Stereo Delay Pedal with 1ms to 4,000ms Delay Time

this is worth the money just for the preamp and the 1 to 1 port of that classic U2 delay from unforgettable fire and Joshua tree... but it does way more. This unit overs everything the the TC Flashbacks don't. I wouldn't pit the TC stuff against a strymon for tape delay or anything but I feel confident that the SDD's digital delay will own on the Strymon DIG. Its got MIDI, so I;m happy. My live rig just uses this and the TC. Between them they get close enough to every delay I would w ant to use and they're all built into my presets library.
This is the most amazing effect I have ever utilized. While it was definitely made popular by the Edge of U2 it has an infinite amount of different capabilities... in other words it is very versatile. It is of superior quality and is extremely durable.
Great (but huge) Delay!
First-off, this pedal has a very large footprint—like around a 3 x 5090B box equivalent. However, it's very functional, as compared to other pedals that have a ton of knobs and buttons. An added expression pedal will allow control over almost all of the attributes (including button states), which gives this pedal a lot depth. The only real (known) issue is that the pedal's SDD-3000 delay mode brings the input level down a bit (compared to all the other modes), which can be annoying if you're in a live performance situation... There is a built-in input/output attenuator which is useful... I've been using this pedal for about 6 months (practice and live performances) and it really adds a lot of great tone to my setup.
The Korg SDD-3000 digital delay,has 8 distinct delay types. I use this for U2 stuff it really is the business. check out the you tube channels. Endorsed by Dallas Schoo (U2 tech guy). Only had this for a little while so havent been able to really come to terms with its capabilities. Can be midi controlled which these days is a must. Will hopefully do a proper review when I know a little more about it.
Maybe one of the only pedals I need
This delay pedal does so much in just one. I think you'd need 3 different effect units just to cover what the SD-3000 does on its own. It actually has modulating features in it as well, doing a combination of chorus, flange, phase, vibrato and panning effects. Or a least pseudo versions of them. The delay is just stunning on this thing alone. Would recommend it to anyone with the cash. It is expensive, unfortunately.
