CONVERTING THE BEHRINGER
DD-400 DIGITAL DELAY GUITAR PEDAL
TO A SYNTHESIZERS.COM PANEL MODULE
by Dana Countryman
We're getting close
to being done now, friends!
There are a couple of design things that I'd re-do, if I could.
One is, that the Input and Output markings are a little close
physical jacks. I purposely left the washer off, when I mounted
the jacks here, to leave more space for reading the words on the
Also, the "R.
OUT" and "L. OUT" should have been reversed. Oops.
[Hey, I work in healthcare...!]
Carefully put your new module into your synth. With all the stuff
sticking out the back, it takes a bit
of adjusting, but it's not too difficult to get the panel to fit.
For the power, I already had a hole drilled
in the back of my cabinet, and it was a breeze to thread the plug-end
of the wall wart in from the back,
and into the module.
I fired it up, and
it sounds great!!
I think it was worth the effort to do all this.
I'm sure I'll be using this delay effect a lot, now that it's
more convenient, AND it's a real module in my 66-space system.
[One note: I made
one change to the pot wiring. I ended up reversing the leads to
the "Time" pot,
so it would get FASTER, as I turned the knob to the right, and
SLOWER, while turning it to the left.
It apparently was wired the other way on the original guitar pedal,
from the factory.]
Hope you enjoy your
"new" module for Dotcom!
