Product Description for the Line 6 DL4 Stompbox Delay Modeler Pedal
The Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler offers you an incredible array of sounds, from a tube driven, tape loop echo (complete with adjustable wow and flutter), through 24-bit squeaky clean digital echo, to real-time reverse delay. Not only that, but the Line 6 DL4 gives you complete programmable control over all aspects of the sound in the studio and on the stage. Incredibly simple to use, the Line 6 DL4 is an amazingly powerful tool offering you delay effects never before available in a single box.
The Line 6 DL4 and Flexible Digital Modeling
The Line 6 DL4 offers digital modeling based on 15 of those vintage delay and echo effects you've always yearned for. The DL4 includes EP-1 Tube Echoplex, EP-3 solidstate Echoplex, Space Echo, Deluxe Memory Man, Reverse delay, Rhythmic delay, Dynamic delay, and many more.
The Loop Sampler on the Line 6 DL4 includes 14 seconds of memory + 800ms of Pre-delay (sort of a delay within a delay), and features half speed and/or reverse overdubbing, and more.
The Line 6 DL4 is Flexible and Rugged
The Line 6 DL4 packs models of those sounds and many more into a rugged, road-tested steel housing that can run for up to 30 hours on four "C" batteries or with the optional PX-2G power adaptor. Models of classic delay boxes—and the sweet choruses and vibratos that accompany many of them—are just the beginning; the Line 6 DL4 also boasts innovative sounds like its "Auto-Volume Echo," which combines a volume swell with a tweakable tape-style echo; or the outstanding "Reverse Delay," which allows you to play stunning backwards guitar solos on the fly.
With the Line 6 DL4, you also get those U2-style "Rhythmic Delays" in several metric flavors, super-cool "Ping-Pong Delay" effects, and outrageous stereo panned repeats. Look, if it ain’t in the DL4, it probably doesn’t exist...until you create it. What's more, with its onboard 14-second looper, the Line 6 DL4 is both the perfect practice tool and the ultimate creative canvas for crafting overdubs and creating textures, with its 1/2 speed and reverse modes ideal for sonic adventurers and arrangement-minded recordists alike.
The Line 6 DL4: Easy to Use
Like all Line 6 stompbox modelers, the DL4 boasts a simple and sturdy front panel design, with four footswitches for saving and recalling your sounds, and six knobs for selecting models and tweaking parameters, with distinct assignments for each knob depending on the delay model you’ve chosen. Paired with the optional EX-1 expression pedal, which lets you morph between two radically different settings for each of your sounds, the Line 6 DL4 is truly the ultimate delay pedal, making the history of echo and delay available to your creative future.
