?Also, I had assumed that the nasty distortion on the vintage delay was a mistake. I emailed Eventide about it and they thanked me for pointing it out.

It is deliberate, isn't it?? The lower the bit rate setting (x knob), the more noise you have. A lot of older, "vintage" digital delays are noisy–like my Korg SDD-3000, for instance. The noise makes it more authentic, although I definitely don't overdo it. 😉

I'm still keeping a couple analog delays, and I'm not going to sell my Fulltone TTE either. But the TimeFactor is a fantastic pedal. I'd love for it to have even more features, but it's awfully good as is.
