R: Zoom delay pedals at zzounds

I have used some Zoom pedals with my synths, and (if you are not looking 
Total High Sound Quality) they work pretty well. As for the frequency 
your problems could come on the high registers, not on the low ones.Low
frequences can really be an issue on Pitch Shifters, not really on delays
(but I love the way my Korg A1 pitch shifters and my Boss vf-1 shifters and
mono guitar synth go mad with the seventh string on my schecter, and even 
my keyboard.....:-)) The bitrate conversion is 32khz, 16bit, so they are a
bit limited on the high frequences (it seems that at zoom they calculated
that 32 could be enough for guitars). The delay is a killer. I've used it
both live and in studio and it just kicks for the price, and at 59 $ it is
even better. The only "issue" is that all the Zooms 5xx are mono in - 
out. It is not the better delay on earth, but in that price range I bet 
it is the best (and it is a great noise-machine).
