This program installed without any problems and has worked great thus far. I use a mac and there were no compatible problems at all. The general configuration/setup is fairly simple. When you open up the program, you will notice it looks just like a stomp box guitar effect. All the knobs and switches are right there and very easy to use and figure out what they do. All together you get four "headings" that house the effects. They are Input, Delay, Regen, and Output (regen is another way of saying feedback). In the input heading, you get the volume knob, a Hi-cut knob (make it a little more analog sounding) and a Low-cut knob. Under the Delay you get the delay time knob, a mult switch that gives you the normal delay or a doubled delay sound, and also a on/off sync button (very useful, you don't have to try and manually figure out the delay time to match it to your project). Under the Regen heading you get an amount knob, a on/off loop switch and a on/off reverse (sweet!). And finally under the Output heading you get a dry/wet mix and an output volume knob. All in all you get everything needed for a sweet yet fairly simple delay pedal. As for the manual, I never looked for one in the program and have yet to need it. If you have used a delay pedal before, this shouldn't be too hard to figure out. I am giving it a 9 only because I still feel the real deal (hardware delay devices) still sound better.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

My computer rig is as follows: Macbook Intel core duo, 2.2 ghz, 4GB ram, I use a Presonus Firebox for my audio interface. My host program is Logic 8/Mainstage and so far I have had no problems with this software. If I had to quantify the performance or quality, I would give it a 9 out of 10 but again, only because I think hardware delays are better than any software devices. The software is totally stable, it has never crashed and works with flawlessly with both Logic and Mainstage.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using this program for about 3 months. What I like about it the most is the Sync on/off switch. It saves you the hassle of trying to manually tweak the knob to get the delay to match the tempo of your song. I can't really say there is anything I don't like about the program, it is what it is, a simple yet effective delay effect. I have a few other delay effects (Native instruments Spektral delay and the built in Logic 8 options) and this one makes it into a lot of my mixes. This program is only $39, which is not too bad. Yes, I would do it again.
