There are two features that win me over. Do you know where I can reorder it and which exactly to get? 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.

Anyway, it’s extremely complicated to use for a result frankly not great This was in the worst condition. The 1Meg trimmer for clock frequency was also broken off. Log in Become a member.

Everything seemed to work, except that I couldn’t change delay ranges, it was stuck on the longest range 2 seconds. Unfortunately my “Mix” Pot snapped off a couple a months ago and I lost it.

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.


It is here also that the Trigger Input makes sense By using our services, mannual agree to our use of cookies. So once in Trigger mode, you must press the switch on the left to launch a sample. Whatever the reason, nearly ever part can be sourced pretty easily, unlike finding a replacement Boss controller IC from good luck. Already, two seconds, it is obviously too short to sample anything.
