It's long time that I don't write on this forum but I always received good advice.
I'm interested in this Reverb/Delay pedal, the concept is similar to the Earthquaker Devices Dispatch Master but with tons of delay and reverb types and 4 preset. The problem is that there is no official review on the net and the comments on this pedal are in contrast: cheap and NOISY (don't know if they confuse it with the previous version FD-90 which was actually noisy) or affordable and QUIET.
I have a Nux Time Core, another made-in-china pedal with some minor problems but good after all so if the FD-900 has the same quality then I could be really intentioned of buying it.
Has anyone tried this pedal? Would/would not recommend it? Thank you in advance for you reply. Here's a youtube video:

For nontraditional reverb sounds I like my Muza M-Ambient FD-900...has delay before reverb, like 9 types of each, as well as a memory mode with 4 presets. I paid about $70usd which I think puts it in your price range more/less

I love mine actually, and feel it does the work of several reverbs and delays running at once. Does cool 8 bit pitch effects when you adjust the time settings of a delay trail on the fly.

I haven't noticed it being noisy, but then again I haven't exactly added this to my full board yet, mainly because it's too ambient/droney/wet for the kind of music I often play. But if I was playing shoegaze/experimental/drone I could probably get away with just this and maybe a fuzz.or OD pedal.

Two complaints.....
First is the stereo capabilities. My DL4 can run two in, one out, however the inputs in this aren't isolated and you can hear some bleed in the stereo out mix. Also IIRC the 2nd channel is only engaged when a stereo setting is selected. This probably isn't a problem depending on your application. ..for a mono guitar signal chain this would be a moot point.

The second is just how small the controls are and how many of them..another reason I haven't tried it on a live board, it's a lot to remember.
