Great - Reviews Line 6 DL4

So there are two inputs and two outputs, one for an expression pedal (which I have not yet tested, looking for a reasonably priced) .It is the digital jack (not Daniels) no midi.
Four switches: three to save your favorite settings, a fourth for the tap tempo.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, turn the knobs test sounds.
That said, we must look for a moment on the documentary to understand the role of Tweez and tweak depending on the type of delay that you use.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are quite successful, the simulations also.
Can reproduce a good dirty echo by adjusting the treble and bass, "usury" bands; slapbacks as the delays are present very convincing.
There is a bypass mode that cuts the delay if you wish when you disengage the effect.
There are only echo the sweep I use less and loop sampler mode.
on the other hand, no digital display to adjust the tempo on a delay, unlike the boss DD20 home for example.
The tap tempo is super convenient direct access, the boss is less accessible. (Must play tap).
3 memory is just a little bit; but adding an expression pedal you can double down (never tried it but it is explained in the manual).

OVERALL OPINION

This effect has long intrigued me; ok this is a delay and there are multitude.
I have a boy and a memory DD20 boss.
The DD20 and DL4 in my opinion are very different and not one is "better" than the other.
The DD20 is a delay much cleaner and certainly more surgical and cold but very effective, the DL4 to create more atmosphere, in that it is more than just delay and brings warmth to the sound.
It looks sturdy, yet expensive secondhand (though I got mine for cheap even if it went to war) and despite his age he is still a reference when you know the delay you want.
Most: the sound palettes available
tap tempo directly accessible
Sound heat

Cons: 3 savable presets (it's said that?) (excluding pedal expression)
bitonios the plastic look fragile

I do not regret my purchase carefully considered.
