What are the differences between the delay types on the DIG?
The TYPE switch on the DIG selects between 3 different A/D and D/A conversion modes used in the digital delay. Each conversion mode provides the delay effect with a different sonic characteristic:
- 24/96 – This algorithm uses a high-resolution conversion to create a digital delay that faithfully recreates the input signal, with subtle dynamics that allows the delayed signal to sit under the dry signal while you’re playing. All internal processing is done with 32-bit floating point precision at 96kHz.
- ADM – Uses Adaptive Delta Modulation which takes a method used in the telecommunications industry for voice signals with increased performance. Retains high quality repeats with lower input level signals and reduced fidelity with higher-level high-frequency inputs. Great for rhythmic delay sounds and provides a percussive feel.
- 12 Bit – 12-Bit PCM running at 32KHz provides a warmer vintage digital delay sound. A digital delay that is initially clear with a sense of warmth and dimension. Delays with high repeats gradually turn into a soft, ambient wash of sound.
