The PDS was boxed with the PDS manual. When I got mine, I thought I got a PDS manual by mistake, so I called digitech and. I am fond of the Dod/Digitech PDS series delays. On paper there’s nothing too amazing – mid s 8-bit delays with 1, 2 or 8 (if you can afford. DigiTech PDS Two Second Digital Sampler: DigiTech PDS series» digital delay pedal», sampler pedal».

Lopsided’s review – DigiTech PDS Two Second Digital Sampler – Audiofanzine

This one was partially working when I got it. Raju Solanki 24 April at Unfortunately my “Mix” Pot snapped off a couple a months ago and I lost it.

It is the ancestor of what JamMan. It must be pressed again each time you want to start another one. Adjustment on trimpots is fairly coarse, so this can’t be dialled with really great precision but I find it much easier than trying to listen to the delay and sync to a stopwatch or something similar. I think this will only work well for very lo-fi sounds, as the sample rate will get much lower and aliasing effects will get worse.

Someone had already taken a crack at fixing it, it was missing knobs and a back panel. This a soft-start for the 9V supply on the PDS With the technology of the time. Mateusz Rademacher 25 April at I repaired 4 of these delays recently.


Digitech PDS Delay/Sampler Pedal

Delay time is varied by changing the frequency of the main clock signal that shifts digital samples into and out of DRAM memory. The footswitches were also unreliable, so I replaced the microswitches.

This one also was not quite a 2 second delay so I did some pot tweaking. If it is used as a delay pedal, it is very simple: With that, two footswitches: This actually worked pretty well, but replacing these pots and running wires to the PCB is probably a better long-term solution.

This just needed some soldering to bring it back.

Hi, This 2 second delay is a ton of fun! Do you know where I can reorder it and which exactly to get? With Infinite Repeat function and the change in pitch when you move the knob Delay Time, There are enough really fun!

For pfs the phrase will be repeated ad infinitum.

Digitech PDS 2000?

I got this in a box of failed repairs from a music store in the US some years ago and never did a lot with it until now. Faster clock frequencies shift data faster and give shorter delays.

Whatever the reason, nearly ever part can be sourced pretty easily, unlike finding a replacement Boss controller IC from good luck. Ram Chauhan 28 June at D The sample function is useless, especially nowadays with all the pedal sampler format that exist and are really excellent The replacements are a little taller than the originals, so I cut the legs a mnaual shorter and soldered some bus bar to them, then soldered the bus wire into the PCB.

Namely that it’s already very hard to clean a sentence This is on purpose, but it’s still boring. First you must get in Sample mode which works like Normal modeswitch the pedal, play a phrase when that phrase is repeated, using the switch on the left to bring it into memory. I swapped this chip over from the other and it worked.


Finally, a tribute all the same to the ancestor of the JamMan! The 1Meg trimmer for clock frequency was also broken off.

There may be an “official” method for adjusting maximum delay length using a testpoint on the PCB but without a service manual I’ve come up with my own. The length of it depends on the settings of the repeat range. Mnaual of the pedals in this series came with snap-in plastic battery doors that are not held captive by the ods i. I replaced the trimmer and set it to the middle of the it’s range, based on how the other was set.

There are online discussions about modifying these pedals for longer delay times that usually involve tweaking the delay pots away from nominal positions to get longer delays.

After replacing pots I found that delay time wasn’t working because of broken trace, I ran some Kynar wire to restore it.
