I love nearly everything about the new Suhr Discovery Analog BBD Delay. It sounds fantastic, and does that smart Chase Bliss Audio thing of Analog Heart with a Digital Control Layer. You can scroll through 127 onboard Presets (via footswitches also) - and through smart filtering and Refine Up/Down controls you can vastly extend the delay time - without experiencing noisy artefacts.
Controls - Preset Select/Edit, Fine Tune Down/Up, Time (ms/BPM), Division : Dotted Eighth/Eighth/Triplet/Quarter/Sixteenth, Hold for BPM, Mix, Time (40ms-1100ms), Regen, Lo Cut, Hit Cut, Speed, Waveform Button : Triangle/Sine/Square, Depth, Bypass Footswitch, Tap-Tempo Footswitch / Hold for Presets.
It's a hugely impressive Analog Delay all-round, and very usable. Ease of use here is a major factor. I was really excited when I first clocked this, but my enthusiasm was somewhat marred when I realised it was Mono output only.
The second half of my pedal-chain is entirely stereo - and in order to replace my mainstay Strymon Volante I obviously need that replacement to have stereo output. So despite hitting pretty much every preference for a delay, it turns out that the Discovery is not quite suitable enough for me! I will have to wait for John Suhr to release the enhanced stereo output V2 version - whenever that might happen.
The Discovery Delay has a superb Form Factor with really intuitive controls - and pretty much everything it does is spot-on - all it needs is a stereo output to get full marks!
I know a lot of my readers were excited about this one - but like me - their enthusiasm may be marred by the mono only output - what do all of you think? Anyone getting one of these?
