Korg SDD-3000 Dig­i­tal De­lay £149

Future Music - - ROUNDUP -

If ever proof were re­quired that not all de­lay ef­fects are born equal, the SDD-3000 is ex­hibit A. Re­leased in 1982, Korg’s rack-mounted echo unit fell into the hands of U2’s Edge and the rest is rock/pop his­tory. How­ever, there’s plenty here if you’re more of a synth-smith than an ax­ewielder. Each mod­ule is clearly la­belled, with tem­posync’d or mil­lisec­ond-based de­lays flanked firstly by a fre­quency-se­lectable Feed­back knob, which can pro­vide ev­ery­thing from single sub­tle echoes to multi-tapped lay­ers. The Mod­u­la­tion sec­tion in­tro­duces trans­for­ma­tive ef­fects in a va­ri­ety of ways (in­clud­ing LFOs, En­ve­lope and Ran­dom trig­gers) to pro­duce de­lay, flang­ing, phas­ing and cho­rus treat­ments. A flex­i­ble, warm-sound­ing echo unit which beau­ti­fully echoes the 13-bit colour of the original.
