The Radical Delay II Plus is an ’80s flavored delay from Garner, North Carolina’s Alexander Pedals.
Time (8 D. Q) — Changes the delay time from 0-920ms. In Tap mode, this knob sets the tap tempo subdivision. Left for 8th notes, center for dotted 8ths or right for quarters.
Repeat — Controls the feedback of the delay. The Radical Delay II+does not self-oscillate, because that does not compute.
Tweak — Adjusts a different parameter in each mode. See the mode descriptions for full details.
Mix — Controls the blend between fully dry (clean) to fully wet (repeat only).
Mod — Super-clean digital delay with adjustable modulation. The Tweak knob adds a luscious modulation to the delay. At 12 o’clock there is no modulation. Clockwise adds a slow chorus and counter-clockwise adds a fast vibrato.
Glitch — Pristine digital delay that you can mangle in unusual and interesting ways. With the Tweak knob fully counter-clockwise, the Radical Delay will echo exactly what you play. Turn the Tweak knob clockwise to add some “ghost in the machine” style glitches and odd pitch modulation. And with the Tweak knob fully clockwise, the Radical Delay sounds more like a synthesizer or video game console.
Bend — Delay with pitch shifting that’s based on the earliest technology and spirals up or down with each repeat. Turn the Tweak knob counter clockwise to shift the pitch down or clockwise to shift up.
