Diamond Memory Lane

It. Is. Back.  

Blending analog companding, anti-aliasing|reconstruction filters with a bucket brigade style delay line, we have immaculately captured the ethereal essence of the original big-box Memory Lane using Diamond’s innovative digital Bucket Brigade Delay technology (dBBD). Basically what we’re saying is, you get all the goodness of the original Memory Lane in a smaller footprint, over double the delay time, extended frequency response, higher SNR, and at a fraction of the current draw. 

This innovative progression of the Memory Lane is defined by 3 distinct delay lines to offer modern or vintage sounds. 

Original Circuit

The Memory Lane Jr. circuit reincarnated. Our original compander equipped dBBD delay line delivering up to 1200ms of lush, modulated repeats.

Three Distince Delay Modes

The Memory Lane's original fixed sampling rate delay line has been augmented with a new warm delay mode offering vintage BBD style variable sampling rate, warmer repeats and a 1200ms maximum delay time for gorgeous ambient delays as well as a new vintage mode designed to capture the magic of analog BBD delay pedals. Variable sampling rate, snappier repeats and 50ms-550ms delay times inspired by yesterday's big box delays. 

The New Standard

For the modern pedal-user's needs. Space saving design, without any loss of quality. Features include top mounted jacks, Burr-Brown equipped buffered bypass with optional trails, tap tempo with subdivisions, AutoDiv, Doubler, momentary or latching modulation and more.

Advanced Features 

GEEZER MODE: The Memory Lane has to have its classic operating mode. No frills, pure tone. GEEZER mode disables the secondary footswitch functions for those-seeking maximum simplicity. Hold the TAP|MODE toggle switch down during the entire LED power-up sequence to turn GEEZER mode on or off.  

TRAILS MODE: In TRAILS mode, the delayed signal will trail off according to the FEEDBACK knob when the effect is bypassed. In non-trails mode, the delay will immediately kill the delayed signal when the effect is bypassed.  

Hold the TAP|MODE toggle switch up during the entire LED power-up sequence to turn TRAILS mode on or off.  

MOMENTARY | LATCHING MODE: the MODULATION and DOUBLER can operate in either:  

1) Momentary |only while its footswitch is held down  

2) Latching |toggled on and off when its footswitch is held down 

Hold down the ON|MOD or TAP|DBL footswitch during the entire LED power-up sequence to change its respective operation.  

All of our research and development has culminated into a unique sonic signature that can only be described as distinctly Memory Lane.
