    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 05/31/14 at 05:33
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The effects are simple: the delay, and a little looper well hidden too. This will super slapback to Floydiens effects. I am really not in favor of the Boss brand (this is a good brand, but without much personality. Useful for studio musicians who must have all the cards in hand), I appreciate the DD7. Used with single 9V connector.

    UTILIZATION

    Used obtained without manual, it uses fast! Few days to explore and use becomes very simple. I often keep warm for a delay to Thee Oh Sees, and it works wonderfully. The config is clear, even if live I think it is better not to fiddle: you risk to screw it up. Everything is simple, because it is direct: level, feedback, time, and type of de…

    UTILIZATION

    Used obtained without manual, it uses fast! Few days to explore and use becomes very simple. I often keep warm for a delay to Thee Oh Sees, and it works wonderfully. The config is clear, even if live I think it is better not to fiddle: you risk to screw it up. Everything is simple, because it is direct: level, feedback, time, and type of delay. The only thing that took me a long time is the hold I never imagined that it could serve as a looper! Well, it is not the main function and it is not very developed, but it's good to know!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are effective and realistic, all depends on how you take them. Make it sound very realistic is easy, but it can quickly turn to the imagination the most total. Endless to Pink Floyd sounds clear, this is not my cup of tea, I avoid them. To be blunt: the pedal is really easy to use, but it is also fast to miss (especially live) if it decides to change its parameters during the song.

    The most interesting features:
    - Modulate (well then you do what you want baby). Feedback and delay time to 13h = awesome.
    - Hold (looper hidden, etc.).

    Less interesting:
    - The reverse probably 5min funny but difficult to use and unrealistic
    - Analog? Not so including interest, but it may come, it is revealed little by little.

    I use it with my Fender Classic Player Jazzmaster 2008, something like, a Vox VT15, it sounds. In my stuff, it adds up to a TC Electronic Polytune black, TC Electronic Spark Mini Boost (a wonder by the way), an EHX Pulsar and a Big Muff, it will soon be replaced by a Way Huge Swollen Pickle.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few weeks, the purchase was intended for a few months to complete a fairly lightweight pedalboard. I watched a lot of delays, really ... even if it hurts to admit it, because Boss and me is not it, this is really nice DD7. Very helpful, be careful though: when you tasted, hard to get to play without ... After a DD3 would probably work just as well, to see if you really use all the features!

    Other delays seemed all too pro, too "pretentious" to be exact.

    The decline is (a little), yes I'll buy again in a heartbeat. The price is strong but less than 100 € on occasion it's a good deal and a good choice.

    As its name suggests, this Boss DD-7 offers digital delay effects.
    In addition to the 4 presets digital delay (50, 200.800 and 3200 ms), there is a "Hold" function that lets you record loops of a maximum duration of 40 seconds, a "Analog" mode supposed to emulate an analog pedal a "Modulate" mode which adds a chorus, and finally a "Reverse" mode.
    The pedal has stereo and has 3 inputs and 2 outputs classic jack format. An external footswitch can be connected to the "Tempo / EXP" entry.

    Settings, as 4 tiny knobs allow to act on the mix (especially the volume of repetitions), the number of repetitions, the delay time and the selection of different modes.
    We have a compact pedal that offers a lot there.

    UTILIZATION

    Setup is simple as long as you know what kind of pedal. The many functions allow a significant number of sounds and settings to show both progressive and efficient. The manual provided is clear and comprehensive. This pedal does not offer any storage and buttons will not be easier to handle on stage in a reasonable time. Other delay pedals are more relevant because of knobs provided both larger and more accessible.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effects, quality, offering a wide range. But again, as it proves impossible to manipulate the knobs at the bottom it will be difficult, if not impossible, to make quick changes to the mix, the number of repetitions or time delay. In the studio, it will be less detrimental but on stage, I do not really see any solutions to change anything instantly. But back to the sound quality! It is in very good and it is indeed a very, very rare times that I found in a digital effect sounds really satisfactory. The "Analog" mode does the trick and convincingly emulates the sound of an analog delay pedal. In general, the quality of repetitions is in very good: the sound is defined, does not sound synthetic and retains a very correct precision. In "loop (Hold function" mode), the sound retains its intelligibility but it will mainly for training because the rendering quality is still not great. Mode "Reverse" I'm disappointed, well below that offered by Jam Man Delay for example, it shows little use and lack of clarity and definition.
    In stereo, the effect is very convincing and lends a surprising extent. On this last point, the pedal excels.
    I use this pedal with different Gibson Les Paul.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I acquired this purpose hand and use it for about 1 year. It complements, offering more substantial time delay, my MXR Carbon Copy. Useless, of course, wait for the Boss has the grain so warm and pleasant but the MR is absolutely ridiculous, far from it. I have not tested other digital delay because it is above all the right opportunity presented itself that made me buy the Boss DD-7. I would have surely not its new price of 150 €. But at 70 €, there is really nothing to complain about.
    Overall this pedal is good, usable and offers great sound. The reverse mode is not terrible, too bad! The point that I regret concerning ergonomics at least average because, again, the settings once made can hardly be modified game situation

