I love this thing! I have been playing guitar seriously for about twenty-three years, have been in several rock bands, and currently play weekly for my church group; so I know a little about axe grinding. When I first began my quest for a new wah-wah pedal, I wound up at the local store. I test drove the Ibanez Demon, the Steve Vai Morely, and even decided to give the DigiTech Whammy a whirl, though that was not my original mission. I really liked the features of the Whammy, but needed the wah, so I wound up with the EX-7 Expression Factory. Though the Whammy features are limited, it still had the main sounds I liked. The two versions of the wah are outstanding and the Dunlop version reminds me a lot of my old Cry Baby of years past (but without all of the noise and a more fluid response). I must admit; however, that I am way more partial to the VOX Clyde McCoy, as it sounds more like Hendrix. The four other features (Space Station, Uni Vibe, Leslie, and Flanger are bonuses). I have never been a big fan of the Uni Vibe era, but many modern groups; like Third Day, for example, use this sound so it is coming in handy for my church activities and does sound quite authentic. Also, I played through the Space Station during a prayer call and the Preacher?s wife said it had a haunting, yet appropriate effect for the situation. I have been a DigiTech fan for years and regularly play though my RP-1 (yes, I still use my 1991 DigiTech RP-1 and will until it dies), so I expected the same quality, but was a little let down. I had to return the first unit because it would just stop working and had to be recalibrated six times before I finally exchanged it for the one I currently have. So far, it has worked flawlessly and the only complaint I have is that the EX-7 does not work through my effects loop, but I think that is a limitation of the Uni-Gain function of my processor, and not the pedal.

The EX-7 is a good idea and the sounds of the effects are superb and for home recording it's a good deal. There are disadvantages on stage. Biggest one is that even if you would use the additional channel switch at extra cost, you still would need to kneel down, as there is no memory within the EX-7 to remember the set of the controls when you go from one effect to the next and back. Further, the bypass works only on one effect, so how do you bypass when you use the other effects?I solved the last problem by putting the EX7 in a separate loop, adjust the settings before the song and then loop it in when needed. The nice thing for me is that these effects are usally not needed throughout a set, so when you use it in every other song, you have a powerful effects pedal which uses not much space. But another disadvantage is the AC need at 9 V with 1.3 A - and that means, you need a different power supply that cannot be used with other effect boxes together. So, good idea, but there's room for improvement.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

As I have stated b4, I don't review or use equipment that I don't consider outstanding. This pedal easily fits the bill. Don't purchase unless you want new sounds, familiar throbs (Uni-vibe, Leslie) with really cool parameter adjustment, and the ability to turn heads (and ears). It also features distortion if needed. Hard to do this one justice in a short review, so lets end with saying:it's an easy to use wah pedal with serious sound additions(stereo orchestra, anyone?). Extra points for ease-of-use and well-written instruction manual.

You can't use all the effects

By Muldoon

from Denver, CO

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

Don't buy this thinking you can use all the features live. It basically has 7 patches with 'on the fly' adjustment. The problem is you use the same knobs for all patches. This means that once you've dialed in your first patch you can't perfect a second one without messing up the settings on the first.It has a lot of nice features that aren't integrated well. The only way I found to get a distortion setting alone is to use the whammy patch. Just be careful not to let the rocker pedal whammy you out of tune. This is the type of thing you don't want to have to deal with on stage.

A couple improvements needed!

By Big Al-P3HNb

from Calif.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

As most have said, this is a tuff little dude to tame. I have had it for a couple of years and just now starting to get the hang of it. The synth, when set at 12:00 (all knobs) sounds great for a keyboard comp. That 12:00 setting gives pretty darn good results. The drawback? Make it digital, so we can customize each sound and SAVE THEM! C'mon digitech, It can't be that hard! The distortion patches are cool, but when you set one, like the Muff, the knob settings don't sound so good for other distortion patches. The distortion patches ned to be independant of the other sounds. The Crybaby I like, but the vox wah has a weak spot in the play of the pedal and gives a strange sound, that is quite noticeable. Someone just wrote that you can set the whammy to octave up, and turn the mix down to far counter clockwise and get distortion only. I will try that!

