    Using very simple ... it's plug and play. Before I had a multi-effects and I am separated to return to that sense of simplicity.
    Excellent use of knobs.

    UTILIZATION

    Yes, the configuration is gnrale dfinitvement easy. Manuel clear as usual 'at Boss. I finally russi operate the pedals of expression that can connect. Namely, not all are compatible ps: for example, with my Bespeco and my Ernie Ball has worked. It works well with my DOD FX17 ... Charles will understand ...

    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.

    UTILIZATION

    configuration is very simple.

    - "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 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

    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.

    Best yet!

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 07/13/11 at 14:53
    This is Boss's fifth and best offering to the digital delay world. They have taken the great platforms of the boss DD-5 and the Boss DD-7 and expanded on that technology. On this pedal you have an input for an expression pedal for either ordering up tap tempos or even changing the modulation of the delays. You also get longer delay times and the ability to record up to 40 seconds of playing time. That is an incredible feature in this simple little compact pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    Specifications

    Controls: E.Level, F.Back, D.Time, 8-way Mode Switch
    Connectors: INPUT A (mono), INPUT B, OUTPUT A (MONO), OUTPUT B, Tempo/Exp, AC Adaptor (DC 9V)

    Current Draw: 55 mA
    Weight: 400g / 1lbs (including battery)

    Input Impedance: 1MOhm
    Nominal Output Level: -20dBu
    Output Impedance: 1kOhm
    Residual Noise Level: -90dBu (IHF-A, typ)
    Recommended Load Impedance: Over 10kOhm
    Delay Time: 1ms - 6.4s
    Recommended AC Adaptor: PSA Series


    SOUND QUALITY

    The tone of this one shifted only slight in certain modes. Like the analog delay which was modeled off of the Boss DM-2. This function or mode was added to the repertoire of the Boss DD-7. You also get a modulation feature on this pedal. This comes in handy with the use of an external expression pedal. This will add a bunch of depth to your delay repeats. One of my favorite delays that has ever been created.

    I prefer this one over the boss DD-6. There are much more features and options with the same great digital delay tone. the tone hasn't really changed and without A/B ing them you cannot tell any difference, even if there was one.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At new these units come in at around $160, which isn't a bad price for a very high quality and functional digital delay pedal. To me it is much more simpler that an Eventide Timefactor or a Diamond pedal. This pedal is small and compact and does a lot for the money.

    Digital delay pedal, delay may be long, long very long style grates you you put the quitar you'll have a coffee and you're back there just in time to hear the echo, etc. Everything is possible, there also a sampler of 40 seconds or less, a simulation of vintage delay (quite nice, the sound becomes very dirty in rehearsals), a reverse delay (not top on the other hand).

    Are they edited? Via a publisher Mac / PC?

    I dunno, I even understand the question, but I do not think I saw anything that looks like this anyway.

    I do not think

    What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)

    Digital

    What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)

    Audio jack

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is simple?

    Yes, 4 pots, one for the level, one for the number of repetitions, one for delay and to select the mode. There are also tap-tempo function which is handy

    The manual is clear and sufficient?

    Yes and no, it is all in English so if you're not comfortable with that language is a bit painful.

    Editing sounds and effects is easy?

    Yes.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

    Yes, it's digital but that's not what matters, it remains for me more than correct in terms of sound quality.

    Which instruments do you use?

    A tambourine ... uh no, guitar

    Which ones do you prefer, you hate?

    I love the simulation delay vintage dirty sound with repetitions, I hate the reverse function. Another positive point when you turn off the effect, this last does not stop net, he moved gradually.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?

    2 months

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?

    # 1 echo and MXR Carbon

    What thing do you like most/least about it?

    The tap-tempo and the sampler (and blame) for what I love most, for what I like least is that when you move the tap-tempo, if you want to mute the effect, it must maintain his feet 2 or 3 seconds on the pedal, but it must be done in rhythm if it saves your support as a change of tempo and if you want it back later once the bin is more tuned to rhythm.

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?

    Good

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

    Without a shadow of a doubt.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Well, here's the part that interests us ...

    I think the pedal is very transparent and that's what I was looking for. There are no effects that I hate, just the reverse effect that I do not use yet.

