1 selector pace notes repetitions: black, dotted quavers, black and dotted quavers

1 audio tapping (tap tempo via the guitar and not the foot)

True Bypass

Manufacturing level: it seems very good. Pedal metal inspires strength, I'll see in time. The look is a little vintage with its cream color and silver writes, however according to the brightness it becomes difficult to "read" these writings.


Do not try to compare the Alter Ego with Flashback, they are the same pedals. The Alter Ego comes from the Flashback, the ER and delays from DMM and replace LOFI DYN Flashback.

Do not like to take my head set and preferring to play rather than wasting my time to turn buttons, this Dlay is done for me. Press the foot switch, I scratch the tempo to black, I lift the foot and it is part remains to adjust the number of repetitions and mix. I did not test the pedal in stereo mode, or use the TonePrint software via USB and I do not intend to do, I largely material underfoot for fun.

If you use batteries for your pedals, a good stock plan, this pedal is very greedy, so it is best to dedicate him a mains supply.


Nothing to say about the True Bypass is nickel, nothing distorts the original sound without pedals. Delays quality level, it's very clean, there is nothing to say. The sound level between the true bypass pedal or active mode is exactly the same.
I can not compare the simulation Echorec or Deluxe Memory Man with true since I've never used and I do not think that is the purpose of their creation. They only look like the legendary Delays and it sounds great.


To summarize, we have a delay pedal very good workmanship there. Delays level, the choice is very ample and say they are oriented vintage fans will appreciate Gilmour instead. The packaging is correct, you have the right to have a sticker TC in your inbox. We deplore the opening, the lack of notice, however, be downloaded from the manufacturer's website but there is really no need to tame the beast, is not and intuitive.
I buy new € 110, which I think is a quality / more than interesting for those who want to acquire a metrizable Dlay easily and don the sound quality is exemplary value.

I noticed great on all points because perfect does not exist ;)
