Information:

Over the years, MI Effects has been known for great overdrive and distortion pedals and always have been asked “When will MI do a delay pedal?” There have been prototypes, and designs and ideas, but for the designs to come to fruition the pedal would have to retail for $1000, and no-one would pay that (would they?).

But as of late, there have been a lot of manufacturers using the PT2399 chip; a digital delay that emulates an analog or tape delay sound. The PT2399 is a great value bundle in one IC, however it does have its limitations and these are apparent if you have played the current pedals in the market. So instead of trying to force this chip to be the replacement for your Echoplex, I decided to embrace these limitations and release a delay pedal that doesn’t quite fit into any category – yes it can do those classic modulated delays sounds (and very, very well too) but can be pushed to do so much more, and in turn, hopefully inspire some new sounds and experimentation.

So here it is: the (as-of-yet unnamed) MI Effects Lo-Fi Delay. A lot of careful design has gone into what goes around the PT chip to give modulation like no other pedal. There is control over the filtering of the delay signal that really gives a new perspective with a flick of the switch, and also the input and output of the pedal carefully honed to give you the control of the best signal-to-noise ratio.

Specifications:

* TIME – delay time up to a max of 600ms.

* REPEATS – go from short, slapback to self-oscillation.

* The LO-PASS/HI-PASS switch also affects how quickly the pedal will self-oscillate.

* RATE and DEPTH – these control the LFO modulation on the repeats.

* SQUARE/TRIANGLE WAVE – this switch selects the waveform of the LFO
modulating the delay signal. Triangle wave at low rate and depth can
give you classic chorus sounds, whilst square wave can give choppy,
tremolo sounds, even pseudo pitch-shifting effects.

* LO/HI-PASS MODE – this switch controls the filtering of the delay
line. The LO-PASS mode gives dark, analog repeats while the HI-PASS
gives clarity to the top-end for shimmering modulation and
self-oscillation. Using the LO-PASS mode “smears” the repeats together
whilst the HI-PASS mode gives more defined repeats. The production will
probably have a 3 position switch for three levels of filtering

* TRAILS ON/OFF – the trails switch allows the control of the trails continuing or cutting off once the pedal is turned off.

* LEVEL – this controls the LEVEL of wet, delay signal whilst having the dry signal constant.
