delay  delay  dla   a          
 "delay" means repetiton or likewise,     
 but it's mainly useless without          
 to allow the delay to eat of it's own    
 tail, like one of those eaty serpents.   
 thus: it's the serpent effect!           
 it's to be revered as a creator of       
 ambience and of space, if you treat it   
 right. a somewhat more solid and         
 slippery sibling of reverb.
