The SDE-1000 is an easy-to-use delay/echo processor producing professional, studio-quality delay effects. With its simple and well laid-out controls, the SDE-1000 is easy to understand without ever cracking the manual. Delay length is displayed in milliseconds via the blue fluorescent display, and is set easily by holding down the +/- toggle button. The Time x2 button allows the user to quickly double the delay time (up to 1.5 seconds). The number of repeats is set with the Feedback control. When pushed past 12 o'clock, the Feedback control can allow the user to drive the signal back on itself as well, albeit not as stylishly as a tape delay--but still very useful for adding spice to a mix. The SDE-1000 also has a good sounding Modulation section with Rate and Depth controls for flanging and chorus. Also present is a button to switch the phase of the delayed signal, as well as four memory presets to store your favourite settings; just hold down to save--just like a car stereo!
