Best Ever Analogue Delay? [Boss DM-101, Carbon Copy, Suhr Discovery plus DD-200 & TimeLine]

Published 30 Jun 2023

Boss's analogue mega machine has changed the game. But do you want to play?

Welcome to the show! “Harumph!”, we hear you cry. “Another mega delay, really?!” Well, this one is genuinely different, using eight BBD chips to create a true stereo, programmable, MIDI-enabled ANALOGUE delay. This hasn’t been done before with this feature set, in this format.
Now, there are plenty of demos of the DM-101 already out there on the ‘Toob, but we’re hoping to add some more useful questions to the mix. Hopefully those questions will, ahem, echo the main questions that you may have…

Please enjoy the show.
