The Digitech Obscura delay pedal is something special. Even if you already have a delay pedal on your board this is a piece of gear you need to check out.... it's got a lot more to offer.
Starting with the basics.... This pedal has 4 dials and a switch. Level, Time, Tone and a 4 way selector for the type of delay. Then there's the tail switch, this turns on buffered bypass which allows the delay signal to continue being heard after the effect is bypassed.
The Obscura’s four delay types can be darkened, degraded and distorted on the fly with the stacked Tone and Degrade controls. This combination of options means you can dial in almost nay kind of delay tone's you want quickly and easily.
Here's what Digitech have to say about the Obscura
The Obscura Altered Delay from DigiTech allows you to turn your delays upside down and inside out. The Obscura’s four delay types can be darkened, degraded and distorted on the fly with the stacked Tone and Degrade controls. Combine these controls with the Obscura’s Repeat/Hold feature and lose yourself in long, trippy, gurgling repeats or backwards-manipulated sonic mayhem. In addition to its Tone and Degrade controls, the Obscura features independent Level, Delay Mode and stacked Time and Repeats controls. Complimenting those versatile controls, the Obscura offers four excellent-sounding Analog, Tape, Lo-Fi, and Reverse types, Tap Tempo mode with Beat Divisions, Stereo Inputs/Outputs, a Delay Tails On/Off Switch and True Bypass circuitry.With its compact size and vacuum-style footswitch, the Obscura furthers DigiTech’s evolution in pedal design. We’ve put years of experience into every detail of its mechanical and sonic blueprint. The Obscura uses a 9V DC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedalboard.
