The Delay+Filter+OD Laboratory
Happy Tosh !, 25.09.2020
Very high quality stereo delay unit that is unlike any other that I have tried or seen.
Very fun to play with using ANY Audio source, from Vocals, instruments, drums, field recordings, live or recorded material.
I do find there are some issues and missed opportunities that hav finally made me decide to return the product.
I think there will be a Zen Delay 2 for sure in the not so distant future which hopefully improve on these points, and some may even be fixed in updates.
The issues for me are:
- The digital delay high pitched noise that surely can be called a bug.
- The mix issue that prevents parallell filtering without noticable doubleing because it's post dsp conversion even when the delay is turned off.
- No way to modulate parameters with CV or other input.
- Would be great to have even more delay modes like reverse and more!

Great fun - lots of flexibility
JMC_dnb, 17.07.2020
The Erica Synth Zen Delay is a weighty and solid unit. Looks kick-ass and sounds better. It works as an external effect with Ableton perfectly and I've also used direct my in effect chain. Fun to experiment with or to do more classic delay processing. I'm using it with synths primarily but have run drum loops through it too.

By-passing the delay allows use of the filter and the tube drive effects which has expanded my options. Driving a Kick drum sounds whopper -defo give that a go.

I have used the midi cable to sync the clock with my daw but the more I've been using it, I'm leaning towards just tapping the tempo to it's not "perfectly" in sync - I've been getting cooler effects with this and less chance of phase when it comes to drums.

Top stuff all round, get one, have some fun, make some noise :)

Best delay and filter! But..
veryZen, 01.04.2020
Be aware that the Zen Delay has an annoying high frequency tone when both delay and filter are active. Since the filter and drive signal path is analogue you will have some analogue signal noise. That's totally fine. It's even the reason I want an analogue circuit. It's the character of this device. But this tone is different. It's a high frequency tone that is audible while playing music. It's especially audible when using that BP filter 2/3 open. For me this is unusable.

Charakter Delay!
Paulsen & Stryczek, 04.11.2020
Ich nutze das Zen Delay im Studio für lebendige Live - Delay Aufzeichnungen und Filterungen des Signals. Positiv: Durch die sehr wertige Verarbeitung des Gerätes, die schönen großen Potis mit
gutem Drehmoment und dem wirlich beeindruckendem tollem Sound des Delays macht das Ganze viel Spaß in Session- Situationen! Negativ: Delays müssen immer getappt oder von Hand eingestellt werden, es gibt keine Möglichkeit, eine BPM Zahl direkt einzustellen!
Gleichzeitig ist diese Begrenzung für mich eine Herrausforderung, schöne passende Delays und Filterungen von Hand einzustellen und zu finden! Total Recall wird sowiso überbewertet, intuitives Hören und Schrauben am Sound fordert den Musiker!
Fazit: Verarbeitung, Bedienung und der Sound sind genau das, was ich immer wollte! Klare Kaufempfehlung meinerseits!
