DigiTech Archives - Pedal of the Day

DigiTech


Sometimes, you just know an effect is going to be rad based solely on its name, and today’s pedal proves that once again. The Dirty Robot from DigiTech is a mini-synth pedal, turning your guitar or bass into a close-to-full-blown synthesizer, without having to worry about a second pickup or interface to haul around. A powerful effect indeed, there’s lots to learn about it, so let’s dive right in! There are a bunch of...

Today’s wicked rad and partially insane pedal is of the delay variety – a shocker, I’m sure, given how much we love delay around here. This one really steps it up a notch, though, and introduces some great features to accentuate and exasperate your delayed tone, feel and sound. DigiTech has been immersed in the delay world for years now, and the TimeBender Digital Delay might just be their most complex and...

When I first got really into doing these reviews, reverb was sort of a take-it-or-leave-it effect. Now, before you chastise me too much, I have seen the proverbial light, and reverb has slowly crept up on my subconscious, and become one of my favorite effects to use. Especially when you have one like today’s pedal, the Polara Reverb from DigiTech, that’s loaded with a ton of options and a ton of great sounds as well. The...

Delays with lots of options, bells and whistles have always intrigued me, and many other players, I’m sure. I like these delays even better when they’re housed in a small enclosure, still offering the tones and sounds of some of the big boxes, but with a smaller pedalboard footprint. One I came across recently that met all of these criteria and more was the Obscura Altered Delay from Digitech. This pedal looks wicked,...

As a self taught guitar player, I’ve been trying to find ways to get some practice playing along to a rhythm track. CD’s, prerecorded backing tracks, loopers, you name it, I’ve tried it. They get old pretty quick, or my playing skill isn’t good enough. I started hearing about the Trio a few months ago and was pretty curious. I got the chance to get a demo of the pedal and was hooked.This thing is super user...

Chances are, you’ve heard of the infamous Whammy WH-1 Pitch Shifter pedal if you play guitar. Made popular by such guitar gurus as Tom Morello, The Edge, Steve Vai and more, it’s a staple of many famous guitar rigs, and capable of creating some of the most unique tones ever played, live or in the studio. The Whammy II was next generation pedal that followed the WH-1, and although it boasts the same internal chip and...

This Digitech Hardwire TR-7 Tremolo/Rotary pedal is amazing, with 7 different modes it’s a blast to tinker with. 4 basic knobs: Speed, Depth, Modify and the Type Selector knob. The first two knobs are self-explanatory, but the modify knob does many different things depending on what setting you’re on. It either changes waveform, tone, secondary speed, dry mix, chorus or vibrato mix or phase. You can get amazing sounds out...

First off, to be perfectly honest, I’m not entirely sure why the TimeBender from Digitech is not on the delay pedal A-list. This thing is super powerful, sounds great and is relatively inexpensive. DigiTech has a prolonged history of making incredibly innovative pedals. The TimeBender combines conventional effects with some nutty, yet still sweet delay effects. The interface is great, and the ability that it gives you to...

The Digitech XP 400 Reverberator pedal is one of the first reverb stompboxes with a expression pedal. It was a part of the “XP Series” along with the legendary XP 100 Whammy Wah and the extremely popular XP 300 Space Station. It’s extremely simple to use since you can’t change the actual programs. The only and main control you have, is over the wetness of the reverb and you can control it with the expression...

Not every guitar player uses a looper, but for those that do, it’s an essential ingredient in their setup. They can also tend to be quite large, sometimes overly complicated and difficult to figure out how to use, much less be reliable during a show. That’s where Digitech comes in, with the JamMan Express XT Looper pedal. One knob to control the output volume. That’s it. One tap of your foot records. The next tap...

The legendary Whammy pedal is the premier pitch-shifting pedal for any guitarist’s board, and it only gets better with time. In addition to the classic Whammy sound, we’ve added chordal Whammy pitch-shifting and true bypass. The Whammy can bring new depth to your artistry. Turn your solo into raging, rebellious screams of tone or tame your crowd with highly expressive, ambient chordal bends. Energize your audience with a scratchy note...

Alright, I gotta tell ya, I was a little skeptical about this Bad Monkey being a really good overdrive. I have played many sub-$50 overdrive over the years, and that has been exactly what they all sounded like: sub-$50 Overdrives. So, when I stated reading about this pedal and the ‘Badder Monkey’ mod from Humphrey Audio, I didn’t run out and get one immediately. But it kept showing up and getting rave reviews, and...
