The mechanics behind basic delay are simple: Play a note or chord into an audio-storage medium, then get that device to play that sound back to you — either once or multiple times — after whatever amount of time makes you happy. Of course, people have improved upon this simple formula, taking delay to new depths and heights, and often including an infinite assortment of types and combinations in one pedal.
