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.


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.


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.


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.
