Looking for a box delirium? Buy something else.

    So this is the basis of a delay loop with a function of 20 seconds.
    Modern design, fun, solid.
    The delay is divided into several "sub-effects" with a knob slctionnables Crant:
    0.5 seconds (in Ralite variable 0.15 0.5 secs with the knob "Time")
    1 seconds (0.5 sec 1)
    2 seconds (1 2 secs)
    8 seconds (2 8 secs)
    Then DIFFERENT effects on the principle of delay:
    "Reverse"; mode that will play each rptition the delay to the (hard master ...)
    "Modulated" a delay which will rptitions shades of chorus,
    "Analog" I have not understood the original but it's basically all delays of 0.5 8 seconds ...
    "Slapback" a delay which rptitions trs quick spaces are between 0.08 and 0.15 sec…

    "Analog" I have not understood the original but it's basically all delays of 0.5 8 seconds ...
    "Slapback" a delay which rptitions trs quick spaces are between 0.08 and 0.15 secs, used in rockabilly,
    "Lo-Fi", which is your rptitions depleted harmonics (given its relatively mild one)
    "Tape" feature that allows you to type footswitch with the tempo of rptitions,
    "Loop", the famous loop function
    Two outputs for the Stereo.
    Provided without an adapter (it's a surprise ...) but with collable scratch the back of the pedals, a sticker for the game of phosphorescent scne a "stompslock", a big plastic contraption semi- that soft with holes in it to fit into the buttons and keep his rglages a manual (English).

    UTILIZATION

    The pedals in itself is simple, for it delays RULES rate effect in the sound, so if you play enough hand knob psych practical enough to avoid the mess sound: D
    A knob "Repeats" for the number of rgler rptitions (from 2 to infinity is a hypothse ... Finally, I got bored quickly)
    A knob "Time" for the time between each rgler rptitions
    The knob for slcteur DIFFERENT effects.
    So good, it's very simple and clear, APRS is a tool and measure matriser hard enough ... take a shot.
    Dtail that "kills": The knobs are notched by small carts trs, trs that enjoyable to shoot buttons, a not move, we take its brands

    SOUND QUALITY

    Ach so, sounds ...
    H Well, the pedals sound lche trs pros, no mess at all, it prcis, crisp and clear. APRS, as I said before, you know that the dose effect, as most of the effects of modulation of any fawn.
    The attack is well respected, the pedals gives a lot of breadth, depth and dimension to the game
    The reverse function is parcontre trs hard use, say that in addition to the effect of grate rptitions you need to plan the game upside down ... Go see for advice Hendrix (Castles made of sand);)
    The effects are INTERESTED, the function is modulated is quite funny psych Analog function is the one I use most since trs Tagus, it leaves a lot of freedom and the rpetitions " time ". Slapback is clean but I use it just for what I play, but the function remains in the line of pedals is trs pro ... Lo-fi is the enjoyable ear because rptitions, low harmonics, can be less "lost" in things, because fewer Submitted.
    Tape, the delay remains the same.
    Loop, attention, 20sec chrono! A bit tight for a grid of relatively slow blues, even when the function is nice for the compounds found at the time and place phrass above. In addition, if the record length is limited can renregistrer over any number of addition, simply press again on the switch above the first record, and off you go ... Note : to record, keep your foot pressed the switch, I had not impede me particulirement.
    Clearly, a nice pedals trs in sound is clear trs, trs trs musical pro, the sound is warm and full of harmonics, a really good pedals.
    Little regret for the reverse, but the pedals did its job, it's just the effect is not very easy to work ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I reu yesterday, order by thomann for 135 (200 on the market ...).
    It's a good trs pedals with it while taking the principle effects of delay are Intgr but the number does not harm the quality unlike a lot of pedals on the market sold one has a real delay, Designed well, the sounds are really good, I take a lot of fun to play and improve my game, the sound of my guitar takes on a cosmic love 8D
    The small addition to the pedals, the loop is exactly what I needed, I wanted a delay to enhance my sound as well as a loop to work, well, the loop takes only 20 secs but in the all had enough. I like the reverse unless prvu, but I imagined something else, otherwise the quality of the effect in itself is good ...
    The quality price ratio, for some 150 euros (rounded) is expensive, but I think that given the sounds spit the thing that's really not a scam.
    Accessories are provided, the pedals is really intrssante, but it is so prcise I still have a little trouble get my bearings, but when I want a particular sound I think I will be happy with the range it offers
    With exprience, so I do it again this election, I think it has a great delay, he does everything and does it well (well, some delays dpassent minute time between rptitions but I have not yet understood the advantage). I do not change, and I feel that I will take a long time before they have explored all the possibilities of bte: p
    I would return in some time to edit this view, but I have not found a default for now, neither in sound nor functions nor in the use ... I see nothing to taint the note

    There is a delay of at Digitech looking very strong,
    Four-delay modes classic
    A reverse-delay
    A delay-typed slap slapback
    Lo-fi a delay
    An analog-delay
    A delay-modulate
    Looper-One
    A delay-tap tempo
    Access to the battery is simple, robust appearance and a small selector switch very useful as it serves to choose if you want the effect continues or not after the arrest of the delay (and thus choose between progressive or stop any more of répetiton after pressing the switch)
    Don has this level is very full with enough work and have fun experimenting with new sounds.

