    Hey guys,

    I have my pedalboard home this week and decided to compile a list of presets (and useful info on the ducking feature) for the DD-500, pulled from the two TGP threads that sold me on the pedal.

    Please feel free to add your own settings. I bought this pedal because it has the capacity to get weird, as well as maintain great digital, tape and analog sounds.

    I hope some find this useful!

    From my pages doc:

    "DD-500 settings list from TGP

    Bright to dark (input var)

    So for this one, I set up an analog delay, went to the assign menu, turned on assign 1, chose "input" as my trigger, which is input volume (and it's adjustable), chose "tone" as the target that's being changed and chose the hi and low. Boom.

    Tera Echo:

    Ducking info:

    Here's how I would set it up. Crank the post ducking amount to 100 which means it should cut the delays completely out while you're playing. Set the sensitivity to where it cuts out while you're playing but not to a ridiculous degree. Then you can dial back the post depth to so it doesn't cut the delay completely while you're playing. Maybe half or a little more. Whatever you want.
    The pre control is a little different. I don't quite get it, honestly. Instead of turning the delay down, it cuts down on the signal going TO the delay, so the delay is quieter...just in a different way.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this! I kept procrastinating going through that mega-thread to get settings (i.e. Tremolo, Flanger, etc).

    The DD-500 is a great unit, you get what you put into it.

    Well, so much for just thanks... I just got my DD500 (trading in an ancient DL4), and the level of complexity is just absurd! I'm just figuring out how much effort goes into working out those great sounds, though I've only tried punching in a few of yours so far. I keep messing things up when I adjust some system parameter, but I figure this is going to have a serious learning curve... Just got a SY-300, so I'm feeling a bit stupid right now, as these are some complicated bits of tech! Trying to get away from my 13-pin-cabled guitar synths, though I may have spent less time learning to use my VG-99 than this delay pedal. No computer based editor yet, right? Anyways, thanks again!

    It gets as complicated as you want, really. You can get deep into the editing or just use the knobs on the pedal.

    There's also a DD-500 page on facebook with a bunch of TGP users and the full patch list (editable).

    For those that aren't aware. the TGP megathread talks about someone who built a software editor for the DD-500. Haven't checked it out, nor do I know if it has access to all the functions, but I know it'll definitely be useful for some.
