Not the digital delay you're used to.
Sure it does basic delay sounds, and it sounds better than anything else out there while doing them. But if all you want is a simple delay pedal, the Empress Superdelay isn't for you. The Empress Superdelay is for musicians who want to be inspired by their pedals, not limited by them.
The Signal to Noise ratio is around 105dB. Eight modes including normal, tap, autoset (delay time is set by tempo played), reverse, rhythm mode (multitap), tape mode, misc (dynamic, gate), and 11 second looper give you a huge variety of sounds and options. The expression pedal input allows you to control either mix or feedback with your foot. The high pass filter is good for electronic music while low pass is sweet for darker analog delay type sounds. The Fast/Slow Modulation creates another layer of texture or craziness depending on your taste. Settings can be saved to 8 presets. With three stompswitches, accessing the presets is easy. Many of the modes use tap tempo, and the ratio selection makes fast in-time delay times easy. Plus the Empress Superdelay employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged
