Line 6 Delay Modeler

Add to Wish List
This is it, folks; the fabled green box that's been igniting creativity, passion and sheer awe since Line 6 first released its digitally modeled marvels on the world in 2000. Containing 16 models based on legendary echo and delay boxes from the storied Maestro EP-1 Echoplex to the awesome T.C. Electronic 2290, the DL4 has in turn become a classic in its own right, as popular with guitarists as it is with singers, drummers, bassists, keyboardists, and anyone who wants a pure 24-bit true stereo signal path in the service of delays that run the gamut from gritty and psychedelic to pristine and heavenly.

You'd be insane to pack an original Roland RE-101 Space Echo or Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man into the back of your van for a club tour, but the DL4 packs models of those sounds and many more into a rugged, road-tested steel housing that can run for up to 30 hours on four C batteries or with the optional PX-2G power adaptor. Models of classic delay boxes - and the sweet choruses and vibratos that accompany many of them - are just the beginning; the DL4 also boasts innovative sounds like its Auto-Volume Echo, which combines a volume swell with a tweakable tape-style echo; or the outstanding Reverse Delay, which allows you to play stunning backwards guitar solos on the fly.

You also get those U2-style Rhythmic Delays in several metric flavors, super-cool Ping-Pong Delay effects, and outrageous stereo panned repeats. Look, if it aint in the DL4, it probably doesn't exist . . . until you create it. What's more, with its onboard 14-second looper, the DL4 is both the perfect practice tool and the ultimate creative canvas for crafting overdubs and creating textures, with its speed and reverse modes ideal for sonic adventurers and arrangement-minded recordists alike.

Like all Line 6 stompbox Modelers, the DL4 boasts a simple and sturdy front panel design, with four footswitches for saving and recalling your sounds, and six knobs for selecting models and tweaking parameters, with distinct assignments for each knob depending on the delay model youve chosen. Paired with the optional EX-1 expression pedal, which lets you morph between two radically different settings for each of your sounds, the DL4 is truly the ultimate delay pedal, making the history of echo and delay available to your creative future.

The most glitchy unpredictable, made from scrap pedal you can buy. Now that a strymon volante is 100$ more, or a Grand Canyon the same price why is this still around. Mine does different things each time, but usually crashes, cannot be used on stage unless you are a real gambler. But you can make many 2004 era guitar sputters. Would be cool if it worked!

As a person who own many delays (tape, vintage and modern analogs, digital) I'll say this will never replace the real thing. No contest! That being said, it very useful as a gigging alternative. So many touring musicians can't be wrong. I'm still learning different ways to use it (Still need to try it with an expression pedal) About the 14 second looper everyone is complaining about: tap the half speed switch first and you get a 28 second looper. It sounds to me like the buffer is activated continuously while in loop mode It can be set true bypass but I've recently found I needed a buffer at the end of my signal chain and found it does the job well. My biggest complaint is the lack of a "real" subdivision adjustment. It's a glaring oversight and I'm surprised that they never updated it. I believe there were some quality issues in the past...not sure about newer ones though. They also don't like having beer dumped onto them.

I've had this unit for a couple of months now. I upgraded from a MXR Digital Delay, there is definitely no comparison this thing excels in all categories. If you're serious about your Delay and want to keep that authentic analog sound then this is your pedal.

Seriously cool pedal. The delays are great but the looper is by far the best part for me. Reverse and halftime, which becomes double-time if you record in half-time mode. Shame it can only record 14 seconds. The built-in footswitches are terrible and will break, so do yourself a favour and replace them with quality switches. The thing is a huge pain to take apart though - and you really do have to completely take it apart to get at anything - so good luck.

16 vintage delays and the unmistakable analog warmth and tape warble which is perfect for filling digital mix gaps and post-processing. Great sound quality.

This is one of my go-to pedals. The delay options are awesome and the Tap tempo is super necessary. However, I've had to bring mine in for repairs more than once in the last year. Buy the store warranty. The Techs at L&M are great.
