TC Electronic D-Two Multi-Tap Rhythm Delay is based on the TC 2290. The D-Two can provide up to 10 seconds of delay, features 24-bit A/D-D/A conversion and 24-bit internal processing, comes with 50 factory presets and 100 user, and provides S/PDIF digital I/O at 44.1kHz and 48kHz. 6 unique direct-access features include Spatial (provides extra-wide delay at a single keystroke), Ping-Pong (pick any 5 patterns and set the relationship between panning speed and delay tempo), Reverse (reverse delay with the flick of a key), Dynamic (sets the release time and threshold to let the input signal control level of delay), Chorus (hit a single key to instantly add chorus or flange to your delay), and Filter (increases filtering as repeats decay). With the D-Two you are able to tap actual rhythm patterns consisting of up to 10 taps directly into the unit. On the below picture you can see the rack of delays as used on The Wall tour in 2012. The rack includes Samson PowerBrite PB10 power conditioner and Korg DTR-2000 tuner.more
In this Sound On Sound interview, precisely on the "Jumble Sale Studio" section, a bunch of Jenkinson's gear is mentioned. Among them, the TC Electronics D-Two Delay. The item can also be seen in the photo gallery of the interview, along with other pieces in a rack (from top to bottom, TC Electronics D-Two Delay, DBX 1066, Drawmer LX-20 and the Eventide Orville). It is the 8th photo, here's a quick link to it: http://dt7v1i9vyp3mf.cloudfront.net/styles/news_large/s3/imagelibrary/S/Sq_09.jpg?3CE8TrbIbKGqUfDboUWA_6We1exoFnHv=&itok=6tgbEa6N From the interview: "It's a ragtag collection of stuff, and there's no discernible overall 'vintage' rationale behind the collection as a whole. The most significant pieces are a Roland TR909, TB303, SH101, V?Synth XT and V?Bass 99, Neve 1073 mic pre, AKG BX15 spring reverb, TC Electronics D2 delay, DBX 1066, a self?made mechanical reverb, Tom Jenkinson's custom?made spring reverb: "The reverb uses four pairs of Accutronics type 1, 4, 8 and 9 springs. The stereo input stages incorporate a soft-clip circuit, high shelving EQ and spring selectors that send the input to a given pair of springs. There are four output stages to which the springs can be assigned. Each output stage has signal invert, volume and pan controls. The springs can be used in parallel or series, where one spring signal is fed into another. The circuit grounding uses star topology. It was used extensively on the album Hello Everything, in conjunction with my AKG BX15 and BX20 reverbs. It is clearly audible at the starts of 'Bubble Life', 'Circlewave' and 'Plotinus'.” Tom Jenkinson's custom?made spring reverb: "The reverb uses four pairs of Accutronics type 1, 4, 8 and 9 springs.

A huge amount of gear has also been and gone, like the Yamaha VSS80 8?bit toy keyboard sampler shown in some late '90s television footage of Jenkinson."more
Joe Don Rooney’s guitar tech, David Graef, describes the guitarist’s rig as “a fun one. It’s a dry/wet/dry rig with a center 4x12 cabinet, with just the dry amp and two Mathers 1x12 cabinets for the effect left and right signals. We start with two dual Shure UR4D wireless units that go into a line selector made by RJM Technology. From the selector, the signal goes to my pedal board, where I do the majority of his patch changes, and then returns to an amp selector that feeds signal to one of two Bogner Ecstasy 101B heads [miked with three Shure SM57s and a Royer ribbon, pictured], a Blackstar Series One 200 head and a Diamond Decada head, and then out to the 4x12 dry cabinet. I take a line-level signal and feed the outboard effects [TC Electronic D-Two, Fireworx and Reverb 4000]. They return to and are blended through a Midas Venice 160 console and sent to a VHT 292 amp that powers the two Mathers 1x12 cabinets onstage for the wet signal.more
Summers also incorporated Marshall amps and a Roland guitar synthesizer into his rig. Of course, times have changed and so has Summers’ gear. For the ’07/’08 Police reunion tour, he used an elaborate two-piece Bob Bradshaw switching system, the right wing of which includes three Boss FV-500H Volume/Expression pedals, one used to control a rack-mounted Lexicon PCM 70 and two for an Eventide Eclipse, a Moogerfooger Analog Delay, and a Boss Loop Station and Chromatic Tuner. The left wing houses the main Bradshaw switching unit, plus another FV-500H and a Dunlop Cry Baby wah. Summers’ off-stage rack also contains his main Custom Audio OD100 amp and a Carvin DCM150 used to power stereo effects (each amp feeds two Mesa/Boogie Rectifier 2x12 speaker cabs), plus additional signal processors, including a T.C. Electronic TC1210 Spatial Expander/Stereo Chorus/Flanger, Bob Bradshaw V-Comp Tube Compressor, D-Two Multi-tap Rhythm Delay…more
"I've been basically using TC Electronics. They're Danish as far as I know. This time around, I've been using them. Before it was maybe just pedals or whatever that weren't as effective. So I've mainly gone to a rack. I use a D2 delay module. Yeah, it's called a D2. And then the reverb unit I use - I don't use a lot of other multi-effects, I use a little chorus on a couple of songs and a little trem on some of the stuff on Final Straw. But most of it on this record is delay and reverb. I think that unit's called an M2."more
