Line 6 introduced the DL4 Mkll Delay Monitor. It includes everything in the original DL4 Delay Modeler, while introducing 15 new MKII delays drawn from our HX family of amp and effects processors and both 4-Switch and 1-Switch loopers with up to 240 seconds of record time (expandable to several hours using an optional microSD card).
There’s also an XLR microphone input, MIDI In and Out/Thru connectors, heavy duty foot switches, three bypass options, and a jack for connecting an optional expression pedal or two additional footswitches, three bypass options, and a jack for connecting an optional expression pedal or two additional footswitches. The DL4 MkII is also smaller and higher than the original, making it an even more appealing choice for modern musicians.
Build: The DL4 MkII is constructed from cast aluminum to withstand the rigors of performance.
Control Layout: DL4 MKII utilizes the same layout of knobs and foot switches as the original. Pressing the Legacy button converts DL4 MKII into a DL4.
Delay: There are 30 delays total: 15 new MkII delays drawn from the HX family of amp and effects processors, 14 original delays, and Echo Platter, taken from the rackmount Echo Pro.
Looping: The 4-Switch Classic Looper and the 1-Switch Looper operate in either mono or stereo and maybe positioned before or after other effects.
Looping Time/Micro SD: Onboard memory provides up to 240 seconds of recording time, expandable to several hours using an optional microSD card, which also enables a loop tone stored in memory.
XLR Microphone Input: Connect a dynamic microphone to the XLR input for vocal (or acoustic instrument) processing and looping, and adjust the gain using the Trim control.
MIDI: MIDI In and Out/Thru DN connectors enable the DL4 MkII to receive continuous controller, program change, and other MIDI messages from external sources.
Bypass: Bypass options include buffered, DSP, and true bypass. Buffered bypass and true bypass avoid A/D/A conversion by routing signals directly from the input(s) to the output(s).
Footswitches: The footswitches select presets A, B, and C. When the Looper is active, they select the Record/Overdub, Play/Stop and Play Once functions.
Expression Pedal: Connect an optional expression pedal (automatically assigned to relevant effects parameters), two assignable external foot switches, or one of each.
External Switches: Connect up to two assignable external footswitches, an expression pedal, or one of each.
DC Power: DC power is provided by the included 9V DC-1g power supply or via most other 9V center-negative power supplies.
