  • Line 6 DL4 Secrets Revealed!

    I am trading in (or selling to one of you fine folks) my Echo Park at the end of the month and taking the plunge on a DL4. I am kind of a delay klutz. I just set it on basic and use the tap tempo. I have searched the net for some kind of DL4 site with hints and I can't find one. What are some tricks, secrets, tone ideas, emulations that you fine fellows use?
    Guitars- Melancon, Paul Reed Smith
    Effects- Line 6, EMMA, Xotic, EB, Dunlop, Fulltone, Voodoo Labs, Analog Man, Boss
    Amp- Fender

    Use an expression pedal to funk with the parameters in real time. Also, the loop function allows you to create some really intense stuff, because you got the 1/2 switch, the reverse feature, and overdubbing. This allows you to record at 1/2 speed, then play loop it at twice the speed, then you can overdub a reversed passage at half speed or a quarter speed of what the loop is playing...and!...you get the point!

      try the mod delay...delay 0, repeats 0...100% wet, you get a chorus pedal too!
      or, try analog delay, 0 delay, 0 repeats, 100% wet, and play with the tweak and tweeze to get a cool overdrive.
      maybe use the sweep delay- 0 delay time, 0 repeats, 100% wet, and you have a groovy auto wah too.
      and, use the non-true bypass mode so your delays trail off when you turn the pedal off.

      one more- start loops in 1/2 speed mode for 28 seconds of delay time.

        How much degradation is there to the signal at 1/2 speed? I'm looking into a delay/loop gizmo. There are a number of them out there.

        I've also read in a couple places about an annoying background "tick" sound with the DL4.

          This fancy stuff is all very well, but can it sound like a WEM Copicat?

          Seriously. I'm interested in something I can run in front of the amp that will sound like a tape echo. (WEM Copicat is my reference point beacuse I had one years ago).
