The most in-demand analog delay ever built. Musicians love it and collectors cherish it. Experience the analog edge. Nothing can compare to the organic sound of analog delay, and no one does analog like the Deluxe Memory Man! Up to 550 mS of vibrant echo that rivals tape delay; lush, spatial chorus and haunting vibrato are just a few of the treats in the Memory Man's sonic smorgasbord!
The BLEND control allows you to vary the mix of direct and delayed signals; it is set to the center position equal levels of both.
Set the LEVEL control so that the OVERLOAD LED blinks on with the loudest notes you play, but does not come on very brightly or too frequently. Overdriving the unit will cause distortion.
FEEDBACK provides delay repeats, or multiple echoes. If set very high, runaway oscillation will occur. Fairly high feedback with short delay settings produces a reverb effect.
CHORUS / VIBRATO KNOB
The CHORUS/VIBRATO control introduces a modulation in the delay time: slow for chorus, faster for vibrato. This produces a “Doppler” pitch shifting in the delayed signal. A rich, vibrant chorus effect is produced with the switch set to CHORUS, delay fairly short, blend at the center, chorus set high, and feedback fairly high. When you determine the control settings for your favorite effects, make note of them so you can quickly set up the unit before playing.
The DEPTH control sets the amount of modulation in the delay time.
The DELAY control determines the time between direct and delayed signals, and between the repeats when feedback is used. Strange, eerie and unusual pitch-shift effects can be produced by changing the delay while playing, especially while using feedback.
