Featuring newly-developed Boss technology, the DD-500 digital delay pedal is one of the most powerful and versatile stombox delay pedals offered by Boss. This pedal is equipped with 12 distinc delay modes with deep editing capabilities, along with a graphic display, patch memories, MIDI, and more. Whether you're looking for straightforward echo patches, or you want to create huge, spaced-out sounds, the DD-500 will help you reach your tonal goals.

With the DD-500's 12 delay modes, there are plenty of options available to create any style of delay sound you can think up. From vintage delays and tape echoes to modern, pitch-shifting delay lines with filtering and other processing, this pedal has a wide palette of sounds to take advantage of. The parameter knobs on the DD-500 make it easy to edit and shape sounds to your liking, and each delay type also includes a semi-parametric 4-band EQ, modulation, ducking, and many other parameters that allow you to get as in-depth as you want to create great tones.

Not only does the DD-500 offer a wide variety of delay sounds, they are also offered with very high-quality sound. The DSP engine within the DD-500 runs at 32-bit/96 kHz for very high resolution output that won't degrade the sound of your guitar tone. Plus, for those times when you don't want this pedal in your signal chain, you have a choice of either buffered or true bypass modes. When using the buffered bypass, the carryover ensures that any delay trails are not cut off unnaturally when the effect is switched off.

The large LCD screen on the DD-500 allows for visual confirmation of many of the pedals' parameters including delay time and patch ID information, along with easy navigation of parameter tweaks, patch naming, and system management. There's also a USB port onboard that you can use to connect to a computer for backing up your patches and for MIDI control with your favorite DAW program.

By default, the three footswitches on the DD-500 are programmed for settings such as patch on/off, bypass, bank selection, and tap tempo; however, they can be customized to function in different ways as well. You can program them in ways such as to provide top-level access to three different delay patches, or to use two patches at once for layered sounds. Instead of tap tempo, you can assign the TAP/CTL switch to various real-time functions like Warp or Twist for a wide range of expressive effects. If you've got an expression pedal, you can hook that up to the DD-500 for an even wider range of parameters that can be manipulated on-the-fly.
