Effects

Common FX Settings

Parameter Description
Drive Adjusts the amount of overdrive, distortion, or fuzz.
Bass Adjusts the bass level.
Mid Adjusts the midrange level.
Treble Adjusts the treble level.
Speed Adjusts the speed of the effect, with higher settings providing faster rates. Press the knob to toggle between Hz and note values. Choosing a Hz value provides a specific modulation speed in cycles per second; choosing a note value provides a time based on the current tempo. Not all Speed parameters can be synced to note values, as they may be non-linear and highly interactive.
Rate Adjusts the rate of the effect, with higher settings providing faster rates. Press the knob to toggle between numeric and note values. Not all Rate parameters can be synced to note values, as they may be non-linear and highly interactive.
Time Adjusts the delay/repeat time, with higher settings providing longer delays. Press the knob to toggle between ms and note values. Choosing a ms value provides a specifc time in milliseconds; choosing a Note Division value provides a time based on the current tempo. With a note division value, this parameter’s value is retained when changing models.
Depth Adjusts the intensity of the modulation. Higher settings result in more extreme pitch bending, wobble, or throb, depending on the effect.
Feedback Adjusts the amount of delayed signal fed back into the effect. Higher settings can provide more dramatic textures.
Decay Predelay Sets the length of time the reverb effect sustains. Determines the time before the reverb effect is heard.
Headroom Some mod and delay pedals’ internal signal paths exhibit a bit of grit, especially when placed after a high-gain amp block. Negative values increase the perceived amount of grit; positive values clean things up a bit. At 0dB, the model behaves like the original pedal.
Low Cut Filters a portion of the block’s bass frequencies, which can help remove rumble.
High Cut Filters a portion of the block’s treble frequencies, which can help remove high-end harshness.
Mix Blends the effected “wet” signal vs. the “dry” signal passed through the block. When set to 0%, the path bypasses the effect completely. When set to 100%, the entire path is fed through the effect, and no dry thru signal is heard.
Level Adjusts the overall output level of the effects block. Be careful not to boost this parameter too high on multiple blocks, as digital clipping could occur. You should typically leave this at 0.0dB for most blocks. Where the original pedal’s level or volume knob behavior doesn’t really apply to dB values, 0.0-10 may be used.
Trails Trails Off: Any delay repeats or reverb decays are instantly muted when the block is bypassed. Trails On: Any delay repeats or reverb decays continue to decay naturally when the block is bypassed.
