    this is exactly what i think about it. it can do delay great sure, but you really want it for the pitch shifting delays. the bad thing about it is it cant do both a delay and a pitch shifted delay at once which is why you need a simple delay also. this is why ive been considering selling mine because is it really worth the extra $$ on top of a boss ps-3 when i pretty much use it for that sole reason? it is much nicer than the ps-3 and a bit more flexible but i dunno if i can justify the price just yet.

        I bought the timebender. Same price as the dd20, figure I could flip if I don't like.

                      The pitch shifting sounds pretty much identical to a Whammy or HarmonyMan - I've always assumed they just implemented that circuit into the wet/repeated signal path.

                        well i can tell you now that i have it why most of the demoes use the dynamic modes, as the pitch shifted repeats aren't as in your face as with the other setting. the 2 tape modes are really splendid. which is good because i loved the tape mode on the Hardwire DL8.



                        my 2 cents, and granted i've only played through it a week;



                        The Dynamic modes don't seem to react as well as the dynamic mode on say a TC Nova Delay (but that also has THE BEST dynamic mode)

                        doesn't really matter for me as i could give a **************** less about dynamic and rhythm mode playing anymore



                        Overall from what i've seen and heard, its a very intuitive i think and has alot of potential, sounds like a digitech delay overall (which is not a bad thing)

                        i've always wanted one for Frisell style delays.



                        the analog and tape modes are very very surprising, way better than boss or line 6. prob not as good as the strymon stuff.



                        but,



                        to add a multitude of pitch settings to the repeats, nothing else can really match it in the regard of applying basically whatever freaking pitch effect to it.

                          I had the Timebender and really it is an excellent delay. My only complaints were that A) the tracking on the pitch shifting sucks balls for chords, and B) the modulation has just 3 speed settings which don't go fast enough.



                          But, it sounds great and has a tonne of options.

                            so since i spoke about the timebender. i use to use the DD-20 for about 5 years. it is so dead easy and awesome to program and has settings to change that are actually usable and functional for someone that gigs out, has their settings and rig that they don't want to screw around with. its the ultimate utilitarian delay.



                            i got rid of it because it just was never powerful enough (soundwise) compared to everything else that started coming out in the last few years.

                              dude, these are pretty much my main 2 complaints as well, so far. but the modulation is good, just wish there was a speed and depth

                                Well there is depth control, but only for the three preset speeds.



                                it's also pretty whack that it runs on AC power, but not a dealbreaker.
