Bass Driver FAQs
What frequencies does the Bass Driver Overdrive / Distortion pedal control? The tone knob in particular. What frequency does it effect? Also, Where is the distortion centered at frequency wise?
The tone knob effects several frequencies. It is not a simple high shelf or parametric filter with a fixed frequency. It is composed of three filters with individual frequency centers that change whether the tone knob it set to cut or boost. When set to boost the tone knob effects frequencies from 1450 to 5000 and beyond, and when set to cut it effects 725 to 4000 and beyond. This is what we call "spectral contouring EQ." The filters are adjusted to give an optimal sound for boost and cut.
The distortion isn't really "centered" around a particular frequency. The amount of distortion is frequency dependent, but it changes with the setting of the morph knob. Generally the lows aren't distorted as much, but there isn't a particular frequency for how low the distortion goes. It mainly depends on the gain setting, and the setting of the morph knob.
Here is a very general overview of frequencies affected for min, mid and max setting of the morph knob:
My X-Series pedal goes through batteries quickly. Is this normal?
The X-Series pedals consume batteries at a tremendous rate. For longest battery life, we suggest fresh, high quality ALKALINE batteries, or the the PS200R power supply available from our Outlet Store at http://outlet.digitech.com.
