12 delay machines with dedicated controls and 200 presets for a wide range of sounds

Each delay type in the Strymon TimeLine is fully independent and unique. Delays modeled after analog bucket brigade pedals and tape echo machines, along with unique filtered synth-y delays and bit-crushed transistor delays, provide a comprehensive experience that will make tone tweakers smile. But if you're the type of player who wants to dive in, find a sound, and roll with it, the TimeLine's 200 factory presets cover a wide range of ground from blues to metal to experimental.

30-second looper lets you jam over parts or experiment with delays

The TimeLine's stereo looper is a powerful stage performance tool. It's also a handy creative tool for workshopping melodies, harmonies, and delay tones. Record a part up to 30 seconds in length, loop it, then play over top of it. The TimeLine's looper lets you select its place in the signal chain, either before or after delay effects.

Strymon or Echolution?

There are 26 positive reviews about this pedal so I won't reiterate anything. I compared the TimeLine with my friend's Pigtronix Echolution, which is another cool pedal in the same price range. Worth checking both out. The echolution has some unique effects. But the Strymon takes the cake for me because it is just so much fun and easy to use. The preset button and banks are critical. Im accumulating strymon pedals and they are all great thus far. All are good on synths, keyboards, and for FX bussing.

Awesome Delay

So, I own a TC Nova Delay and I love it. I travel with my wife and am able to use up to 9 presets for our set lists, however, I'm only able to use up to 9 presets; so I spend a lot of time tweaking and resetting presets. It was time. I went ahead and purchased the timeline. And WHOA. I didn't realize my tone could get better, but it really got better. I mean, my tone sounded crystal clear and better than it did running thru the Nova Delay. The delay machines all sound amazing. If you're on the fence, do not hesitate to get it. There are a few things you'll need to know, but they are not show stoppers. First, you'll need an aux switch because switching banks is extremely complicated without the switch. Also, you'll need to purchase an additional midi to usb cable to get full use out of the library software. But don't fret or delay. It's well worth it. Get it!!!!

This pedal is incredible. I'm amazed by how warm it sounds given that it's a digital delay. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Worth it?

If you want simple, there are probably better choices than the Strymon TimeLine. Though the factory presets do afford you some great delay options AND the opportunity to wade slowly into the deep end of all that this pedal has to offer. If you love a learning curve - the TimeLine is pure romance. I'm able to get a wide range of incredible delay effects, from subtle to deep luscious stereo magic. You're going to need space on your pedalboard and plenty of power (300ma needed). Worth it? Yes. Definitely.

Amazing Delay

This is a truly incredible delay pedal. Every function you could ever dream of is in this pedal, and the sound quality is second to none. The features expand even more if you add MIDI or an expression switch. If you play in a live setting, the Timeline makes it a breeze to quickly bank through presets. With the SPL software (available from Strymon's website) and a simple MIDI/USB cable, you can save all your presets to your computer, rearrange the order of banks and presets, and load saved presets from your computer. I can program my entire set-list in a matter of seconds! The delay machines are fantastic and are tweak-able beyond what any normal person would ever need, but yet are simple to use. The tape may be the best sounding delay I've ever heard. The low-fi gives you grit without trash (unless you want it), the analog can modulate as well as sacred memory men, and the dual is extremely tweak-able and has the power of two 2290 rack units. The digital engine alone would be enough to cover 99% of all delay sounds you could ever want, thanks to the filter knob. The repeat dynamics function allows you to use high repeats and mix and the same time, but it quiets your repeats after the first few so you still get the bed of sound and the immediate noticeable echo. If you're looking for textures, swells, or unique sounds, the reverse, ice, smear are all incredible. I could sit and play with them for days. The stereo function works very well for creating space, and the internal parameters are simple once you learn the basics. Read the manual if you really want to get crazy with it. Bottom line: BUY THIS. It's expensive, but you'll likely never have to buy another delay for your entire life.
