About the Backup Battery
A backup battery (lithium battery) is used to keep internal data (settings) from being lost, even when
the power cord is unplugged. Internal data will be lost when battery power is depleted, so it is recommended that data be stored to an external data recorder such as the Yamaha MIDI Data Filer MDF3
(→ page 24), or keep records of settings in memo form. The average battery life span is about 3
years. When replacement becomes necessary contact the music store where the unit was purchased, or a qualified service representative, to perform the replacement.
• Do not attempt to replace the backup battery by yourself.
• Keep the backup battery out of reach of children.
• “E5” appears in the display when the battery becomes depleted. Internal data may be lost.
• Data may be lost if the unit is improperly handled or if repairs are performed.

currently selected.
12
Using the DG-Stomp
■ Try Changing the Settings
Use the knobs or buttons on the panel to create your own original tone.
● Try creating your own sound
Knob positions do not represent the current patch’s
value settings so the knob must be aligned with its
setting value (editable condition) in order to make
changes to the value. For this reason, the following
rules apply when a knob is moved.
• Rotate a knob, if the [UP] lamp flashes, rotate the
knob to the right (toward 10). If the [DOWN] lamp
flashes, rotate the knob to the left (toward 0).
At this time, that patch’s data value (the value
set in the patch of the knob you are turning) will
flash on the display.
* As long as the value is flashing on the display, the tone and
value will not change when the knob is rotated.
The AMP SELECT switch functions in the same
manner. When the knob is rotated, the patch’s
selected amp type will flash on the display. Rotate the knob to the position of the amp type
indicated in the display and then select an amp
type you want to use.
The OUTPUT knob and MASTER knob
Either knob can be used to change the volume.
However, the MASTER knob setting is included with
the patch data while the OUTPUT knob setting is
not. Use the MASTER knob to set the volume of
each patch and use the OUTPUT knob to set the
volume as heard from the speaker.
● Change the Effect Setting
Try switching the each of the effect blocks ON/OFF
or try changing the effect. Also, try using the knobs
for each of the effects to change the character of
the effect.
The DG-Stomp’s effects section is divided into the
following 4 blocks,
• Continue rotating the knob in the previously described direction and the patch’s data value
shown in the display as well as the [UP]/[DOWN]
lamp will stop flashing and indicate the actual
value corresponding to the knob’s position.
* After you stop moving the knob, the value will be displayed
for about 2 more seconds after which it will return to the
normal display.
* Even if only one setting value is changed, the [MANUAL]
lamp will flash to indicate that the patch’s data has changed.
When settings for all knobs (with the exception of OUTPUT) have changed, the [MANUAL] lamp will light.
• Once the knob is in an editable condition (in
which the setting’s value can be changed), turning the knob will result in the value shown in the
display changing in regards to the knob’s position and a relative change in the tone.
The previously described rules apply to all knobs
except the OUTPUT knob.
• Compressor (COMP)
• Modulation (CHORUS/FLANGER/PHASER/
ROTARY/TREMOLO)
• Delay (DELAY/TAPE ECHO)
• Reverb (SPRING/HALL/PLATE)
• Press the corresponding button to select the effect you want to use (the lamp will light). However, only one effect per block can be used at a
time. Also, if a button that is lit (ON) is pressed,
the light will go off and the effect in that block will
be switched (OFF).
All knobs can be used to set the parameters of
the effect selected in the block.
* Refer to [Effect Functions and Parameters] (page 19) for more
information on each effect’s function or knob’s setting.
* The operation of each knob follows the same rules as the preamplifier section.

Using the DG-Stomp
● Set the Speaker Simulator
The speaker simulator is a special circuit that adds
the live characteristics of a speaker to the tone output of the DG-Stomp. It is best used when you are
listening through a pair of headphones or when connected directly via a line to a mixer or recorder.
Press the [SP. SIM] button to turn the Speaker Simulator ON (the lamp will light). Press the button again
to turn the Speaker Simulator OFF (light is off).
Also, the DG-Stomp is equipped with 16 types of
speaker simulations. Try to find a simulation you like.

