The BOSS DD-8 Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal is the most wide-ranging and feature-rich BOSS stompbox ever created. Loaded with more of everything, sounds, delay time, controls and connectivity it fits in beautifully into any existing mono or stereo setup and gives more colour, texture and capability to your sound.
Stunning Stereo Sounds
The DD-8 has a diverse selection of delays for you to delve into. Whether you prefer clean digital, warm analogue and tape sounds, or futuristic modulation and shimmer sounds there's something available for you here. New for this iteration is the Warm type for softer, echo tones, a +RV which mixes delay and Reverb and the GLT, a rhythmic delay sound that is great for glitchy, rhythmic delay effects. With full stereo the DD-8 gives you complete I/O support with a choice of three output modes. Default provides linked parallel delays on the left and right channels, maintaining tue balance of stereo, there's a panning mode for ping-pong style delay effects and a wide stereo mode for enhanced depth and breadth of sound.
The real-time delay option of the DD-8 lets you tap in tempos with the onboard pedal switch and control the Warp and GLT modes for unique expressive effects. You can add one or two footswitches to unlock more creative possibilities including on-demand tap tempo, extended looper control and the unique Twist effect for soaring echo sounds. You can also use an expression pedal for continuous control of level, feedback or delay time and even manipulate them all at once. There's a built-in looper that's great for practice, checking sounds at gigs and creating on-the-fly sounds whilst performing. All functions can be controlled from the onboard switch as well as being operable via external footswitches.
The inputs and outputs of the DD-8 have a variety of smart setup options, allowing you to calibrate the pedal for any function by connecting cables in different ways. A multitude of mono and stereo connections are available, including discrete dry and effect outputs for wet/dry setups. It's possible to defeat the dry signal entirely, great when you want delay only sounds in a parallel effects loop.
The BOSS DD-8 Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal is the most advanced delay in the BOSS Compact series, full of studio-quality sounds and modes that make it the most feature-rich in its class. Sure to become a pedalboard staple the variety of sounds on offer here are stunning, while the functionality will have your creative juices in full flow.
