          The Korg SDD-3000 is great... I had one for a while. Great tone for a digital delay

            I don't have many pics of mine other than in the context of the whole studio, but here's a list of what I do have. I love me some old rack delays.

            Deltalab Effectron ADM 64 - has doubling and flanging as well. good for giving something a bit more presence.

            Electrix Mofx Multi FX (x2) - The delay in these is awesome. You can assign them to pre selected frequency bands. Only want to filter the mids or the highs and the mids? No problem! It doesn't feedback really, but you can make it grab a loop in real time by popping it in and out and then maxing the repeats. Tap tempo too. twisting the delay time and repeats makes for some wild, warped out glitches.

            Ibanez AD202 Multimode Analog Delay - Probably my favorite delay. Analog delay with modulation. It might as well be it's own instrument. I've used it as such at a few shows.

            Ibanez HD1500 Digital Delay - Harmonizer, and Digidelay. I love that you can set a quick delay time on it, and then double and quadruple the delay time at the push of a button. Makes for some glitchy weirdness when you cycle it back from a long delay time back to the shortest setting. Sort of zippering effect. It is unique, and probably unintended...

            Ibanez DM1000 Digital Delay - I bought this a while back for cheap, and haven't had time to plug it in due to my recent move. It should be cool though. Typical 80's digidelay with modulation.

            Line6 Echo Pro Delay - great studio tool. I mainly use it for the filtered delay, or the echoplex model. Sometimes analog delay too.

            Korg SDD-3000 - Used to use it on vocals ala Skinny Puppy. Worked great for twisting things. Has lots of unique modulation options. Currently non-functional. Needs repair.

            Deltalab AcoustiComputer - Some freaky rack delay I picked up cheap and have wanted to fix for a LONG time. Has some very unique capabilities on it. Some day...

                Thanks! There's sooooo many out there for cheap that are really cool.

                And that's not even getting into the tabletop modules or multi fx wih delay!

                  Roland SDE-330: tons of delay options--reverse, multi-tap, did all sorts of other things like chorus, pitch, flange, doubling, inverse and I had bought it for $100. I would still have it had I not decided to start a pedalboard. Does give a slight volume boost when engaged.

                  Lexicon LXP-15 II: Reverbs were its specialty, but the delays were pretty good, too. Excellent modulated delay. Sold it for the same reason as the Roland.

                    not quite a rack so much as a VCR looking box, but the Boss DM-100 I had was ****************ing awesome.

                    Should not have sold that guy
                    check out my sweet dealzzz, I got tons of them

                      Got this for $50 and it goes into self oscillation....
                      Think it's from the 80s.

                        i came in here to say this - reverse, hold, and delay, pretty cool little unit

                          Man, I'd love to have one of those. It's the one Martin Hannett used.

                            I think the one I have is a Digitech RDS 3.6 or something. Well worth the 25.00 bucks it cost me. I really like the doubling affect.

                              The RDS delays are great! The 8000 and 7.6 are like a PDS8000 and 20/20 together in rack form.

                              I love the Vortex too...but I would love to have a Plugin version of it.

                              I had a 4 second Ibanez Delay, dd100 I think, that was pretty neat. The modulation was really wide, and I remember getting a neat arpeggio thing out of it.
