With each pedal they create, Strymon take their research to the nth degree, finding the best effects of their type, studying them and crafting new versions for today’s players with options and tonal versatility that are above and beyond what anyone could expect. This is undeniably true with the Strymon DIG Dual Delay Guitar Effects Pedal with its two simultaneous, integrated delays and three rack delays with voices from the ‘80s and today, combined with an incredible amount of parameter options.
Delays and Modulations
The ‘80s saw some of the cleanest delays with incredibly complex and nuanced sonic shapes. Even now these delays are noted for their individualism, so it was here that Strymon looked when crafting the DIG Dual Delay’s tonality. The result was of Strymon’s investigative work brought two ‘80s sounds, sandwiching a modern addition. These are: an early '80s adaptive delta modulation, \ mid-'80s 12 bit pulse, and high-resolution 24/96 types.
With these delay types you can also selection how much modulation you want with the simple Mod switch, which gives three options: Off, Light, and Deep.
Two Delays – One Pedal
The Strymon DIG Dual Delay’s Time knob commands the simpler delay, allowing you to easily dial in 20ms – 1.6s of delay, and the same can be achieved by using the Tap Tempo footswitch. From here you can create long delays for additional atmosphere or short delays for slapback sounds.
The Time 2 knobs allows you to set the ratio between the two delays to one of five options, these being: triplet, eighth note, dotted eighth note, dotted quarter note, and the golden ratio. Alternatively you can disable the subdivision options and use this knob as another, independent free-running delay, the same as the Time knob mentioned above.
Each of these has its own Mix knob (Mix and Mix 2) to dial in as wet or as dry a signal as you require from each.
Config Options - Series, Parallel, Ping Pong
How the two delays of the Strymon DIG Dual Delay Pedal interact with each other is definable by the Mix 2 knob’s secondary function, Config (secondary functions are accessed by pressing and holding both footswitches together and turning the knob of the required secondary function).
The Config controls offer three options: Series, Parallel, and Ping Pong. Series feeds Delay 2 into Delay 1, similar to two pedals that are next to each other in a chain. Parallel leaves the Delays in an independent state, with Delay 1 being fed into the left channel, and Delay 2 to the right. Ping Pong allows each delay to act as a ping pong delay, which come together when both Mix knobs are turned up.
In addition to these, the amount of repeats for both delays can be set from the central Repeat knobs. You can also hold down the Tap footswitch to enable circular repeats, which repeat continuously, at a static volume, until Tap is released.
Expression Pedal Input
As with many of Strymon’s pedal, the Strymon DIG Dual Delay has an expression pedal input, which can be used to control any knob. Alternatively an external tap or Strymon’s Favourite pedal can occupy this input; the tap remotely setting tempo, or the Favourite switch being used to recall a favoured preset.
