Delay Doppelgänger.

DIG unearths the true soul of digital delay and doubles it—two simultaneous, integrated delays with the captivating rack delay voicings from the 1980s and today, for incredible expressive potential.

Effortlessly create your own world of intricate and synchronized echoes, along with hypnotic and atmospheric repeats that blur the line between delay and reverb. Stretch your sonic horizons with five musically satisfying rhythmic subdivisions and three dual delay routing options. Go from syncopated, pulsating delay patterns, to evocative, spaced-out echo trails all in a compact, pedalboard-friendly format.

Rack to the Future.

Rack-mount digital delays of the ’80s ushered in a new era of audio effects. The innovative electronic designs generated the cleanest delays yet to be heard, but also created their own special and intriguing sonic characteristics. Thirty-plus years later, these sounds remain as distinctive and inspiring as ever.

Our thorough investigation of digital delay technology reveals the unique personalities that these delays possess. Delve into DIG’s three digital delay voicings: the early ’80s adaptive delta modulation mode, the mid-’80s 12 bit pulse code modulation mode, and the modern high-resolution 24/96 mode.

Multiply these distinct voicings by two and get DIG—your perfect dual delay ally.

Two Simultaneous, Integrated Delays.

 

DELAY 1 – The Master Delay.

Free-running delay time allows you to easily dial in delays from 20ms to 1.6s with the Time knob or Tap Tempo switch. Longer delay times lend themselves to more ambient soundscapes while doubling and slapback effects can be achieved at short delay times.

 

DELAY 2 – The Companion Delay.

Set the ratio between the two delays with one of five rhythmic subdivisions: triplet, eighth note, dotted eighth note, dotted quarter note, and the golden ratio. Don’t want synchronization? Engage Free Mode to disable subdivisions and allow Delay 2 to be its own independent, free-running delay. Dial in short delay times for chorus/flange sounds to run alongside Delay 1.

    Audio Samples

    • Driven Out ●
      The dotted quarter setting creates a driving rhythm that’s filled out by deep modulation.
    • Untitled Avenues ○○
      A dotted eighth rhythm makes good use of the percussive nature of the ADM delay type in ping pong configuration.
    • Nameless Corridors ●
      With similar settings to the previous clip, the delays are now configured in series to create a different dynamic.
    • Present ●
      A fast delay time with deep modulation highlights the presence and clarity of the ADM delay type.
    • Free Chorus ○○
      Effect is engaged at :03. Using Free Mode, Delay 2 is set to a short delay to create a chorus/flange effect, feeding into Delay 1 with full-bandwidth repeats.
    • Free Flange ●
      Effect is engaged at :04. By using Free Mode and setting Delay 2 time to minimum, a heavy flanger-style effect is created to feed Delay 1.
    • Removing the Lows ○○
      The Golden Ratio subdivision is paired with a high-pass repeats filter to progressively remove the low-frequency content of the regenerated repeats.

  • Config:
    ● Series, ●● Parallel, ○○ Ping Pong

    Audio Samples

    • Filtered Repeats ○○
      The eighth note division creates a double-time repeat while the Mix settings accentuate the down-beat. Repeats filtering adds further complexity.
    • Unequal Rhythm ●
      Effect is engaged at :03. The dotted eighth note subdivision from Delay 2 is mixed higher than the quarter note from Delay 1, creating a syncopation for the rhythm chords.
    • Digital Dirt ○○
      With high repeats for Delay 2, the short regenerating delays are filtered to create a dirty digital delay.
    • Building to Chorus ●
      We start with a single medium length delay with deep modulation. Using Free mode, Time 2 is set to minimum. At :14, Mix 2 is turned up creating a chorus that accompanies Delay 1.
    • Finding the Chord ●
      The dotted eighth syncopation drives some arpeggiated chords that are filled out with light modulation.
    • Epic Flange ●
      Effect is engaged at :04. Using Free Mode, Delay 2 can be set to very short delays, creating chorus and flange tones. Here a heavy guitar tone highlights a flange sound from Delay 2 feeding a short delay.
    • Slappy ●
      Effect is engaged at :04. A dirty guitar gets doubled with a short slap delay from Delay 1.
    • Golden Oceans ○○
      The Golden Ratio creates an ambient wash with deep modulation and some repeats filtering.
    • Mood Swings ○○
      Heavy repeats filtering is showcased with deep modulation to create a moody ambience with the Golden Ratio subdivision.
    • Full Mood ○○
      With similar settings to the previous clip but without any feedback filters, the ambient wash sustains at full bandwidth.

  • Config:
    ● Series, ●● Parallel, ○○ Ping Pong

    Audio Samples

    • Bounce House ○○
      The Ping Pong configuration creates a bouncing stereo movement to the dotted eighth syncopation.
    • The Letter ○○
      With the repeats filter set to remove the low-end, a big ambient delay setting provides a great canvas for some ethereal E-bow explorations.
    • Triplet Triads ●
      The triplet subdivision sets the rhythm for the arpeggiated triads.
    • Fleeting ○○
      A fast-paced riff gains added rhythmic complexity from the dotted eighth subdivision.
    • Separates ●●
      The delays are synced by an eighth note subdivision, while the Parallel configuration keeps them from interacting with each other.
    • Soft Tempos ○○
      High Repeats with the Golden Ratio subdivision creates a soft pad, while the high Mix 1 setting emphasizes the tempo of the music.
    • Nightly News ●
      Some light modulation adds depth to this fast and clean dotted eighth delay.
    • Deep and Wide ●
      Effect is engaged at :04. An eighth-note subdivision propels the transparent, wide-bandwidth 94/96 delay. With repeats at minimum, the rhythm stays focused.
    • Dominant Accent ●
      Effect is engaged at :07. The dotted eighth subdivision adds an accent to the dominant quarter note of Delay 1.
