Eventide TimeFactor Delay Pedal

The Eventide TimeFactor offers 10 studio-grade delays -- everything from deep digital to warm tape and a looper -- so you're sure to find the perfect echo.
The Eventide TimeFactor delay pedal is a powerful delay processor for the professional musician. This portable stompbox is loaded with ten of Eventide's most prized delay types with modulation controls, so whatever delay effect you're looking for, TimeFactor provides the tools to dial it in. You get two independent 3-second delays, a 12-second looper, and tap tempo or MIDI clock sync. Of course, the TimeFactor features true analog bypass and instant program change for the cleanest operation. Store 27 presets onboard; unlimited with MIDI! Best of all, this pedal is easily upgradeable via USB.

Time To Control

Eventide's TimeFactor offers ten delay types with the ability to control up to two delay types at once -- with independent time and feedback controls for each -- with controls for adjusting the balance of both delay effects as well as the overall effect level. Basic modulation controls like depth, speed, and filter are provided, and there's an "Xnob" which controls different parameters depending on which effect is selected. You can also connect your own external expression pedal, allowing for yet another level of user customizability.

Eventide ushers stompboxes into the modern age with expandable algorithms and an app store from which you can download expansion packs and other upgrades for TimeFactor and other Eventide stompboxes.

"Quite possibly the best stomp box delay out there!!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Great great delay pedal with tons of usable features. Excellent quality sound and it lets your tone really shine through!

Sound
Sound quality is excellent. Very distinguishable differences between settings which is better than most delay pedals. Its inspiringly good! Sound is excellent! It allows your tone to shine through the effected sound and makes you want to never use any other delay pedal!

Features
Plenty of usable features. All of the different delay settings are unique and interesting and usable settings that are very adjustable. The only thing I'm not a fan of (as with most pedals) is the power supply. I wish they had something sturdier because I'm worried of damaging the input. Otherwise its a great product with endless usable options and sounds!

Ease of Use
It can be used as plug and play. Granted its slightly more complicated than the average boss style delay, but you can find a good quick delay that is usable in most situations! That wouldn't really justify the price or necessarily be the best use for this pedal. If you are willing to take the time to fiddle with settings it becomes fairly intuitive to use. Besides once you start to save settings you like you can come back to them with a few pedal taps. I like the ability to dial in mili seconds as opposed to just using tap tempo. This way you can work with exact delay times in relation to song Bpm's.

Quality
Like a tank. read more Feels heavy and strong. I wouldn't want to throw it against the wall, but who would?! If you treat it like any other expensive piece of equipment you own, you'll get many years out of it!!!! Only problem is the power supply connector like I mentioned earlier!

Value
As with all of us we would love to pay as little as possible but realistically this pedal is worth every cent. Compared to other pedals of lesser quality and comparable price, this is worth that little extra!!!!!!

Manufacturer Support
No idea as the product works so well and I have not had any problems, I haven't had to contact them!

The Wow Factor
Looks cool!!!! Its inspiring to play. I could use the 2 boss dd5's I have, but the sound quality is miles ahead!!! It looks sick on my pedal board, like something out of star trek!
