DigiTech Announces DOD Envelope Filter 440 and Drop Pedals

DigiTech DOD Envelope Filter 440 and Drop Pedals

Digitech has announced two new stompbox effects for bass and guitar to their lineup including the The Drop and a reissue of the DOD Envelope 440. Both pedals feature true bypass and 9-volt operation.

The DOD Envelope Filter 440 is a new take on the vintage pedal with upgrades including true bypass, a 9-volt power adapter jack, and a Voice switch. The Voice switch toggles between Up and Down settings to emphasize different frequency bands. Digitech suggests that the down position dishes out a big dub sound on bass. The pedal also has Level and Range knobs to adjust teh sensitivity and range of the envelope’s sweep.

The Drop is a dedicated polyphonic drop tune pedal for both bass and guitar that lets users drop their tuning down from one semitone to a full octave. Drawing its algorithm from the company’s Whammy DT pedal, the Drop has eight drop tune and pitch shifting intervals to choose from. It also has an Octave+Dry mode to blend in your original signal with the note an octave down. The Momentary/Latching switch allows for players engage the effect by stepping on and releasing the footswitch for a hammer-on or pull-off effect.

The Digitech DOD Envelope Filter 440 will be available in June with a retail price of $149.95 while The Drop will be available in July with a retail price of $249.95.