    Don has this level is very full with enough work and have fun experimenting with new sounds.

    UTILIZATION

    The general use is simple, a looper clarity very good, a little short perhaps, but well, no audible drop in volume, it is also easily adjustable. The settings can not be simpler knobs with serrated very enjoyable. The number of possibilities is impressive is the view of the ease with which it is accessed. The manual is useful for the battery compartment (remove the footswitch is not clear without explanation, but once that is understood it is very simple and very well up yours).
    Summarized in a simple and complete.

    SOUND QUALITY

    First, the delay "normal" pedal, personally I only use the short delay (0.5) and tap time because the others are too long for my taste. They are very clean and clear without being intrusive, there may be a delay has two repeats this very delay as a very cozy with a bit of a reverb effect or echo of the Cathedral really nice clean. Solos on the saturated delay is always clean, we peutavoir of delays for the very good or shred solos floydienne, or even for iron maiden has the rhythm.
    The delay sounds really slapback slap in the style of Chet Atkins is really fun even though it has not necessarily useful, this delay is very short and very dirty, it is a little echo at the edges.
    The lo fi analog delay are very good also sounds less clear than the conventional delay and more than the slap on solos like hovering in clear or clean.
    The reverse delay is very experimental, I find it really out of control especially in the number of repetitions you get the impression that it is a bit random.
    Modulate the delay is when it is not very convincing as not really useful, it's just a delay with a chorus, I still have not figured out how to use it.
    The looper is really great to make small blues improvisation, it still retains the lossless sound, very easy to use, it's a shame he's a bit short.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This delay looper exudes quality in its entirety, even if the looper is sometimes a little short, look very solid, the knobs of good qualities it offers a wide range of different delays that are really doing their job.
    Whether you are looking for a simple delay with a delay looper or comprehensive enough that it is really suited to everything, plus the sound very beautiful.
    Defects are really rare, the looper a little short, the fact that there is no power supply.
    This delay has everything one can expect to see even more.
    If I had to redo this choice may hesitate a bit with the Akai HeadRush a looper that offers a little bit longer, but is more expensive and bulky, plus it does not offer the same simplicity DL8 that.

    To summarize a delay of more complete in a standard format pedal very practical, very easy to use with good sound qualities.

    HardWire Pedals DL-8 Delay LooperPublished on 11/01/09 at 19:25
    The Digitech DL-8 Delay/Looper is a newer pedal designed for guitar that is compact and much smaller than most loopers that I have seen.  It is a digital based pedal and has standard 1/4 inch connections for stereo inputs and outputs.  It can be powered by either a nine volt power supply or battery and isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.

    UTILIZATION

    Using the Digitech DL-8 Delay/Looper isn't hard at all as you only have a few parameters to play around with.  You've got knobs for level, repeats, time, and a mode knob where you can choose between different types of delays including up to 8 seconds of delay, reverse, analog, loop, tape, modulated, and slap.  This makes it a ver…

    Using the Digitech DL-8 Delay/Looper isn't hard at all as you only have a few parameters to play around with.  You've got knobs for level, repeats, time, and a mode knob where you can choose between different types of delays including up to 8 seconds of delay, reverse, analog, loop, tape, modulated, and slap.  This makes it a versatile pedal as it allows for control over a lot of different types of delays.  I've never needed to look at a manual so I can't say if it would be helpful or not, but unless you are a beginner with delay pedals I wouldn't think that you would need one.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality of the Digitech DL-8 Delay/Looper is about average in my opinion.  While it does have usable delays and will record your loops well and clearly, it sounds a bit too digitally processed for my taste.  I have only used the pedal a few times but I have used it with a Fender Strat and a Fender amp, so I was getting a clean read on it from my configuration.  I don't think that the sound quality is up to par for professionals, but I would definitely recommend this pedal for someone who is starting out and interested in messing around with delay and loops.  The pedal does have true bypass so when you don't have it engaged you won't get any noise and it won't kill your tone at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    While I wouldn't use the Digitech DL-8 Delay/Looper for recording or for live shows as the delay portion of the pedal isn't realistic sounding enough for my taste and the length of delay isn't long enough to be able to do anything too crazy with looping, it is a well built pedal that is definitely useful for getting your feet wet with delay and looping and for simply practicing.  However, if you are really interested in a good delay or looper I would recommend looking at either the Line 6 DL4 for delays or the Line 6 JM4 for looping, both of which will give you more bang for your buck than this in my opinion...
