Do you have both an Analog and a Digital Delay on your Board?

    I had a Strymon El Cap and a EHX DMM 1100 on the board but the Meris Polymoon evicted them both.

    As with OD pedals, I use different delays for different applications, but rarely at the same time.
    On my board, I hit the OCD upstream of the MXR compressor but the OD3 downstream. Trem comes next. The photo doesn't show it, but I run out to a VP Jr volume pedal that sits closer to my playing position which lets me ride the throttle without changing my basic sound. Then I loop back to the time-based effects, ending with reverb that's almost always on. The DD-7 and reverb are both able to do stereo so I do that whenever I can get away with it. BTW, my Carbon Copy is really fussy about power so I ensure that it gets exactly 9V of clean isolated juice. IMG_1728.JPG

    @x2plex How do you like the MXR Studio Compressor? Did you try others before settling on it?

    I like it a lot. I like to control the timing of onset and release because I can emulate power supply sag and that ethereal 'bloom' thing. It's also nice to have separate input and output level controls so can I can tame that 18V OCD in manageable steps.

    I am running a Red Panda Context Reverb on the +Delay setting in my effects loop - nice Verb-Delay combination that I have on all the time.

    In front just before the amp after all other pedals is an Ibanez DE-7 that I am now using for the more spacial soaring lead type stuff - it gets washed down a bit with the Verb-Delay in the loop and ends up being quite nice and wide.

    I tried a couple different analog delays and as much as I tried to like them, I think I prefer warm digital delay after all....

    Not exactly - but my digital delay (Hardwire DL-8 Delay) has an "analog" setting. Does that count?

    Let's see now. No analog delays ever unless an actual Space Echo counts. A DigiDelay on one board and a Boss DD-2 on the other. In the amp loop I have either a TC Alter Ego V2 or a Zoom MS 70CDR. I use one delay for short slapback repeats and the other for the longer echos. Sometimes both at the same time. I like a little ambience and I like to get psychedelic from time to time.

    I've got the danelectro pb&j delay dj 17, it's very analog sounding but it's digital, there is a switch that if you push it you can change delay type, one is for slap back, one for longer delay, very cool idea.

    Replica and Alter Ego v2. Replica gives me a glorious sounding digital, plus emulates an un-modulated analog well. AE gives me a spectrum of modulated analog delays. The 2 cover my needs well.

    I use a Vapor Trail for analog (occasionally with effects in the delay loop), and a DL-4.
