Mono digital delay with four user memories each accessed by it's own front panel button. Memory stores the delay time plus the status of four extra buttons. The buttons are for instantly doubling the delay time, reversing the delay phase, switching in modulation and turning on the feedback. Front panel knobs for input level, feedback, delay output level, modulation rate and modulation depth. Delay time altered by increment/decrement buttons, with a maximum delay time of 1125ms.

Good Points
A bit long in the tooth now but still a useful tool if you can find one in good working order. Don't know whether it's 8 or 12 bit but it does sound good.Good hands-on front panel controls let you dial in sounds quickly and theres a rear panel footswitch socket called 'Playmate'for tap tempo control. Modulation knobs controlling the LFO make setting up standard doubling, chorus and flanging dead easy but they are also capable of really wobbly seasick sounds - be warned.
Bad Points
Front panel buttons can get a bit iffy with age
