Re: DL4 question



One of the only delays I've used lately that behaves this way (and 
synchs to a MIDI clock) is the Electrix Mo-FX  You can get really 
interesting delay effects by screwing with the knobs (all accessable via 
MIDI) or changing the MIDI clock, which is an automatic feature of the 
Repeater.

(the Repeater part is sarcasm)
