Description & Specs

The DL4TM Delay Modeler has remained one of the most widely used delay pedals in the world for more than two decades—embraced by everyone from casual players to superstars. The DL4 was the first pedal to offer a broad selection of delay models based on vintage tape echo devices such as the Maestro® EP-1 Echoplex and the Roland® RE-101 Space Echo, classic analog delay stompboxes such as the Electro-Harmonix® Deluxe Memory Man, and even the Binson Echorec and studio staple TC Electronic® 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay. These were complemented by several Line 6 originals, including the exceptional Reverse delay—and the DL4 also boasted a highly intuitive "14 Second Loop Sampler" that is still considered one of most engaging loopers ever made. 
 
The DL4 MkII honors that legacy by including every one of those original sounds and features, and retaining the same knob and footswitch layout, so there's no need for DL4 users to learn any new moves—but the DL4 MkII also introduces many new sounds and features that bring it fully into the 21st century. The 15 MkII delays were drawn from our HX® family of amp and effects processors and include Line 6 originals such as Harmony Delay, Pitch Echo, Euclidian Delay, Glitch Delay and ADT tape delay, as well as 4-Switch and 1-Switch looper types with up to 240 seconds of record time, expandable to several hours using an optional microSD card.
 
The DL4 MkII also features an XLR dynamic microphone input for vocal processing and looping; MIDI capabilities such as real time parameter control and preset selection (up to 128) via its MIDI In and Out/Thru DIN connectors; four heavy duty footswitches; and switchable true, buffered, or DSP bypass. There's also a jack for connecting an optional expression pedal (automatically assigned to the Delay Time, Repeat, Tweak, Tweez, or Mix controls) or two assignable external footswitches.
 
Finally, although the DL4 MkII does everything that the original DL4 does (other than run on batteries), plus so much more, it is considerably smaller and lighter, making it an even more appealing choice for modern musicians of all types.
 
30 WAYS TO DELAY
Fans of the original DL4 delay pedal will find all of their favorite sounds exactly where they expect them to be, with the same Tweak and Tweez control parameter assignments they've become accustomed to. The 15 new MkII delays were drawn from the HX family of amp and effects processors, and include both more recent versions of classic effects and cutting-edge Line 6 originals such as the super-vibey Glitch Delay.
 
TWO WAYS TO LOOP
The DL4 MkII features a simple 1-Switch looper in addition to a classic 4-Switch looper, both of which provide up to 240 seconds of recording time. By inserting an optional microSD card into the slot on the rear of the pedal, recording time may be extended up to several hours and a loop may be stored across power cycles. The loopers operate in either mono or stereo, and may be positioned in the signal chain before or after other effects.
 
MICROPHONE INPUT
It's no secret that the DL4 has been used for processing and looping by lots of people besides guitarists, including vocalists and others who capture their performance with a microphone. Now, dynamic microphones can be plugged directly into the pedal's XLR Mic input, eliminating the need for converter cables, mixers, or other external devices. This feature also makes the DL4 MkII a handy tool for sound designers and other sonic adventurers.
 
MIDI MAGIC
Onboard MIDI In and Out/Thru DIN connectors enable the DL4 MkII to receive continuous controller, program change, and other MIDI messages from external sources such as MIDI controllers, thus allowing parameters to be modified dynamically and presets to be selected remotely. The DL4 MkII provides access to three presets using the A, B, and C footswitches, or six if the Tap switch is set to toggle between two banks of presets (A,B, C and D, E, F). But the DL4 MkII can store up to 128 presets, selectable via MIDI.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
