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».

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. Did you find this review helpful? Unfortunately I managed to slip with an oscilloscope probe and shorted two pins on the DRAM chip, and killed an input pin. The replacements are a little taller than the originals, so I cut the legs a little shorter and soldered some bus bar to them, then soldered the bus wire into the PCB.

Someone had already taken a crack at fixing it, it was missing knobs and a back panel. Do you know where I can reorder it and which exactly to get?

I replaced djgitech long-leg alpha pots. Lopsided ‘s user review 5 Like Tweet Submit Email. The second win is pdx internal design. This could have been a cultural difference, as Japanese manufacturers seemed to prefer going for custom ICs and offsetting the cost against using them in lots of products Yamaha have also done this.

All of the pedals in this series came with snap-in plastic battery doors that are not held captive by the enclosure i. Hey i got sone issues with my pds Everything is done with standard CMOS logic. If it let me go I replaced the trimmer and set it to the middle of kanual it’s range, based on how the other was set.


Delay time is adjusted by 3!

Re: Digitech PDS8000/PDS2000

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. Please send me your email to maneco gmail dot com and i can send you the pds schematic. I traced signals back from the delay range switch to a 74HC04 hex inverter, which looked dead.

Dgitech, two seconds, it is obviously too short to sample anything. Ja zehre a Chance that i could send oh to you for repair? Ram Chauhan 28 22000 at I repaired 4 of these delays recently. With the new chip the delay rates could be carefully dialled in to 2 seconds pretty quickly. I am pretty noob at this but I know I can resolder it Delay time is varied by changing the frequency of pdw main clock signal that shifts digital samples into and out of DRAM memory.

Once the recorded phrase, therefore, we must switch to “Trigger” ie bending, super convenient This means they get lost, and I have never actually seen one. I would like to see how this was implemented, as it should have 4x the memory of the PDS It is here also that the Trigger Input makes sense Hi, This 2 second delay is a ton of fun! 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 manaul.

Here is a braindump: The length of it depends on the settings of the repeat range. Log in Become a member. Or do you have mnaual idea where i could Let oh repair? Digital Delay, yes, but vintage digital delay!


This one was partially working when I got it. This pedal may well be digital, it can become self-oscillation, which is very cool. With Infinite Repeat function and the change in pitch when you move the knob Delay Time, There are enough really fun!

This actually worked pretty well, but replacing these pots and running wires to the PCB is probably a better long-term solution. Raju Solanki 16 April at There are two features that win me over.

Digitech PDS 2000?

Anyway, it’s extremely complicated to use for a result frankly not great My reasoning is that DRAM should be completely manua in this time, so I probe the DRAM with an oscilloscope and adjust delay length until the frequency of data in and out matches the DRAM size divided by nominal delay length in seconds.

An input jack, a jack and a trigger input jack output. If it is used as a delay pedal, it is very simple: 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.

This was in the worst condition. In contrast, we try to use the sampler mode, the problems appear. Newer Post Older Post Home.
