NAMM 2009 (January 15th) DigiTech announces its all-new advanced delay pedal TimeBender at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. The DigiTech TimeBender delay features ten useful delay types including Analog, Digital, variable speed tape, moving head tape, dynamic (ducking) digital, dynamic (ducking) tape, dynamic (ducking) analog, time warp, reverse, envelope (chopping delay), along with a full 20 second looper.
Further surpassing the competition, the TimeBender allows the user to create custom repeat rhythms or patterns by simply strumming the guitar. Up to 6 taps can be set to quickly create delays that would normally take a rack of effects hours of programming. For instance; a 6 tap moving head tape delay can be created where the delay taps are not equally spaced but fall on beats set by the guitarist.
If Strum Pattern were not enough, DigiTech has included intelligent harmonies that can be added to the delays. Topping off the TimeBender is the ability to add intelligent harmonies to the delays. Choose from over 100 different voicing’s including octaves, 5ths, and 3rds to create delay effects that can only be created with a rack full of gear.
The TimeBender further adds full-time tone control, modulation, multiplier, tap tempo and repeat ping-pong patterns on all delay types in an easy to use stompbox user interface. Four memory settings also allow the user to save their favorite sounds.
The DigiTech TimeBender offers more than a full rack of delay effects topped with intelligent harmony and the capability to quickly set the repeat rhythms – never has a delay so advanced been this simple to use and all packed up in one pedal.
