      I love you.

      Yeah the 5 is way better, more features than the 3.

      The HOLD is usable, tap tempo ability, reverse delay....

          Both for different reasons.

          DD3 is a workhorse, dead simple to use and can be easily modded to give you a low pass type of repeat (darker on each repeat). It's less expensive. Everyone should have one.

          DD5 has more features and is more complicated, but it has the external tap tempo option. I like the fact that it can give you divisions for tap tempo as well.

              The reverse alone on the 5 is worth owning one for.

                  I guess when you compare the two side by side the dd-5 is "more complex" technically cause it had more going on but in general it's still a super simple, straight forward delay.

                    The DD3 is stupid simple though. It really has three useable modes, and I almost never left the 800ms setting. You could say it just had three knobs. In comparison the DD5 is muchore complicated, especially when you connect a tap tempo switch, which changes divisions depending on the setting. As soon as something gets past three or four knobs it's complicated.

                    I wouldn't say it's a timefactor, or timeline, or even an El Capistan, but it's certainly much complicated than a dd3.

                    I still say both are great for different reasons.

                    One thing more I'll say is that comparing the DD-5 and DD-7 is better. I think the 7 wins. I own all three and have had a DD6 I would choose the DD-3 first, DD-7, DD-5, and then the DD-6.

                      +1 and the old MIJ DD3 and DD2 have the big chip board and sound fantastic!

                          Regarding the hold mode, the 3 has 1 second and the 5 can do 2 seconds.
                          But I think you can only pitchbend the looped riff with the d time knob on the 3. I don't remember being able to do that on the 5.

                              Which to me is probably the greatest part of the 3. But I do absolutely find the 5 more useful.
                              And the 5 does stereo panning delay.