Using the DG-Stomp
■ Try Selecting Another Patch
The DG-Stomp holds a total of 180 patch programs
(patch) in its internal memory.
The 180 patches are divided into two areas each
containing 10 groups, 3 banks and 3 patches.
Try selecting some of the different patches and try
out some of the different sounds.
To select a different patch, use one of the three
methods described below.
• AREA
There are two areas, the USER AREA and the
PRESET AREA. When the Store operation is
used, data in the USER AREA (90 patches) can
be freely rewritten. You can change settings in
the PRESET AREA (90 patches) data but you
can not rewrite the contents to the PRESET
AREA memory.
● Using the [UP]/[DOWN] buttons on the
panel
When a PRESET AREA patch is selected, a dot
will appear to the lower right of the hundred’s
digit on the display (0.11-9.33) When the dot
is not lit (011-933), it indicates that a patch in
the USER AREA is selected.
Every time the [DOWN] button is pressed, the
next lower patch number is selected.
* When the DG-Stomp is shipped from the factory, the same
patch data as found in the PRESET AREA is used in the
USER AREA. Refer to the [Patch List] on the separate
“Patch List” sheet.
• GROUP
The 90 patches in each area are divided into 10
groups (0-9).
• BANK
Each group is divided into 3 banks (1-3).
• Each time the [UP] button is pressed, the next
greater patch number is selected.
011 → 012 → 013 → 021 → 022 →
023 ..033 → 111.....933 → 0.11 →
0.12.....9.33 → 011 (returns to the top)...
• Press the [UP] button continuously increases the
group number by one (1).
011 → 111 → 211.....911 → 0.11 →

switch for the modulation effect, Foot Switch 2 as
an ON/OFF switch for the delay effect, and Foot
Switch 3 as an ON/OFF switch for the reverb effect.
2. Select the patch (group, bank, patch number) to
which you want to store the patch.
Use the same procedure as described in [Try
Selecting Another Patch] (page 15) to select a
patch. You can use the [UP]/[DOWN] buttons, the
foot switches and the BANK switch to select the
patch number. However, you cannot change the
AREA (it can only be assigned to the USER
AREA).
3. After select the patch you want to store your
patch in, hold the [STORE] button.
The store operation is complete when all lamps
light.
* Utility mode settings are not stored with patch data. As common settings for all patches, their contents are stored in the
DG-Stomp memory.

When the DG-Stomp is reset to its factory
default condition, all data stored in
memory is erased. We recommend that any
important data be stored in an external
MIDI device or that notes be taken of the
settings.
Effect Functions and Parameters
Compressor
● FLANGER
Creates a sound resembling a jet.
● Comp (Compressor)
Controlling the input signal (peak) this effect keeps
the maximum level constrained to the level set with
the knob.
• COMP knob
Rotate the knob to the right to increase the depth
of the compression.
When set to “0.0” it will have no effect.
• SPEED knob
Sets the speed at which the pitch will vibrate.
• DEPTH knob
Sets the depth at which the pitch will vibrate.
• SPEED knob + [FLANGER]
Sets the delay time.
• DEPTH knob + [FLANGER]
Sets the feedback level.
● PHASER
Modulation Effects
There are five modulation effects, CHORUS,
FLANGER, PHASER, ROTARY and TREMOLO.
• The two knobs controlling modulation parameters are double duty knobs. As is, they control
speed and depth of the selected effect but holding the currently selected effect's button while
turning the knob can access a second function
for each knob.
• Secondary function parameters are also stored
with the patch’s data. When a patch is selected,
the secondary parameter settings that are stored
in the patch’s data will be assigned to the patch.
• When a different modulation effect is selected
from the modulation effect block, the previous
effect's settings will be used for the SPEED and
DEPTH knob’s individual parameter values.
Secondary parameter values are set to the value
most recently used for the selected effect. (Secondary parameter values are always stored in
the unit with individual effects.)
• To return the secondary parameter’s setting to
its factory default value, hold that effect’s button
until the five modulation effect lamps are lit.
● CHORUS
This is a typical chorus effect.
• SPEED knob
Sets the speed at which the pitch will vibrate.
• DEPTH knob
Sets the depth at which the pitch will vibrate.
• SPEED knob + [CHORUS]
Sets the delay time.
• DEPTH knob + [CHORUS]
Sets the mix level of the chorus effect.
This changes the cyclical phase to give the sound a
wave like motion.
• SPEED knob
Sets the speed at which the phase changes.
• DEPTH knob
Sets the depth of the phase.
• SPEED knob + [PHASER]
Sets the feedback level.
• DEPTH knob + [PHASER]
Sets the mix level of the phase effect.
● ROTARY (Rotary Speaker)
This effect simulates a two-way rotary speaker.
• SPEED knob
Sets the rotation speed of the low frequency
speaker.
• DEPTH knob
Sets the rotation speed of the high frequency
speaker.
• SPEED knob + [ROTARY]
Sets the angle at which the left and right microphones are set in relation to the speaker. A setting of “0” will produce a monaural sound while
a setting of “10.0” will produce a microphone
placement of 180 degrees.
• DEPTH knob + [ROTARY]
Sets the volume balance between the high frequency speaker and low frequency speaker.
● TREMOLO
This effect changes the volume cyclically.
• SPEED knob
Sets the speed at which the volume changes.
• DEPTH knob
Sets the range in which the volume changes.
19
Effect Functions and Parameters
• SPEED knob + [TREMOLO]
Sets the phase difference between the left and
right sounds. From 0 degrees to 360 degrees
(0.0-10.0). Set to “5” the knob works like a stereo pan pot.
• DEPTH knob + [TREMOLO]
Sets the wave shape of the tremolo. A setting of
“0.0” produces a triangular wave. Rotate the knob
to the right to change the shape to a trapezoid
with its sharpness increasing the more the knob
is turned.
Delay Effects
There are two effects, DELAY and TAPE ECHO.
● DELAY
This is a digital delay effect. The sound played will
be repeated after a determined pause.
• TIME knob
Sets the delay time (from the time or the original
sound to the time of the delay).
When the delay effect is used, it is possible
to set the TIME parameter (delay time) by tapping on the BANK switch. Tap a few times on
the BANK switch in the tempo you want to
set the delay to. The interval in which the
switch was tapped will be set in the TIME parameter.
• FEEDBACK knob
Sets the number of times the effect will repeat.
* Too high of a setting may result in an uncontrolled oscillation of sound. Please use caution.
• LEVEL knob
Controls the volume of the source signal into the
Delay circuit.
* If the same Delay setting is switched from a patch using a
LEVEL other than “0” to a patch using a LEVEL of “0”,
the remaining Delay will be leftover. Of course, the sound
of the new patch will not be affected by the delay.
● TAPE ECHO
A digital simulation that provides an realistic reproduction of the classic tape echo.
• TIME Knob
Sets the delay time (from the time of the original
sound to the time of the delay).
* Just as in the DELAY effect, tapping on the BANK switch
can set the TIME (Delay Time) parameter.
20
• FEEDBACK knob
Sets the number of times the effect will repeat.
* Too high of a setting may result in an uncontrolled oscillation of sound. Please use caution.
• LEVEL knob
Controls the volume of the source signal into the
Tape Echo circuit.
* If the same Tape Echo setting is switched from a patch using a LEVEL other than “0” to a patch using a LEVEL of
“0”, the remaining Tape Echo will be leftover. Of course,
the sound of the new patch will not be affected by the Tape
Echo.
Reverb Effects
There are three types of digital reverb, SPRING,
HALL and PLATE.
● SPRING (Spring Reverb)
This effect simulates the spring reverb of a vintage
guitar amp.
• REVERB knob
Controls the volume of the source signal into the
Reverb circuit.
● HALL (Hall Reverb)
This effect simulates the reverb of a hall.
• REVERB knob
Controls the volume of the source signal into the
Reverb circuit.

