Delay:  Delay is a time-based modulation effect that copies the incoming signal and plays it back one or multiple times through a period of time. That period of time (Time) and the number of times it’s played back (Repeats) depends on the delay itself.  The delay time is calculated in milliseconds.  Delay pedals are produced in both analog and digital.
