The first preset uses the third time pattern, which is a dual delay line giving 3/4 of the delay time on the left and the full delay time on the right. Therefore, if you play quarter notes at the delay time shown in the display, then the left side will produce delays in between the notes you play and the right side will produce delays on top of the notes you play. more ...

The second preset uses an octave down and an octave up shift with the 7th time pattern, which is a root-based delay. Therefore the repeated pattern has the note you play at the displayed delay time followed by an octave down on the left, an octave down on the right, and another octave down on the left. more ...

The third preset uses two octaves up for both voicings with the dynamic repeats mode. This produces ominous high pitched tones when playing single notes. Playing chords adds an element of whistling wind to the sound. Use palm muting to control the level of the effect - the more you mute your strings, the louder the effect becomes. more ...

This clip uses a lot of distortion before the TimeBender delay pedal. The TimeBender is setup to use an analog delay mode, slightly raised tone, some mod and repeats at about 60% and the mix fairly low at about 40%. The voicing is 8H U with time pattern 10 and a delay of 625 ms, which gives 3 taps on the left with octave up pitch shift and 3 taps on the right with no pitch shift. more ...

This clip uses the envelope mode with the 10th time pattern to create a nice stereo tremolo effect. The repeats knob controls the shape of the envelope curve - at 60%, the shape has a very smooth attack and release. Try playing with the repeats to alter the shape. more ...

While we are not affiliated with Sweetwater in any way, we feel these demos are very good and will help end users get more out of the timebender, so here they are: more ...
