“Often times in the studio I'll create new guitar textures by combining various stomp boxes and delay effects with manipulative recording techniques and harmony layers resulting in some pretty complex tones. Amazingly, each one of the Eventide units that have resided in my various touring rigs throughout the years, is able to easily and faithfully recreate those crazy experimental guitar sounds and successfully bring them to the live stage night after night! It really is a fantastic creative tool. ” Also, the TimeFactor is listed below, linked to him.more
"Hamilton runs all of his pedals in front of the amp and controls the rig with a Custom Audio Electronics RS-5 MIDI Foot Controller designed by Bob Bradshaw. The signal starts with a Hello Kitty-modified Fryette Valvulator before going into an MXR Custom Audio Electronics Boost/Overdrive. From there the signal hits a Real McCoy Custom wah, Eventide TimeFactor…" states [this rig rundown](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/21355-rig-rundown-helmets-page-hamilton).more
According to Ben Gibbard in this Premier Guitar Rig Rundown, the Deathcab for Cutie guitarist uses an Eventide Timefactor delay pedal. "These are great because you can store the settings elsewhere on a computer and then put them on a new pedal. These have been fairly bulletproof for me," Gibbard said at (17:15).more
"Eventide Time Factor. Another posh delay unit. I use this one purely for its backwards setting. It takes some getting used to but when it’s set up as above, you play in a few seconds of guitar (which you don’t hear) and then it feeds it back to you reversed. With a bit of practise you can appear to play backwards in real time. (Gem used to do this with an earlier pedal made by Line 6 in the Oasis era)."more
Zinner uses his vast array of effects to achieve the band’s recorded sounds through samples and looping, as well as compensate for the lack of a full-time bass player with a broader tonal spectrum. His main board (far right) is home to a DigiTech JamMan, Line 6 MM4, ProCo DeuceTone RAT (his primary fuzz tones), Boss DD-7, HBE Power Screamer, and Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz. To the left of that, his second board has a DigiTech Whammy, another DigiTech Jam Man, a Line 6 DL4, Electro-Harmonix POG, and TC Electronic Flashback Delay. His third board contains a second Line 6 DL4, and three Eventide pedals: TimeFactor, PitchFactor, and Space. Finally, by his amps, is a fourth board with two more sample-loaded DigiTech JamMan pedals. Before his signal goes into his amps, it hits a TC Electronic Classic Booster + Distortion.more
"In the effects loop of the preamp, I have the Eventide Time Factor, and I also have and an old Alesis MidiVerb 2, which I only use on preset 45, which is called the 'Bloom' setting. It's a reverse reverb kind of thing, and it's very beautiful." – Jeff Schroeder on the Eventide TimeFactormore
In this July 8th 2015 Future Music article, Emika explains what she uses in her studio. On page 5, she says: "But my favourite delay is the Eventide TimeFactor, which is like a digital pedal." In the photo on the same page, a part of the Eventide TimeFactor can be seen to the left of the Metasonix D-1000.more
“I like the Eventide stompboxes because of the wide range of timbres and effects you can get from just the two (TimeFactor and ModFactor) units. The fidelity and dynamic range are also very impressive. The MIDI functionality make them very useful indeed when working with a computer or controller. The stereo outputs give a rich, wide sound field. The fidelity is by far sufficient for studio work, and they are mechanically sturdy enough to deal with any club gig. ”more

"The pedals on the board at the moment are an RC Booster, Providence Compressor, Keeley Mod Tube Screamer, Eternity Love Pedal, Fulltone Octafuzz, MoonPhase (phaser), Arion SCH1 (chorus), Demeter Trem, Eventide Time Factor, McCoy Wah, and a GigRig Wet Box which allows me to use both sides of the Eventide Delay pedal. One side is set for my normal delays and the other side is set so that I can have Dub style delays which I can call up just by hitting a switch on and off on the GigRig Pro 14 leaving the delay trails carrying on while I’m playing another part."more
This is really a great delay pedal. It sounds great and is easy to program presets or algorithms. I like being able to split the left and right delay signals. Its a great compliment to the Eventide Space pedal. Lots of fun.
I've gone through quite a few delays. I use different ones for different gigs, but I always love the TimeFactor. I like the sound better than the Strymon one (which I've also had on my board). It does it's own thing. It has tons of features, but it's still incredibly user-friendly.
