"The Time Machine is a fantastic little unit. It sounds great, it's easy to use and it has some hidden features I want to tell you about. If you look inside here on the side you find a little black hole that connects you to parallel universes, and in those universes there's more of you basically playing guitar. And you can summon those guitar players to help you fix those mistakes right during the performance. Let's say you're playing a solo and you hit a bad note, and then you're worried about it all night wishing you could go back in time and fix it. Well just by stepping on a couple of these switches here and setting the dials just right you can go back in time, you fix that note, and no one will notice the difference."more
Chris Bishop owns a "Vox Time Machine Delay that was modded" ([source](http://www.vintageguitar.com/22147/chris-bishop/)). Expanding on this in an [Ultimate Guitar](https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/interviews/interviews/crobot_feel_playing_is_about_not_trying_to_play_notes_but_playing_noises.html) review, he said, "That's the one that has the super crazy oscillation. I took the tap out of it; I did some changes to the knobs so that I can hit them with my feet. I use that for building tension between parts.".more
This pedal does everything as far as delay, so many ways to tweak your tone. Also, I love that it can split your output into a dry and wet output. I use this to split my guitar signal into two different amps for a great stereo sound. With one amp on delay, you can really have fun with heaps of different set ups.
I like this pedal because I don't use delay very much and it has just enough options to be interesting, without being overwhelming. As I wouldn't want to drop a ton of money on a delay when I rarely use one, this was a great option for me.
