BOSS DD-7 Digital Delay

All I can say is this- "BOSS, why didn't you tell me???" GearTrappers, your day has come! Today I found out (you may already know) BOSS is releasing their new DD-7 Digital Delay pedal. The major online retailers have them up and good to go (stock not withstanding).

We're all familiar with digital delay staples like the DD-1, DD-3, and the DD-6. BOSS basically invented the delay stompbox, or at least made it most available to the public. Now, they've gone and out done themselves again. I obviously haven't gotten a chance to play this boy yet, but having said that, it does look like it packed to the gills with awesome features.

Below I've included some specs that I lifted off the internet. If anyone gets a chance to try one out, hit me up and let me know how it was!

**************

Expanded Delay Time- Up to 6.4 seconds of delay time is available with the DD-7, a marked increase from its predecessor. In addition, Hold mode allows up to 40 seconds of input to be recorded for creating sound on sound performances.

Delay Modes- The DD-7 is equipped with two innovative and advanced delay modes. Modulation Delay provides chorus-flavored sounds. Analog Delay offers a modeled simulation of the classic BOSS DM-2, beloved for its characteristic warmth.

External Control- For hands-free control of the DD-7, an external footswitch and Expression pedal (sold separately) can be used. Tap tempo can be controlled from an external footswitch, while delay time, feedback, and effect level can be changed on the fly via Expression pedal.

Stereo Output- Create amazing effects with the DD-7 s stereo output, such as spatial audio sweeps via true stereo panning. You can also use the stereo outputs to create separate dry and wet signal paths handy for recording and live-performance control.
