DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
The DOD FX25 Envelope Filter comes in a few different versions, but this review is for the older one as shown in the picture.  I believe there is a newer model of the pedal that has three parameters rather than two, but none of them are currently be made anymore.  This is an analog pedal with 1/4 inch connections and powering options for a nine volt battery or power supply.  This isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

Using the DOD FX25 Envelope Filter really couldn't be any simpler.  The pedal has two knobs for range and sensitivity, and that's all that you have to work with with the FX25.  This makes using the pedal extremely user friendly, but does limit what you can do with it a bit.  I don't think that anyone at all with have problems understanding how to use this pedal, but if you are an absolute beginner and aren't sure what the parameters do or mean, the manual should be able to help you out, though I don't think it is necessary.


SOUND QUALITY

I haven't used the DOD FX25 Envelope Filter on any sort of recording, but have used the pedal in tandem with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, so I got a pretty clean idea of what the pedal sounds like.  You can definitely do some interesting things with the DX25, but as far as sound quality is concerned, this isn't my favorite pedal.  It isn't as realistic or clean sounding as I would expect more modern versions of the pedal to be.  However, the pedal definitely has some merit as it can be used in a lot of creative ways.  I do wish that it was a bit more versatile, but the basic sounds that you can get are pretty cool and useful.


OVERALL OPINION

This version of the DOD FX25 Envelope Filter won't cost you too much money at all if you want to seek out a used one, which is probably the best thing that the pedal has going for it.  It allows users access to some cool auto and envelope filtering at a very low cost.  There are certainly a ton of pedals out there that sound better than this one and are more versatile, but if you want a guitar envelope filter that will cost very little to start off with, the DOD FX25 is something worth checking out for sure.

DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
(Originally written by adhawen/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Only one effect... This pedal sounds good although it's a digital effect.

1/4" jacks.

UTILIZATION

The setting is not simple although you only have two controls. But with a bit of patience you can get good results depending on what you're looking for.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal is not versatile but it sounds great!

Famous players (like Flea, M. Einziger) chose it and there's a reason for that.

OVERALL OPINION

It has a strong sound character... It's small brother (FX 25B) doesn't provide the same results. Except for Electro-Harmonix effects nothing is at the same level.

It's a great deal considering its secondhand price but it's very difficult to find one on the market since it's discontinued...

If you find one, buy it without hesitating: it's a collector's item!

MGR/Brian W.'s review"DOD Envelope Filter Auto Wah"

DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
I got it at Guitar Center for only 30 bucks! Retail price is about $100 though so others may not be so lucky.

For only 30 dollars, this was an excellent effect. I wanted a wah but couldn't at the time so I got this instead. I love the sound! It makes great wah sounds. And with all knobs at 10, it sounds like a screechin cat! :)

Battery's run out quickly. But that's about it.

It is made of metal, and is pretty lightweight. It actually was dropped on accident on concrete but it was not scratched at all, and the sound was perfect!

If you love funky style music, or you like to have a screamin sound, this is a great pedal for you!

stf74's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" FONKYESQUE! ! !"

DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
Affect sensory or slamming FUNK DUB well boosted low.
Two knobs settings.

Technology with evil ... a stack. Yes you heard right ladies and gentlemen.
Or some kind of power supply jack jack rotten M **** and fabulous connectivity with cables, yes, cable jacks. I shudder.

UTILIZATION

Despite its two knobs it is not so easy to find the right balance between dynamically based attacks in the game (fingers, pick, wood logs ...) and the range of desired effect depending on whether you want slamming a game live, which engages the attack as the strings or a big sound very full bass and all relative at the neck of the instrument (in the treble or bass). In short it is easy is not so obvious, as my explanation elsewhere.

SOUND QUALITY

As soon as we found the setting, the funkadélice ... Or Boombassadélice ....
I use it mainly with a low because I'm a substitute bassist.
But I also tried with a guitar because I am a beginner guitarist cockroach and it is as effective and enjoyable (with a keyboard should try to see).
Against by the effect should be taken into account in relation to all other instruments and its placement in the mix, and there it may not be obvious too (compared to the output level of the amplifier and chooses effect pedal).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had 4-5 years and I think this is the pedal that is found most often connected.
Besides, I have two in case one finds himself stranded (I love it).
In the same vein I also have a Mutron HAZ which is not too bad but different and more massive, a FX25B same brand but do not constitute a Wha Wha is good too but less striped envelope filter ... and then we share in the hyper-space Moog and cie quiet so we immediately otherwise it goes on.
And I know what.
In short, this pedal is for me a favorite Funkyesque and portable excellence.
Value for money begins to grow in value and is not given the matron, but it's worth it.
I remake this choice a million times.

One effect available ... The pedal is digital but it sounds good.
jacks.

USE

The settings are not simple (despite only two pots), but with a little patience you get there ... it all depends on what one is looking for.

SOUND QUALITY

As said above, it depends on what you want: you have to know where we are going with this pedal but if it is known, it can be quite terrible!
Beautiful people is used (Flea, Mr. Einziger) it's not for nothing.

NOTICE GLOBAL

She still has a sacred grain ... His little sister (FX 25B) does unfortunately not out as well and apart electro-harmonix nothing of it.
Given its argus is a bargain but this is the problem: very difficult to find and at a good price, it is no longer manufactured ...
If you find one, go head down, it's collector!

DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
30 euros to the Argus, but she is happily 80!

UTILIZATION

Two buttons, but the possibility of fine tuning!

SOUND QUALITY

Funk sound! ultimate funk sound bass and guitar! genial type auto wah and better! (I say this is a default volume level that increases when we use this pedal, but good)

OVERALL OPINION

Nothing to say but 30 euros is not a pedal rever c geniale!

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

DOD FX25 Envelope Filter
ZE funky machine
Hatch for easy battery CASC by the rear portion.
2 knobs Rglages = Range (DEFINITIONS envelope, signal processing) and Sensitivity (power effect)

UTILIZATION

An happiness envelope filter that gives even when a little job for rglage (but with tears in his eyes once mi.
There are only two knobs and happily. The Range can be set all the sauces as you got on the other hand, unnecessary Exceeds 3 / 4 of the Sensitivity, a hand in every way and your review will be taken according to the diff rent power supply you use.
In this regard, it is better to use a stack because it's then Rican amprage is very sensitive. It's 9V certainly, but a lightweight in mAmp boost is welcome. But not too much or we just gun and to find another, it is the Cross and the banner.
(Just a note but said the bottom line is sound)

SOUND QUALITY

Purists know ZE sound of the FX-25 even if we believe less and less.
How do you mean?
Wah is a violent hit you full head and leaves as quickly as it arrives but still leaves Similarly, on and off, wake a super-funky.
Without touching the buttons, you can qualify simply by rendering the position of the right hand and by the attack. The quality is the same but still leaves the field a little intuitive.
This is a perfect example of what must be and remain an effective tool =!
Much of the work must be done by the man and his little hands.
And if the conditions are runies, the FX-25 will bring the gifts and the icing on the gteau before blowing out the candles.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months and it took me long to find a trs.
That collector. Purists love and a lot even without playing, keep it.
Describes by many (B. Collins, Flea ...) as funky as ZE envelope.
Rglages picky (see Use), which provides even greater pride and happiness in the end.
Did not mind "clan fermquot; those possde something rare, I am" for "this kind of pedals are dveloppe but hlas, it is clear that in this area, it is indboulonnable.
The FX-25B has no grain hlas!
If c'tait again, I Rasht and over again ... and again ...... and again ............. and again, but let's be clear, I do NOT sell!!