• REVERB knob
Controls the volume of the source signal into the
Reverb circuit.
* If the same Reverb type is switched from a patch using a
LEVEL other than “0” to a patch using a LEVEL of “0”,
the remaining Reverb will be leftover. Of course, the sound
of the new patch will not be affected by the Reverb.
External Control Settings
Connecting an optional foot controller (expression pedal) such as the YAMAHA FC-7 to the
EXP. PEDAL jack lets you control the volume and tone of the DG-Stomp and effect parameters

external MIDI device such as the YAMAHA MDF3,
etc., to the DG-Stomp.
Use a MIDI cable to connect the MIDI OUT jack on
the external MIDI device to the DG-Stomp’s MIDI
IN jack.
When Bulk Out data is sent from the external device, the DG-Stomp will receive the bulk data.
* Use the DG-Stomp’s Play Mode to receive MIDI Bulk In data.
When the MIDI Bulk In is carried out, the contents of the patches in the USER AREA will
be rewritten.
Please make sure any important data is saved
before carrying out the MIDI Bulk In operation.
■ External Control Settings
Just as in the [External Control Settings] section on
page 21, these settings are used to control the DGStomp’s volume, tone and effect parameters from a
foot controller that is connected to the EXP. PEDAL
jack or a MIDI device that is connected to the MIDI
In jack.
Press the [UTILITY] button then set the Amp Select
switch to DRIVE1 (“CtL” will appear on the display).

value, a value which results in a practical range (refer to the
illustration below) of less than 128 can not be used.
● Set the Maximum Value of the EXP Pedal
Sets the maximum value that indicates the position
of the EXP Pedal.
Press the [CHORUS] button and use the [UP]/
[DOWN] buttons to set the position (127-255).
You can also hold the [CHORUS] button and move

● The EXP Pedal’s Switch Setting
When the EXP Pedal is used as a wah pedal, it is
possible to switch the wah effect ON/OFF by stepping on the pedal. Set the pedal angle at which the
effect is switched ON/OFF.
Press the [FLANGER] button and use the [UP]/
[DOWN] buttons to set the pedal position.
You can also hold the [FLANGER] button and move

Maximun Value.
* If the value is set to “oFF” , the wah switch function will
be ineffective.
* The YAMAHA FC-7 foot controller is equipped with a
“fortissimo” function that allows the foot pedal to be depressed beyond its average position. When your foot releases
the fully depressed pedal, the pedal will naturally return to
its average position. Setting the EXP. Pedal’s switch function
to this “fortissimo” function is convenient.