    SOUND QUALITY

    We find the very next "right" boss effects, we can not say that it is indeed a living, but it is happening all at once. By coupling it with an analog delay, we get all kinds of delays imaginable. Its advantage is to offer long delays typed pink floyd, that all analog delays can not do.

    I used it mainly on a guitar, a keyboard, theremin, bass once ... It's very transparent.

    After mistrust side "gadget" some effects which I doubt the musical relevance.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for half a decade, it is essential to put an atmosphere on stage. This is not an especially affordable delay, but it allows the pro or semi-pro to have a Swiss army knife of delay. Memories are missing in my opinion, as one can find on the X4 flashback or models by 4 in line 6.

    but yes I would do this choice because it is a must :) and robust, as bosses can.

    The delay to the top

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 09/30/13 at 08:56
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    A delay with several modes including reverse, analog, hold (40sec loop), and time mode.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to find the sound you want, also to be honest I have not even read the manual!!
    The manual is very readable but I assure you it is not necessary so intuitive.
    I think in the future I'll make me a foot switch for tap tempo, as it need to press the pedal for two seconds to beat the rhythm.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is the pedal that I wanted, it is what I play.
    I had some reservations with the tc flashback that the passage is also very good, but the balance has tilted towards Boss.
    There are many different opinions on these two pedals in my eyes are the same.

    I use a little all modes, with a preference for analog delay and 3200.800.
    The hold mode is very good so, I sold my solo jamman I did not operate.
    Some say it is too digital, I is not like what the tastes and colors!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very satisfied with my purchase, I think she will stay for a while on my pedalboard as it convinced me.
    Unless of course so the Boss DD-8!!!

    3. SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
    Which instruments do you use?
    Which ones you prefer, you hate?

    Well, there must be clear, it sounds rather digital accurate. For a small module analog, it's not really the same. I like to combine the two and clarity of the signal does not bother me, I sometimes chaining to Rondat (all in front), it does too. Analog mode is not too bad, made a little natural + mode with a little help sometimes chorus (I have no chorus). So if you are not looking for a tape echo sound is ok.

    + / -1 Year
    I like the format Boss (though I do not like the sounds of distos Boss) strength.
    Digital sound may offend.
    Q / P Boss always correct in relation to sustainability.
    I got it in exchange for another delay so it goes.
    When buying new? I may be + for Electro Harmonix Deluxe MM.
    But for its versatility, compactness is not bad.
    I had two Ibanez Dlays DL7, DL10, a Digitech X series, delays Rack (digitech artist 2120, great, but galley edition), a small ECHOTEC (not bad), the Berhinger.
    General Notice: 7-8, good delay, but no more. Character is the top combination with a Deluxe MM or tape echo (not the same price and I even talking about congestion and maintenance) or El 'Capistan (this figure too). In short, a good pedal, but no real personality is.

    A legend

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 08/12/12 at 11:49
    Besides the Boss DD-3, the DD-7 has to be one of the most recognized digital delays on the planet. You'll see this on almost every guitar player's pedalboard, regardless of the level he or she is at. Players ranging from home rockers to arena guitar heroes.
    It does this because it's sturdy build and is really easy to use. You get an effect level, feedback time, delay time and mode switch. On top of that, you get an expression pedal input on the side, along with stereo inputs and outputs. Of course you can still run it using mono only, but also from mono input, to stereo output. No wonder it's a favorite amongst so many people!

On top of that, you get an expression pedal input on the side, along with stereo inputs and outputs. Of course you can still run it using mono only, but also from mono input, to stereo output. No wonder it's a favorite amongst so many people!

    UTILIZATION

    Tweaking this legend is easy. The effect level knob (labeled as E. Level) is essentially a mix knob, controlling how loud the delay (echo actually) signal is. The feedback knob (labeled F. Back) controls the amount of repeats you get. Pay attention, that if you crank it up to much, the pedal will oscillate. Some find this effect useful, whilst others prefer not to reach that level of repeats.
    The delay time controls how long each repeat is. Delay time is then controlled by the mode knob, determining what range you can choose the repeat length.

