MF delay v2 7 seconds?

Postby unfiltered37 » Tue Jan 29, 2019 9:44 pm

I am not that familiar with how analog delays work as far as clocking, but when my tape delay just gave out, I had to find a quick cheap replacement until i can get it fixed. I bought an EHX memory boy. And it pretty much sucks. It's okay at higher delays, but starts to sound glitchy and digital at lower delay times, which I am guessing is because of less BBD chips? I think I have to give up on tape delays, so I was thinking of getting the MF v2 delay, but it says it has 7 seconds of delay. But how does it sound at the lower delays? I don't really need that much delay time, but I would like to have at least half a second without sounding nasty.

Hi! :)

I think there is no 7 second BBD delay out there. You have misread 700 ms.
At lower rates, BBD delays will mostly sound "glitchier" than tape delays.

Anyone correct me.

Well I think the guy on the ad I was looking at misread it and i just repeated it. I did mix up higher and lower delay times in my OP.

That actually makes me feel better though, can't imagine how bad 7 seconds would sound.

My 104z doesn't sound glitchy at the highest delay time. I just watched a demo that took it all the way to 700ms, and it sounds great, so I think i will pull the trigger. Wonder why they stopped making them.

I happen to have been using a 104Z for years and tried a MiniFooger Delay at some point.
The MiniFooger went away because the continuous time setting bored me: I much prefer being able to set a range and access two sonic characters.

Yeah i didnt use the slow setting for years, the fast was plenty dark for me, and i love to set the mix past 12 o clock. But i recently experimented with different very tiny amounts of lfo in the slow setting and got some incredible textures on my clavinet. The 101 and 104 in that order on the clav with a slight amount of lfo on delay time is freakin amazing on clavinet. Entirely different sound than the standard wah clav. So much more expressive. Love being able to sustain long notes and take the attack out and swell in. I am married to Clavinet and minimoog for life.also have the mp201 so can control both filters at the same time. 2 pole on the clav with some subtle chorus with the 104 but different than any other chorus i have heard

On mini though, the slow setting doesnt do much for me so the minifooger will work.

If you happen to record some of your Clavinet experiments, I would be glad to hear them :)
