The Empress SuperDelay pedal is not your regular digital delay pedal. The Empress SuperDelay pedal was created for musicians who want to be inspired by their pedals, not limited by them. Of course it will do basic delay sounds, and sound better than most doing it. Premier Guitar magazine agrees, which is why they awarded it a Premier Gear Award. The Empress SuperDelay is one of the most versatile delay pedals on the market, every time you turn it and tweak it you will discover a new delay sound, but don't worry, your favourite sounds will not be lost. You can save up to 8 presets, which can all be instantly recalled using the 3 foot switches. Although it is a digital pedal, it is incredibly transparent. The benefit of its digital origins is clear in its functionality, you have 8 delay modes, Tap Tempo, Expression Pedal Input and true bypass switching.
Killer Sound Quality - The Signal to Noise ratio is around 105dB.
2.8 Seconds of Delay Time - For your extra long delays.
8 modes - normal, tap, autoset (delay time is set by tempo played), reverse, rhythm mode (multitap), tape mode, misc (dynamic, gate), and 12 second looper.
Expression Pedal Input - allows you to control either mix or feedback with your foot.
High Pass/Low Pass Filter - high pass is good for electronic music, low pass is sweet for darker analog delay type sounds.
Fast/Slow Modulation - slow adds extra texture, fast is a little crazy.
8 Presets - Settings can be saved to 8 presets. With three stompswitches, accessing the presets is easy.
Tap Tempo with Ratios - many of the modes use tap tempo, and the ratio selection makes fast in-time delay times easy.
True Bypass - The Empress Superdelay employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.
Small Size - The enclosure measures approximately 5.7" by 3.75" by 1.75", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
The Empress Superdelay does not run off of batteries. It comes with a power supply. The Empress Superdelay requires 300mA, positive tip, 9 to 12 VDC. You can power the Empress Superdelay from outputs 5 or 6 of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+. You'll need to use the red barrel connector. You must set the corresponding DIP switch away from the NORMAL position. Also, since the Superdelay requires nearly 300mA, you should only use the other output for a much lower current pedal.
