    Hey just looking for some other high end delay options. Been looking at the timeline so far but was wondering what else was out there.

    Rack or pedal?

    I love my GSharp and GMajor, and really liked the Visual Sound H2O pedal I had a while back.

    Best delays I've ever heard were on my old G-Force and then the Axe FX. My current POD HD500 does a nice delay, but if I were going into the studio to record, I'd want a TC or Fractal unit, they're both top of the line.

    TC Electronic Nova Delay. Apart from the Eventide Timeline, it was the only pedal that got me properly, properly excited about a delay pedal. A lot of the others are a bit hit and miss, but the wealth of the Nova's options is absolutely fantastic.

    Aside from the usual nonsense, you can tap tempo using your guitar strums (more useful than you'd think), set for reverse and ping pong and so on, along with the very cool 'dynamic' delay, which ducks the delayed signal slightly while you are still playing, which means busy parts don't get mushy with delay, and when you stop playing it brings the delay back up somewhat.

    The options to set tempo by bpm or in ms is very useful (and the ability to convert from ms to bpm let my band set our tempo tracks perfectly for what we wanted it to sound like). Additionally you can set patches to either accept a global tempo, or have a specific one for particular songs. All very cool features, and can just plug in and go. It's stupidly versatile.

    Mine is the old one; TC brought out the 'Red' version, think it is called the Nova Delay II. Supposedly even better...

    tl;dr: Nova Delay. The only way.
