"I honestly can’t recall all of them.I have two Sears Craftsman tool cases loaded with pedals, and so I just took a bunch out and went with what worked best. I do remember using some cool, weird green DigiTech synth pedal a bit, and a Dunlop Zakk Wylde wah. Dunlop made me a cool one covered with rhinestones to use onstage."more
Being able to work with the changes in guitar frequencies is something that results in an incredible sound that takes us back to the 70s. Considered by many to be the industry standard! You want your music to sound as unique as you are and DigiTech gives you the power to create that sound wrapped up in a rugged metal chassis with dual wet and dry outputs. 7 stellar sound types; Mix, Range, Sensitivity, and Type controls;
I exclusively use modes 1 and 2. 1 is the classic envelope up sound. Quacking for days. 2 is followed by a fuzz a la Bootsy's "I'd Rather Be With You" solo. An overdrive in front of this pedal really brings out the wetness even more. 4 stars because the envelope filter sounds are pretty good, but the rest of the options are next to useless.
Envelope filters have always been my favorite effects pedal. This one is really a wild psychedelic freak box.
It delivers a matrix of 7 different synth effects -- envelope up, envelope down, synth tone 1 (opening envelope) , synth tone 2 (closing envelope), filter sweep 1 (SynthTalk), filter sweep 2 (SynthTalk with inverse filter envelope) , and continuous automated wah.
Plus -- CIT cabinet modeling and control knobs governing trigger sensitivity, synth attack, filter sweep shape, cut-off frequency, frequency envelope, speed, and wah range.
I tested this at the Guitar Center pedal station, running an electric guitar through it.
After playing about 3 chords, I was convinced that I had to get this right now to add to my ever expanding Str8 Sounds equipment. The sales guy said, "That was fast!"
Honestly, I wish I had four more of these pedals so that I can get every sound possible out of it, but money restricts that option. There are so many options to this pedal, but I usualy use it on the 3rd effect with the other knobs down to zero. This gets an interesting fuzzy sound.
