A studio effects processor dedicated solely to providing digital delay is a rare thing in this age of all‑singing, all‑dancing multi‑effects units. Paul White tries out TC Electronic's affordable D•Two.
Back in the early '80s, there were lots of dedicated delay/echo boxes to choose from, but most of these disappeared when programmable multi‑effects units came onto the scene. Some musicians complained that they still needed a dedicated echo box with simple, quickly accessible controls — but as it was virtually as cheap to build a multi‑effects box as a delay‑only unit, these demands were largely ignored. There were exceptions, such as the high‑end TC2290 (which is still in production today), but in the main, people learned to make do with what they were given.
Now, however, TC clearly think the time is right to build a dedicated delay unit more appropriate to the needs of today's marketplace without having to charge the premium price of their 2290, and what they have come up with is an interesting blend of established ideas and innovation.
