Gosh, that makes me proud Rick, but you know how that is with

To explain a little more about the application:
For performance (as opposed to studio work, which, I have to admit, I

Setup One: the computer setup, which uses a computer and nothing else.
This is my main setup, also used for the MoinSound Studio sessions
(and basically the developed version of what I did use in 2008 when we
did perform together).
Setup Two: the noise setup, which consists of stompboxes, a mixer and
(nb: the rack effects are integrated into my modest home studio).
The delay pedal I'm looking for is for setup two, obviously. That
means stompbox (or possibly small tabletop) is a requirement, and
software or fancy rack stuff (e.g. Lexicon PCM42) are out of the
However, long delay time is not so much a requirement (about one

I'm aware myself of the old (80s) digitech PDS series - I used to own
the small RDS (rack version) and basically, I'm looking for something
like it, only as pedal. Is it possible that the "old Digitechs" you
