seb29silver's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad for an entry level"

DigiTech Studio S100
This is a rackmount model (it is 1 unit), there is most commonly used effects, the reverb, delay, flanger, phaser, chorus, pitch (quite simply amazing to have a voice or ant king kong) vocoder (pretty basic), compressor, gate. I think it is digital, I've only used audio effects in the voices on stage

UTILIZATION

extremely simple to use, no need PC editor, the manual is very well done, there are 100 factory presets can be edited easily, a treat because you get what you want in 1 minute. key bypass me good service rendered on stage, I could cut my belongings and leave just the reverb of the table, handy for some songs

SOUND QUALITY

effects very realistic (enough for me anyway), I use it for vocals, but it works well with a synth too, especially when you put a sound completely banal and strings that you add the phaser, it transforms its (and your eyes on your machines ...)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 11 years, I've never had any problems, it works very well, I tried the Alesis MIDIVERB 4 before buying the digitech but the alesis is less easy to use, the effects less powerful. the enormous advantage of digitech for me, it's quality and unbeatable price, I recommend it gladly. if it fails, I'll buy this product because certainly for the moment I have not been limited in its use. excellent machine

DigiTech Studio S100
It is a small multi-effects rack (1U), the effects available are more traditional:
- Modulation / Pitch
- Delay
- Reverb
- Others (Vocoder and other bizareries)

These effects are available on each of these two effects engines in the machine.

They are (thankfully) all éditbales. But the number of parameters is not great .. but still enough to customize its effects 'home'
I've never used an editor: ka machine is not as complex enough to require such tools ...

Inputs / outputs stereo analog Jack 6.35.
And MIDI ..

UTILIZATION

The setup is rather simple: there are two effects engines.
Each of these engines offer a number of effects (listed above).
After each program effect can arrange these 2 motors to 5 configurations:
- A motor with only Stereo Inputs / Outputs Stereo
- A & B Motors in series with stereo input / output
- A & B Motors in conjunction with stereo input / output
- A & B Motors in parallel, each with its input and output Mono Mono
- A & B Motors in parallel, each entry mono and 2 stereo outputs mixed

Editing is fairly simple in principle: there are 4 parameters to adjust, in addition to the Noise Gate and EQ.
The names of these parameters are more or less know by heart from the manual because the small LCD displays abbreviations not always talking ...

Editing is done for tiny button under the screen. The thick fingers of a bass player there are not really comfortable.
And they do not seem very, very strong ... Personally, I've always handled with extreme caution for fear they'd slam the fingers ...

The manual is simple, clear, concise .. But rarely available in French.

SOUND QUALITY

I use it with auxiliary synthesizers.

To effect this price range, the effects are rather good.
I do not really like reverb (I prefer the MicroVerb for algos and unnatural for my TC M350 reverbs 'pretty').
Modulation effects (chorus / phaser / falnger) do their job properly.
The Vocoder is not a reference to intelligibility but still allows a good time (on drum loops, for example).
For cons, the times I know not what his round / cahoutchouteux which I appreciate ... I abandoned my MidiVerb4 times for those of S100.


OVERALL OPINION

This is not a Lexicon ... this is not a TC Electronic.
But the S100 is much cheaper.

Frankly, for the price he gave me great service and it's not going to change.
Over time, maybe the screen bigger brother (the S200) provides some ease of use but ...

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

DigiTech Studio S100
Multi-purpose full-Stereo with SIMULTANEOUSLY: 2 + effects 3 band EQ with semi-mdium paramtrique + noise gate.
The effects may be open road, with five configurations: a single effect (it to improve the rendering of reverb or the length of delays by using the power of the DSP), two effects in stro s series, two mono effects parallle, 2 parallle effects (mono inputs / outputs stromlanges), 2 Stereo effects in parallle (between St ro / O stromlanges).

4 paramtres by purpose (eg for reverb: Predelay, decay, damping = attnuation Treble level).
Effects:
-Reverbs (stage, room, hall, plate, chamber, cathedral, arena, gated, reverse)
-Modulation (chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, auto, leslie, pitch shift, detune = pitch shift end for a bigger sound)
-Delays (mono, stereo, table tennis, karaoke) until 2000 milliseconds; possibility to block the delay in repeat-hold delay = infinity.
Spciaux-effects (compressor, vocoder, ring modulator)

The connections are made in asymtrique jack. It occupies one rack unit. The power supply is strong enough.

The trio Studio100 possde noon (in / out / thru) and is Fully controllable noon without any difficulty with any squenceur.

UTILIZATION

No need for instructions to take it in hand, everything is described and the screen abrviations are explicit.
The shipping is fast thanks relevance paramtres adjustable.

(I also possde Quadraverb and plug-ins pro: edit an effect can take ten minutes because of the abundance of available paramtres. Here, there are only three paramtres + the level of effect. We do not embarrass the number of rglages possible, even when masi CONTRL is really what we do, unlike the effects of TC or lexicon end o more paramtres are associated on a same potentiomtres, and expressed with the words "marketing" not always speaking: we do not know what you're doing well, and n ' is not always find an empty rglage musical in some situations particulires ...).

