Hatsubai's review"3 cloned pedals in one"

Behringer Distorsion Modeler DM100
Behringer has been on a mission when it comes to cloning pedals. This time, they combined the Boss DS-1, MXR Distortion+/250 and the RAT. There is a three way switch to select between these three different modes, and it also has a tone knob, volume knob and gain knob.


Unlike the Boss counterparts, I'm not exactly sure how well these will stand up to touring. Where as the Boss products are known to be able to survive a nuclear holocaust, this pedal is still new. The casing itself isn't too bad, and it seems like it could take some abuse without much of an issue. It's ridiculously easy to set up, and you shouldn't even need to read the manual as to how to run this thing. That said, I have never read the actual manual, so I can't comment as to how well it's written.


The sound isn't too bad, but it doesn't truly emulate all three different pedals. For one, these are fairly different distortion pedals. Hell, the Distortion+ is actually an overdrive pedal. In the DS-1 setting, it's supposed to be like the Boss DS-1. However, it seems to be a bit buzzy. Then again, the DS-1 was a bit buzzy anyway so there's not a huge change. The Distortion+ mode sounds nothing like the normal overdrive. It is way more like a distortion pedal than anything else. The RAT setting also doesn't sound like a RAT. That said, for the price, it's not that bad.


If you're expecting to get all three different pedals in one little box, you might as well give up now. It doesn't sound like all three pedals. That said, for the price, it's not that terrible of a pedal. I have a moral issue with these pedals in that you should never support actual clone pedals like this, but it's up to you if you wanna buy it or not. I'd rather have all three different pedals simply because they sound different and are way more versatile.

(Article purchased magazin the + close)


I Espanole but a good scratch ...

it is rather to boost the output of my synth without effects.

(See description ...)



I connect a cable jack symmetrical, the pedal is not lit.


return magazin. test ... OK!


a single bright yellow cable will do between my synth and "purpose" ..


ui gf ...

I ecouté including BOSS 1 .. 2?

bp too acute ..

I like the switch for the bass, med, and ultras': D


more gf at the moment ... I had totally use this jack from the AUDIO HEADPHONES out to in my synth ..

surprising indeed "xOOOOOx"


if you are a heavy guitar pop / rock / (at lower prices ...)

this pedal is made FOR YOU!


(The only regret ...) it lacks the "true bypass" -> pr bass / guitar elec / ca tro acouss
chain nothing :)

on the other hand behind the mono A left North lead, we lose altogether! fishing for this synth!

so ...

I will not put 4 * either, but as synthesist ke ...

WELL I rate this distortion pedal effect "dirty in low" with not one, not two ...


if I had to make this purchase ...

I will try to see if the same "behriner" (a V2, but still!) with true bypass, in case I do not use .. without grain loss / gain.

Alcorine's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Distorsion Modeler DM100
This is a distortion pedal that can model numerically classques three pedals fuzz / overdrive / distortion that are the DS1, the D + and the RAT. For the user it is as transparent as using an ordinary effects pedal, analog input and output but digital processing internally. So unless you have a pronounced distrust digital emulation, nothing can hold you to experiment. So for me it's a 9, because I reserve the 10 for each original model.


Three knobs and a switch, the setting could not be more obvious, it determines the amount of distortion with the first, the amount of harmonic tone (this gives a sound ranging from very dull to very metal) and finally with the gain Level. A reservation, however, the material quality of the pedal. In addition to its case fully plastic promised an aging random (over time it may become brittle especially at the hinge of the hood), it does not feel very comfortable pressing it like a madman and I highly doubt that this pedal has a place on stage. Furthermore, the race is not very regular potentiometers not to touch but to the ear. Numerical modeling requires you through a step value to another instead know the escalation analog pedals. Thus, the adjustment of the distortion appears quite reached the approximate 3 / 4 of the race, we pass suddenly from a subtle crunch to overdrive a wild one nuance that the other two knobs that are Tone and Level.

Another major weakness, however, use: changing the 9v battery, you must use a system of push buttons at the turn of the pedal cover requiring the use of two pens bic, not very elegant ... So a 5 because of this lack of usability and fidelity in the sound settings. Besides, if you hesitate to buy, though these defects have in mind because they are really the counterpart of an unusually low price.


How to judge the sound quality for such a pedal? Let's be honest, I do not own any of the three pedals emulated so I will not speculate to say that this is true or not. I have a US TV that I plug into a Behringer V-amp 2 which I find the sound a little too clean and too cold and dirty distortion. What I can say is that the DM100 has brought the little grain was missing. Disto with little but a lot of Level I get a nice boost that highlights the medium with a touch of heat (as to what the digital ...).

With pronounced disto I find the sound I wanted to know tend noisy, Sonic Youth, Placebo, Nirvana. The sound of the DS1 is by far the most fuzz, causing a terrible noise, the word draft is probably what best describes the result.
The D + and rats have more body and offers distos punchy and harmonically rich.


I use it for three days, I immediately detected the weaknesses, now it remains to exploit the nuances of the pedal modeling. I guess it falls into the category of the Line6 modeling distortion and given the price difference, no doubt the second option seems preferable for those with heavy use of their pedals.
If one seeks only sounds noisy, wild, dirty and full of harmonics, the DM100 is a perfectly acceptable option. I use sticks at home, I had also not want to spend over 80 euros for a single pedal, it was of exceptional quality. I have owned many pedals distos: the boss (OD1, MT2), an ibanez (TS808), a tube marshall (governor), I got tired one day or another and I am ruined. I therefore find the quality / price ratio extremely interesting and I think my interest even close to that reproduces the big muff.

This includes pedals Ralite distos diffrent 3 (DS-1 Distortion + and RAT). There is an input, output jack, a power supply jack. Rglages level there is a three position slecteur to select the type of distortion, a SETTING THE gain a rglage SETTING THE qulisation and output level. The pedals are heavy enough to stay well on the floor (thank you the lead plate below!). However we should not give big kicks over or so .... squeak! It's lightweight robustness level. The slecteur control a small cross (nothing to do av a big footswitch what). To stack one seeks a time. Must be removed above the pedals (the footswitch) stack your checks. We look for a moment if someone shows you. I put a battery and the battery connector is broken ds I wanted to change it. In short C not tough but for the price ...


Setup is simple and easy. It turns a walk. The manual is practically nonexistent, but It is not necessary either, except to change the battery. It's simple but very easy knob turns so be careful!


Then do not believe that one is in possession of the pedals century. Personally I was looking for a distortion waiting to buy some pedals more ... expensive lol.
I use the pedals with a tube amp. The attack is fairly well made. I persois in a certain configuration of espce derrire buzz sound of the guitar. As if two guitars playing at the same time, one with a crunch and the other distortion. It's pretty weird but you really have to listen!
I do not know the original distos so I do not judge the quality of rendering. Basically the RAT is the sweetest (it's a little more crunch) the distortion a little more pchu + and DS-1 really more dirty. It happens to have a good sound without having either a crystalline distortion in La Mesa. Once faith for the price ....


I use it recently. It is a quality pedals with a report irrprochable prices but will not suit those looking for high quality effects or have the hardware is just o hear the difference. Personally it is a temporary pedals so I had going. With a transistor amp must be heard under the small default. Another thing, there is not a true bypass for APRS what I heard. Is stopped when the effect is to turn the buttons on the pedals has come to change a bit but its a faith you really have to cost.
In short if you can not afford to pay you 100 euros has pedals and you do not want to sound trs trs end ... PDAL this is for you. But do not expect has seen miracle for 23 euros
