I'm evaluating the ND-1 Nova Delay right now...it's supposed to be a 2290 squeezed into a cute little stomp.
So far so good except for one place where TC has stumbled and fallen and lost its front teeth...
...The knobs where you set the parameters aren't touch-sensitive (saving money, pedal is $250) but they are set to resist accidental turning too much. There is no way to find out what the current setting is, and when you turn them a bit to "tweak" a setting (fancy that for an idea?) it only starts changing when you're about 12 clicks away from what the setting was! So just nudging a value is...IMPOSSIBLE.
You have to somehow remember what it was set for, and then turn it way past it and back. Gawd how dense.
Unless it's me missing something, or my unit sucks...
Anyway the only other problem I have with it is 2290 msec of delay is fairly paltry these days...that's a marketing thing to conjure the tc 2290 rackmount. Plus the color knob doesn't go dark enough...it goes from "digital" to "analog" to "tape" but my Ibanez AD-9 for instance would be way over in "murky" about 150 degrees further over.
Setting tempo via audio is cool, and if it weren't for the UI tragedy
of the knob mess, I'd enjoy this pedal.
