Guitar Operator 5.0 out of 5 stars I like this one the best.especially for the price range. Boss DD-7 beats the pants off the Line 6 Echo Park delay. The Boss DD-7 was perfectly clean and did not alter the tone. Easy to set and adjust while playing live and on-the-fly. Matches perfectly with other Boss pedals. It also beats the other Boss Delay pedals available for quality, sound and features. Many options, settings and configuration choices makes this pedal versatile. I bought this for quality, ease of use and straightforward operation while playing live.My favorite is the analogue option which emulates the DD-3 I believe it is. Thus I have an RC-3 looper which is great too. There is a lot of room for adjusting it to get exactly what you want out of it.I still haven't learned how to use the reverse delay, and it seems to be slightly less user-friendly than the one on the BOSS ME-50, so that's a possible drawback. If you have very advanced delay sounds in your set, it's not easy to fiddle with it on stage, but I've gotten along fine switching back and forth between two or three settings with no issue. The fact that you can dial in so many different recognizable sounds makes this purchase worth more than any other DD pedals.http://www.czworka.kutno.pl/userfiles/bose-wave-radio-cd-iii-manual.xmlOnly gave it 3 stars because there are many pedals out there that sound just as good with many more features at this price point. Sounds great, as most boss pedals do. Just not very versatile for the money.Modulation option with short delay time can basically act as a chorus pedal. Vintage sound option is also very good. No noise to speak of.It definitely is one of the best if not the best delay pedal out there. It does everything you can think of when it comes to delay and even has a modulate mode which you can create a chorus sound from. The tap tempo is the most convenient for me and is the thing I use most with this pedal. I have come to realize that I probably will never use this pedal to its full potential. But it is a great pedal and I recommend it to anyone who wants to use all of the many features. If you're like me and just want a good quality delay pedal with a tap tempo feature, I would get something a little less complicated and a little cheaper.It probably has more features and different combinations of settings than I'll ever use, but what the hell. It also has a pretty convincing analog mode.Better than my Boss GT 100. Well packaged and protected, in its original box. The pedal is really high quality and sound just great. Very versatile. I recommend read the manual and use the settings of that appears there.A tad pricy of you're on a budget, but really good. I've been using the loop function a boat load, been layering riffs on top of eachother to make a big sounding metal riff. And I really like the modulation effect, if you turn the delay time right down it makes a decent chorus effect, I've been using this a little more than the regular delay to get a more ambient sound. I'd defy recommend this pedal if you have the money.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again It takes some getting used-to as the selector knob is a bit fiddly. Works with both on my electric and acoustic guitars.http://eco-region31.ru/4-wheel-disc-manual-master-cylinder Provides some real depth to the sound and as it has a stereo output can be connected by two cables to a stereo amp or two separate amps. I have briefly experimented with both options and got reasonable results so far. I need more time to experiment with the settings to see how well this aspect works. A good buy. I have it linked to a GE-7 pedal.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Since its 2015 release, the BOSS ES-8 Effects Switcher has enjoyed worldwide acclaim. With its ground breaking design, functionality and control options, the BOSS ES-8 offers features far surpassing any similar device.https://duluthtaxiservice.com/images/boss-dd7-delay-pedal-manual.pdf Pedal Loop switchers are not new of course. BOSS themselves were pioneers of the concept back in 1982, first with the SCC-700 Sound Control Center, and later the innovative ME-X; a multi-effects unit that enabled players to integrate and control 3 external BOSS pedals of their choice. Though the BOSS ES-5 is a slightly scaled down version of the larger ES-8, it still packs more functionality straight out of the box than practically any other effects switcher currently available. The ES-5 is immensely powerful and once setup to your liking, becomes the “brain” of your entire guitar rig. The flexibility and control of the ES-5 gives you one central control point for pedals, amplifiers and external MIDI devices.We’ll also dig deeper and unravel some of the more advanced capabilities of the ES-5, showing you how to gain maximum utility from this outstanding device. To get the most value out of this article, we would highly recommend using it in conjunction with the ES-5 product manual, available for download here:By reading this article alongside the manual, you’ll soon become very familiar with the ES-5 and all of the control possibilities that it offers you.An effects switcher is a control