Unbeatable Sound Quality

Running a high powered digital sound processor the DD-500 is capable of creating professional delays with an audio resolution of 32-bit/96 kHz in a wide stereo image. Although operating through a digital signal process the DD-500 ensures it does not filter or alter your original analog guitar tone allowing you to retain your guitar tone and simply adding stunning digital delay to the output mix. Additionally the buffered bypass means you can enable delay carryover when switching the pedal on and off so delay trails are never cut abrubtly.

Impressive Features and Real-Time Control

With a large LCD screen at the heart of the DD-500 gives you real-time visualisation of your current effects settings and stored bank so you never accidentally use the wrong tone. Furthermore the added USB port to the rear of the unit allows patch backup and storage on your Mac or PC so you never lose your favourite delay settings. By default, the A, B, and TAP/CTL switches offer intuitive control for two patches, bypass, bank selection, tap tempo, and more. However, they can be customized to operate in alternate ways, such as providing top-level access to three different delay patches, or allowing you to use two patches at once for layered delay sounds. Instead of tap tempo, you're able to assign the TAP/CTL switch to various real-time functions like Warp or Twist for a wide range of expressive effects.
