I’ve been seeing this pedal on a few Pedal Line Friday submissions, and I wanted to talk about this today. Everyone knows that Electro Harmonix Memory Man is a sweet pedal. But what’s the deal with the Electro-Harmonix XO Stereo Memory Man w/Hazarai? Interesting that “Hazarai” translates to “all the good stuff”. So, it’s packed with some awesome-ness.
Here is the official description of features:
Electro-Harmonix’ Stereo Memory Man Delay pedal is a multi-tap delay, it’s an echo, it’s a reverse echo, it’s a performance looper with tap tempo, and it’s programmable… it’s got all the Hazarai! Designed for the performing musician, the new Stereo Memory Man pedal is destined to be one of the most creative instruments on your pedalboard.
The Hazarai knob is a rotary encoder that allows the user to scroll through the 8 different Hazarai modes. The following is a list of the Hazarai modes that the Hazarai knob scrolls through:
3 Sec Echo
1 Sec Echo
300 mS Echo w/ Modulation
3 Sec Multi-Tap Echo
1 Sec Multi-Tap Echo
1 Sec Multi-Tap Echo w/ Reverse
3 Sec Reverse Echo
The Hazarai knob is also a push button. Push and release the Hazarai knob to load your preset for the presently selected mode. Push and hold to save your preset into the presently selected Hazarai mode.
Now.. to really put it in perspective, we need a demo, and of course EHX has a very thorough one (andwith some serious head nods):
