SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, DigiTech®, a leading manufacturer of guitar, bass, and vocal processors, and a Harman International company (NYSE-HAR), will announce its new advanced TimeBender delay at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show. The TimeBender delay features ten delay types including Digital, Analog, along with Fixed Head and Moving Head Tape delays along with a 20 second looper.
Going beyond delay pedals as they are known, the TimeBender allows the player to create custom repeat rhythms or patterns on the fly by simply strumming the guitar. Up to 6 taps can be set to quickly create delays that would normally take a rack of effects and hours of programming. If Strum Pattern were not enough, DigiTech has included intelligent harmonies that can be added 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.
