This sounds like the early rack mount digital delays from the 80’s by DoD, Ibanez, etc… although with some more advanced delay modulation waveforms other than sine/triangle. I still have several of these old variable simple rate devices around, which by the way, I agree sounds quite a bit better than fixed sample rate/DSP techniques – less aliasing and anharmonic artifacts.
There are already a few delay pedals that use the same “bit bucket” concept (pt2399 is the chip).
Too me this is definitely the way to go with delay based effects! Rose is a great product that was missing.
