Boss DD-500 Digital Delay guitar pedal

Calculated at checkout

Finally Boss created the masterpiece of the digital delay in the DD-500, so much and so many echo type are packed in to this incredible pedal. Most important though is they are all so well done and so useful. For those using or looking for high fidelity guitar delay tones and who really need interesting delays to inspire them look no further. It's made by Boss so you know it will last forever they just make the most durable guitar pedals. Filled with newly developed BOSS technology, the DD-500 is the most powerful and versatile stompbox delay ever created. This incredible sound-creation toolbox offers 12 distinctive delay modes with exceptional audio quality, plus deep editing controls, a graphic display, patch memories, MIDI, and much more. From basic echo to dead-on emulations of classic delays to incredibly lush spatial textures that take your breath away, the DD-500 will launch your music places you never thought possible.

Twelve Versatile Delay Modes and Deep Editing Options
With the DD-500™s 12 delay modes, you can create any delay sound you can imagine, and then some. Everything you need is here, from warm, gritty vintage delays and tape echo to complex modern delay lines that employ pitch shifting, filtering, and other unique processing. With the hands-on knobs, it™s easy to shape essential parameters and create great sounds immediately. Each delay type also includes a semi-parametric four-band EQ, modulation, ducking, and many other parameters, allowing you to dive deep and refine tones with maximum precision. 

Unparalleled Sound Quality
In the DD-500, every delay mode has been carefully crafted for a unique sonic personality and highly musical tones at every setting, realized by high-powered DSP running at 32-bit/96 kHz. And while the DD-500™s delay effects are high-end digital, your straight guitar tone remains 100-percent analog at all times, with your choice of buffered or true-bypass operation. In addition to strengthening the analog dry signal, buffered bypass has the added benefit of enabling carryover, so delay trails are not cut off unnaturally when the effect is switched off. 

Advanced Features for Stage and Studio Use
In the world of sophisticated delay stomps, the DD-500 stands alone in practical usability. The large, integrated LCD fully supports the pedal™s immense capabilities, giving you clear visibility of delay time, patch ID, and more on one screen, plus sane navigation for detailed parameter tweaks, naming, and system management. And via USB, it™s simple to connect to your computer for patch backup and MIDI control with your favorite DAW. 

Intensive Real-Time Control
With its freely assignable controls, the DD-500 delivers unmatched creative expression and performance flexibility. By default, the A, B, and TAP/CTL switches offer intuitive control for two patches, bypass, bank selection, tap tempo, and more. However, they can be customized to operate in alternate ways, such as providing top-level access to three different delay patches, or allowing you to use two patches at once for layered delay sounds. Instead of tap tempo, you'e able to assign the TAP/CTL switch to various real-time functions like Warp or Twist for a wide range of expressive effects. Even more parameters can be manipulated via an optional expression pedal or external switches, and MIDI I/O opens up many additional control options with advanced setups.

That Pedal Show – Mega Delays Part 2.2: Source Audio Nemesis & Boss DD-500 (50:39)
Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com In this episode we take a(nother) look at the Source Audio Nemesis Delay and the Boss DD-500. They’re both incredibly capable, modern, multi-feature delay units that offer you an almost infinite amount of sonic and creative potential. The issue with so much capability, however, is that that it can take a while to get to grips with finding it all, as we found out when we first looked at them. We went away, studied manuals and came back slightly better equipped to scratch the surface of what’s possible. Join us if you dare (and can stay awake) as we engage with a little option paralysis and the interesting discussion that ensues. Do you need one?
