Something to sample/hold & mangle delays, in real time? Reverb/Delay Processors (HW)

Something to sample/hold & mangle delays, in real time?

Hi. I've really been inspired by the latest neil young 'le noise' album and lanois black dub album. I'd like to try to borrow his sampling technique. He uses from what I gather the old lexicon prime time 93's, which can sample & hold, and then change the delay time which mangles the samples in really cool ways.

since those 93's are hard to find in working condition, are there any other options out there, either hardware or plugin wise? I've always been a delay junkie, and this seems like a way to take 'playing' delay to a whole new level.

any ideas?


FYI, here's a good example of DL in action on the prime time

Not so much on the mangle part but the EH Freeze pedal looks pretty nifty.

The PSP 42 & 85 plugins can do some cool mangling.

Actually, most of the first generation of digital delays will do sample and hold and allow you to mangle things. Many of them are pretty cheap (like the Boss DD200 that's available down the road here for $75 IIRC).

The "Hold" button on old digital delays just puts it into an infinite repeat. You can do that with any delay plugin by automating the feedback up to 100%. I think where "mangling" comes into play more is with filtering and delay time modulation.

Perhaps something like a Kaoss Pad?
