The Joyo D-Seed II is an affordable digital, Stereo in/out, multi-delay pedal with Tap Tempo and a Looper that’s getting a fair amount of attention from ambient players. It stands out for some rather unique features.
It offers 8 delay modes and a loop mode, including Reverse, Modulation, Space, filter and Lo-Fi (plus all the usual suspects). The Time Knob looks like a rotary knob that locks at 1/4, 1/8 and 16th notes etc. but it actually a regular control without locking slots, and produces the classic “swoops” typical of analog delays when adjusted live.
Although it’s presented in the “sub-title” as a “Dual Channel” delay, it is not, as in, it does not have a dual delay engine, but it is a Stereo pedal, so maybe that’s what that “Dual” is meant to signify. However, it can produce enhanced Stereo effects in any mode thanks to a rather unique Ping Pong switch, which alternates the main repeats on the left and right channels.
The Looper is a cool and useful add-on, in particular for those who like to experiment. It can play underneath your delay and its level, tone and delay send can be controlled through alternative function for the Level, Feedback and Time Beat knobs.
