According to Guitar World: "Although Vaughan didn’t use the Roland Dimension D in his live rig, it was a secret weapon in the studio, where he often added it to his guitar tracks during mixing. Vaughan first discovered the Dimension D while mixing his guitar tracks on David Bowie’s Let’s Dance, and he liked how its subtle chorus effect thickened his guitar sound without changing his natural tone significantly like other chorus effects frequently do. The Dimension D was used on the solos to “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and “Pride and Joy” on Texas Flood and most of the solos on Couldn’t Stand the Weather. During mixing, Vaughan would add the Dimension D effects himself via the effects send/return controls on the mixing console." March 2013 issue, page 65.more
Kee Marcello used Dimension D live when touring with Europe from 1988 onwards. You can see Kee's guitar tech point to it at 13:03 in the Milan 1989 soundcheck video. "I have a Dimension C or D - I get the two confused - but that sounds really nice with slightly distorted parts, but when I try it on the solo sound it does take away some of the bottom end" - Kee interview from Guitarist magazine, July 1989 issue.more
