Here is a video by Premiere Guitar where the Electro-Harmonix booth at NAMM 2012 showed off their Analogizer and Deluxe Memory Man 550-TT. I’ve been very interested in the Analogizer and wanted to hear more about it. It seems like a great little box to ‘darken’ up the signal, especially on trailing delays, etc. I thought it was cool that it was a signal boost as well (similar to LPB1 – Linear Power Boost) giving it up to 26dB of signal gain.
I have a T-Rex Replica delay and I like how you can set it to be ‘dark’. I also have a Boss DD-3 which is very digital and a pedal like this could come in handy for a DD-3 or DD-7 to generate more of an analog feel.
The Deluxe Memory Man is similar to the standard Deluxe Memory Man with tap tempo, but has shorter maximum delay (550ms) since those chips are easier to come by. I particularly liked the demo with the POG2 in the effects loop of the pedal to only affect the wet signal with the POG. Very cool.