    As if this wasn't enough. With the DD-7 they give you an analog emulation mode along with a modulation mode. Analog mode is rather self explanatory, while the modulation mode ads a tiny bit of chorus effect to the delay signal. Reverse mode is also available on the DD-7 plus a hold model, giving you 40 seconds of loop time (in mono).

    Finally you have the Tap Tempo mode. Hold down the pedal for two seconds and the mode switches to Tap Tempo. The expression jack is connected directly to the tap tempo.



    SOUND QUALITY

    I actually only used the analog mode once I discovered it. But man does that one sound good! The sound of the delay pedal is widely determined by the processing chip installed, this is also what sets the different delay pedals apart from each other. Does this one then stand out compared to others - hard to tell. It depends upon the ears listening to it.
    It's not the newest digital delay any more, so it may not sound as good as the new digital ones like TC Flashback delay etc.


    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all, you can't go wrong with the DD-7. You can find them for a decent price on the used marked, as it is actually rather old, but still extremely useful. After all, so many persons around the world use it, so I think it's a pedal that's worth holding on to.

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 03/10/11 at 15:00
    This is the white Boss Digital Delay model DD-7 delay pedal. Boss has in the past had the DD-3, DD6, but really won with the DD-7. All the features of the DD-3 with tap tempo, longer delays and a looping option which allows you to loop something for up to 40 seconds.

    Reverse does exactly what is says it does.

    Analog gives it sort of a quieter/dirty delay tone similar to the great analog and tape delays.

    None besides having to buy a footswitch to use the Tap Tempo option, but it only set me back $25 and an extra patch cable so I won't fuss too much.

    Great. I will sound like a broken record, but Boss builds very durable and giggable quality gear. Is giggable even a word?

    Plenty of delay options for $150 in one pedal with a format you are already familiar with.

    Who does not need the manual if it is known to use a delay is fairly intuitive. OK, you have to press 2 seconds to initiate the tap tempo (the Lumire changes from red to green and then flashes to the rhythm of tap) there mode "hold" with his looper but I have no manual and I n 't have not lost.
    I immediately found the sounds I needed.

    Note:
    - The effect level at noon THE FIRST rptition that takes place shortly prs at the same level as the incoming sound. So that if we go further with the knob, the level of rptition is stronger than the incoming sound. It's a little weird (on other pedals o there's a blend commme EHX, it's actually the sound of that is down)
    - Tap tempo gives rptitions double compared to the tap. It may stepfather curious, but it's really cool actually. Because when you "tap" in fact gnrale you type on the rate of the battery. On other pedals, the tap is exactly the time delay. In fact it Gnant. Well I know if I'm clear but must try.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Absolutely nickel: classic mode numrique transperant, the analog is friendly, may be even more true that some analog pedals that cause attnuation darker marks too.
    Mode chorus is "weird" I'm not using it. The reverse mode is fun but as the attack is not cut (o one could be that the reverse) is not useful trs.
    I like the versatility of sound, which allows to find quickly and a good delay, to change depending on mood.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since yesterday, I compared with analog pedals (EHX Memory Toy) I did not like being too difficult and brand rgler c'tait and before the multi-effect (who did the job, but c'tait rgler and no hot tap ...)

    Remains affordable for me to OCCAZ, and will remain on my pedalboard.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Unfortunately, no history of DD6, I can not compare this dernire. The sound of plutt DIFFERENT modes is good. The standard is dlais trsfidles what is sent in between (and tonnament can be "better" than my Eventide Time Factor, which would tend to shine naturally rptitions easily). The reverse can DLIR well, the method is similar trs trs well, and rest a little better than my Dfine Maxon AD9 Pro (which is quickly his "pteux"). Modulate mode is fun, not to say Gentillet. It's not bad, but my ears sounds somewhat artificial and, moreover, can not rgler the depth and speed of the modulation, then it quickly becomes indigestible.

    I compare my long DD20. So forcment is lost in the DD7 versatile with what we earn in place on the pedalboard. The best on the bypass estbien DD7, the dynamics of signalne loses almost nothing, even disables.
    The crushing of potentiomtre delay time can make zoins zoins laugh that will make fans of post-... (Put here your style of music gnrique). And may well go on easily as feedback, so please have these same people ;-)

    We can tap in accder temp leaving the pedals supported two seconds (convenient, but live to muzzle break the heads into the air like me) :-)

    Once we trouvune expression pedals compatible with DLIR may well (and unlike what I have said, we can CONTRL paramtres with the three p dale of expression, even simultanment). For my part, I gre the effect level and rptitions, which allows me to switch from one sound with a short time limit and few Submitted (more like rverb) a super long time limit and Submitted (for groundwater or for chorus).

