Eventide Timefactor


Like most of Eventide’s pedals, this box contains a whole universe. There are few if any delay pedals on the market that can do as much as this insane machine can. With its incredible manipulability, huge amounts of preset storage, and well designed app, it will be hard to find a delay pedal more worthwhile than this.

HornFX Review

Interface:  2.5/5
This pedal allows you so much control that it can be overwhelming. The pedal itself is not an easy one to use, especially when editing sounds on the fly. Even though it gives you almost unlimited control, it can be a daunting pedal to take on.

Versatility: 5/5
There is very little this pedal cannot do. If there is a delay sound you wish you had, you will find it here, or will be able to create it here.

Tonal Reproduction: 4/5
Whether you want a clean, clear reproduction of your sound or a distorted, modulated mess, this pedal can do it well.

Complexity: High

Complexity: High

Live application: 4/5
Although the Timefactor is difficult to manipulate or edit live, and takes up quite a lot of space, its huge storage capacity for presets, and immense potential for external control make it a wonderful live pedal.