device that allows a guitar’s signal flow to experience different pedal and effect combinations. Effects switchers simplify a pedalboard, allowing a guitar player more control over their rig. It helps reduce clutter, stress and frees the player up to focus more on their playing. Pedals connect to their own individual “loops”, located on the switching system. The ES-5 contains FIVE loops numbered 1-5. Multiple loops (or pedals) create combinations, which store as a preset. Using footswitches, the guitarist selects the switcher’s combinations and ultimately, what devices process the guitar signal. For more information on Switching Systems for your rig, please check out this article: WHY SHOULD I BUY A SWITCHING SYSTEM?http://www.justgiveahand.org/wp-content/plugins/formcraft/file-upload/server/content/files/1626e570e080dd---4-wheel-drive-repair-manual.pdf Essentially, it is designed to make numerous individual effects pedals act like a single, customised multi-effects unit. The ES series also has the added advantage of removing specific pedals that are not in use from the signal chain. Doing this keeps the signal path as short and as simple as possible for the guitar tone to remain intact. The ES-5 augments the concept of effects switching systems by providing a plethora of additional features and benefits, far beyond the capabilities of similar devices. These additional features greatly expand the scope of a guitar rig and gives players complete control of their signal chain. This includes single-touch control of amplifiers. MIDI devices and external effects devices. Here is a list of some of the functions that the Boss ES-5 can perform that allows total control of any guitar rig:At their core, the ES-5 and ES-8 Effects Switching Systems both provide similar levels of functionality. However, in order for the reduction in physical size of the ES-5, there are a number of differences to its larger sibling, the ES-8.The ES-5 can use up to TWO External Control Pedals to perform control functions whereas the ES-8 can facilitate up to four. Perhaps a little less obvious, but equally important, is the ES-5’s omission of the VOL. LOOP that is present in the ES-8. This loop commonly interacts with a guitar amplifier’s effects loop. The ES-5 lacks this dedicated VOL. LOOP. It is still connectable with a guitar amp using the 4CM, only doing so will use up of one of the ES-5’s effects loops. This means that only FOUR effects loops will remain available for use. The ES-5 suits the guitarist with a more compact setup who doesn’t require the complete flexibility of 4CM setup. Check out below for a more detailed comparison of ES-5 with ES-8:In order to take command of all that the Boss ES-5 has to offer, it helps to understand its key components, as well as how they work in conjunction with each other.chrishuzzard.com/userfiles/files/casio-3000-keyboard-manual.pdf Below is a picture of the ES-5 rear panel, along with a block diagram showing the internal structure of the signal path routing:Each loop is accessible via a SEND and RETURN jack on the ES-5 rear panel. (Refer Section 2-1 ). On most Loop Switchers, the loops adhere to a serial setup, one after the other. (i.e. Loop 1 RETURN would feed directly into Loop 2 SEND and so on.). The ES-5 Analog Switch Array uses a clever matrix of relay switches in order to provide total flexibility of signal path options. Consider the following example (figure 1) where we have pedals connected to three of the ES-5’s loops.In contrast to most other effects switching devices, the ES-5 gives you the option to reconfigure this signal flow, as in the next example (figure 2):This unique and powerful feature applies differently to each patch, allowing you to re-order your pedals at will in order to achieve different sounds and effects. (For further detail, see section 3-1 ). The MIXER is the section that mixes this split signal back into a mono signal sent to the output. Because the mixer circuit contains a small opamp, it also provides two important additional functionsThe mixer can be completely defeated, if parallel routing or carryover functions are not required. (See section 3-4 ):Now that you understand how signal flows through the ES-5 and are starting to get an idea of the possibilities, let’s get underway with looking at the basics of connection and usage.It has no built-in effects at all. To hear any sounds other than a clean guitar signal, at least one effect pedal requires connection to one of the ES5’s loops.Let’s look at how to get started:As outlined earlier, the primary concept of the ES-5 is to give players the power to turn on and off various combinations of connected pedals with the single tap of one of the numbered footswitches. To achieve this, along with various other functions, desired pedal combination must be stored into the ES-5 as a patch (sometimes called a preset).https://www.helpagesl.org/wp-content/plugins/formcraft/file-upload/server/content/files/1626e572064fb4---4-wheeler-110cc-manual.pdf The ES-5 has the capability to store and recall up to 200 different patches. These patches are organised by Group (1-8), Bank (1-5) and Number (1-5).Before doing so though, let’s first