Cool Delay

Top Notch delay from Digitech. It has exactly what you need(analog, tape delay, LoFi, and Reverse)and it allows you to tweak the settings in more depth than you've ever had with other delay. I have a TC Electronics Flashback delay too and I bought this to add another 'flavor' to my effects. Great choice. It takes solos and rhythms to another level.

Analog Sound, Digital Features

Tried two different pedals, one analog (with too low a max delay time) and one digital (with too much going on and a built-in looper that didn't let you use the delay simultaneously). After years of avoiding Digitech for their ugly enclosures and overly-processed sounds, decided to try the Obscura. Wow. Sounds amazing paired with my WH fuzz. Very heavy pedal for its size, built solid. The 4 modes are nice, but the analog is all I need. The tape echo sounds great too, and the other two have some fun possibilities. And one great feature: the case. Reminds me of the Vesalius' Fabrica. Very cool.

Plenty of real tape and analog mojo here

This is the most unique sounding delay I own and definitely in the top for sound quality, I also own the Carbon copy, echo puss, supa puss, vapor trail, tc triple flashback, boss dd-500, source audio nemesis, and this little gem the Obscura by digitech! For tape sounds this is my go to delay, for analog this is my go to delay, and it's digital! Extremely responsive when tweaking the tone knob ... the defrade knob functions almost as modulation but in conjuction with the tone knob you get different reactions... the tone knob is almost like a filter, the more you cut the lows the room feels colder, like concrete... and the echoes react as such... more pronounce, quicker attack and percussive... turn it down and tt softer swell like repeats that don't last as long or fade into a natral ambient drone ...time and feedback are very responsive and give you that real analog rewind sound and feel... not to mention you can access tap tempo and more subdivisions with a simple click and hold of the button... for $ this is a winner... I also own the polara reverb and they both come with velcro and a plastic knob lock so once you leave your settings you can lock them so they don't accidentally move... overall they feel very sturdy, heavy and I like the graphics... very good step up in quality by Digitech, definitely boutique quality in built extremely high end in sound wuality and the quality of the algofithms... actually very inpressive how they respond with the different settings... play around with the vintage analog... and get lost for a while

Altered review

Comparing the Obscura to my Hardwire Delay Pedal I would say that while the Hardwire is very tight, accurate and pristine it's like giving it a fresh beer buzz that relaxes it and pumps some confidence into it while totally keeping its musical integrity intact. And it does tight and accurate also plus they've added a degrade control. There's certainly something to be said about controlling your degradation! Digitech is certainly cranking out some nice technology. I'll be hard pressed to ever let go of this thing.

How do they get all that awesome in one pedal?

The Obscura is an absolute beast! The different types of sounds and effects you can get from this one pedal is amazing. Not sure how they did it, but they definitely got it right. Huge thumbs up to DigiTech on this one!
