TimeBender (discontinued)

Digital Delay

Not just one tone. Delays used to be one sound, analog or digital and then one fixed delay time. The TimeBender does just what the name implies -- bends time.  Featuring 10 delay types including Analog, Digital, Moving Head Tape, Fixed Head Tape, Dynamic (ducking delays), Reverse and Time Warp, the TimeBender goes where no delay has gone before. Further advancements include full-time tone control, modulation, multiplier, tap tempo and repeat ping-pong patterns on all delay types. For the first time you can get a Fixed Head Tape delay sound with tone rolled off, modulation and set to repeat in triplets. 

Go Beyond. The TimeBender goes beyond normal delays 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. 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.

New Tones. Topping off the TimeBender is the ability to add intelligent harmonies to the delays. Choose from over 100 different voicing's including octaves, 5ths, 3rds, etc. When the repeats are turned up layers of singing angelic tones are created to form never heard effects.

Power at your feet. The TimeBender offers more than a full rack of delay effects topped with intelligent harmony and the ability to quickly set the repeat rhythms -- never has a delay so advanced been this easy to use and packed in a pedal. The TimeBender is the delay that all other will be judged by.

Go Beyond.

TimeBender FAQs

How do I use the TimeBender Expression Pedal Input.
Connect a mono (tip/sleeve) passive volume pedal to the TimeBender expression input to morph between two different Delay parameter settings.

DELAY TYPES cannot be assigned to the expression pedal.

You can assign and store the following parameters to a passive volume pedal heel/toe position:



Setting the mix knob to Dry Off will turn the dry signal off for both heel and toe pedal positions.
How do I FACTORY RESET the TimeBender
Press and hold the Store button for three seconds. All the Memory Location LEDs flash and the display reads FAC.

Press and hold the Store button for three seconds again to perform the factory reset, or press the left footswitch or the Multiplier button to cancel.