The value of paramtres values ​​are expressed in "standard" Predelay reverbs and modulation effects in milliseconds, length of delays (coarse = step length: 0.1 ms 2 = 100 = 2 seconds) pitch in semitone, frquence the EQ in hertz.
Being given the display only two digits, some values ​​are expressed on a scale "unnatural"; nanmoins the rglages are easy and intuitive, thanks to compliance with the terms commonly used s ladders and adapted a musical treatment.

It is both practical and prcis. Ideal for live.
Examples:
Compressor: threshold (60 0), ratio (1 19, then = infinite capacity), attack (1 10). This compressor is of good quality as neutral and effective than my TC M300.

Leslie ("rotary speaker"): speed (0 99), type (color), X-over frequency (frquence cutoff between the two HP turns serious and acute, 1 4).

-Vocoder: sibliance (level "S", the Phnom ncessaires comprhension), type (1 5).

SOUND QUALITY

The converters are 20 bits, as the latest ADAT.
We do not peroit aliasing: the sound is neutral, which remains silent before fraoid cold, which remains silent hot hot. Like Roland, one can reprodcher Digitech effects that lack of grain: it is always pro and music, there is absolutely no breath, but it's so mat that sometimes one would like a little more personality of "default"!

Example: the phasing and chorus, well made and a trs good mix, but we would like some more grain to smear a guitar or voice. I told my prfre Ibanez phaser pedals.

Ditto for the reverb, the reverb numriques good average of the range.
They are better than their equivalents Lexicon, but I will prfre those of M300 on my TC to the atmosphere "natural": that of the S100 are against idalie to "tweak" an instrument that lacks body ( with detune + flat), and gated possde a particular grain that makes good on most snare drums.
If your singer is anmique, your KB dull, your battery soft atmosphere, the detune of the S100 reinflates before attacking the reverb. Ditto if you run out of singers.
We feel the exprience of the Digitech SERIES with its famous "Vocalist".

Its main strength is the delays and the panner (thanks this neutrality.
I also really like the flanger, and deep end.

A multi-effects will not replace a vocoder ddi but here there are several types of filtering and number of bands for an effect that can help. The best vocoder I've heard on a multi-purpose, that of c'tait Zoom 1204 with his prampli incorporated in that modulates the incoming signal stro true (indeed, a good small multi-purpose booster, with a nice grain and a warm personality, without the breath habitiuel to Zoom)

Ditto for the "ring modulator" impossibe imitate with a multi-effect: here it is more like a SETTING THE rsonnance a frquence, which remains nanmoins trs musical INTERESTED to color and sound, default to simulate the effect of Manir raliste indicated. I made my ais ftiche effect on my bass.

TC M300 and Digitech Studio100 boxing in the same CATEGORY small multi-effects pro, fast rgler. Digitech advantage in terms of functionality (2 effects + EQ + gate), but the TC wins in terms of grain ... So while dpend needs and the equipment we have. The semi-EQ paramtrique I have often saves the day on small consoles in m'vitant back slices to Galise effects. Ditto for the possibility of routing more dveloppes the Digitech (on the TC is fixed: 1 + 1 reverb effect in parallle SERIES Stereo or mono).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years, I bought DS because it leaves trs silent ahead of the competition in features and quality sound for the price.

Today my TC M300 him from the shadows.
If I keep my Zoom 1204, my first multi-effects, it is for grain.
I sold my Quadraverb more cause of the blast, although I love the grain (I'm waiting to find a reasonably priced SERIES 2).
I have never kept a long time diffrent Lexicon entry level I possdes!

The S100 may be the least engaging of my multi-effects (neutral too!), But there is one I use as my APRS TC M300, and one that can be as close as my regret e Quadraverb at the grain (in a chorus and a chanante hall). There is no one mix that I did not used the AIS since I possde, and it is still true today ...
it is a sign that never fails!

guizmo.17's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech Studio S100
Multi effects with two engines that the link is configurable (parallle in SERIES, etc. ..). Modulation, Delay, Reverb, various effects ...
Sampling by the Technology numrique between.
All effects are ditables by buttons (a bit small forward) and display on the LCD screen. Good point for the dial.
Stereo audio input, Stereo output (possibility to enter and leave in mono), headphone jack, pedals, MIDI IN.
MODEL rack (1U)

UTILIZATION

Simple, original confg ready employment, few ncessaires ditions.
Manuel clearly a little short.
Edition made some dlicate by small buttons and small cran.les 100 records can be preset to record utiliss these changes.

SOUND QUALITY

The rverbs are good enough, and the modulations dlais .. some are rich enough and the phaser is cool.
There are many custom settings to refine.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years.
I have not tried one before the other models but it is often better and better color the sound of VST plugins.
