Create Incredible Delays
With several control knobs and 2 simultaneous delays that can be manipulated, the DIG can create a range of different delay effects. The pedal features three different delay types to choose, the first being a modern 24/96 delay that create pure, high resolution digital delays with subtle dynamic processing. The second type is an early 80’s adaptive delta modulation, offering snappy, percussive delays, while the 12-bit pule code modulator creates dark, warm delays. Also featuring the ability to add modulation to the delay line, and five subdivisions, the DIG can deliver delays ranging from syncopated pulsing delays to spaced out echo trails.
Two Simultaneous Delays
Strymon’s DIG pedal uses two simultaneous delay together to give the effect plenty of atmosphere. By using the two delays together, the effect sounds full and round whilst offering the ability to create new sounds and styles. The master delay can range from 20ms to 1.6s, offering slapback type delays to huge echoes. The second delay follows closely behind the master delay, but can be altered via the control knobs to create intricate echoes and atmospheric repeats. The Second delay can be set to be independent from the first delay, to create a chorus or flange delay.
Controls and Secondary Functions
The Dig Digital Delay pedal features five control knobs with secondary functions to give you as much control over shaping the three different delays. The secondary functions can be accessed by holding down both footswitches and then turning the desired knob.
Time / Delay 1 Subdivision
The Time control is used to set the delay time for the master delay, whilst also acting as the master time control for both delays. In its secondary function, the time knob controls the master delays subdivision. In this mode the control sets the tap tempo subdivision for the master delay, when turned to the left the subdivision is a dotted eighth note, The centre provides a quarter note subdivision, and dialled to the right creates a half note subdivision.
Mix / Filter
The Mic control is used to dial in the amount of wet/dry mix for the master delay, whilst the secondary function becomes the filter control to dial in the feedback filter response. When set to the left in this mode, the pedal delivers a high cut filter response, while the centre position produces a flat response, and when dialled to the right, offers a low cut response.
Time 2 / Sync/Free Mode
The time 2 control sets the amount of rhythmic subdivision there is between the two delays, offering Triplet, Eighth, Golden Ratio, Dotted Eighth, Dotted Quarter. Its secondary function is used to enable and disable the time sync and subdivisions, allowing the second delay to be separate from the master delay.
Repeats / Delay 2 repeats
This control knob set the amount of repeats both delays have, whilst its second function only affects the second delay. When turned full to the right when using the secondary function, the number of repeats for the second delay ties with the number set for the first delay.
Mix 2 / Configuration
Mix 2 is used to control the amount of wet/dry mix for Delay 2, allowing you to adjust how much your guitar is affected by the second delay. The secondary function lets you alter the configuration of the delay signals routing, giving you the option to choose between series, ping pong, and parallel.
