Eventide TimeFactor overview

  • 1Description

Eventide has long been known for its spectacular effects processors, used on countless records and in live performances. The company has taken that experience and produced the TimeFactor stompbox, featuring twin delay effects geared mainly towards the guitarist, but also completely at home in any studio, professional or project.

TimeFactor has two inputs and two outputs and provides the ability to control two delays of up to three seconds each. These two delays are designated as Delay A and Delay B. Depending on the effect and the input/output connections, the delays may work on independent inputs and outputs, or the delays may be fed from the same input and the delay outputs combined.

The unit is easy to use. Each effect has parameters that can be modified by turning any of ten control knobs. The knobs allow for setting delay time, feedback, mix levels and adjusting other parameters that change the sound of each effect. Additionally, certain aspects can be controlled by three footswitches.

When powered up, the TimeFactor remembers what it was last doing and powers up in the same mode, running the same effect, with the same parameter values, same tempo, same system settings, etc. With power off, relays connect the unit's inputs directly to its outputs.

    Eventide TimeFactor reviews

    TimeFactor - Delay Effects Stompbox is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this delay After searching for weeks for the right delay I finally settled on the timefactor and could not be happier. I use it 2 ways, as the last effect on my pedalboard with stereo INS and stereo outs feeding two amps and from the send to the return of each of two amps. The timefactor works great in both uses. The ability to choose the mix of both dry and delay is great. The ability to use two seperate delay lines is like having two delay lines in one. I also like the three options for bypass type allowing you to use the peal as a buffer in your chain or going full true bypass. For the money this is one of the most versatile units available, and with the quality of eventide behind it, you cannot go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all about tone and sound The sound is very clear. No coloring. This is by far the best delay I've had and the others I've owned don't macth on any point... (Ibanez AD-9, Boss DD-7) It's a bit expensive but worth it. It's simple to use, very nice and offers a lot for the money. The sound is absolutely incredible. The USB port offers the capability of upgrading the presets and firmware. This pedal evolves so it doesn't get outdated. Eventide have a nive web support and pdf files and programs. You can organize the presets with a free application on their site. So many features - impossible to list.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sounds and versatile delay I have had this unit for one year and I'm still discovering all the power it can unleash. It is the last unit of my pedalboard and is connected to the fx loop of my amp. The sound is crystal clear (may be too much if bypass is not set properly), the delays are VERY musical and the presets are ready to use although writing your own is still the best musical way to use any effects. I recommend using it with an expression pedal and in stereo since most of the best delays make use of stereo. Also, having an usb port to update it regularly (version 3 has real pink floyd sounds!!!!!) is a cool bonus. I know timeline is good and el Capistan is also a monster pedal but this is a great unit which goes beyond simple repetitions into a world of magical sound. Great product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
