"Digitech X-Series Bass Driver"

DigiTech Bass DriverPublished on 08/21/03 at 15:00
For a good while playing clean was fine for me, but a recent metal project demanded that I get some meaner sounds out of my bass. I went to Mother's Music in Edmonton, AB, Canada and picked out this bad boy. I originally was seeking a BOSS overdrive pedal, but the Digitech was cheaper and in my opinion, of better quality. As I recall it retailed for about $85 US.

This thing really is MEAN! The ability to tone, blend, and morph your overdrive effects to your heart's content is a dream for me and a minor annoyance to my bandmates. Great for grinding away at thrash metal tunes and filling in the low end (i.e. lead guitar is clean and you need that rumble beneath him). Even suitable for......

For a good while playing clean was fine for me, but a recent metal project demanded that I get some meaner sounds out of my bass.

As I recall it retailed for about $85 US.

This thing really is MEAN! The ability to tone, blend, and morph your overdrive effects to your heart's content is a dream for me and a minor annoyance to my bandmates. Great for grinding away at thrash metal tunes and filling in the low end (i.e. lead guitar is clean and you need that rumble beneath him). Even suitable for some fuzzy funk. Crank the distortion to the max and you can get some really evil noises with tapping, slapping and plucking.

I have but one complaint, but I feel it is a major one. The pedal is NOT sold with an AC adapter, which I think is just plain dumb. This thing is a power monster; it eats 9V batteries like they're going out of style. If you're going to get the pedal, the AC adapter really is a must. What pissed me off is that I had to return to Mother's Music 3 times before I got the appropriate adapter! Digitech should just sell the damned AC adapter and pedal as a complete package.

It's built like a tank: I've stomped on every part of this thing during shows and it still keeps kicking. As a result the paint is flecking off on the corners - a minor cosmetic worry. The control knobs are durable and have a solid feel to them. The rubber sole of the pedal and its weight do a good job of keeping it from slipping about on stage.

Almost a 5 out of 5. My beef about the AC adapter keeps my final rating at a 4 though. I would definitely recommend this pedal for metal/funk/hardcore applications, as it truly does provide wicked sounds. I play an Ernie Ball MusicMan Stingray (active) and a Fender Deluxe Special P-Bass (passive), and the pedal gives each more personality and power.

- What are the effects or types of effects available?
Overdrive classic pots of level, tone, blend (super useful to leave a% of the original sound of the bass output of the pedal) and a morph to assay the overdrive.
- What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
Digital output with two, one for the amp and one for direct console with a simulation of a 4x12 for this event.

- Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Not

- What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Only jack

- Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
pedal rather robust (rather heavy metal case), the system for the stack is a bit boring (as new Behring)

- Price

€ 80 bought at Thomann

UTILIZATION

Very simple, turn the pots and you can easily find his sound.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is pleasant and you just adjust the drive as you want. I personally does jamauis the morph and blend was past noon.
I play in a band and that's fine to go with a guitar on a punchy chorus, it looks like 2 guitars + bass. The sound fits in well unnmix group without taking the whole spectrum.

Edit: there is still a small loss of output of the pedal.

OVERALL OPINION

After a few REPEAT du'ilisation I am very happy with this pedal to € 80. Of the drive pedal can possess a knob mix with the original sound of the bass and to me this should be on all the pedals.

" Rather buy an analog distortion"

DigiTech Bass DriverPublished on 09/16/11 at 06:15

The pedal is solid.
The battery compartment requires a contraption like pen or jack to be opened which is not practical, but the pace or the batteries go, it's better to have the transformer (and a power strip because what will find an outlet available on a stage!)
4 settings:
- Adjusts the volume level
- Tone is a boost / cut treble
- The blend dose% of treated vs untreated sound
- Morph dose level of drive (the "grain size") that goes from the OD to Fuzz

Above all, this is a processor and not an analog circuit.

UTILIZATION

The manual is clear and easy to use pedal.
But I only takes 5 because the quality does not encourage its use just ...

SOUND QUALITY

This is where the rub ...

as we have here a processor and not an analog circuit, the sound is rather "synthetic" and frankly lack of heat.
Fortunately, we limit the case with the blend that allows you to add bass by adding the signal to dry signal. But suddenly, it can not target fat levels of fuzz.

We reach out ultra saturated sound that roars in the treble, but we can not guess it's a bass that is the cause because frankly it lacks scale. I manage to produce sounds that I hear with the ears, but I do not feel in the stomach.
For me, a bass that must be understood with the guts first.

Also, I do not know if it's because I use a universal transformer rather than pay more for the product sold by Digitech, but I have a lot of wind that passes through the amp when I activate the Indeed ...

OVERALL OPINION

After an initial discovery phase 2 years ago when I used it frequently enough to understand what I could do, I have been using it very occasionally ... for messing around ...

The blend is well regarded and I'm glad to have had the OD not too expensive for my weapons.
But today, I'll sell it to buy an OD with a dedicated analog circuit, ie large coucougnettes o)

I have not compared tons of low impact, but I feel it is at the level of multi-effects, no pedals level.

PS: I do not condone the side "school of fans' opinions, where everyone wins. I think it useful to post mixed reviews to alert the community of more and more of the stuff. Personally, this is the kind of advice I'm looking to make my choice, rather than the opinions written in the enthusiasm of a recent purchase. So sorry for those who love this pedal o)

Overdrive / distortion / fuzz
Numrique technology (batteries hello ^ ^)
It is prfrable to have a power supply.
No ditable (nan and then but what else!)
Only jack connections

Really strong case, but should not jump can be eh ^ ^

UTILIZATION

Good for the config is a distortion pedals of all that is more natural:

-Level (volume)
-Tone
-Morph (determination of distortion)

And the little knob bonus:
-Blend (shuffled allows the dry signal with that of the low distorted)

We soon found his sound, it will not take the head and it's great ...

Bha the manual .... I have not read, I came here before the pedals ^ ^
Nah I'm kidding, I read it, and even a log in......

Nah I'm kidding, I read it, and even a log in English that would have a little will understand.

SOUND QUALITY

It has a trs good sound, even on my humble Hartke 30W and my Squier Pb

Good on the other hand there are a lot of breath ... I knew I had read, but done with, no choice ^ ^. And it's not death either.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two days, I have not seen everything yet but I am super happy.

Only downside, the breath.

The report price is gnial quality. Bought 100 euros Thomman with its power supply.

I really advice to all bass players who want a versatile pedals in the distortion, cheap and without making head
