6 different types of delay including the excellent legacy of Dynamic Delay TC 2290.
9 memories, enough for everyday use. No MIDI or USB, it could have added a little more enjoyable for some.
True stereo and true bypass, not to mention the spillover.
Pedal that exudes strength, to see in time. Having owned a rack G Major, the sound quality was great but the finish and durability and a really dismal Nova System (same range as the Nova Delay) both solid and reliable, only time will confirm that quality for the Nova Delay.
Good point, the audio tap (tap tempo set that detected from the rhythm played on the guitar).


Simple configuration but you must read the manual to access certain functions. It should also be adjusting well to calibrate the level sound, especially for having a superb rendering with Dynamic delay.


His side it's clean, good and effective. no complaints. The settings are responsive and accurate. The colors are perfect analog and digital tape emulation and gives a little dirty side to a clean amp too.
There is clearly a quality studio type / rack version mas pedal. I find that most successful of her peers at Boss or Line 6 and for a much finer.
Dynamic Delay and then it is a real hit, I can not do without. Having used a TC 2290, we find the same feel and sound the same. This pedal is a version of this legend.
No breath no latency to attack, short accurate, efficient, pro.


I use it but recently I owned a Nova System which is found on the main part Delay characteristics present here. Nevertheless, the Nova Delay is more complete and rapid editable for those who only need the delay, which is my case.
In short a delay pro quality and equally at home live in the studio. Apparently solid construction and ergonomic. Superior from my point of view of competition (even some racks). Only the Eventide Time Factor outperforms the just but for a much higher price.
A good choice for those seeking a delay quality and easy to use.
A price a little high but in a correct relationship in light of competition.
