WEEK 8. INSPIRATION FOR DESIGN OF A DIGITAL DEALY FOOT PEDAL

Digital Delay Footpedal (Figure 1)


Having seen the performing article in practice developed it as in inspiration from many other guitar foot pedals such as the BOSS digital delay pedal. Linked up via an interface connected to a laptop computer the pedal was easily performed with inclusive of distinctive features that other commercial foot pedals offer.  

An ability to turn the product off from use of a delayed signal between 250 milliseconds and one second proved successful and there were very few overall design flaws. 

Further development of the foot pedal would include optional reverb settings of which at the time of presentation were left out due to unwanted errors or over complication also being aware it often rare for commercial foot pedals to offer further options that otherwise specified.
