    Is there a multi tap delay on the Flashback mini? Can you create one in the editor? I own the FB and couldn't find a preset.

    What delay pedal has multi tap mode?

    There is a delay on the Mustang III called multi tap and I would like to find that sound in a pedal to use with other amps.

    Thanks for any input

    Any multi-tap delay pedals that you use? Any at all? Crickets.

    Eventide H9, but that’s probably overkill. Strymon Timeline?

    I got a Tc Electronic Flashback Triple Delay a couple months ago and love it. 3 seperate delay engines, toneprint, and tap tempo.

    The Boss RE-20 simulates the three heads on a Roland Space Echo. That's mostly what "multi-tap' is: a simulation of multiple recording/playback heads from an old-school tape echo. On the newer all-chip delays, I'm sure you can make precise adjustments top the delay times of each head.

    If you want the sound of a Space Echo, you can save yourself $150 over the price of an RE20 and get a NuX Tape Core Deluxe for $99.

    It also has a computer editor, and you can save and load a favorite preset.

    Alter Ego x4 user. The tap delay function on this pedal is on the mini toggle which engages a Tapped PingPong. I am not near my rig right now but there is a PingPong template in the editor. I would start there..

    Most of the multi effects pedals have a multi tap preset. The Zoom MS-50G comes to mind. The other 100 effects it has would just be icing on the cake.

    The EHX Canyon has a multi tap setting as well. Lots of delay options for not a lot of $$$ or pedalboard space.

    I found this on a review of the Alter Ego, which I have but maybe not exactly the same:
    Cons - No multi-head echo emulations.
    I don't recall seeing any in the Toneprint editor.

    I have two of them. It's overkill for just delays, but the reverbs are incredible, and the harmonizer is something I've yet to hear any other manufacturer match.

    The Strymon El Capistan has a multi-tap setting.
    Maybe less overkill than a Timeline or H9.

    I use multitaps all the time.

    I don’t want to knock pedals I have used, so, I will only say that the cost friendly Zoom MS70 CDR will do all the subdivisions I require.
    Also, it allows the tweaking of where each tap sits in the mix. Krazy at that price. Not to mention the other stuff it does.
    It sold me a Zoom G3n that does the multi taps almost as good (good enough) and does so many other things so easily.
    So easy for me to use contrary to what some say.
    I did have to apply logical reasoning to understand the G3n.
    Spoiler-The pedal mode is a reflection of the patch mode... I tweak the pedals in a patch from the pedal mode and play in the patch mode.
    Confusing? Not once I got in the mind of it.

    Cool thanks sounds like the MS70 is worth looking at!
    The Mustang 3 Delay I'm addicted to seems so basic I can't believe I'm having such a hard time finding it.
    duh..duh.......duh..duh.......duh..duh........duh..duh........duh..duh.......duh..duh........duh..duh...... lol!!

    I like the look of a Boss DD-500. Loads of options there to make loads of useful presets.

    OP UPDATE:

    I was married to the multi tap delay on my Mustang 3 hence this thread. With a little practice I was able to get similar sounds without a pedal at all, just by playing technique. I've since learned to re-create the many different delays I use just by playing technique also. Very liberating and useful when I'm away from the board. I was also able to recreate the multi-tap using two pedals I already own.
    I am now free to plug in to ANY amp and not feel like I'm missing something from the MIII. Still in the market for a cool multi-tap and am checking out the suggestions here. Thanks everyone

    The Akai Headrush has a multitap function plus separate outs for each 'head' so you can run those to different amps for some wild 3D action. There were two versions, which show up on Reverb now and then. Here are some now:
    https://reverb.com/p/akai-headrush-e1
    https://reverb.com/p/akai-e2-headrush-delay-slash-looper

    I'm also enjoying the multitap option on the Keeley Dark Side, which emulates a syncopated multitap. It essentially allows you to choose whether each head is on or off.

    G3n in bound but... the akai headrush can get Tripp’s as all get out. Way cool pedal ! Digging the NUX demo up above.
