RE: Line 6 DL-4 Delay Modeler

    I've had mine for about 2 years.I've gotten some very cool stuff out 
it,but it's not very reliable, Turns out 14 seconds is about a sec or 2 
than the lenght I need which is frustrating ,I end up playing a little bit 
faster than I really want to to get a certain kind of groove feel,that's 
long enough to build some call and response. I really really like the 
reverse and half time features,and I use the dynamic,ducked delay alot. It 
randomly malfunctions,the tone has been getting steadily tinnier for the 
last 6 months or so.  I wish I could have a pedal that I could visually 
loop length,change it ,and slice and dice samples,like on a DAW or 
set up.

...Anyhow re:the DL-4 delay modeler, this is among the best gear I've had -
and maybe the most versatile. Much better than the Lexicon which, being 
digital, has
less bottom end and depth whereas the Line 6 is...analog bliss baby! It's 
far more intense
than the Alesis Bitrman distortion which many rave about here - and which 
totally smoked
by the DL-4. Recommended here for any ambient, atmospheric or other far 
music sampling
because it is so extremely versatile in effects you can mix.I've not seen 
anything in a moderate
price range that has this kind of versatility.
