"No wonder every store is out of stock!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
First, -- I'll confess -- I'm still trying to grasp all the things the Time Factor can do. The sound quality is astounding. The built in presets include reverbs, delays, chorus, flange, reverse notes, ring modulator. The presets are good, but also point out something Eventide doesn't. To really use this thing, you must use an expression pedal to control the amount of effect. Many of the sound demos on the Eventide website cannot be achieved with just the Time Factor.
Does lots, but excels at reverb and delay. I'll sell my MicroVibe, but keep my X2 Chorus pedal.
Ease of Use:
So many knobs, so little time. Thank goodness the presets sound good. The manual is helpful.
It appears to be extremely well made.
Haven't had to use support. Their website is confusing and could use improvement.
Value is a tough proposition. $400 for a stomp box, plus $70 or so for an expression pedal is extremely salty. But when you consider that Eventide's previous less expensive product was 2 grand, this seems almost reasonable. The value question to me is answered simply by this -- there's no way I'm sending it back.
The Wow Factor:
Try to find one. I got SDM's next to last unit. Nuff said.
This is a keeper. If it was stolen, I'd replace it if I could afford to.