familiarise ourselves with the ES-5’s LCD display. When not in EDIT mode, we refer to the LCD display as the Play Screen. The Play Screen has five different display modes that cycle by repeatedly pressing the EXIT button. (We’ll refer to these five variations of the Play Screen throughout this document.)This describes the ES-5’s patch structure, as well as how to access patches. Let’s start with the ES-5 at patch number 111 and move on to create our first patch.On unboxing the ES-5, every patch arrives preset to a completely neutral state with all loops disabled, (i.e. the ES-5’s input signal routes directly to the output). Assuming your guitar amp is set for a clean tone with the ES-5 connected, this neutral state will result in a clean tone with no effects.Let’s now look at how to create and store a patch that gives a distortion tone, by activating Loop 1, which contains, in this case, a BOSS DS-1X Distortion pedal.Flick between the two patches and you’ll see that you have created your first patch. Next, let’s look at another way to switch between your connected effects in real time.The ES-5 has two distinct modes of operation: MEMORY MODE and MANUAL MODE. Up until now, we have been discussing Memory Mode, where you create, store and recall various preset combinations of effects loops into your own patches. At any time though, by holding the BANK footswitch for 2 seconds or more, you’ll see the footswitch indicator LEDs change colour from blue to red, which indicates that the ES-5 has now entered MANUAL MODE. Manual Mode changes the function of the five numbered footswitches of the ES-5. Now, rather than selecting preset patches, the footswitches become direct access switches to turn each loop on or off. Essentially, the ES-5 is now acting like a row of 5 traditional stompboxes.http://www.1000ena.com/wp-content/plugins/formcraft/file-upload/server/content/files/1626e5730b2751---4-way-manual-valve.pdfLet’s say that your preset patch has a Distortion pedal active (Loop 1), but you want to add some Delay (Loop 2) just for a certain short phrase. Rather than take up an entire memory slot for this new sound, switching to manual mode will enable you to turn Loop 2 on or off as required throughout the tune. When you toggle back to MEMORY MODE by depressing the BANK footswitch for 2 seconds, the ES-5 will immediately revert to the settings of the preset patch. By understanding the patch structure, learning how to create and store patches and toggling between MEMORY and MANUAL modes, you will now have a good handle on the basic operation of the ES-5. This is certainly enough information for you to get along with creating your own patches and setting them up for performance. The beauty of the ES-5 though is that it doesn’t stop at this point. The ES-5 has a whole host of advanced functions, many of them unique to the BOSS ES-series Switching Systems. Let’s start digging into some of the ES-5’s exclusive features and discover how to harness its full power in order to fully control your entire rig.As described earlier, most loop switching products have a rudimentary architecture that simply switches effects loops on and off in a serial placement. The ES-5’s Analog Switch Array though (refer section 1-3), gives you the power to completely rearrange the connected order of your effects pedals at will. You can even change the pedal order for every single patch. As many guitar players know, the order in which you connect your effects pedals has a significant impact on the final sound. A wah-wah pedal placed AFTER a distortion pedal will not replicate the classic wah sound we have come to love. Placing the wah-wah BEFORE the distortion pedal creates classic wah tone. A delay pedal will react quite differently too, depending whether it is placed pre or post-distortion.AUTOMOVILESMONTES.COM/userfiles/files/casio-2981-manual.pdf In this next section, we’ll examine how to exploit the effects of changing effects placement by altering the flow of the signal chain within the ES-5. This occurs via the ES-5’s Loop Structure Screen.Therefore, signal flow is from right to left. To demonstrate, let’s connect a DS-1X Distortion Pedal to Loop 1 of the ES-5 and a DD-7 Digital Delay pedal to Loop 2.It is a powerful feature of the ES-5 and yet it marks only the beginning of its advanced signal routing capabilities. Next, let’s look at how the ES-5 creates parallel effects chains.Usually when we connect effects pedals to each other, they connect in SERIES, one after the other:Some examples of uses of parallel chains are:Series connection can result in a very complex sound as the second delay pedal is acting upon an already-delayed signal from pedal 1. By connecting it in parallel, a dry signal blends in with the fuzz to provide more clarity. The ES-5 allows quick and easily exploration of the different tones and textures that are available by using parallel connections.Let’s look at how the ES-5 creates a parallel connection. In this example, we are going to connect a DS-1X Distortion pedal (Loop 1) in parallel with a PH-3 Phase Shifter (Loop 2). The same circuitry that sends the signal to a parallel chain and recombined enables the ES-5 to perform