Here’s an audio sample of my sax and ewi through the TC Electronic Nova Repeater. The sax, ewi and Repeater are all run through the MOTU Ultralite mk3 mixer. I’m using the Ultralite’s eq & compression and routing the Repeater in parallel. This is the same setup I use when playing live with the exception that my live signal is mono.
My TC Electronic Nova Repeater came in today! I’ve been working with it for about an hour and a half. I’m real happy with the quality of delay. Here’s the setup that works best for me but first let tell you that it’s run in parallel through a mixer so I have the Kill Dry button engaged (the Nova Delay does not have this feature). I have the Spillover button engaged. I like to hear the delay fade when I turn it off, something I find more musical than the abrupt stop. I use the tap tempo and Audio Tapping to select the rate of delay. Even though I have the Division set at a quarter note, I may tap the eighth note or triplet. The Audio Tapping feature is awesome because it sets the rate at whatever rhythm I’m playing at that moment. I like a tight feedback so the knob is at 9 o’clock. The Tone knob is at 2 o’clock and the Mod knob is at 11 o’clock. Both of those knobs work well with the Tape Delay Type setting. The Tone knob brightens things up and the Mod knob adds a little more vibrato to the delay. I can’t wait to use it this weekend!
