Product Description

The "time machine" dual-mode delay pedal is the second effect pedal created in collaboration between the world-renowned guitarist Joe Satriani and VOX. With two delay modes and a Hi-Fi/Lo-Fi switch, it delivers a wide range of delay sounds and yet remains remarkably easy to use.

Features
Dual-mode delay: "modern" and "vintage."

Two EQ modes: "Hi-Fi" or "Lo-Fi"

Broad delay time range, with tap tempo control

Independent wet and dry stereo outputs

Two delay modes to handle any situation
The time machine provides both "modern" and "vintage" delay modes. The modern mode mirrors your original sound with full clarity and fidelity, and will fit any style of music. As its name suggests, the vintage mode delivers the sound of a classic tape delay unit. A proprietary saturation circuit creates a warm, analog sound with a nice sense of distortion. Gentle modulation is also applied in the vintage mode, reproducing the slight warbling produced by a tape-based delay. The amazing effectiveness is the result of an uncompromising process of testing and refining carried out by Joe and VOX.

Hi-Fi/Lo-Fi switch summons up Joe Satriani's custom tone
Joe wanted to get a sound that blends nicely with the other performers - whether you're on stage or in the studio - and yet also has some thickness to the tone. The solution was to add a Hi-Fi/Lo-Fi switch to the time machine. The Hi-Fi mode delivers a transparent, uncolored sound. The Lo-Fi mode, on the other hand, provides a distinctive EQ, combining both high-pass and low-pass filters. This EQ uses filters that have been precisely adjusted to Joe's taste, so that your guitar sound will blend naturally in the mix - without obscuring or interfering with the other players.

Versatile functions equal a diverse range of sound
The time machine is a pedal like no other, one that expands your sound-creating potential through a variety practical functions. The delay time is adjustable over a broad range - from 30ms slapback to nearly six full seconds of delay*. You can also use the tap tempo switch to set the delay as triplets, eighth notes, dotted eighth notes, or quarter notes depending on the delay range position setting. The chicken-head knobs that are a VOX tradition (and also favored by Joe) allow you to make fine adjustments - even while holding a pick - so it's easy to make quick yet precise changes. There are also two OUTPUT jacks, so the unprocessed "dry" sound and the processed "wet" sound can be output separately. By connecting these two jacks to different amps, you can obtain spacious delay sounds that are highly effective in any playing environment.

(*) Maximum delay is 5800 milliseconds when using the tap temp switch and 1000 milliseconds when using the delay control.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fantastic, great sounds, versatile delay."
Sound: The sound is fantastic for a digital delay. The modern/vintage toggle actually makes quite a difference. In modern mode it sounds really crisp and clear (and better than my old BOSS DD-5), and in Vintage mode it sounds a bit warmer, softer, slightly dampened, etc, with some very subtle warbly effects added for that tape delay emulation. The LoFi/HiFi switch is even more subtle, with the LoFi supposedly rolling back the high and low frequencies a but, but I can barely tell a difference. Feature: Has easy to use and fast Tap Tempo. When In tap tempo you can adjust the repeats to different note lengths which is awesome. Stereo out. Also, the chicken knobs are great because they can easily be adjusted with your feet, which on the fly is awesome. Ease of Use: Couldn't get any easier. There really isn't a way to make it easier. Adjust knobs to acquired taste. Quality: Seems very sturdy. Nice solid housing. All knobs and buttons have a nice feel to them. Value: Pretty pricey at full retail value, but I think it is worth it for the quality of the unit. I realize it is a signature pedal so Satch has to get his cut for lending his name to it as well. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed. The Wow Factor: Attractive pedal. The green color and and rounded corners make it look nice with other pedals. I like the green and red color of the LED lights as well, like Xmas morning everyday! YAY! Also nice that Satch didn't request his name on the front display. I don't like when signature series gear has the artist's name on it where you can't help but see it; it feels like I'm not even playing my own gear then. Overall: I won't be shopping for another delay. I'm very satisfied with this one. I may perhaps get an analog delay for the true analog sound, but really, this is all I need.
Style of Music: I like it all. Mainly rock, metal, instrumental guitar though.
