If you ever want to get rid of the trail, you can usually switch the "Delay Mode" button to something else and then back down. That's what I do if I ever make a mistake in a sample like that with a similar pedal, that typically works rather well. I dont remember if my old DD6 would do that or not, but I'm pretty sure that it would.
But yes, that is typically very coveted as a feature on delays. The DD6 isnt even particuraly musical with its pitch shifts, I recall. Dano has that one pedal that all it does is makes a short delay, and you use the foot rocker to make it into a "pitch shifter." That's also why the Boss PS units are all coupled with delays, it is a time based effect (at least with the Boss pedals I think, I could be wrong). The Boss PS2 even self oscillates in pitch shifting mode (when the delay chip becomes overloaded and begins to feedback on itself and its internal noise/signal, creating beautiful space ship/static-y noises).

I'm thinking about buying myself a seecond-hand DD-6, (mostly for the Reverse function like in Pearl Jam's "Last Exit" which my AD-9 can't do) and I want to know if I should go for it or not. Also, what exactly does the warp mode do?
The Digitech XDD does a good reverse too, and I think its delays are much warmer and less pingy, but still clear enough to decently get through a mix and give you more than just a general spaciness. I'm fairly confident the Warp mode is just an infinite delay, with no decay. Not overly interesting and useful, but I suppose it's nice they tacked it on. The only really shining thing about the DD6 (aside from super-availability and Boss construction) is the 6 second hold, which is a decent introduction to a looper.
