What's the difference between the Normal Superdelay and the Vintage Modified Superdelay?
The only difference sound-wise is in the tape mode. The VMSD takes the tape algorithm of the Normal Superdelay and makes it more extreme. So there's m...

I'm trying to power the Superdelay with the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus, but it's not working. What's going on?

Why did you choose positive tip instead of negative tip? Are you just trying to be annoying?
[UPDATE] This was written in 2014. Power supplies have come a long way since then, but back then, sourcing high current negative tip 9V power supplies was a...

Can I plug a CV signal into the expression pedal input?
Yes, but there are a couple things you want to do. The range that the SD accepts is from 0V to 3.3V. Don't let the voltage get above 3.3V. Also, you'...

My expression pedal only controls effect in the first 10% of it's travel, what's going on?
Expression pedals come in two pinouts. Some put the signal on the tip of the TRS cable (what the Superdelay expects), some put the signal on the ring. If it...

What is the headroom of the Superdelay and VMSD?
It can handle 7Vpp, which is 10dBu or 8dBV, so it can definitely handle line level.