    Looper function is funny, and diffrent possible connections (depending on how you connect with the input and output, we can double the time limit time, which will appeal to post-rockers (though they , I believe that a fixette)

    A small dception however: there is a spillover function (when the rptitions continue disables pedals), but my surprise (and, contrary to DD20), the feedback s' skin after a few seconds even if we have placed 100%.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bah, well this is drlement pedals. Its size, the possibility to connect an expression pedals, easy to get the sound of flies very easy (well yeah, that's the advantage of having 4 knobs ) and its gnral make it replaces my TimeFactor and my DD20 in my usual rig (TF appeared from time to time when I have the sounds spacial trs / spciaux but has become increasingly rare). It can stepfather thundering about a Boss pedals, but I remain silent in the face rapportpossibilits / size. truly a concentration of technology we like to AF (I told you that this statement would thunder for the Boss ...).
    DCID, Boss is always placed in the compact segment dlais my opinion, even if no apprcierait a price slightly infrieur (120 euros would be really nickel).

    great delay, as always dear boss!

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 07/13/11 at 02:37
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    it's a digital delay, with eight different types of delay (MODE) which I will explain below, all of very good quality. the pedal is very solid, ready to brave the blows of tatane (see ranger for progressive metal ... like me: D). the pedal has a good mouth, and not encumbered by unnecessary gadgets.

    UTILIZATION

    configuration is very simple.
    there are four buttons:
    - "E.level" that allows us to gauge the amount of repetitions.
    - "F.back" to choose the number of repetitions.
    - "D.time" to choose the time to recurrence.
    - "Mode" to choose among types of delay available.

    the pedal has two input and two outputs (mono / stereo) plus an input for tap tempo and expression pe…

    - "F.back" to choose the number of repetitions.
    - "D.time" to choose the time to recurrence.
    - "Mode" to choose among types of delay available.

    the pedal has two input and two outputs (mono / stereo) plus an input for tap tempo and expression pedal.

    the pedal is very intensive batteries, so expect a standard 9V power supply.

    a built-in tap tempo can be activated in two seconds remaining supported on the pedal. I think it's great for troubleshooting, but it's just to help out pasque live is absolutely not practical!

    SOUND QUALITY

    then noted that I use it on bass!
    -The first 4 modes are the same as the DD-3, ie, a delay very clean, precise, well defined. it sounds modern, it's not the analog! but the result is really great. Note that the only difference between these four modes is the delay time of delay ranging from 4 "slices of time" (I understand). the first is a long delay, the second is shorter ... etc
    -Then come the "HOLD" mode, which is made instead, gives you a looper to loop 45 seconds max. the superimposed layers (how? I do not know ... but a lot!). there is a slight modification in the loop, a little "dirty" (I say dirty, not saturated!) giving a small effect "vintage" very light eh! it is super convenient to work is expensive, call etc. ... was a feature I really like.
    And come-mode "MODULATE" which is actually a chorus + delay. it's nice, but I was not too useful.
    -Mode "ANALOG" when with him, is actually an emulation of the DM-2 analog delay of the same brand. not having tested it I do not know the sound is faithful, but in any case it was the grain of analog delay, a filthy can, with repetition that it had disintegrated progressively. is good, but I used too much.
    -Finally, the last mode, "REVERSE", which reproduces the sound of a tape echo passed backwards. Personal love is great! it is hard to master, but the result is very musical, I used often. this is my favorite Presset.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year. I try this model, and I immediately realized it was that I needed!
    I particularly like: 2,5,8 modes, simplicity of the pedal, the output expression that I will soon be useful, the look, the tiny size, strength.
    I like less, the tap tempo built, unmanageable live.
    paid 100 euros used, then Q / P seen all the great possibilities and sound quality effects.
    I would do without this choice eSite it I need another digital delay, but in the near future, I would add one more analog delay (probably the T-REX reptil II) with a real tap tempo for a simple delay. DD-7 used primarily looper and reverse.

    it's a great pedal and looking for a specific law and may delay the getter it without hesitation: D

    Beefed up Digital delay

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 07/31/11 at 19:08
    - Stereo input and outputs
    - Up to 6.4 seconds of delay time
    - 40 seconds of hold
    - Multiple delay modes, including reverse, modulated, and analog simulation
    - Expression pedal and tap tempo compatible
    - Controls for delay time, decay, and mix level
    - Buffered bypass
    - Powered by 9v battery or boss style adapter
    - Easy battery access
    - LED indicator

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty simple to use, especially for the number of features that Boss managed to cram into this pedal. I still have no idea why they included so many different delay time parameter modes, but with 6.4 seconds of delay time, it makes more sense than with previous boss pedals. Ha…

