DigiTech XP300 Space Station
The Digitech space station is a digital floor pedal with a wide variety of effects. It requires AC power unlike the more common DC, it has one 1/4" input, two 1/4" outputs, a volume trim knob, two foot switches (bypass and bank), and one expression treadle.

UTILIZATION

Set up is simple with this pedal and getting a sound out of it is as easy as hitting the stomp switch. There are no user adjustable parameters for any of the effects with the exception of rocking the treadle. The manual is pretty much all you can expect with just a quick explanation of the effects and how to hook it up. It also describes what the treadle changes on each patch.

SOUND QUALITY

I mainly use this pedal in a guitar set up. Sound quality is an odd thing to comment on with this pedal since most of the sounds are meant to completely aletr your signal. The bypass however is terrible. There is an always active preamp connected to the volume trimmer and it is not a clear one at all. This pedal robs much of your high end when in bypass and can even clip at times. The switches are also pretty bad and can become intermittent easily. I always keep this box in a true bypass looper to solve both of these issues. My favorite sounds are the synth pads. They can be cheesy sounding at times but when used sparingly are great for creating sound scapes. They are basically cheaper versions of the sounds you get with higher end eventide boxes like the infamous U2 "shimmer" sound. It's a combined effect of massive delay, reverb, and pitch shifting in intervals like +5 and octave up. There are other useable sounds in it but without any user adjustable parameters they can be difficult to work into a tune.

OVERALL OPINION

For the money these used to cost it was hard to beat.I luckily bought my first when they were on clearance because they did not sell well and bought a second one for cheap as a backup when I noticed how bad it was made. Unfortunately they have been discontinued and the used prices are just all over the map. Kind of funny how that happens. If you can find one in good condition it's a great box to have around but be warned about the reliability of it. I have changed the switches in both of mine numerous times and have now modded them to use a sturdier, more reliable stomp switch.

DigiTech XP300 Space Station
Many effects

Synth-

-Octave

Reverse-

-Autowhammy

Ring-modulator

-Resonnator

-Arpegiotaor

UTILIZATION

We can no longer simple effects using the button scrolls up / down, a bypass button. Not a true bypass.
Opportunity to choose a bank of preference.
A stereo output which makes for some pretty good effects.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds are pretty terrible if you like the sounds very strange, there are a multitude of possibilities (with a whammy it gets terrible).
The synth-effects are 8 in number, in truth both are really cool. They play an octave, fifth, third ... Ideal for balancing large tablecloths.
-The effect octaver is useless.
The reverse-effects are terrible, with the expression pedal you discover a max sound
-The autowhammy, funny animal not obvious to use but it can be cool. It reacts to the attack, we attack as a good blow up every single note one octave higher or lower.
-The ring modulator are, there are several different styles, we will be happy.
The resonnator are really cool, they give a slight impression of having a sitar in the hands (with a whammy).
The arpeggiator-Alice in wonderland
-A volume pedal.

If you have the soul of a researcher of sounds this pedal is perfect for you, it offers many fields of sonic explorations. The only problem is the wind that generates the bike, it is imperative to have a loop pedal to bypass it if you falter your pedalboard. But she has a very honest life, and sounds pretty good age and especially the sounds are really out of it elsewhere: this is cool.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been 10 years since I and I exploited to the bone, really cool. Today I move on.
