Re: Eventide Time Factor

Hi Chris,
Just spotted your email again, I'd kept it from a while ago.

Firstly, the TimeFactor is (in my view) an exceptional delay pedal with 
incredibly good sounding delay models, great flexibility and lots of 
for external control (MIDI, very flexibly assignable external footswitches 
and expression pedal). It isn't primarily a looper, although for a 12 
unit, it is very well featured with various play and overdub modes, loop 
feedback and filtering that can be changed on the fly or via 
footswitches/pedal. It can shift the loop very flexibly too to quarter 
(48 seconds), or in fifths, semitones, octaves, etc. you can move the 
& end points of a loop (again with external control (or MIDDI). There is a 
glitch at the loop crossover point which has improved a little with a 
software revision but I'd really need it to be silent otherwise the glitch 
intrudes upon notes that cross over the loop point. The looper is in mono 
and doesn't have a delay of its own (unfortunately). Usefully, you can 
the looper as a programme and as such, can save different versions with 
different settings.

I am just starting to use the looper a little but mainly use it for all 
wonderful delays and controllability. One of the most important things 
this unit is that it has a USB port and is already being upgraded, V2(beta 
version so far) already fixes some major limitations of V1. To have a 
where the manufacturer seem to be taking upgrades very seriously is great 
(and about time too). It is expensive. One critisism I do have (which 
be mended in an upgrade) is that the box is a couple of inches shorter 
I'd like - I find the footswitches closer together than I like.

Hope that's useful info.
