Digitech DSP Plus, Music Technology, May The manual claims the abbreviations are printed on the top of the unit – but they weren’t on the review. Digitech DSP Plus, Sound On Sound, Apr There’s no indication in the DSP Plus manual of just how the signal is routed from one effects section .

Setting the Early Reflection Level higher than the Subsequent Reflection Level will create the impression of proximity to the source; reversing the situation will create an impression of distance. The gated and reverse reverb effects provided by two dedicated algorithms are both good, and allow for considerable control to be exercised over effects that can all too easily sound a little cliched.
Musical equipment I currently have for sale is listed on this page. Filter, Chorus, Multi-tap Delay 8. It admits as much in the introduction and says that the DSP software was still being developed while the manual was being written. These multi-tap facilities were the first things to really impress me on the DSP Plus. The manual supplied with the review unit was a temporary manual.
DIGITECH DSP-128 Owner’s Manual
The effects are applied in series and their parameters can be assigned to any MIDI continuous controller. The Chorus and Flanging effects range from the digirech to the ridiculous. The quality and smoothness of reverb produced by a particular diffusion level varies according to the size of the simulated environment, and larger environments tend to require higher diffusion values.
In practice, to kill the effect I found it far easier to turn the Mix control to Dry. Large room, Delay, Flange, Filter 3. As it is, any edit you make takes effect immediately.
Gear in this article: The flange, on the other hand, has a good deal more bite: Its quoted frequency response is 20Hz to 20kHz with a signal-to-noise ratio of around 85dB. Large room, Delay, Chorus, Filter 2. Further left along the panel is a four by three grid which shows the range of effects allowed by the current algorithm coming up.
You can make the sounds do more than just bounce from left to right – they can circulate around the stereo image. The next two algorithms offer stereo multi-tap delay combined with EQ and either chorus or flange, and the rest offer such delights as reverse and gated reverb, parametric and graphic EQ, and the immodestly titled Ultimate Reverb.
If you value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps! It’s a whole new experience. The stereo chorus effect is clean, and more subtle than many I’ve heard: Providing manuals and documentation for 10 years! It has three rotary dials on the front to set input and output levels and the mix between the dry signal and the processed signal.
There are never any problems with the signal getting ‘lost’ anywhere because you forgot to set a particular mix level: The manual gives some details, although a few more pages and a little tutorial section would not go amiss.
In the multi-effects processor wars, Digitech’s DSP Plus distinguishes itself with comprehensive facilities and little sound colouration. This control is limited to continuous controllers so note velocity, aftertouch and the like are not catered for. Even the algorithm section was not completely correct, although the meaning of the parameters could be gleaned from the algorithm list. Examples to fit this scenario can be found in the fields of synthesizers, samplers and effects, and on a shorter time scale, it often seems that a few months can make all the difference between something being perceived as ‘excitingly new and different’ or just one of ‘a recent trend’ for units of a certain kind.
You may need to exercise a some caution here, as running through a range of values on the fly can produce glitching, but this is not unique to the DSP. Welcome to “Manual Manor”! Review by Ian Waugh. One thing to be said about all multi-effects processors is that even a couple 12 years ago, finding such processing power in one unit and at such a price was all but unthinkable.
In general, however, such an effect would not be applied to any sound in a context where the noise would show up much. The infinite repeat facility on the delay section can be initiated with a footswitch, or via MIDI as I’ll describe later.
DIGITECH DSP-128 Manuals
As the range of effects is dependant entirely upon the algorithms, I’ll list them here: Each parameter is represented by a two-letter abbreviation ‘rd’ for reverb delay, ‘Fl’ for flange level, and so on and next to each abbreviation is a number indicating that parameter’s current value.
In the light of these rapid manusl in technology, what have the boys at DigiTech come up with?
Parametric EQ, Chorus, Delay John Walden joins the digital digitecy This modeling guitar effects processor has 11 amp models, 22 studio quality effects, an digitech dsp manual expression pedal for real time control of the effects. Scrolling is neat but it takes time and after the novelty wears off you’ll probably plumb for pop up display.
Since then, musicians have realised that being able to apply reverb and delay and EQ -and something else – to a sound is a good thing. Further possibilities include producing a pseudo panning effect, or in these two algorithms, the flange or chorus effect is placed in line before the multi-tap delay, so that echoed flanged notes are heard rather than flanged echoes and there is a real difference.
Digitech DSP Plus (MT May 89)
The updated Plus version therefore has the improved features necessary to make it a contender again: The first six algorithms the only ones to allow four effects at once have a maximum delay time of 0. Further parameters determine the characteristics of both the early and subsequent parts of the reverb, with pre Delay and Diffusion parameters available for both.
Searchable archive of old, out-of-print music production magazines. One aspect of these algorithms that is common to other MSEPs is that there is a trade-off between the number and complexity of effects used.