    The pros:
    Pedal transparent
    Spillover (which does not cut the effect of abruptly)
    Modulate mode that will provide me to buy a chorus (actually, I EH Small Clone, but I find it too colorful)
    Hold mode that allows to record up to 40 seconds of loop (I put my Jamman tate the closet to make room on my pedalboard)
    The quality of the effect in general
    no background noise

    The -:
    I have not found yet, but I did that since day qq
    At the limit, just the fact that in some settings donf, the effect creates a buzz sound unusable (I think it is a characteristic common to other delay, including the Visual Sound H2O)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for several days now. I bought it in a moment of acute GAS when I was eyeing on the sounds of Slash from GnR ... I googled a bit for the effects he uses and zor = command on the net ...
    I tried and owned other effects, namely:
    - The # 1 Echo EH = I soon dropped as soon as one engages one loses the output volume. Then I found the sound a bit too robotic to digital, not pleasant. Finally the volume pot to blend it impossible to recover the output signal ... Sold
    - The Visual Sound H2O. This pedal (version 1) had the advantage to combine 2 = Chorus and Delay effects. I have not liked too much because it colors the sound, breath more than the DD7 and settings to build on the Delay make the slurry sound ... Sold

    Overall I am very happy with my new acquisition, especially as I think it will help alleviate my Pedalboard Squizz in my chorus and my JamMan, which will allow me to have a simple chain of effects, potential buzz / hum lower ... Just a few pedals, but good!

    If you want a transparent effect, quality, and not taking much space, go there with confidence!

    The effects I use most:
    Long delay (6 seconds): excellent, versatile and easy to adjust.
    Analog delay: very convincing, I "used a lot in very short delay with little feedback to grow my sound. Having owned an analog delay, with the DD7, I do not feel frustrated, question of taste.
    Modulate: a sort of combination reverb / chorus, also excellent, indeed "spacey" very useful to create a sound "ambient".
    Hold: bénéfcie is a loop of 40 seconds, very useful for working the chorus or to compose / arrange a guitar part.
    Tap tempo sync very useful and easy to use.
    Reverse: only real shadow on this rosy picture, not really controllable nor very convincing, so I do not use hardly any.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years after owning a Boss DD2 purchased in 1984 and recently sold, and before that an Aria AD10 (analog delay) which I keep a great memory.
    In overall this pedal is an excellent deal at the price it was sold, when I bought my DD2, though less versatile, it cost me much back then.

    In terms of sound, and more generally the analog vs. digital debate, I find very compelling and powerful enough.
    And then it's a Boss buffer and reliability.

    I would do without hesitation that choice.

    Boss DD-7 Digital DelayPublished on 06/18/09 at 10:14
    The Boss DD-7 Digital Delay is the latest in the line of digital delay pedals made by Boss, and is maybe the best.  Like the name states, the pedal is a digital one and it has two 1/4 inch inputs and two 1/4 inch outputs as well as another 1/4 inch connection for an expression pedal if you wanted one.  It is powered by either a nine volt power supply or nine volt battery and isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.


    UTILIZATION

    Personally, I've never had any problems manipulating this pedal to my liking as it is pretty basic in make up.  Like all Boss pedals it has four different knobs, with this one having parameterrs for effect level, feedback, delay time, and a…

    The Boss DD-7 Digital Delay is the latest in the line of digital delay pedals made by Boss, and is maybe the best.  Like the name states, the pedal is a digital one and it has two 1/4 inch inputs and two 1/4 inch outputs as well as another 1/4 inch connection for an expression pedal if you wanted one.  It is powered by either a nine volt power supply or nine volt battery and isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.


    UTILIZATION

    Personally, I've never had any problems manipulating this pedal to my liking as it is pretty basic in make up.  Like all Boss pedals it has four different knobs, with this one having parameterrs for effect level, feedback, delay time, and a mode knob that allows you to choose between a number of different types of delay including modulate, analog, reverse, and four different amounts milliseconds.  The pedal also allows you to tap the tempo if you hold down the pedal and then stomp out whatever tempo you want it to be at.  I can't imagine too many people having much trouble with this pedal, and for this reason I don't think having the manual is necessary.



    SOUND QUALITY

    Just about every sound heard from the Boss DD-7 Digital Delay is awesome.  Each has a super clean tone quality and the pedal is a pretty versatile one with all of the different modes.  My favorite modes are the reverse and modulate ones, but the others are really just as good and this is just a matter of personal preference.  While I like all of the Boss delay pedals in the DD line, the DD-7 probably has the cleanest sound quality and most versatility.  I really have no complaints about this pedal and unless you are looking for a true analog delay pedal, the DD-7 can service all of your delay needs.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the Boss DD-7 Digital Delay for about a year and I have come to the conclusion that it is definitely better than most of the other digital delay pedals out there.  The price isn't all that expensive when you consider what you are getting, which is an extremely versatile delay pedal with a great tone quality.  If you are looking for a delay pedal, the DD-7 is one that must be discussed and tried out.
