The Eventide Time Factor is a digital delay pedal that is made for guitar and features a wide array of different types of delays.  The pedal has two 1/4 inch inputs and outputs as well as 1/4 inch connections for an expression pedal and an aux switch.  It also has a USB connection and is powered by the 9 volt power supply that comes with it.  It isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is foot pedal.


The make up of the Eventide Time Factor is pretty easy to follow.  The pedal has a large variety of parameters including ones for mix, delay mix, delay time A and B, feedback A and B, tempo, depth, speed, and filter.  You can record loops as well as tap out the tempo as well.  While it does take a little bit of playing around with to get used to how to use everything that this pedal has to offer, everything is pretty user friendly so they do make it as easy as possible to do so.  The manual for the Eventide Time Factor pedal is pretty complete and easy to follow, but unless you are a beginner I don't think that one is necessary.


The sound quality of the Eventide Time Factor is really clean overall and since this a versatile pedal you can get all sorts of different types of delay sounds.  It has a whole bunch of delay types including digital, vintage, tape, modulation, ducked, and reverse, as well as a looper a few other types of delays.  I usually use the Eventide Time Factor with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb amp, so I'm getting a pretty accurate read as to what this pedal really sounds like and I definitely like what I am hearing.


I've been using the Eventide Time Factor guitar pedal for a few months and it is definitely a powerful, versatile delay pedal for guitar players as well as others who want to add delay to their sound.  While this might be a bit too clean and digital sounding for some, I do think that most users will like the way this sounds as it does do a good job of emulating vintage and tape delay sounds.  The price of the Eventide Time Factor is quite expensive for a pedal, so I know that this will shy most people away, but if you can afford this it is definitely worth it.
