TC ELECTRONIC VINTAGE DELAY.
The Vintage Delay will instantly bring you back to the days of warm,
lush, all-tube echoes, and at the same time it connects you to the
state-of-the-art digital delays of today. It builds on the legacy of
the classic TC 2290, the holy grail of delays. Resurrect the tape echo
of the 60s, recreate the analog temperate sound of the tubes, or be
cool with the studio quality delays. Tap-tempo lets you set the pace,
and several control knobs gives you the power to be delayed, but not
Delay Time Sets the delay time. The delay time can be set from approx. 10ms to 1500ms.
Feedback Level Sets the amount of signal that is fed back to the input of the delay line. The higher setting the more delay repeats.
Delay Level Controls the level of the delay repeats.
Output Level Output level for the effect.
To reproduce the slight deterioration of the delay repeats that was
significant to old tape echoes the Filter can be switched on. This
function gives a warmer sound on the delay repeats that allows long
relatively loud delay repeats to blend much better in your overall
Triplets In off
position (up), the tapped tempo equals the delay time between the
repeats. If you e.g. tap quarter notes at tempo 120BPM, the delay will
repeat times 2 per second. When the triplet function is activated the
delay repeats will play quarter note triplets according to the tapped
tempo. That means 6 repeats per bar.

1/4 connection for input signal. Connect your guitar here. The input
also accepts a line signal (sensitivity is -10dB as on most common semi
Output 1/4 connection for output. Connect the output to your amp.
Two functions can be externally controlled from and external MIDI
device sending MIDI CCs. Send MIDI CC 20 to control the Tap Tempo.
Send MIDI CC 21 to switch the delay On/Off.
Direct The direct output sends unprocessed signal to e.g. a tuner or a second amp.
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEWS:
Ease of Use: 10
easy. Tap tempo is a must for any gigging player, but most analog
pedals don't offer it. Who's gonna bend over all night, messing with
the delay time for each tune? Not me, dude! I had a Maxxon AD900 and
returned it when I saw this. Comparable sound, but you can work with
this! Very compact and lightweight, also.
Sound Quality: 10
quiet. Sounds buttery and smooth like analog, but performs with digital
utility. I A/B'd it against the Maxxon AD900, and could discern little
difference at home while critically listening.
