RE: DigiTech DigiDelay pedal--cool!

Title: RE: DigiTech DigiDelay pedal--cool!

My rig isn't here at the moment, so I can't speak on the reverse delay. But I can speak regarding the sound mangling when cranking knobs.

It does the usual bending kinda sound when you turn, and fast turns back and forth will yield a pretty cool warble with occasional chirps - almost like squeaking sneakers on a basketball court, but down a couple of octaves (if that makes sense. . .it does in my head anyways).

Also, the 4 second loop is stackable. But again it's only 4 seconds. (Using Digitech's Audio DNA chips, so it's a 24 bit looper)

You can read some more reviews of the pedal at Harmony Central:

Gary, can you describe the reverse effect a bit? I've been bummed that the budget-level Boss pedals all have this reverse-plus-forward mix, and I'm looking for one that responds like the older Boss pedal (referred to as the Adrian Belew pedal by some). If I remember correctly (and this could have been some dream fragment...) it actually stored your sound and spit it back, backwards, when triggered by your next sound. Your description of the DigiTech reverse function - and any other details of this pedal (like its sound-mangling qualities when you crank a knob while playing,

fer'instance) - will surely be appreciated by all of us loopers on a budget. Douglas Baldwin, coyote-at-large coyotelk@optonline.net
