If Line 6 were to make a new DL4, what would you like it to be? Assume the switches will be built like a tank.


What do you like about the DL4? What do you hate about it? What would you change if you could?


If DL4 is no longer your favorite delay pedal, what replaced it and why?


Do you use an expression pedal with DL4?


What's more important—one knob per function and four switches or fewer knobs and fewer switches so it takes up less space on your board?

The original DL4 has a lot going for it.  

I really haven't found another looper with as much live functionality.

Ive seen some people run 2, one for looping and one for delay.

I've also seen them modded with an additional switch to toggle between presets.

I would love to see this in an updated version. 


i would also love if the tap tempo switch could also function as an expression switch.

It would be similar to what digitech did with the ricochet.


Ive never seen anyone run this thing with batteries and the existing power supply was very cumbersome.

Please make this thing run off of the much more common 9v center negative supplies.

And ditch the battery compartment.  I love the 4 switch format but ditching the battery compartment would buy back some much needed pedalboard real estate.


As is, this is still a very special pedal to me. Please don't mess this up.
