Boss DD-8

This is a demo of the Boss DD-8 .The Boss DD-8 is the most recent compact Boss delay and the direct successor of the DD-7. It provides a looper and 11 delay modes.

Boss DD-7 vs. DD-8

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-7 with the Boss DD-8.
They look like twins, but what about the sound?
Find out more about the sonic similarities and differences in varying modes, different delay times and regarding modulation and reverse.

Source Audio Nemesis vs. Line6 DL4

This is a comparison of the Source Audio Nemesis with the Line6 DL4.
The Line6 DL4 has been launched decades ago, but still doesn’t have to be shy about a comparison with the Source Audio Nemesis.

In this demo I compare different modes of these two workhorses.

Empress Echosystem vs. Hughes & Kettner Replex

This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Hughes & Kettner Replex.
In this demo I compare different settings of drive and vintage factor of the Hughes & Kettner Replex with varying tape modes of the Empress Echosystem.

Strymon Volante vs. Akai Headrush

This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Akai Headrush.
By activating different tone heads, I created varying rhythms.
A sonic coulouring of each of these rhythms is added by different settings.

Neunaber Expanse vs. Source Audio Nemesis

This is a comparison of the Neunaber Expanse with the Source Audio Nemesis.
The Neuaber Expanse is quite more than a reverb. Thus, I compare different settings of both pedals like tape and digital. But also modes like scatter (Expanse) versus rhythmic (Nemesis) and echelon stock (Expanse) versus digital mode (Nemesis). Last but not least, you will get a demo of how both pedals sound in the mix.

Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man with the DOD Rubberneck.
Find out mor about the sonic possibilities like brighter and darker repeats, modulation and the sound of these two analog delays in the mix.

Korg SDD-3000 Pedal

Korg SDD 3000 PedalA long time ago, there was the Korg SDD-3000 rack delay with its legendary sound.
Some years ago, the also less pedalboard-friendly version of this classic has been put on the market. Continue reading “Korg SDD-3000 Pedal”

Source Audio Nemesis vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay

This is a comparison of the Source Audio Nemesis with the Erica Synths Zen Delay.
For these two are digital stereo delays, please use your headphones.

Both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.

0:08 digital mode (Zen Delay)

Erica Synths Zen Delay vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the DOD Rubberneck with the Erica Synths Zen Delay
For both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.
The Zen Delay does not provide an analog mode. Via the filter settings, I formed an analog-like sound in the digital delay mode. And the Rubberneck is, what it is: a great dark and gritty analog delay.

Fulltone Tube Tape Echo vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay

This is a comparison of the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo with the Erica Synths Zen Delay
For both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.
I would like to present some sonic options by using different modes and filters of the Erica Synths Zen Delay and varying speeds and a higher record level for tape saturation of the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo.

AnalogMan ARDX20 vs. Maxon AD-900 – Analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the AnalogMan ARDX20 with the Maxon AD-900.
These both analog delays create a rather dark sound. They are about the same size, but for the AnalogMan ARDX20 comes along with the Amazeo, it will need a bit more space on the pedalboard. Therefore, you will additionally get tap tempo and modulation.
Sonically both delay pedals are based on the Ibanez AD-9.
For the Maxon AD-9 does not provide modulation, I forego showing this feature of the AnalogMan ARDX20. Find out more about the sound of different delay times and how both pedals may sound in the mix.

0:07 about 600ms delay time (max. delay time of the AD-900)

AnalogMan ARDX20 vs. DOD Rubberneck – Analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the AnalogMan ARDX20 with the DOD Rubberneck.
These both analog delays create a rather dark sound. Each of them provides modulation and – if you also use the Amazeo for the ARDX20- also tap tempo.
Find out more about the sound of different delay times and how both pedals may sound in the mix.

Tape Emulation, analog and digital delay – how do they sound with an overdrive pedal (Paul Cochrane Timmy)?

This is a comparison of three different types of delays all accompanied by the Timmy.
For this demo I used a classic analog delay (Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man), a tape echo emulation (Strymon Volante) and a digital delay (Empress Echosystem).
The Paul Cochrane Timmy is probably the best choice, if you are looking for a transparent overdrive. so, go ahead and find out, how it affects every single type of delay depending on the respective kind of playing (like dynamic playing, modulation, in the mix).
If you are looking for a sonic sneak peak, check out 1:22.
