ejendres's review"Awesome Pedal"

TC Electronic RPT-1 Nova Repeater
This is a digital delay that features high and low inputs (so it can work in line or instrument level effect loops), stereo outs, Delay, Feedback, Tone, and level knobs, Spillover, and Kill dry buttons.

The delay has 6 different modes, studio, analog, tape, dynamic, reverse, and pingpong.

It also features a modulation knob, where you can add chorus or vibrato to the delays.

This delay has a dedicated tap tempo button. This was the feature that really sold me on this pedal. Because I could easily set the tempo on the fly.

The tap tempo also has different divisions you can select (quarter, dotted eighth, and eighth note triplets) as well as a dual delay feature (quarter and eighth, quarter and dotted eighth, quarter and eighth note triplet). Which is an awesome feature.

The bypass is really great too, its transparent.


The pedal is really easy to use, everything is very clearly labeled and easy to use. I never had a need to open the manual.


This delay pedal is awesome. Every delay mode sounds awesome and just like you'd expect it to. Like I said before the bypass is super transparent, and the high/low inputs made it so it'll sound good in whatever type of loop your amp has.

The weakest part of the pedal is the modulation, mostly because its so subtle its barely noticeable. But I hate modulation on my delays so this didn't matter to me.


This is honestly the best stand alone delay pedal I've owned. The only other unit that sounded as good was the delays in the TC G Major II. I love this pedal and would recommend it to any one who is looking for a well built, durable, great sounding delay. With a price point around 150 bucks you cannot go wrong.

TC Electronic RPT-1 Nova Repeater
All cara have already been mentioned. Going a bit further, I think this format is really cool pedal. Much less intrusive than the twin format with boss was still enough room for naviquer aisémment between the (many) settings and enough space between the 2 footswiths not tangle brushes.

The pedal is also well endowed with connectors with a low output to make it go directly into the amp and high output to block it in the effects loop. For my part, connected in high in the loop, I did not notice any significant loss of output or modification of specific tone; the abscence of truebypass therefore bother me at all.


The config is very simple and allows you to go far enough in use. The big advantage of the pedal (and why I bought it!) Is being able to choose different types of repeats (black, dotted eighth, dotted eighth black +, etc ...).

So it's a very nice toy to experiment or to give an electro tinge with some adjustments.

To enrich the content of the previous posts already very complete, I'm going to quibble.
His only "fault" is that the face of fairly sophisticated use can be done with the rhythmic subdivisions, it lacks a truly accurate tempo settings.

The tap tempo is very practical with its dedicated swith is nickel for standard use of the delay a little out of his dry guitar, or for reasons rytmiques short and / or fast.
on the other hand, some precision is lacking for work on complex echoes. Eg for a slow adjustment black + eighth note triplet with effect volume thoroughly and lots of repetition, pedal deserved a manual tempo setting with display. Rehearsals would then be perfectly supported in time with the rhythm session, which is hard to achieve with the tap.

In fact, it is not a default because it is really in a corner of the pedal with this type of use. Let's just say that AC would have been the icing on the cake :) . Note that the Novea Delay model from TC offers this option, but the toy is not at the same rate ...

In short, it's 100% utilization level, but I wanted 110%!


The toy is all digital. To me, it does not bother me at all. I find the sound excellent bills and anyway I like sharp, crisp repetitions. I think the "analog" setting is great taf to give a slightly warmer side.

The slap back delay to ultra long, solo hard rock rhythmic kitsh the block party, U2 Pink Floyd, anything goes, and with gusto. The tone knob is dramatically on the effect. The chorus / tremolo are dispensable but can add or lighter coloration rather nice.

You can do anything with the nova repeater is what I like. Its only limitation is that you can not really do start to spin the big blow to répétitons knobs, like a MXR Carbon Copy or DD6. To see if this is important in your use.


It's been two years since he has not left my set. His versatility, quality and numerous parameters have really convinced me and I'm not about to part.
I hesitate to chopper me a carbon copy in addition to just hack the appearance, but it is the whim of rich!

Head on over to this great pedal.

TC Electronic RPT-1 Nova Repeater
I do not return to the characteristics already detailed above.


This pedal is extremely easy to use.
2 footswitch, one to trigger the effect and the second to determine the time between each repetition (TAP / Tempo)
I use a lot of it allows me to fine tune the response times compared to the tempo of the song.
Although I particularly like the way "studio" and "analog", all modes have their interest and may serve to creativity.
The "Spillover", which allows to prolong the delay once the effect shuts down, adds to the impression "studio quality" of this pedal.

I add that this pedal and very intuitive and easy to adjust even on stage.


The sound quality is optimum for the delay.
The MOD function is a little disappointing for my taste because the effect VIB and CHORUS are less convincing and remind us that this is a delay pedal and not a multi-purpose.


I use for about a year. She has never failed and will not leave my pedalboard so soon.
- The quality of delay
- Ease of use
- Stereo Out

- Chorus / Vibrato not convincing
- DRY KILL button too close to the footswitch on / off

If I would do it over again this election. A maximum rendering simplicity and affordable price.
