Question about BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS Boss Dd-3 Digital Delay Pedal

1 Answer

Increase in delay effect during a lead setting.

I have a rocktron shortimer delay pedal. It sounds great, on the clean tone, but when ever I switch channels for an overdrive setting or distorted setting(lead basically), the level and depth of the delay(repeat) is more "noticeable". How can I keep it under control?

This may be he characteristic of mixing of the delayed when high distortion is present...

I would go to music store and compare... I tend to think this is the nature of the beast.

If you consider what the waveforms look like with distortion and then add them delayed... they limit out and when added there is a significant difference when adding or mixing waves that are delayed when squared compared to nice sine waves.

Rocktron starts buzzing when I play it on keyboard


If it's disconnected from everything else, it may indeed be the power adapter. Try a different one, but also try it in a different location as well to see if it's picking up outside interference.

User manual for DOD DFX9 DIGITAL DELAY GUITAR PEDAL


Can't find a manual but can still explain. Delays, chorus, flangers, and reverbs are all the same effect except the different names of them will allow you different adjustments. Chorus usually has a width control which controls pitch shifting. Flangers and delays will have a feedback control which simply means, how many times you hear the echo. On reverb units, room size means how long of echo(even though it;s short) you want. Delay is the same with much longer echo, feedback is the same as on flangers except the flangers time is very short meaning the effect is at almost the exact time resulting in feedback causing a metalic sound. I probaly just confused you but good digital delays usually have all the features and will usually do all 4 effects depending on how you set them. If you want delay, set width on 0 and adjust time and feedback. For flanging, adjust width and speed and feedback. Chorusing, adjust time, width, and speed. Reverb, adjust time, set width on 0, and feedback. I see it has a level(mixture, how much effect you hear), and a replay(feedback, how many times you hear it), and a delay knob,(how long the echo will be) The range/mode switch allows for settings of diferent time lengths and INF setting allows for infinite repeat. Hope this helps.

Marshall MG30FX loud tapping sound in time with delay even when no guitar plugged in and effects turned off


Hi J Wade. I'm Dave P. I'm not a guitar amp expert or technician but I've been using amps and effects for 35 years and there are a couple things I can suggest.

That kind of periodic noise/switch noise can be a symptom of having the polarity of the amp reversed. If your amp has a 3-position OFF/ground switch, try reversing the ground. If it doesn't, take the plug and turn it around. Just don't get near a microphone unless you're sure your amp is grounded the same as the P.A. It could fry your lips off.

Dirty switches to that too. You said the noise is in time with the delay's tap time which is set by a foot switch. If tapping that switch the first time generates a pop, the delay may have catch it and is repeating it. Turn off the amp, remove the delay foot switch and turn it back on. Still noisy? If not, give the foot switch a good cleaning.

When you turn the EFFECTS knob up, is it scratchy? Might need the potentiometer cleaned. What happens when you specifically turn the DELAY level down all the way while using the other effects? Noise still there?

That's all I've got. Hopefully, it was helpful. Don't wrack your brain over this too much. There could very well be an internal problem with your amp that will require a trip to the shop. You don't want to open it up yourself. Rock on but be safe.

My Rocktron Utopia G200 displays DSP RESETTING, no sound, no controlls possible... What can I do?


The symptoms indicate either the WRONG power adapter is being used or the adapter is failing. This unit uses a 9VAC (not DC adapter like many pedals) adpater. If you are trying to use a DC adapter or a multiple pedal power supply that is your problem. Use ONLY the correct power supply with this unit.

My boss me 25 pedal's sound isn't as clear and good as the demos' sound. My amp is a randall RT100 which is a valve amp and my guitar is an LTD with the custom pickups. so the problem is the setting i'm...


I have the Boss ME 50. Here's things to try. Use wall outlet to power the 25 instead of batteries. Have volume on amp up, volume on pedal all the way up, volume pedal all the way up(depressed), no gain on amp(use clean channel or clean setting if only 1 channel)effects on amp off(reverb, chorus, delay, boost, etc.) mid range knob below 5. only 1 pickup on, guitar tone knob all the way towards treble. If this puts you in the ballpark you can then make slight tweaks to any of these settings. What we're trying to do is not run a dirty sound from the pedal board into an amp with dirty settings. That double dirt often causes a muddy sound. Aside from that you can back off on various effects in the patches. My 50 has a list of the patches and factory settings, so if the drive, for example is set on 8, I might back it off to 4, or the compressor, or the delay, etc. If you like the sound save it. If not continue on. Start with the amp 1st. Higher output tubes(such as JJ's produce a cleaner sound. Also the demo you heard was not coming from your guitar speaker which may not be on the clean side.

Bussing sound comes out the tube,even when it it connected correctly


Make sure you have the correct power adapter, not a substitute. Make sure your guitar is outputing enough... You LIKELY will need a guitar that has a preamp in the guitar, (not a passive pickup guitar). This device is nothing more than a small amp that drives a speaker which the sound travels up the hose. If your guitar creates a buzzing noise, then this device will do that too... Plug a set of headphones directely into your guitar to verify the sound is clean... NOTE, only one side of headphone will have guitar in it if the headphones are stereo type.

When i turn on my pedal i can get the clean tone but when i switch the distortion i cannot get the distorted sound...what should i do?


Make sure the pedal has the correct power supply voltage, current AND polarity.

Also adjust the setting knobs as needed.

Make sure the in's and out's are corectely connected... it will work clean if they are backward, but no distortion.

How to set up foot switch in order


Personally I recommend the following set up:

Distortion>Effects>Compression/Noisegates/Sustain

This will ensure that the signal won't have any odd hiccups due to an odd pedal setup. But if you play around with different orders, you can end up with some very interested sounds.

The correct order for Effects pedals.


Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.
