If you're looking for a delay pedal but not sure if you want a warm analog delay or a modern digital delay, this might be the pedal for you. The regular digital delay sounds are amazing, but what really impressed me was the warmth of the modeled analog delay sounds, including a recreation of the coveted Deluxe Memory Man delay. Plus, you get some really neat "trick" delays, like a really, really excellent reverse delay, octave shifting delay, delay with a plate reverb added to it, shimmering octave effects, and a neat but difficult-to-figure-out sample-and-hold delay. And the looper, while a little touchy to time the start and end of loops, is a really neat feature. Probably not up to par with a TC Electronic Ditto as far as sound quality or user-friendliness goes, but still a wonderful feature to have. Some tricks I've learned include setting the delay time and feedback to zero on the reverb delay setting, making the pedal actually work as a pretty decent-sounding plate reverb pedal. The build quality is just as you'd expect of EHX, with its all-metal exterior and the soft sort of plastic knobs and switches. The footswitch is a bit of a "soft touch" mechanism so you don't get that satisfying "click" when you activate it, and that's probably my only build quality issue, feels like it's too easy to activate/deactivate. The only feature I'd like to see added is the ability to use other delays while playing back loops. Other than that, this delay is possibly one of the best values I've seen of any delay pedal on the market. Even though this is a digital multi-effect delay pedal, none of the delays sound bad or "fake" at all. Even the emulations of the analog and tape delays sound decently warm and lush. And the fact that on top of these really good sounding delays, you also get some really neat trick delays and a minute-long looper, makes this an incredible value. This pedal essentially takes the job of many pedals, and you could pay much more for worse tone.

The Canyon serves as the best valued delay sample pack on the market. Each setting provides a distinctly different texture to shape a more atmospheric sound. The looper function is easy to use, although the sound card gets pretty overloaded sounding after one or two overdubs. Best for someone who like to dabble in at home looping, but not needing gigable quality. My favourite setting is "Shimmer" in conjunction with other delay or reverb effects to create etherial and serene textures.
