This pedal may well be digital, it can become self-oscillation, which is very cool.
I repaired 4 of these delays recently. Hey i got sone issues with my pds More on that below. Lopsided ‘s user review 5 Like Tweet Submit Email.
With the technology of the time. With that, two footswitches: I replaced the trimmer and set it to the middle of the it’s range, based on how the other was set. Tweaking these delay pots brought the delay back to 1 second and adjustable through the full range of the delay pot. I replaced with long-leg alpha pots. The sampling modes also weren’t quite right, trying to trigger samples would switch the pedal into bypass mode or sometimes do nothing at all.
These delays could be built from scratch with manuxl parts today, and they are very repairable. Log in Become a member. On paper there’s nothing too amazing – mid s 8-bit delays with 1, 2 or 8 if you can afford the PDS second maximum delay times.
I would like to see ps this was implemented, as it should have 4x the memory of the PDS A surprising amount of 90s and early 00s delays can’t smoothly pitch-shift recorded audio when playing with the delay times, and glitch or “jump” somewhere through the pot travel.
At this point things appeared to work again, except the delay was very distorted and noisy. The length of it depends on the settings of the repeat range. I haven’t seen a schematic for the PDS 8 second delay.
With Infinite Repeat function and the change in pitch when dihitech move the knob Delay Time, There are enough really fun!

Please let me know if you have a PDS schematic or high-resolution board shots. 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 messed around with compounder trimpot as I thought that may be distorting – no improvement.
With the new chip the delay rates could be carefully dialled in to 2 seconds pretty quickly. Did you find this review helpful? This just needed some soldering to bring it back.
If it is used as a delay pedal, it is very simple: Finally, a tribute all the same to the ancestor of the JamMan! All of the pedals in this series came with snap-in plastic battery doors that are not held captive by the enclosure i. Delay time is varied by changing the frequency of the main maual signal that shifts digital samples into and out of DRAM memory.
The best picture I can find online shows a single 18 pin not 16 pin IC, but the label isn’t legible. D The sample function is useless, especially nowadays with all the pedal sampler format that exist and are really excellent Write a user review Ask for a user review.
