What is it
The Megatap Delay is a 4 second, 64-tap delay line with parametric control of time, amplitude, and panning.
Megatap Delay in the Axe-Fx III
"Time Shape was removed and the algorithm improved so that Time Alpha controls the tap distribution. Values less than 1.0 result in the time between taps decreasing with the tap number. Value greater than 1.0 cause the time to increase. The other shapes just don't sound right so they were removed.
The Megatap Delay has its own envelope follower, allowing volume swells.
