(Text taken from the web)

simple user interface is 1 unit high and features the front of the unit includes 5 multi-coloured direct control knobs,

A series of 2 rows of 4 buttons each allows direct access to 4 individual presets on the top and the bottom row has push-buttons to turn on or off the feedback, modulation, phase invert and the x2 button, which can double or half the delay time by just pressing the button – neat!

The unit is build like a tank and when placed securely in a rack case, it will be with you for years.

If you have played through other digital delays, you will instantly find the overall tone more organic. Its forte is the lack of that cold, sterile digital tone most other digital delays from back in the Eighties to today are showing up with.

The precise millisecond delay readout also allows for extremely short delay settings, as low as 0.1 milliseconds and with the addition of the ‘phase inverter’ push-button, it is easy to create any modulation effect you want; phasing, flanging, chorusing or vibrato and even metallic matrix phasing and -flanging, where the modulation rate is not moving are a breathe to dial in … and they sound killer!

Dub producers and fans of general weirdness, might like to hear that increasing the feedback knob can turn the unit into self-oscillation – a “hidden” feature many love with analogue delays and not found often with digital delays.
Another plus that not many digital delays offer, especially more modern delay modelers, are the extremely low millisecond settings to produce, in combination with the phase-inverter push-button and a witty modulation setting, these metallic flange and phase tones known from early 80’s electro/synth bands such as Wire or Devo.
