The Strymon Timeline produces a wide palette of delay tones with very high audio quality. Its powerful modelling capabilities make it a great tool for replicating analog and tape delay sounds while leveraging modern technology like MIDI synchronisation and precise parameter control. In addition to being able to carefully sculpt traditional delay sounds, the Timeline has several delay unique delay engines that incorporate pitch, filter and envelope modulation as well as varying patterns of delay trails, opening up the possibilities for creating truly new sounds.

The Strymon Timeline is a digital delay pedal that employs powerful DSP to produce hardware emulations as well as its own signature sounds. Its features are comprehensive and flexible with 12 delay engines, the ability for acute control of parameters, MIDI implementation, stereo outputs and external control capabilities. Since its release in 2011, it has become an incredible popular choice for guitar players as well as other instrumentalists and producers.    


The Timeline is designed to be integrated into a variety of situations. While its stomp box format suggests it is geared towards live use, stereo I/O, high-quality analog-to-digital conversion and studio-grade signal-to-noise ratio mean the it is at home out an outboard device for recording and mixing. The real draw of the Timeline is its incredible flexibility. Modelling of tape and bucket brigade analog delays provides faithful recreation of classic delay sounds without the limitations, noise levels or inconsistencies of older devices. It also features less traditional sounds such as the Ice model, which pitch-shifts the delay at a musical interval of the user’s choosing, Filter model, which allows synth-style filtering over repeats and Patten model, which plays the delay trails back in rhythmic patterns. Each delay engine has comprehensive editing features that extend beyond standard delay time and length of repeat controls to allow tweaking over tone and modulation settings, allowing sounds to be carefully sculpted to a track.
