Strymon Timeline Live Vocal Delay
Hey All,

Thinking of buying a Strymon Timeline being sold on C-List locally, relatively cheap (sub $380, no power cable) to use in my live FOH/mixing rig (I don't play guitar, just some bass).

I've only heard good things about these units, and I like the idea of having all parameters available on-hand since I'm usually at the mercy of whatever mixer I'm using that night, switching between pages as needed.

Any thoughts on using this as a vocal delay, live? Sometimes I like to mess with settings live if I think it will compliment what's happening onstage (trippy delays, super long decays, infinite feedback %, etc).

Don't know about the timeline, but I've been using the strymon dig for foh duties for 2 years now. The tap tempo function behaviour's kind of inconsistent. Also, I find it hard to switch between the secondary functions of the pedal inbetween songs due to the lack of a clear interface. Mistakes are easily made in the heat of battle. So all in all it's not optimal imo. Sounds great though!

That's part of my deciding factor. Strymon stuff sounds great, a lot better than some of the lower end consoles I end up having to use. I'm hoping since the Timeline has a larger footprint, there's less menu navigating in the clutch, so to speak.
