    Just curious... What type of delay is everyone using for their worship tone? Not what pedal are you using (I assume most are using some multi style dealt) but what delay type? Digital, Analog. Tape, stacked delays?

    I've been using analog on my Nemesis Delay but thinking of trying digital to see if it comes through a little more in a band mix.

    What you use and works best is dependant largely on the room or auditorium and system it is being used in. In other word, what you use at home in a small room is often entirely different in a large room with much longer reverberation quantity and delay.

    For instance, a nice smooth analog delay sounds great in a small room while in a room with a lot of reverberation/echo it can sound horribly muddy and undefined getting lost in a mix.

    In ear systems can increase that challenge since the instrumentalist usually hears a dry mix without the room influence the audience hears. We recently had a bass player using an effect that sounded clear to him but sounded like he was playing under a mud puddle in the auditorium. When he found one that was clear and nice in the room it was so harsh in his ears he couldn't hardly stand to hear it.

    In my experience that is why some smooth humbuckers can get lost in a mix of a echoey room while single coils can clearly cut thru. Vise versa, in an articulate room a crisp single coil can be obnoxious while a creamy humbucker sound sweet and clear.

    My point after my rambling is. Use what works for your room.

    I use a memory man 90% of the time except for parts that require the delay to be as crisp and present almost as the original note. eg never gonna stop singing from Jesus Culture, then I use digital.

    Re the room comment above, rather than changing the type of pedals I tend to adjust the amp EQ to compensate for the room.

    Since I got the HX stomp, I tend to use their simple delay which is more along the lines of a basic digital delay. I do really like the tape delay settings as well, and the echorec models too.

    Since I like my delays to have some modulation, I usually use an "analog" or "tape" delay. Though, some of them are actually a digital engine....

    I use a Timeline, along with a Source Audio Dual Reverb ( which has a basic delay setting)

    I'm usually about 15 minutes late for rehearsal.

    TC electronic Flashback X4.

    Lots of modes, but I mostly use the digital delay when at church. Although I like the tube delay playing at home.

    That said, I would probably splurge for a Timeline something else with presets I'd I had to do it again.

    My buddy just bought the Flashback mini. We're having tons of fun with the Phone download presets. I love the Charlie Sexton (Arc Angels) Delay. I wanna buy the pedal just for that setting.

    I actually have a flashback on my board that I have set with a lot of repeats high in the mix that I use for swells. I haven't checked out that particular one.

    You should try it. The Charlie Sexton setting is subtle and organic. Great for Groovy music and Pink Floyd kind of space. Wouldn't work with swells.
    I tried to get my Boss Reverb/delay to do the same thing. Not very well.

    I actually downloaded a Worship Tape Delay on the app for my Nemesis and I'm loving it! The flutter really fills in the sound nicely! Now I see why the El Cap is on so many worship boards.

    Boss DD-7 -- Kinda clunky but an old standby. Very digital sounding (even the analog setting)
    Carbon Copy -- Analog, really woody sounding and somewhat natural. Its got a subtle, sort of detached sounding, decay to it. Not too out front and so very 3-D sounding.
    Memory Toy -- Nice artificial sounding tone to the delay, like synth sounding, good for stacking with other effects. Great for ambient swells and other noodley things.

    Electric~ DM2W into DD7. I like running both and getting that galloping syncopated sound.

    Acoustic~Deep Blue Delay

    This is a winning combo.
