Yes, good point, you can use the mix knob, and i do use an expression pedal. But there have been threads on the list before about the dl4 and its pedal implementation. it tends to be a pain in the ass, IMO. I have the expression pedal to control the 'mix' on all of my presets, so your point is well taken and yes...."obvious". what if i've got that cool multi-head sound and i'm tweaking it in real time?...even though the expression pedal was set to control just the mix, it's now gonna take into account those tweaks. so when i go to move the pedal to turn the mix down, it's not going to be a smooth fade out of my current tweak. it's going to mutate the sound back to some prior configuration of the tweaking as well as fading it out. example. say you have the multi-head on a pretty fast delay time, and you turn the feedback way up, so it's starting to self-oscillate. then you slowly turn the speed down, really slow, so you get this deconstructing downpitch thing. now you've got this noisy low rumble happening and you want to turn it off or fade it out. Go ahead, use the expression pedal, but that sound is now going to speed up as it fades out, back to where the knobs were when you started. you would pretty much have to get on your knees and adjust the mix manually, which is what i do mostly when we're doing alot of live knob twiddling. i am currently using the Line6 expression pedal, but used a Roland EV5 prior. If you buy the line6, try to get it from a catalog. it's usually cheaper than line6 sells it on their site (figure that one out), and it won't take 6 weeks to arrive (like mine did). best, rich >In the 'so obvious it might be useless' category of advice.... > >>regarding the dl4, changing delay models and tweaking leaves you >>stuck unless you decide to 'save' that preset. say you're using the >>digital delay, and you have that saved (and all of your other slots >>have saved presets). now start with the digital delay, and say you >>want to switch to the multi-head (but you don't have the multi-head >>as a saved preset). so you just turn the model knob and go to the >>multi-head. great, now ya start tweaking and you get something you >>really like. now here comes a section where you have to turn the >>delay off, but you don't want to save over any of your other presets. >>no can do. once you turn that multi-head setting off, it's gone. > >You can just adjust the MIX knob all the way to dry and that >MultiHead setting will still be there waiting for you won't it?
