It is a digital echo pedal that sounds like an analog with modulation effects (flutter) independent. In order to sound like a tape echo.

She has 7 knobs and 2 switches:
<ul>

Knob "Input Gain" on the side

Switch "Effect On / True Bypass"

Knob "Time": 10 ms to 1 s delay

Knob "Repeat": 1 repeated almost ad infinitum

Knob "Echo": mix the direct sound and effect

Knob "Level": overall volume output

Switch "Modulation" on / off

Knob "Depth" for the modulation

Knob "Speed" for the modulation

</ul>

Level connectivity, an Input, an Output, a DC power supply and a battery hatch.

Size equivalent to BB limp Hammond. The connection is centered: the jacks are not near the corners, but as close as possible to the power supply. So, it saves space.

UTILIZATION

The handling is fast enough. You just make sure the volume pot "Input Gain" is not zero, otherwise, no sound. A small LED on the side lets you "see" the entry level: if it turns on, the level is too high.

The manual comes down to almost nothing, but no need to have made St. Cyr to understand how it works.

The knobs are pretty sensitive, but not much. The 4 buttons for adjusting the echo are mini chickenhead.

When the modulation is activated, the 2 knobs illuminated flutter.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal is simply terrible. Transparency in the direct sound, and small grain (depending on the setting) on ​​repetition. The range of time (10ms - 1s) are sufficient.
Not really endless repetitions, despite what is advertised, so it is grated for self-oscillation.

The knob "Echo" sets the mix between direct and rehearsals: zero, the direct sound. At bottom, a bit of direct sound (50%??) And repetitions surmixées.

The "flutter" brings a side bar on the rehearsals. The wow and flutter as the magnetos on tape. But only repetition. The direct sound is not affected. It goes from light to a big chorus leslie.

The thing a bit confusing is that this also applies when the modulation is off. In much lighter, but still. With the 2 knobs at the bottom, one has a sort of little vibrato on the rehearsals, which was not that the knobs are at zero. Advantage or disadvantage, I can not say yet. But it's interesting anyway.

For cons, I do not think it is possible to have a bad sound with it, whatever the setting. Even the extremes remain usable.

OVERALL OPINION

It does not take long as I have, but I already know that this one will stay on my board.

I tried a Boss digital delay, but bof.
It replaces a EHX # 1 Echo that I am separated. It is much more flexible at the EHX settings. And it sounds better.
I also have a Carl Martin Red Repeat (also excellent), and they are even close enough.

Although quite expensive (200 €), I take it back without hesitation.
