The DigiDelay is a unique delay pedal, combining several features that
have never been available in a standard stompbox. The DigiDelay offers
4-seconds of delay, four different delay types including ping-pong, tape,
reverse, modulated, and a loop function. The Loop function records
loops up to 4 seconds in length that you can add overdubs to. The
DigiDelay also features Tap Tempo delay and switchable CIT™ cabinet
modeling. This owner’s manual will guide you through all of these
features. But feel free to experiment as you read through it.
1. Level Knob
Controls the delay effect’s output level. Turn this knob clockwise to
increase the output level, and counter-clockwise to decrease the output
2. Repeats Knob
Controls the number of delay repeats. Turn this knob clockwise to
increase the number of repeats, and counter-clockwise to decrease the
number of repeats. Turning this knob to the maximum position engages
repeat-hold of the delay signal. This knob is disabled in 7-LOOP mode.
2 3 4
3. AC Adapter Jack
Connect a DigiTech PS200R power supply to this jack. Use the proper
supply for your area’s Mains line voltage.
4.Time Knob
Controls the amount of delay time specified by the range selected with
the Mode (5) knob. The knob’s minimum position is the shortest delay
time for the given range. The knob’s maximum position is the longest
delay time for the given range. When 4-TAPE, 5-MOD DLY, or
6-REVERSE is selected, the delay time ranges vary from 10ms - 8 seconds
(see Mode Knob for exact ranges). You can increase the delay time by
tapping in a longer time using the Tap Tempo delay feature (see Tap
Tempo section). The Time knob is disabled when 7-LOOP is selected or
when the DigiDelay is in Tap Tempo mode.
5. Mode Knob
Selects a delay range, delay type, or the infinite Loop function. The first
four mode settings give you ping-pong delay when Out 2 is used in
conjunction with Out 1.
Select one of the following:
1-10-250 MS - 10 to 250 milliseconds
2-250 MS-1 SEC - 250 milliseconds to 1 second
3-1-4 SEC - 1 to 4 seconds
4-TAPE* - Emulates a vintage tape delay
5-MOD DLY* - A digital delay with chorused repeats
6-REVERSE* - A delay where the repeats are played backwards
7-LOOP - A repeat/hold function that lets you create infinite loops of up
to four seconds in length.
* Mod Delay delay time range is 10ms - 1 sec. Tape Delay range is
100ms -1 sec. Reverse delay range is 1 - 8 seconds. To increase the
time of Tape or Mod Delay types, use the Tap Tempo delay feature.
6. Input Jack
Connect your instrument to this jack. Connecting a guitar cable to this
jack supplies battery power even though the Indicator LED may not be
lit. To prolong battery life, disconnect all cables from the pedal when not
in use.
7. Pedal Release Pins
These two pins are spring-loaded hinges that hold the pedal in place.
Push these pins in to release the pedal from the pedal chassis exposing
the battery compartment. (See battery replacement diagram).
8. Pedal
Press the pedal to turn the effect on and off. The Pedal is also used for
tapping in the delay time when using the Tap Tempo delay feature.
9. Out 1(Mono) Jack
Connect this output to a single guitar amplifier when only one amp or
mixer channel is being used.
10. Indicator LED
This LED indicates when the effect is turned on. When using the Tap
Tempo delay feature, the LED will flash at the rate of the delay time. If
the LED becomes dim or does not light when the cables are connected,
the battery needs to be replaced.
11. Out 2 Jack
Connect this output to a second amplifier for ping-pong delay when
using one of the first three Mode settings, or Tape or Reverse delay
types. Use both this output combined with Out 1 for a more enhanced
chorusing effect when using the Modulated Delay.
Tap Tempo Delay
The DigiDelay’s Pedal can be used as a tap-tempo switch for setting the
delay time during a live performance. To use the Pedal for tap-tempo,
follow these steps:
1.While the delay effect is on, press and hold the Pedal (8) for 3
seconds until the Indicator LED (10) begins flashing. The LED
flashes at the delay time’s duration.
2.Tap the Pedal switch at least two times to set a new delay time. The
last two pedal tap intervals set the delay time. The Time (4) knob is
disabled when tap-tempo is active, and the delay cannot be bypassed.
3.To exit tap-tempo, press and hold the Pedal for 3 seconds until the
Indicator LED stops flashing and lights solid red.
Loop Delay
The Mode knob’s 7-LOOP setting is used to create an infinite delay
loop up to four seconds long. Once a loop is created, you can add
overdub parts to it. To use the Loop feature, follow these steps:
1. Select 7-LOOP using the MODE (5) knob.
2. Begin with the effect bypassed. Press and hold the Pedal (8) and
immediately begin playing. The Indicator LED (10) is lit solid red.
3.When you reach the end of your loop, release the Pedal. The passage
plays back in an infinite loop, and the Indicator LED flashes red.
4.To add overdubs to the existing loop, press and hold the Pedal at any
time and begin playing. The Indicator LED is lit solid red as long as
the pedal is held, indicating that anything played will be added to the
5.To stop the loop, quickly press the Pedal. This puts the DigiDelay
into Bypass. The loop stops playing and the delay loop memory is
The DigiDelay has a single input and a pair of outputs. Out 1 is used if
the DigiDelay is being connected to only one amplifier. Out 2 is used
for stereo operation. Connect Out 1 to the first amplifier and Out 2
to the second amplifier. Using Out 2 gives you ping-pong delay for the
first three Mode settings, or Tape or Reverse delay types.
CIT™ Cabinet Modeling
The DigiDelay also has built-in CIT™ cabinet modeling. This is useful
when running a distortion pedal into the DigiDelay and then running
directly into a mixer or recorder. CIT cabinet modeling creates a guitarthrough-an-amplifier sound without having to use a guitar amp.
To Enable CIT™ Cabinet Modeling:
1. Begin with the power disconnected from the DigiDelay.
2. Press the Pedal (8) down and apply power (do this by connecting a
guitar cable to the DigiDelay Input Jack (6) or connect the PS200R
power supply to the AC Adapter Jack (3)). When the Indicator
LED (10) has stopped flashing, release the Pedal.
CIT™ cabinet modeling has to be enabled each time you apply power to
the DigiDelay using the procedure outlined above.
Battery Replacement
1. Using the tip of a 1/4” guitar cable, push one of the release pins in on
either side of the pedal, and remove the pedal from the pedal chassis.
2. Remove the battery from the battery compartment and disconnect
the battery cable.
3. Connect a new battery to the battery cable and put it back in the
battery compartment. Make sure the battery cable does not interfere
with the spring or pedal switch arm.
4. Place one hole of the pedal over its corresponding pin.
5. Push the opposite pin in and lower the other side of the pedal into
place over the depressed pin. Release the pin. When the pedal is
properly fastened, both release pins are flush with the outer side of
the pedal.
