Dimension 3D

Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension & Digital Space-DPublished on 07/13/11 at 14:06
This was Boss's second installment of the dimension chorus pedals even though it is label Dc-3. Boss tends to just put numbers after the acronym to give it a new name and compound on the existing platform.

The Boss DC-3 is not an analog pedal. Which the Boss Dc-2 was all analog. This is a digital platform and the tone is much different. The tone of this one is more processed naturally due to the digital aspects of the circuit. Also on this updated model you had four control knobs rather than four presets. Now you could tailor your tone better to match your playing style or current rig.

SOUND QUALITY

Chorus pedals in general add vibrato to the tone when you turn them up. This is a natural part of the chorus modulation effect. This one doesn't do that as much. It adds vibrato but very minimal amounts and in turn what you got was a more ethereal sound which came off as 3 dimensional and spacy sounding.

This pedal works for clean parts of your guitar. If you have a delay pedal or a clean tone and you need some sparkling lush chorus this is a good pedal for a airy tone. It also work great for the distortion channels and adds a bit of beef and depth to the tone. Great for 80's metal players who naturally use chorus to beef up their tone.

OVERALL OPINION

This pedal was discontinued back in 1993. You can still find them on the used market from time to time. They are cool and unique sounding pedals that are all on their own for chorus sounds. There isn't anything out there that matches the tone of this thing so if you are used to chorus pedals this might sound different then you are used too. In a good way of course.

Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension & Digital Space-DPublished on 10/04/09 at 16:59
The Boss DC-3 guitar pedal comes under two different names - either the Digital Dimension or the Space-D.  I believe that there isn't much difference between the two pedals, but I have only used the Digital Dimension pedal so I can't say this for show.  The pedal is an analog one and is kind of a chorus/vibrato/flanging type pedal.  It isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

Like all Boss pedals, the Boss DC-3 is very user friendly and easy to use.  The pedal has parameters for effect level, EQ, rate, and depth in the form of knobs.  Everything is clearly labeled and extremely easy to follow.  The manual is put together well, but it definitely isn't necessary unless you are...…

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the Boss DC-3 is definitely unique, although at the same time you will recognize some familiar sounds.  I haven't really ever seen any pedals that are the same sounding as this one, so if you try out the pedal and like what it can do, this is pretty much your only choice to get a pedal just like this one.  This being said, of course you can get other modulation effects like chorus and flanger which are similar, but not all in one pedal like this one.  I use the pedal with a Fender Strat or a Gibson SG and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb for recording, and I can definitely get some pretty awesome sounds within this set up.


OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Boss DC-3 for a few years on and off when I have access to it, as I do not own this pedal for myself.  I definitely enjoy using the pedal simply because it is a unique blend of sounds and are hard to replicate elsewhere.  The price of the pedal isn't isn't all that expensive, but since it is no longer being made and hasn't been made in a while, they can be hard to find and you will have to pay a bit more than for a normal pedal since it is rare.  If you are interested in vintage Boss pedals or even just interested in messing around with some new pedals, the Boss DC-3 is a great pedal to look into.

Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension & Digital Space-DPublished on 07/05/07 at 07:10
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a Chorus, it was replacing in its time Dimension C (analog DC-2)
The first digital chorus Boss, if I'm not mistaken.

Made from March 1988 to August 1993.
Made in Japan, of course.

This chorus wore two name under an electronic meme:
1- Digital Dimension
2-D Digital Space


4 Knobs
-Effect Level
-EQ
-rate
-depth
-1 In
-2 Out (stereo)

USE

Turn the knobs and see the changes.
Simple and effective.

SOUND QUALITY

Digital couleure is not as marked as current models (CE-5 / CH-1), it gives me a very good point.

It sounds clear, limpid subtle air, spacial but never cold.
A chorus that sounds really apart is its strong point.
Typed? yes ......…

It sounds clear, limpid subtle air, spacial but never cold.
A chorus that sounds really apart is its strong point.
Typed? yes ... and no ..... hard to say.

Chorus is delicate, subtle, precise.
This is a chorus of ambience, it spatialized sound, it adds dimension.
The DC-3 is very similar to the chorus of the TC-SCF (old I specify, not re edition).

Even putting the bottom knobs sound does not seem too "tortured / detune" it's still very musical and exploitable.
With lower settings, the effect is present and ... Abscent difficult to décrire..faut try it, it's the best way to realize this.
But once deactivated, then no prob, making realize that it is disabled.
Some like a chorus that is present, who "hear" well.
I understand you because like me when using a Boss CE-2, CE-3 Small Clone (among others).
We love this creamy presence, velvety, thick.

With the DC-3 grain chorus is completely different but equally good, it does not sound cold despite the digital technology.

Moreover it is very transparent and does not blow, no non dynamic of loss and is not slightly comic bass like a good old CE-3.

I possess a chorus
Boss CE-2
Boss CE-3
EHX Small Clone
HomeBrew Electronics THC
Rocktron Tsunami Chorus
TC Electronics original SCF (sold but used a long time)

The DC-3 is left of the best he has given me to hear (chorus completely different), but sounding incredibly well.

