The Modes in More Detail

Normal Mode

The Normal Modes is the standard digital delay type operation, known by many guitarists. In this mode the tap switch, when pressed, mutes the wet signal for one ‘delay time’ period. This is useful if you’re using a high feedback setting as you can press the tap switch when you change chords to avoid dissonance from the feedback of the previous chord ringing over the current chord.

Tap Mode

Whilst using the Tap Mode the delay time is controlled by tapping the tap switch repeatedly to a desired tempo. For tapped tempo accuracy the unit takes an average of repeated taps.

Auto-Set Mode

In Auto-Set Mode the Superdelay sets the delay time by listening to the dynamics in your playing. The Superdelay is watching for volume peaks in the input signal. For this to work effectively the input passages should have relatively consistent rhythmic content. When you start playing in Auto-Set mode you should see the large, yellow LED to the right of the tap switch blink with each note you strike.

Reverse Mode and Rhythm Mode

In Reverse Mode the delay samples are played backwards.Whilst using the Rhythm (Multi-Tap) Mode by pressing the tap switch repeatedly you can input a rhythm of up to four taps. This rhythm will be mimicked by the delay.

Tape Mode

The Tape Mode was designed to impart some of the classic characteristics of original analog tape delays. The Delay time is controlled with the tap switch, and the d time/ratio knob functions as a ratio control in Tape Mode.

Looper Mode

The Empress Effects Superdelay is able to sample and loop 13.6 seconds of audio which is an ideal tool for repetitive riffs and background effects. Once an initial audio clip has been sampled it will loop continuously and the user can add additional layers to the loop.


The Empress Effects Superdelay offers 8 preset locations where users can store and recall their favourite settings. All the settings of each mode can be stored except for the audio loop in Looper Mode. When first powered up, the unit operates with the settings that are on the knobs, as opposed to a preset being automatically loaded. It is a great tool for composers, as all their work will be saved.

Compatible with Expression Pedals

The Empress Effects Superdelay allows an external expression pedal to be used to control the various features on the fly. To access this capability plug an expression pedal into the exp pedal jack on the back of the Superdelay , and use the exp pedal switch to select which parameter you’d like to control with the pedal. You can select mix, or feedback. The expression pedal replaces the knob on the top of the unit. The Superdelay will work with most Tip-Ring-Sleeve expression pedals.
