200 Built-In Presets
Are presets your thing? TimeLine gives you the option to instantly save and recall up to 200 of your own presets. Easily bank up or down through your presets using the front panel switches. Or select presets via an external MIDI controller.
Expression Pedal Control
Plug in an expression pedal and control any knob or combination of knobs, all saveable per preset. Or plug in an external momentary Tap Tempo switch for remote control of your tap tempo.
TimeLine comes with a built-in 30-second stereo looper, routeable pre- or post-delay. Record, overdub, play, and stop are right at your feet. Record the delay signal to your loop, or route the looper before your delay and saturate your dry loop in echoey goodness. Super simple to use and a ton of fun. Have a MIDI setup? Control the looper with an external foot controller, and access reverse, half speed, undo-to-initial-loop, and redo functions.
Switch to Feedback Loop mode and run an external effects pedal in the feedback loop of your TimeLine.
Extensive MIDI Support
Have a more complex rig? TimeLine offers a complete MIDI implementation to connect to your MIDI gear. Sync your delay time to MIDI clock. Remote control of any knob, parameter, or switch. Select your presets via MIDI. You can even send MIDI messages to the built-in looper.

While the TimeLine is an amazing tool in live contexts, many players will find it incredibly expressive in the studio, too. In addition to the deep functionality of the unit at the most immediately accessible levels, each delay machine can seem almost infinitely tweakable to suit a musical situation.
TimeLine’s variety and quality of sounds, solid construction, and ease of use— all at a reasonable price point—more than qualiﬁes it for an Editors’ Pick Award.
We reckon that a comprehensive range of delay effects that is particularly strong on emulating vintage gear, plus myriad tweakable parameters to create your sounds and 200 memories so you won’t lose any of them, is a killer combination.
