Just two comments:

1) yes, rakarrack *does* rock - incredible sounds you can get from that
creature (for anyone interested, git version has many more goodies
than last release)

2) If you want to have more and more precise control on your effects
(like the 3/16 delay you mentioned) you really should look into pd or
supercollider. Don't fool yourself saying "I am no coder". You can
learn, at various degrees. And while it may be more difficult to learn
than playing with a gui, the time investment will be rewarded. If
your focus is on electronic music, you really should learn to use (at
least to some degree) the more advanced tools: on a computer, these are
things like pd and sc.

If you're italian (which your name strongly suggests ;) ) there's an
excellent supercollider book by Andrea Valle (in italian) on this page:
