  • Analog Rack Delays

    So I am looking at Ibanez AD202, but those things are pricey .... I am looking for hall/cathedral ambiance at some what "high gain" i suppose. The maximum i wanna take it up to on occasion would be in the neighborhood of Tony' Iommi's delay on Eternal Idol. I am planning to run it with BBE 922 Rack version, and a version of Rocktron Hush, it will be on most of the time but i can see it being off for some parts or some songs.

    Danke!

    50 watt Laney AOR_ProTube 6 knobber (Vinnie Moore mod - V1 with second half engaged) | efxloop Rocktron Hush pedal/BBE 422A Sonic Maximizer | ->

    Hall sounds would be reverb (not delay), and digital (not analogue). For an analogue hall sound you would need to carry a cathedral in your gig bag.

    I have yet to be disappointed by my TC Hall of Fame. Do you have to have rack mount? If so, maybe check out a an older used Lexicon or Yamaha SPX-90. I have two Lexicon Alex units. They are quite crunchy so I would check it out before purchasing, but I love 12-bit digital effects. The higher end Lexicon units are superb.

    The new Lexicons, MPX I think they are called, can run multiple algorithms at once.

    One note about capturing big 80s style sounds: there is often a delay both pre- and post- reverb. I would say that chaining delay after reverb IS the sound of the 80s (after gated snare).

      Roland SRV units were great also, an almost-Lexicon-sounding unit for less than half Lexicon money, back in the day.

        Thanks Dudes,
        This is for live stuff, and i play with a lot of gain so reverb would be too mushy. Something to put before my BBE in the loop. Just to give a bit of space and wetness, I love the 9 series Ibanez analog delay, but i want rack unit to make it a bit more tighter, to my ears delays in the rack tighten up the bass much better ...
