In contrast, we try to use the sampler mode, the problems appear. Lopsided ‘s user review 5 Like Tweet Submit Email.

I 20000 pretty noob at this but I know I can resolder it I already had an analog delay an Ibanez ADso I was pretty used to this kind of sounds. Raju Solanki 16 April at Here is a braindump: Unfortunately I managed to slip with an oscilloscope probe and shorted two pins on the DRAM chip, and killed an input pin. I messed around with compounder trimpot as I thought that may be distorting – no improvement. So once in Trigger mode, you must press the switch on the left to launch a sample.

At this point things appeared to work digiitech, except the delay was very distorted and noisy. The footswitches were also unreliable, so I replaced the microswitches. This just needed some soldering digiech bring it back. Another thing to note kanual that the pedal off the sound for a short period of time when using the switch After replacing pots I found that delay time wasn’t working because of broken trace, I ran some Kynar wire to restore it.

This was in the worst condition. Someone had already taken a crack at fixing it, it was missing knobs and a digitecu panel. This pedal may well be digital, it can become self-oscillation, which is very cool. First you must get in Sample mode which works like Normal modeswitch the pedal, play a phrase when that phrase is repeated, using the switch on the left to bring it into memory. This a soft-start for the 9V supply on the PDS I traced signals back from the delay range switch to a 74HC04 hex inverter, which looked dead.


Hi, This 2 second delay is a ton of fun!

A surprising amount of 90s and early 00s delays can’t smoothly pitch-shift recorded audio when playing with the delay times, and glitch or “jump” somewhere through the pot travel.

The delay loop in the PDS series is basically some ripple counters counting through memory addresses and resetting when the end of memory is reached. Tweaking these delay pots brought the delay back to 1 second and adjustable through the full range of the delay pot.

Already, two seconds, it is obviously too short to sample anything. More on that below. I swapped this chip over from the other and it worked. These delays could be built from scratch with new parts today, and they are very repairable. The sampling modes also weren’t quite right, trying to trigger samples would switch the pedal into bypass mode or sometimes do nothing at all.

Digital Delay, yes, but vintage digital delay!

It must be pressed again each time you want to start another one. Unfortunately my “Mix” Pot snapped off a couple a months ago and I lost it. This means they get lost, and I have never actually seen one. Ja zehre a Chance that i could send oh to you for repair? If it is used as a delay pedal, it is very simple: This one was partially working when I got it. With the technology of the time.


Write a user review Digietch for a user review. Sometimes I had to iterate and go back and forth between the two sets of pots. Ram Chauhan 28 June at For now the phrase will be repeated ad infinitum.

The best picture I can find online shows a single 18 pin not 16 pin IC, but the label isn’t legible. I replaced with long-leg alpha pots. Manuak 1Meg trimmer for clock frequency was also broken off.

On paper there’s nothing too amazing – mid s 8-bit delays with 1, 2 or 8 if you can afford the PDS second maximum delay times. Posted by krivx at Two knobs to adjust the volume of input and output, a switch to toggle between Normal, Trigger and Sample, three pots to dihitech the mix, the Regen and Delay Time, and finally a switch to toggle between the last three patterns of delay: Delay time is varied by changing the frequency of the digutech clock signal that shifts digital samples into and out of DRAM memory.

Delay time is adjusted by 3! The has something similar. Or do you have an idea where i ps Let oh repair? It was the beginning of the digital, so its still a big hue analog repetitions are quite dark.
