VOX Announces the New DelayLab Delay Pedal

DelayLab combines a wide array of modeled delay effects with multi-mode stereo looping and complete expressive control of all the delay parameters.

Anaheim, CA (January 26, 2012) -- VOX Amplification announces the new DelayLab Delay Pedal. Housed in a rugged diecast chassis, the DelayLab combines a wide array of modeled delay effects with multi-mode stereo looping and complete expressive control of all the delay parameters.

Set up for intuitive ease of use, the DelayLab parameters are controlled by five vintage-style knobs. Four footswitches provide access to the presets, and any function can be assigned to an optional expression pedal (such as the Korg EXP-2).

All totaled, there are 30 types of delay effects modeled in the DelayLab, including echoes, analog, tape, reverse, and ambient delays. From the distinctive warmth of vintage tape echoes and the unique tonal shifts caused by -Bucket Brigade Devices, to the lo-fi sound of early digital devices, the DelayLab delivers accurate models from a carefully selected set of historically significant delay units. It also contains numerous original and up-to-date delay effects. Dual Delay makes effective use of two independent delay times; Distortion Delay adds distortion to only the delayed sound; Reverse Delay can adjust the mix ratio between forward and reverse; Space Delay applies a string-like tonal effect to deepen the cascading delays.

The DelayLab also provides extensive looper capabilities, offering 28 seconds of memory. Three types of delay can be used simultaneously with the looper, and the looper can be set to attenuate the volume of the looped phrases with each overdub so that the latest phrase will stand out in the mix. In addition, the L/R delay times can be set independently for more creative applications.

Stereo ins and outs, 24-bit converters, and a sampling rate of 48 kHz provide optimal fidelity for recording or stage use. VOX has introduced their innovative Seamless Bypass and Seamless Program Change features to ensure a smooth transition in sound when bypassing the unit or switching between the 30 editable effect programs; the Kill Dry feature completely mutes the direct sound.

Power is provided by six AA batteries; an optional AC adapter is available.

The DelayLab Delay Pedal will be available May 2012 for $350.00

The accomplished guitarist and teacher’s new record, like her lifestyle, is taut and exciting—no more, and certainly no less, than is needed.

Molly Miller, a self-described “high-energy person,” is fully charged by the crack of dawn. When Ischeduled our interview, she opted for the very first slot available—8:30 a.m.—just before her 10 a.m. tennis match!

Donner andThird Man Hardware’s $99, three-in-one analog distortion, phaser, and delay honors Jack White’s budget gear roots.

Compact. Light. Fun. Dirt cheap. Many cool sounds that make this pedal a viable option for traveling pros.

Phaser level control not much use below 1 o’clock. Repeats are bright for an analog delay. Greater range of low-gain sounds would be nice.

$99

A huge part of the early White Stripes mystique, sound, ethos, and identity was tied to guitars and amps that, at the time, you could luck into for cheap at a garage sale. These days, it’s harder to score a Crestwood Astral II, or Silvertone Twin Twelve with a part-time job in the ice cream shop. Back in the late ’90s, though, they were a source of raw, nasty sounds for less than a new, more generic guitar or amp.
