A strange one, indeed. BOSS was obviously looking to attract a niche crowd with this distortion pedal that incorporates two different circuits. Circuit one is pretty much a stock analog distortion while circuit two provides an additional five (FIVE!) different non-modes for doubling and chorus effects coming from newly discovered digital planets.
Doubling one: REALLY REALLY short delay for an almost slap back echo
Doubling two: REALLY Short delay for an almost slap back echo, the mode I use second most
because I really seems to be the sweet spot and hit what the developers were trying? Doubling Three: Short Delay for short slapback-esque sound Chorus one: Light Chorus (this was made in the eighties, right?) Chorus two: Light Flange. To my ears this just sounds too good to not use this one the most.
This pedal is ALOT of FUN to play! one is able to create all sorts of aquanet sounds from this monster and it's a BOSS, so it'll be around forever...and all of your friends will laugh at you once you tell them the name...Digital Metalizer, by BOSS?!?
