This is the successor to the iconic DL4 Delay Modeler that debuted more than two decades ago and has been embraced by everyone from casual players to superstars.
Certain circles have touted DL4 as arguably the most important pedal of the last 20 years, and even after 23 years—an eternity in this industry—we couldn’t imagine messing with a good thing, said Eric Klein, Chief Product Design Architect, Line 6. "So, despite its new delays, modern capabilities and increased fidelity, a single button press literally turns the DL4 MkII into a DL4—so you can still party like it’s 1999 !
The DL4 MkII features 15 delays drawn from the HX family of amp and effects processors, for a total of 30 delay types. The MkII delays include both revered classics and Line 6 originals such as Harmony Delay, Pitch Echo, Euclidian Delay, Glitch Delay and ADT tape delay.
There are also 4-Switch and 1-Switch looper types, each with up to 240 seconds of record time, expandable to several hours using an optional microSD card.
Additional features include an XLR dynamic microphone input; MIDI capabilities such as real time parameter control and preset selection (up to 128); MIDI In and Out/Thru DIN connectors; heavy duty footswitches and switchable true, buffered, or DSP bypass.
An optional expression pedal or two external footswitches may also be connected for increased creative control.
Finally, although the DL4 MkII does everything that the original DL4 does (other than run on batteries), plus so much more, it is considerably smaller and lighter, making it an even more appealing choice for modern musicians of all types.
