The Vintage Modified Superdelay packs in plenty of delay possibilities, including many that are entirely unique to this pedal. It is without a doubt one of the most powerful and versatile delay pedals available. Equipped with a dedicated control for operating different modes including normal, tap, autoset, reverse, rhythm, tape delay, misc and loop mode.


Normal Mode

This is the standard digital delay type operation, known and loved by all. In Normal 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; 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.

Reverse and Rhythm Modes

In Reverse Mode the delay samples are played backwards. The Rhythm multi-tap mode allows you to input a rhythm of up to four taps by pressing the tap switch repeatedly. This rhythm will then be mimicked by the delay.

Tape Mode

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

Looper Mode

This clever unit has the ability to sample and loop 13.6 seconds of audio. Once an initial audio clip has been sampled it will loop continuously and the user can add additional layers to the loop. This is an ideal tool for creating a bigger sound with a dramatic impact. It provides a fun way to record and overdub ideas, useful for improvising creating new song parts.


The Empress Effects Superdelay is equipped with eight 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 the pedal is first powered up, it operates with the settings that are on the knobs, as opposed to a preset being automatically loaded.
