Arion DDS-1

black rectangular effects pedal with five knobs. white text. also pictured a small black & white booklet to the left of the pedal.
Arion Digital Delay/Sampler DDS-1. Digital delay from the 1980's. Has two outputs to run in stereo or dry/wet. Capable of very pretty, somewhat chilly crystalline delays. Similar to the Digitech PDS delays you can get some very cool glitchy/stutter effects when quickly switching modes. Use the remote option to record a micro-loop.
Consider this a precursor to the wonderful ambient micro-looperswhich companies such as Montreal Assembly, Chase Bliss, Hologram and Red Panda have expanded and perfected.
The Unperson has crafted this excellent demo of what makes the DDS-1 so charming:
