How easy to use is the tap tempo function? For some reason I don't really trust myself using tap tempo. Probably because I only have when jamming, never with a band. Also I did notice that the Nova Delay has a screen that shows you the delay time in MS, and the Repeater gives a ballpark figure, that's quite a nice feature that the Flashback doesn't have. They all sound fantastic and look very cool. It's a shame that the Flashback doesn't have a tap tempo out like the Boss DD's have.
I like how small the Flashback is and I really like how it takes 9v, I don't want to buy a 12v 300ma power supply. Does it come with a power supply?
Thanks for the info man, it's very useful. Did you try all three before deciding on the Flashback?
the tap tempo on the flashback is easy to use, the official TC demo is vast, should give you a good idea, but nothing beats a separate footswitch for tap tempo, in the middle of a jam/song you can't necessarily mute your signal for 4-5 seconds..
the nova delay/repeater come with power supplies, the screen showing delay time is neat, but not something i need in any case
i've tried the nova delay, the repeater afaik are the same delays but less features
i picked the flashback as i only have space on my board for that, i use it for certain more spatial/sweeter sounding delays as i have a line6 m9 for most stuff and it also has a tap tempo switch, the flashback sounds better to my ears tho
tc delays are quality across the range, the price difference will only be in terms of features
for the price and if using an extra wall wart isn't an issue for you i think the nova repeater is a good deal, and buy used
save yourself a bunch of cash