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty simple to use, especially for the number of features that Boss managed to cram into this pedal. I still have no idea why they included so many different delay time parameter modes, but with 6.4 seconds of delay time, it makes more sense than with previous boss pedals. Having to hold the pedal to start tap tempo can be a little annoying, I’d definitely recommend an external TT switch. The hold function is a really great addition with 40 seconds of loop. You can’t overdub or save, but it can still double as a loop pedal in a pinch.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It actually sounds pretty good. The standard boss digital delay sound is unmistakable, perfect digitized repeats. On the other hand, it also has an analog delay simulator that does a pretty good job. The modulated delay is another cool setting, but unfortunately you don’t get any control over the depth and rate of the modulation. The reverse delay is a really cool addition, limited uses, but still very cool. The buffered bypass is standard boss issue, and not great, but definitely usable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The flagship of the compact Boss delay line, the DD7 does digital delay very well. In fact, it might be one of the more usable digital delays that I’ve come across. Pick up an external tap tempo switch and you are set. Boss managed to cram an impressive number of features into this one, while maintaining its compact size. I’m not really one for digital delay, but this might be the one to have. On the whole I tend to find most boss products sub-par, but this the DD7 definitely holds its own.

    Great sub $200 Digital Delay

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 07/24/11 at 17:41
    Ah, the Boss DD-7. This, and it's brother, the DD-3. are probably the most common digital delays out there. You'll see it on the pedal board of just about every level of player, from garage rockers to arena-players, and for good reason. It provides solid digital delay tones in a sturdy package right out of the box with pretty minimal tweaking, and is very easy to use. It has "E. Level", "F.Back", "D.Time" and "Mode" controls on the pedal itself, and it has a jack for an external tap-tempo switch or an expression pedal. It's full stereo, and runs about $180 new.

    Overall? Not a bad feature set for a $180 delay.

    Overall? Not a bad feature set for a $180 delay.

    UTILIZATION

    Tweaking to get a delay sound you like really couldn't be easier. The "E. Level" (Effected Level) knob controls how loud the delayed signal is. The "F. Back" (Feedback) knob controls how many repeats there are, the "D. Time" (Delay Time) knob controls how long the delay is, and finally the "Mode" knob does exactly what it says, controls what mode you are in. The modes are as follows: 3200ms, 800ms, 200ms, 50ms, HOLD, MODULATE, ANALOG, REVERSE. The number modes are just a standard digi-delay with a set time, but I assume moving the Delay time knob would override the setting on those.

    The "HOLD" function is very nice, it allows you to loop around 40 seconds of playing, and it allows you to overdub as well. Great practice tool there!

    The ANALOG and MODULATE modes are simulations of analog and modulated delays, which can be controlled by the delay time or Tap-tempo (More on that in a second). They both sound great, and I personally find myself using the Analog mode the most.

    REVERSE is just... strange, heh. Can't say I've found a use for it yet, it is just more to screw around with.

    Now, Tap-Tempo. BOSS did a great job on the implantation of this. You hold down the switch for two seconds, and then tap in the tempo. Works great as is, but if you want, you can add a dedicated tap-tempo switch that plugs in the jack on the side. Or if you prefer you can use an expression pedal that plugs into the same jack that can control the delay time, your choice.


    SOUND QUALITY

    The DD-7 sounds great. I can't say that it really stands out among the other similar priced digi-delays, but it does sound good for what it is. The Analog mode is decently convincing, and is what I use the most. Does it sound as good as the newer TC Electronics delays? Probably not, but it has some great features that make it what it is. I do love how crisp it is, which may put some off, but sometimes you just need a perfect repeat which analog delays cannot provide.

    I run it through the effects loop of my Peavey Ultra that pushes my 5150 straight cab with V30's and G12T-75's, using a Warbeast NJ Deluxe with EMG's. I play mainly Thrash metal, with some drop-tuned stuff thrown in. I love that it can add another dimension to my solos, and some fullness to non-distorted clean parts. Definitely sounds great all-around.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What do I like the most about it? Probably the versatility and the sound. The Hold function is very useful for practice, and the Modulate and Analog modes sound great. What don't I like? The Analog mode could indeed sound a little more, well, analog, heh. I also wish BOSS could have added a couple of different modulated modes, but that may be asking for a little much.

    Do I think it's worth the cost? Well, I got it in a trade, but I do think I would pay the $180 retail for it if I didn't have a choice. That being said, I think I would go for the TC Electronics Nova Delay or Repeater if I had to buy another digi-delay. I don't normally give an item such high marks in all categories, but this really is one of BOSS's great pedals.
