unrealistically optimistic question new
      #959162 - 15/12/11 03:18 PM
Hi,

Does anyone know of a 19" rack-mounted analog delay with the delay time controllable by a CV input?

Cheers,
Tom

Multivox MXD-5 maybe? Can't find a manual.

19" analogue racks discussed in the other place, you would have to research each one to find out about the CV ability.

19" Analogue delay discussion

The Moogerfooger is worth looking at as they can be rackmounted. Two would be very nice (and pricey!)

Well MIDI would be even better but I already know the answer to that is no!

I just want an analog delay and want to be able to change the delay time on the fly without fiddling with the knobs

The Moog has been discontinued for a while, and fetches c. £600 used. One would be an indulgence, two mental.

Does it have to be analogue? By which I presume you mean BBD. The EHX Deluxe Memory Man gives over 1s of delay time and can be controled with a cv or expression pedal. In fact, for cheap, the Memory Boy and DMB can also be controlled externally. Korg, Boss, Ibanez and Yamaha all made analogue rack delays, but you might be limited to the delay time and controls.

If it has to be rack but you don't mind a good lo-fi digital unit, try the Digitech RDS 1900. It's 8 bit, gives almost 2s of max delay time and has various control jacks, including CV in. I have two. They're cheap and good. Also check out the 1/2 rack Boss RDD-10 or 20 - the Microrack range have modulation i/o jacks and can be hooked together or swept via a CV.

Also fun is the Strymon El Capistan. I've not tried any Eventide but they get good reviews. Analogue delay is over-rated, IMO, but if you know you want a particular sound, there aren't very many rack analogues that have total external control. I suppose you could rackmount almost anything if you strap it to a shelf, but Roland also made a rack version of one of their tape echo units - RE-555 I think. Expect to pay plenty, if you can find one.

Wow, thanks for all the replies!

Yeah I know the moogerfoogers can be rackmounted but buying multiple moogerfoogers is a little extravagant for me (though I do rather like the sound of the Midi Murf)

Likewise the SRE-555 would be lovely but yeah, just too much money (also it looks enormous - rack mounted moogers isn't a great use of space either)

I think I've found something that meets all my criteria though - Doepfer A-188-1 BBD Eurorack module. I've got three units of space available that I can install some Z-rails in, so that should be cool. Only thing is, I'll then of course have to fill the rest of the eurorack... such a shame... I've just discovered postmodular.co.uk, so that will be fun!

I forgot about Eurorack... if you get into that, check out the Muffwiggler forum. When I was planning a first system I got plenty of suggestions and advice there.
