Containing 16 models based* on legendary echo and delay boxes from the storied Maestro® EP-1 Echoplex to the awesome T.C. Electronic® 2290, the DL4™ has in turn become a classic in its own right, as popular with guitarists as it is with singers, drummers, bassists, keyboardists, and anyone who wants a pure 24-bit true stereo signal path in the service of delays that run the gamut from gritty and psychedelic to pristine and heavenly.
DL4 packs models of those sounds and many more into a rugged, road-tested steel housing that can run for up to 30 hours on four “C” batteries or with the optional PX-2G power adaptor. Models of classic delay boxes—and the sweet choruses and vibratos that accompany many of them—are just the beginning; the DL4 also boasts innovative sounds like its “Auto-Volume Echo,” which combines a volume swell with a tweakable tape-style echo; or the outstanding “Reverse Delay,” which allows you to play stunning backwards guitar solos on the fly.
You also get those U2-style “Rhythmic Delays” in several metric flavors, super-cool “Ping-Pong Delay” effects, and outrageous stereo panned repeats. Look, if it ain’t in the DL4, it probably doesn’t exist... until you create it. What’s more, with its onboard 14-second looper, the DL4 is both the perfect practice tool and the ultimate creative canvas for crafting overdubs and creating textures, with its ½ speed and reverse modes ideal for sonic adventurers and arrangement-minded recordists alike.