another extremely useful function, known as CARRYOVER.The CARRYOVER function (sometimes called spillover or trails) is a function that is very useful for time-based effects, such as Delay and Reverb. Let’s say you have a patch dialled up with a healthy amount of delay effect that “trails” on after you finish playing. The problem with most effects switchers (and many multi-effects devices too) is that when you switch to the next patch, these delay “trails” will abruptly be cut off.Let’s look at how we can use the carryover function. In this example, we have the following 2 patches preset into the ES-5:Loop 1: DS-1X Distortion. Loop 2: DD-7 Digital Delay set for moderate LEVEL and FEEDBACKClean tone. All loops bypassed.Because the ES-5 has only one internal mixer it means that, depending on the settings, in certain situations, you might not be able to use a parallel connection or the Carryover function may not work. As well as enabling the ES-5 to perform the parallel loop and Carryover functions, the internal MIXER has some secondary functions that are extremely useful and can come in handy in many situations.If you are not using Parallel Chain or CARRYOVER within your patch, then the MIXER will default to the OFF setting. Activating it takes advantage of its other useful functions:The mixer contains a small opamp (Operational Amplifier) that can attenuate or boost the output level of each patch via a user-adjustable gain control. Available level settings are:When the mixer in the ES-5 activates, it automatically buffers the output signal to preserve your guitar tone. ( For more information on buffers, see Section 3-5 )To access the internal MIXER: You’ll see this screen:It is a fact of physics that when you start running your passive guitar signal through cables longer than around 18’, you will experience some audible tone degradation. This is due to the capacitance of the cable itself acting on the relatively weak, high impedance signal that is output from a guitar with passive pickups. The capacitance of the cable creates a filter effect, similar to rolling off the tone knob on your guitar. The longer the cable, the more the treble (and even high mids) will be rolled off. For some guitar players, this effect is an important part of their sound. Many players in the 1960’s and 1970’s used “curly cables” which had a lot of capacitance to intentionally dull down the sound of their bright amps. For many players though, the sparkling clarity of a pure guitar signal is preferred. A buffer is an electronic device that provides an ideal impedance input to “receive” the signal from your guitar pickups and converts it to a stronger low-impedance signal that allows it to better “flow” through the rest of your signal chain. As we have already discussed, the ES-5 has the capability to buffer the output signal via the internal mixer, however the MOST critical area to place a buffer (if you wish to use one) is at the START of your signal chain, right after the guitar pickups. For this reason, the ES-5 has a buffer located at its INPUT stage. This buffer is selectable for each patch. The ES-5 Input Buffer defaults to ON for every patch, however you may wish to bypass the input buffer if:To defeat the Input Buffer on any given patch: Intended as a sort of “master control” for your rig, the ES-5 also incorporates powerful capabilities to have one-touch control over many aspects of your rig. As well as the simple functions of turning effects on or off in your control chain, the ES-5 can also send:The ES-5 can control external equipment by two main mechanisms:These jacks connect to any external device that use ?” jacks for control functions, (e.g. amplifier footswitch jack, delay pedal tap tempo input, modulation pedal expression input etc.). Each jack can control up to two different devices with the use of a Y-Cable.These control signals generate from within the ES-5 (see sections 4-2, 4-3, 4-7 ) or by connecting an external control pedal to the CTL IN jack (see section 4-5 ).The ES-5 is a fully fledged MIDI controller and can be used to control any external device with a MIDI IN port, including digital effects pedals, rackmount processors, MIDI-Capable guitar amps, sequencers and even lighting controllers. The ES-5 can output MIDI Program Change (PC), Continuous Control (CC) or MIDI Clock Sync messages. Each ES-5 patch can transmit up to 8 different MIDI messages simultaneously. The ES-5 also has a MIDI IN port, allowing control from other MIDI devices such as sequencers or master clock devices.For the rest of this document, we’re going to take a look at how to implement some of the more commonly used control options, to get you started down the road of discovering the ES-5’s full capability.One of the most basic (yet useful) control functions of the ES-5 is the ability to switch channels on your guitar amplifier and save that channel setting as part of your ES-5 patch. The ES-5 can do this for any amplifier that uses a standard ?” jack for footswitch control. Please consult the amplifier manufacturer to determine suitability of the amplifier controlled by an external switcher such as the ES-5. Let’s look at how we can connect the ES-5 