I'm using my very bright Strat that's got a set of vintage-voiced pickups in it and an all maple neck like in that video.
The delay blocks are setup so the X side of the blocks are 1/4 note sync'ed to the tempo and the Y side of the blocks are dotted 1/8th node sync'ed to the blocks. This lets you use the patch for more than just 11 O'Clock Tick Tock type stuff. It works pretty well for other U2 songs too.
Pick the delay that suits: the DLY1 one block is a 2290, the DLY2 block is a stereo tape delay with a slight difference in the feedback percentage on the left and right channels. Both sound good. REV block is there for some ambience but drop it if you're in a big room.
