Re: What's your favorite Delay for Live and Recording? Pedals especially?
Axl Rose has great delay! It takes him hours to show up on stage, and how long were we waiting for Chinese Democracy??
In all seriousness. There are a lot of good delays out there. Personally, I would want to look for one with analog character (or a hi-cut if it's digital). Modulation is handy as well, and stereo does not hurt (if you use it in recording).
You may want to just get one with live playing in mind though. You can get good free delay plugins that have many features for recording.
I have a friend that has a TC-electronics delay pedal, it has got to be one of (if not the) best I have heard. It has modulation and stuff, but it's about the size of the wampler pedal in the post above.