to a guitar amplifier’s footswitch jack and use the ES-5 to change channels.The ES-5 can send a momentary pulse signal, rather than a latching signal, within the PLAY OPTION menu as follows. Example:If this is the case, then set C1 status to “INV”. The Play Options save automatically Another of the most useful features is the ability for the ES-5 to set the TAP TEMPO of any external delay pedal with a tap tempo input jack.It is a very common feature of modern delay pedals to be able to set their delay time by way of an external TAP TEMPO footswitch. The ES-5 has the power to alleviate you of manually tapping the tempo into a pedal, by sending a precise, tempo-controlled series of taps through the EXT CTL jack when you select a patch. Let’s see how to set up the ES-5 to automatically generate Tap Tempo signals from an EXT CTL jack.This setting depends on your delay pedal. i.e. if your delay pedal requires three taps to set the tempo, then you should set the C1 parameter to “ TP3 ” Note that the bottom right hand side of the display shows the current tempo setting in BPM.Selecting d (Eighth note) will send tap pulses at twice the speed of the tempo selected. In this case, we have selected a dotted eight note. Built with portability in mind, the ES-5 has a limited number of footswitches on its chassis.Connecting an expression pedal allows you to do two things: This allows you to use the Expression Pedal to deliver a full range of control to any supported parameter of your MIDI capable device and is a very powerful expansion tool.See the chart below for four examples of external CTL pedal configurations. If latching style operation is required, you can configure it within the ES-5. Once you have connected an external control pedal, it can perform a myriad of functions, which we will look at a little later (see section 4-6). For now though, let’s look at how to configure an external footswitch as a manual TAP TEMPO to change the delay time on a DD-7 delay pedal.This means that only CTL 1 is active and ready for use. CTL 2 will not be accessible.You’ll see this screen:In this case, it assigned to send a signal out of Ctl1. (i.e. EXT CTL 1). Leave these settings as they are.The two available options are MOM or TGL: Momentary or Toggle (Latching). For a Tap Tempo, Momentary is correct, so we do not need to change anything.Note the delay tempo.Play guitar and note that the delay tempo has now changed. Hopefully, you can see from the example above, that using external controls is a very useful tool with dozens of different applications achievable (depending on your connected gear.). In actual fact, the ES-5 has the capability to not only use external pedals to perform advanced tasks, but its own footswitches can be reconfigured and repurposed to perform almost any task you can think of.For those who find the ES-5 footswitch layout not to their liking, or have some buttons that are surplus to requirement, the ES-5 offers the ability to reassign the footswitches to a variety of different tasks.To reassign the function of any footswitch on the ES-5: Let’s take a closer look:The advanced user should become very familiar with how to use these assigns to perform a variety of tasks.Target: What parameter(s) do we wish to control using the source signal.Let’s look at an advanced control function and how to program it: You’ll see this screen:This very useful assign source allows you to assign functionality to the illuminated footswitch of whichever patch number currently selected.We wish the Phaser to operate only while the footswitch is depressed.Congratulations! You now understand how to perform advanced assign functions by being able to select a Source and assign it to a Target. Every patch on the ES-5 allows up to eight independent CTL Assigns which, as you can imagine, opens up a huge amount of control power particularly once you add MIDI into the mix. Whilst MIDI commands can be assigned using the above CTL Assigns, you can also assign a further 8 static MIDI controls within the Patch settings for even more control options. Let’s take a closer look into the ES-5’s MIDI control capability.Although some guitarists approach the concept of MIDI control with extreme trepidation, there is, in reality, little reason to be afraid of it. The ES-5 is capable of performing both Program Changes and Control Change (Continuous Control) output functions via MIDI.This is the most common type of MIDI control used by guitar players. By using the ES-5 to broadcast a MIDI program change message to another MIDI-compatible device, (for example a Boss DD-500 Digital Delay), it means that when you press a footswitch button to select a patch on the ES-5, it can simultaneously change the patch of the DD-500. You can apply a different DD-500 patch to every ES-5 patch, without ever needing to touch the DD-500 during performance. Let’s look at how to setup the ES-5 to perform program changes via MIDI. We’ll use a DD-500 pedal connected into Loop 1.Note: This configuration means that the ES-5 will be the controller for the DD-500. Not vice versa. Turn Loop1 ON. You’ll then see this screen. These relate to more advanced MIDI usage, unnecessary for this document.
