The Memory Lane Junior is a digital evolution of our original Memory Lane concept, the world's first analog delay with tap tempo.

By utilizing the same variable sample rate concept used in analog bucket brigade modulation, and adding custom analog anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters and companding, we've captured the ethereal essence of the Memory Lane ... in a much smaller footprint, with over twice the delay time, an extended frequency response, and standard 9V powering.

The the MLJr digital sampling engine's sole function is to copy, delay and reproduce the delay path signal with no mathematical manipulation at all - and unlike standard digital designs, there are no digital anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters. All signal paths around the sampling engine (direct path, feedback path and everything before and after the digital sampler) are analog paths carefully designed to provide a unique sonic signature that is unmistakably the Memory Lane Jr.

- Premium audio components
- 1200ms of delay time
- Tap Tempo with 1/4 note, dotted 8th and 8th note triplet subdivisions
- Adjustable modulation
- Standard 9V operation (battery or power supply)
- User selectable True-Bypass or Buffered with Delay Trails operation
- Analog signal paths surrounding a simple sample-delay-play engine
- Bi-color LED provides visual indication if tap subdivision and delay time

Contrary to most beliefs, this is not a true analog delay. It is a digitally processed all-analog signal path. Most are high on tape and analog echos and delay boxes as the FOTM, yet not everyone likes muddy repeats, especially in a high gain range. This one is it's own beast. Processed digitally for clean repeats, a very foot-friendly delay that allows a user to change it's features while standing and playing, not sitting at a desk whilst demoing. Very useable, clean delay. The modulation is also very nice, if you're into that sort of thing. A little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for i guess. Oh yeah, and if it applies to anyone, Made in Canada.

If there's one thing we can agree on, it's that there are too many delays out there. Most delays do pretty much the same thing, over, and over, and over, and over again. This has its own sound, not quite digital sounding, but not quite analog either. That is what I love about it. It doesn't self oscillate like most delays, but the feedback is nearly endless. And with its beautiful modulation, this has become one of my favourite delays, second only to the El Capistan, but that's a different machine altogether. Diamond has really put some effort into the layout of this delay. Like their tremolo and quantum leap, tap subdivisions are colour coded. A nice touch.
