Sell Yours More Information Delay effects have evolved over time from using inordinately long cables and manipulating tape in the studio to analog bucket brigade units to tiny stompboxes that provide infinitely tweakable digital reflections.

For a long time, though, musicians were stuck with having multiple delay pedals on their board, each one getting a very specific delay sound, whether it was analog, tape simulation or digital. If you had an album or a live set that called for multiple delay sounds, your board was inevitably going to have to grow with delays.

The Boss DD Giga Delay aims to solve that problem, providing all the delay options most players would ever want within one standalone unit. The Boss DD Giga Digital Delay features the hardy construction typically associated with Boss units in a twin pedal system with a digital display a highly useful feature live or in a bedroom.

This compact, bulletproof construction gives it an edge when compared to other delay station board monsters such as the Line 6 DL4. With smaller construction, however, comes an intimidating cluster of buttons, knobs and lights. It only takes ten minutes tooling around with one, though, to discover that the setup is intuitive and elegant.

Aside from choosing the output level or toggling between memory or tap tempo to get things set, most of the time the DD can be used in a set-it-and-forget-it way. It helps to think of this pedal in two halves. The left half of the pedal can act on its own as a standard delay pedal, with eleven different types of delay to choose from. The knobs above the left side will be familiar to anyone who has ever used a delay pedal before: tone, level volume , feedback blend and mode selector.

If you wanted to, you could use the left side of the DD as its own standalone unit. The right half is all about accessing memory presets and setting tap tempo. The right footswitch functions either as a memory preset toggle or tap tempo. There are four memory presets you can program in by dialing in the settings and holding the red Write button.

The Select button toggles between the four memory slots. The only other control on the right side is the Delay Time knob, which admittedly pairs more with the left side of the pedal. You can choose between manually dialing in the delay time with this knob, or setting it via tap tempo with the buttons under the digital display.

That seems easy enough. What are the eleven modes, though? Here they are: Analog.
