Hey Raphael! Trails is when you click your delay pedal off, bypass it, but instead of the delay signal just cutting off it repeats and fades out naturally. It means that a pedal isn't true bypass, in that mode at least, but if done well it sounds great and is very musical rather than true bypass delay pedals where the repeats instantly stop when the pedal is bypassed.

I really love modulation on repeats.. I gotta put modulation in the box! I think it could be a cool option to have the modulation driven by the CV waveforms, that's one experimentation to do. I'll probably do a treble knob too... this delay will actually be set up a lot like the Cosmichorus so it's skeleton is basically ready. Buffer in, dry mix, pre-emph, compander, filter the highs, treble control, compander, de-emph, levels, wet mix, buffer out, Bob's your uncle.

Ok, I get it, trail is for smooth and musical transitions...great!!!
By modulation you meant chorus right? or something else?
I'm waiting badly for this pedal...

Modulation is altering the delay time of the repeats slightly so they have some movement to them. It's like chorus but more crude and really just meant to give the repeats some wiggle or warble to make them sound more interesting and dynamic.

Does this mean that it'll be able to go 100% wet?

Hahaha that gif is so hilarious and perfect!

That's a good question about 100% wet, I hadn't really pondered that yet... I'll try both ways, the standard level control for the repeats and a wet/dry mix setup and see what I like better, I'm not really sure just yet.

This is the only thing I would request for the new delay. The only thing I don't like about the sdd is the lack of being able to go more than 50/50. All other features are best left in your all knowing hands. Being able to have a slight volume boost when on would be nice too.

Yeah I agree, Ian, I think the wet/dry mix is best too.. most powerful. That plus a wet level control would max power, like the Cosmi.

So what kind of delay chips are you thinking about utilising for the new delay?

Good question.. I've got a couple ideas to try...

First, I'll try an all analog delay and see what kind of circuit I can get going with the V3205 chips. They're really the only viable analog BBD chip available now.. I've never tried one yet though and I didn't like the V3207 compared to the MN3007...

What I'd like to do even more though is get my hands on a decent resolution digital delay chip that can do very clean and pristine repeats of a reasonable length, at least a second. Then make it so that you can degrade that clean and pure delay and make it sound analog all the way to lo-fi with some kind of quality control knob.

I found a cool tutorial where a guy uses an ATmega32 to make a really simple delay processor.. I'm wondering if I can do something similar with high resolution AD/DA converters and maybe a chip or two of external memory.

Lots to think about with a new delay pedal and my hamster wheel is definitely turning...

Will it have an expand feature like the Endangered Audio AD4096?
