Inspiration Machine.

When we decided to create a studio-class stereo delay effects pedal, we knew we must go well beyond what has been done in the past—in sound quality, sonic flexibility, hardware design, and processing power. We spent months locked up in the Strymon sound design labs dreaming up the most spacious, lush, creative, and tweakable delay effects ever heard. It was a monumental task—a relentless study of delays and their nuances, and a continuous pursuit of innovative and musically inspirational sounds. Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed.

TimeLine Multidimensional Delay

Explore Your Creativity.

TimeLine provides you with twelve unique delay machines, each with extensive control over sonic character and feel. Go from crisp and clear, studio-quality digital delays all the way to the saturated and fluctuating sounds of tape delay machines. Get warm and fuzzy analog style repeats all the way to shimmery, sparkling, and crystalline ice delays.

Tweak to your hearts content and save up to 200 presets of your favorite sounds. Top it all off with full MIDI implementation and a routable, 30-second stereo looper and you’re on your way to delay bliss.

12 Unique Delay Machines

TimeLine provides twelve studio-class, fully tweakable delay machines.
  • Digital
  • Dual
  • Pattern
  • Reverse
  • Ice
  • Duck
  • Swell
  • Trem
  • Filter
  • Lo-Fi
  • dTape
  • dBucket
  • A crystal-clear digital delay that can be endlessly tweaked and enriched with the Filter, Grit, Smear, High Pass, and Modulation controls. A wide range of delay tones can be achieved with this classic “voiced” digital approach. In addition, a non-linear mode allows the repeats to fade more quickly, while still retaining a natural feel.

    Audio Samples

    • Digital Delay with Filter and Grit
    • Gritty, Watery Digital Delay
    • Slapback Funk
    • Hi Passed Crunch
    • Clean and Simple
    • '90s Sparkle Delay
    • Smokey Ethereal Repeats
    • Ambient Drone

  • Two independent delay lines can be configured in series or parallel (right/left split). The second delay has independent Mix, Repeat and Time values, and can also be set to track the first delay’s knob values.

    Audio Samples

    • 1/8 Dual Delay
    • 7/8 Dual Delay
    • Parallel or Series
    • Staccato Picking
    • Delay as Chorus

  • The Pattern machine gives you a variety of multi-tap patterns that span from rhythmic to ambient to percussive and everything in between. Filter, Grit and Mod knobs deliver a wide range of delay experiences.

    Audio Samples

    • Simple Pattern with Modulation
    • Sparkle Vision
    • Following Me
    • Slow Pattern
    • Lots of Dots
    • Big Stadium
    • Little Footsteps
    • Bouncy
    • Drone with Time Shuffle
    • Delay as Reverb (with Infinite Repeats)

  • You play frontwards, it repeats backwards. Your playing triggers the delays, producing predictable, repeatable, and extremely useful reverse effects. Add some Smear to soften the attacks—smearing transients while retaining full frequency response.

    Audio Samples

    • Spacey Reverse
    • Backwards Lead
    • Backwards Warble
    • More Spacey Reverse
    • Drippy Reverse
    • Reverse Drone (with Time Freak Out)

  • The Ice machine slices and dices your input and plays the pieces back with a selectable Interval shift amount—from an octave down to two octaves up, and anywhere in between. You can Blend the ice amount from none to all. Selectable Slice size allows further possibilities, changing the size of audio chunks that get shifted.

    Audio Samples

    • Majestic Chords
    • Snow Starts to Fall
    • Little Buggies
    • Subtle Ice with Fifths
    • Majestic Chords Part II
    • Frozen Lead
    • Subtle Major 2nd
    • Bass Follower
    • Super Modulated
    • Freezing Rain
    • Levitating Major Thirds
    • Ice Time Craziness

  • Duck — and cover. You get a ducking delay with adjustable Sensitivity and Release Time, along with a switchable Feedback duck option. This allows for a wide variety of dynamic delay effects.

    Audio Samples

    • Roasted Duck
    • Extreme Ducking
    • Maximum Repeats Duck
    • Ducking Lead
    • Creeping Delay
    • Sensitivity and Release Time

  • Variable swell time allows you to match the swell with the delay time. Turn the Mix to full wet and turn up the repeats for ethereal ambient effects. Adjust the Rise Time to set the time constant for the swell effect. Add some Smear to soften the attacks—smearing transients while retaining full frequency response.

    Audio Samples

    • 100% Wet Swell
    • Floating on Air
    • Make Believe
    • What Repeats?

  • The Trem delay machine provides you with a synchronized tremolo with Waveshape, Depth and Speed for cool new sounds. Choose from triangle, square, sin, ramp, and saw to vary the delay amplitude.

    Audio Samples

    • 3/1 Sine Tremolo
    • Speed Control
    • Square Pegs
    • Spooky 3/1
    • Twang Thing
    • Ramp Trem

  • The Filter delay gives you a synchronized Filter that can be placed before or after the delay. Waveshape, Depth, Speed, Resonance, and Filter Location are all adjustable parameters. Choose from triangle, square, sin, ramp, saw, random, up, and down to vary the delay amplitude. Limitless filter possibilities!

    Audio Samples

    • The Juno Echo
    • Random LFO (Depth Control)
    • See Saw (Speed Control)
    • Filter Sweep
    • Extreme Heights
    • Randommmmmmmm
    • 1/8 Ramp
    • Quiet Time

  • Crush some bits with the Lo-Fi delay machine. Adjust Bit Depth and Sample Rate while blending the results with the full resolution signal. Select from several hand crafted lo-fi Filters, spanning transistor radios, telephones, phonographic horns, and other “collectibles”. Top it off with our exclusive dVinyl record noise, adding a scratchy record complete with dust and dirt.

    Audio Samples

    • Fun with Fidelity
    • It Sounds Broken
    • Filtered Lo-Fi
    • War Zone
    • Fidelity Killer
    • Instant Bitcrusher
    • 10-Bit, Heavy Modulation
    • Pretty Little Bits

  • The dTape machine delivers the complete experience of sought-after sliding-head tape echo machines, with every attribute relentlessly studied and faithfully recreated. Full control over Tape Age, Wow & Flutter, Tape Crinkle, Tape Bias, Low End Contour, and Tape Speed.

    Audio Samples

    • Oscillating Particles
    • Short and Sweet
    • Fast Warble
    • Slapback Crunch
    • Dirty Magnets
    • Low End Contour (Off, then Max)

  • While the TimeLine is an amazing tool in live contexts, many players will find it incredibly expressive in the studio, too. In addition to the deep functionality of the unit at the most immediately accessible levels, each delay machine can seem almost infinitely tweakable to suit a musical situation.

    Premier Guitar Magazine
  • TimeLine’s variety and quality of sounds, solid construction, and ease of use— all at a reasonable price point—more than qualifies it for an Editors’ Pick Award.
    Michael Ross
    Guitar Player Magazine
  • We reckon that a comprehensive range of delay effects that is particularly strong on emulating vintage gear, plus myriad tweakable parameters to create your sounds and 200 memories so you won’t lose any of them, is a killer combination.
