Video: Alexander Pedals Releases the Radical Delay DX

When we asked Alexander Pedals' Matthew Farrow last year what his favorite weird effect was, he pointed to the Akai Deep Impact SB1, a truly different take on the genre of synth-style fuzz/filter/octave pedals, made by a brand best known for its samplers and grooveboxes.

His appreciation for the unique has led Alexander Pedals to release its own highly innovative pedals, like the Colour Theory spectrum sequencer, Syntax Error audio computer system, and Wavelength multi-modulator.

Alexander Pedals Radical Delay DX

The company's Radical Delay was one of its first releases, a three-mode digital delay that could bring warped tails, bent repeats, and more oddities to otherwise clean delay tones. The Super Radical Delay added a fourth mode, as well as MIDI and preset capabilities, and expanded into a larger enclosure.

But the brand-new Radical Delay FX, an updated take that will join Alexander's Neo Series, packs six different modes into a compact chassis:

  • Mod: Digital delay with modulation.
  • Bend: Delay with pitch shift applied to repeats.
  • Rev: Reverse delay, taken from the CME-exclusive Radical Reverse.
  • Dual: Two delay lines that can be set and tweaked independently.
  • Arp: A fan-favorite mode that gives the choice of eight selectable arpeggiation patterns that can be used on your delayed or dry signal.
  • Dyna: The pedal's "secret trick" that has a delay line controlled by the volume of your guitar playing, with the ability to control how sensitively or dramatically it will respond.