Nothing to do with the big brothers Vintage grain level, but there have not with the current CE-5 and CH-1.
THE DC-3 explode them both fingers in the nose, it's hot, the base grain is much better qualitée, nothing to see, despite the parentage of the technology used.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I tried a lot and have a chorus, and the DC-3 is left of the best chorus ever.
I think using it with a classic chorus one and the other connected to a Boss-LS-2, to enjoy two different grains and couleures for clean sounds.

A subtle chorus, discreet and delicate, dimentionnel, in-room who brings an air sound, spatial audio and a more vintage EC type-2 in order to benefit from two completely different couleures

Unlike the analog references, it is not thick, velvety and deep.
No, but it is not cold at all, however, and its grain is beautiful and very delicate.
Offers no problem as good chorus even see better than the TC-SCF period, is nevertheless it is "only" Boss.

A great chorus, a must is personal and subjective, but for me one of the best if not the best digital format chorus stomp box.
And for good chorus, in principle I am rather picky and quite difficult.

Try it, proves to be a killer in stereo with an electro-acoustic

It is unacceptable that Boss will re not publish such pedals, I do not understand!
they probably sell a lot given the qualitée sound delivered by this chorus.
there is a safe bet that sales of CE-5 / CH-1 would collapse.

Wonderful!

Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension & Digital Space-DPublished on 12/03/11 at 16:44
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is a chorus effect, released in 1988 under the name of Digital Dimension, then changed its name a year later for Digital Space, but with the same fabrication. At this point we do not know the why, Boss of reserves shall decide the exclusivity of sales in Japan, and we released the Super Chorus CH-1 to replace the past.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple, you just understand what the buttons are described in English ... For the user manual is not complicated at all, I did not have, but you can the download, as all textbooks Boss on the Boss website.

SOUND QUALITY

Honestly! I have a prt first Super Chorus CH-1 I test with an electro-acoustic mandolin, and I found this trs INTERESTED ... I have to buy me this DCID CH-1, but in doing research on the chorus, I saw the DC-3 pedals and attracts me.

Comments taient logieux, and having an effect that is warmer than the record of the CH-1 m'intressait. I finally cracked when he saw a DC-3 for about 100 euros, which seemed to be pay the price for others in this section of the opinion. It is certainly a double CH-1, but since it does not manufacture that for 5 years, it makes much more rare, hence the price lev. (While some believe they have a gold mine in the hands and n'hsitent not put the sale price ... DLIR)

And comparing it with the CH-1, had really nothing to see. The CH-1 is more acute in more mtallique made the DC-3 is actually more rounded, warmer. I couple with a T-rex Tonebug Reverb (I love the pedals at his, and look at that body reminds me of a 1950 Chevrolet Bel Air ... Well ... all his trips .. .), on my mandolin is beautiful!

I also test an electric guitar and frankly ... I cried! Yes, yes, c'tait so beautiful that has driven me all * sniff *

I can not speak in technical terms, it has a little more like it, and less like a. .. I speak with my heart, with my motions, and when a sound, the music moves me, I cry, and I know it's just beautiful ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month just prs, I have not tried other models from the Boss CH-1, but I have some cost in video. I choose my effects based on what I am looking for feedback from others, and the sound reproduction that I hear on youtube when I have not the possibility to test them in stores. As I said, everything goes through the motion, and indeed some touches me aurally (c'tait the case of the T-Rex Tonebug reverb too), and others do not ...

It's not always easy to be well aware of a video as we see more often that others do the pedals, that would like to see what it can do ... I will like to test a TC Electronic Chorus Corona, but what I saw and heard I was not really convinced ...

For the report quality price, pfff in 20 years I find that the price of dja pedals has augment. When I do the transaction in France, I remember that c'tait as much in my "young" time. May be that moving the euro has gone through the APRS but what I see there are many pedals "base" which costs between 120 and new 150 euros, see, I is a super expensive! But it's true that I jou for years without the use of effects, so I too followed the march.

But if we look at the market price of the opportunity or we can have a new aspect of pedals, with box in very good state (and sometimes the record) between 80 and 110 euros (less when the new pedals cost about 80 euros in store), I think the price around 100 euros is correct. But should not go further, like 200 euros, it carrment flight! .. Finally I say is, I know his original price of 1989 ... But given that gnral is found around 100 euros, being prciser it is "Made In Japan" does not justify (my opinion) to double that price, since the DC- t have all three factories in Japan before production can s'arrte in 1993 ... There's no DC-3 "Made In Tawan!"

I remake that choice without hsiter! In fact I soon again, for APRS have to buy a Digital Dimension, I found 20 euros cheaper for a Digital Space. As I am curious, I wanted dja see if there was a diffrence between the 2 MODELS, but aa much the air of being the same thing. As has become INTERESTED against the use of two at the same time, or with the same rglages or with rglages DIFFERENT, because ADI provides a more scale (forcment 2 is better than), more noise out, and I look forward to assembling all that has to see double stro .. need a little tinkering in the connections, but I am a sr that's worth:-P

And you never know, as this is no longer manufactures pedals, if I loose, I will have always a spare:-D

I take this opinion to thank the friendly member of Audio Fanzine who sold me my DC-3 Premire, c'tait excellent action ;-)
