Dotted 8th Settings?

Recommended Posts

I know that one way to get this is using a 1/4 delay into a .1/8th delay, but can't find a good setting for feedback and mix for this...

Does anyone know good settings that work well???

On the delay that you have set to the dotted 1/8th, you'd want a relatively high mix and low feedback (I'm assuming you're after something like the classic Edge-like dotted eight sound). By relatively high for the mix, I mean around 55-60%. You essentially want the repeats almost the same volume as the dry signal. You don't want the repeats to hang along for long, though, so you probably don't want the feedback more than 30%. I like the digital delay with modulation for this delay.

 

For the quarter note delay, you'd want it almost the opposite - low mix and higher feedback. I'd say try the mix at 30% to start with. Than the feedback you can adjust to taste.

Not directly using Tap Tempo. You can set it manually using bpms and milliseconds by doing the math. For instance, consider setting an 1/8 note at 120 bpm. This defines a quarter-note (a 'beat') to be a half-second (500ms). So an eighth note at that tempo is 250ms. And a dotted eight would be 375ms (if I remember my theory correctly!)

 

Change to a different tempo and you need to recalculate.

I see. I'll have to play with it to figure it out then. Btw, I saw a delay calculator online too. Must be the same concept with the one you mentioned.

 

Thanks, Silverhead. Really helpful as always!

To get a galloping delay effect I use digital delay dotted 8th into analog echo quarter note right before the amp. I use feedback at 10 for both delays (for a single repeat), dotted 8th mix at 70 and quarter note mix at 50. Bass and treble at 50.

The manual says you can select dotted eighth for the HD500x, but I can't seem to get it through knob twiddling.  Do I need to hook it up to the PC to get this?
