To pro­vide quick ac­cess to a va­ri­ety of de­lay con­fig­u­ra­tions Roland’s RE-201 in­cludes a 12 mode se­lec­tor, and this is repli­cated on the T-RackS ver­sion. The first four modes ac­ti­vate only the de­lay heads (the spring re­verb is by­passed) with modes 1 to 3 each ac­ti­vat­ing a spe­cific head and mode 4 a com­bi­na­tion of heads 2 and 3. Modes 5 to 11 ac­ti­vate com­bi­na­tions of spe­cific de­lay heads and spring re­verb, and in mode 11 all three de­lay heads and the re­verb are ac­tive. Mode 12 is just the re­verb. If this all sounds a lit­tle bit con­fus­ing, LEDs next to the De­lay Pans pro­vide you with a vis­ual in­di­ca­tion of which of the heads are ac­tive. If you re­ally need to check what’s hap­pen­ing there’s a de­tailed ta­ble in the man­ual. Repli­cat­ing the de­lay time lim­i­ta­tions of the orig­i­nal hard­ware means pick­ing a mode that works best. So, Mode 5 is great for a re­verby slap back de­lay, while Mode 4 is bet­ter for sim­ple panned dou­ble de­lay.
