The Strymon TimeLine’s lush and inspiring delays and simple control layout may make you want to leave your valuable and vintage pedals at home. The TimeLine features 12 delay machines with dedicated hardware controls for real-time tweaking, along with 200 factory presets for instant inspiration. Dial in a delay you like, edit it, then save and name it. Filter and Grit knobs let you control the shape and distortion artifacts of repeats for sounds that range from studio clean to vintage analog to early digital. The TimeLine’s onboard stereo looper records up to 30 seconds of audio for you to jam over for live performances or use to experiment with new delay effects. 12 delay machines with dedicated controls and 200 presets for a wide range of sounds
Each delay type in the Strymon TimeLine is fully independent and unique. Delays modeled after analog bucket brigade pedals and tape echo machines, along with unique filtered synth-y delays and bit-crushed transistor delays, provide a comprehensive experience that will make tone tweakers smile. But if you’re the type of player who wants to dive in, find a sound, and roll with it, the TimeLine’s 200 factory presets cover a wide range of ground from blues to metal to experimental.
30-second looper lets you jam over parts or experiment with delays
The TimeLine’s stereo looper is a powerful stage performance tool. It’s also a handy creative tool for workshopping melodies, harmonies, and delay tones. Record a part up to 30 seconds in length, loop it, then play over top of it. The TimeLine’s looper lets you select its place in the signal chain, either before or after delay effects.