Cool Pedal

By leadgtr7

from Va Beach

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

this pedal is fairly good at what it does. i don't like the wah models because there is not enough sweep to the pedal but the whammy is awesome and the space station models is pretty cool. if you are looking at this to use as a whammy pedal go for it! its alot smaller than the whammy pedal is

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I Bought the EX-7 when I quit using a line 6 processor and built a huge pedal board. I use the univibe to get the "Floyd" sound and it is and awesome thing. The Leslie efect is great for recording background tracks under your rhythm guitar track. I great pedal for the money.

My love hate relationship...

By Imer

from US

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I have tried to look for a replacement for the sounds that i get with it. 2-1/2 years later its the only original pedal still left on my board. "Why?" you say? because this pedal keeps on giving!! just yesterday i found a new usuable sound. 'nuf said. "why do you hate it?" you say? couple of major flaws. Stereo inputs! i don't understand companies that give you stereo outputs but not inputs; talk about underestimating your customers! as some have said no way to store presets. The footswitch option...meh; Midi anyone! a twenty year old technology should be mandatory for multi-digital-effects. I play electronica through guitar so my opinion differs from purist of any kind. for experimentalist, like myself, will find that this pedal plays nice with all sorts of other effects. As far as the sound quality they sound superb (in stereo!) excluding the distortions. Then again, i'm not trying to says that the effects sound like the gear they are emulating. I have absolutely no preconceive reference of how they "should" sound like.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

this pedal is not all that it is said to be, i bought it last week and really do not like it. the first thing i noticed is that its hard to turn on... i practicaly had to jump on it to turn it on. the wha pedals were avrage, nothing special. and the space station is fun to play with for a second. but all the other effects are hard to use and poor quality.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal, tried it out and returned it the next day. Although it has many features, I felt like most of the sounds were a bit "thin". I bought the Original Crybaby Wah and to me the Digitech did not even come close to matching the Crybaby sound in terms of the richness (and depth) of the wah sound. I do own other digitech products which I am very happy with, but IMO this pedal leaves a lot to be desired. You will definitly want to compare before you buy.

Great modulation effects.

By 505coyote

from Albuquerque, NM

See all my reviews

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

A lot of the effects on this thing I just don't use, but the ones I do use are awesome. The Leslie speaker model, which is what I primarily use this for, makes it worth the price alone. The space station synth is second to none too. The uni-vibe is spot on as well, and the flanger is the best I have ever used. Those are the only effects on this thing that I use, mostly because the dials on this thing are a PAIN. If I only use those effects, I can switch between them without having to adjust the settings and everything sounds great. However, the wah models and the whammy pedal are worthless to me because I would have to adjust everything, and that won't work in a live setting. Additionally, the distortion is worthless for my needs. Let me reiterate - The modulation effects on this thing are AMAZING, and it is worth it to buy this pedal just for those, but the rest of it is just too much trouble to use. The leslie modeler and an auto wah together, though, is simply magnificent!

A year with a monster

By BUBBA-nbgKo

from Washington State

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I could have used such an amazing title for my pultzer but I realy didn't like this preamp/ effects pedal last year when I bought it. Getting to know this little advisor was quite painfull. We are talking several hours crouched over this thing trying to find just that perfict spot and then realizing after I changed the settings that getting back to that sound was impossible. The physical variations are staggering. HA ! Insane! It took almost a year (im not that bright)to relize that it was absolutly nesesary to right down the settings of sounds I liked but once I made that change(Make up your own system), I was in bliss. It is really amazing what this thing can do to an amp and/or PA. I just don't like how hard I have to push down on the front to get it to turn on.

Closest you'll get to some of these pedals....

By Grooveman26

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I am obsessed with the Digitech Space Station, but after countless battles on Ebay, I couldn't get ahold of one. Then I gave this pedal a whirl, the synth swell is worth it alone. It's a beautiful effect, in fact, the store I bought it from didn't even know the pedal did that and all of the employees gathered around to see what was making all the "noise". The other effects on the pedal are genuine and great. The only beef I have with the pedal is that some distortions quieter than others and the pedal can be a little bit of a pain to turn on/off when your sitting down. Some people have commented on the treadle length; saying it's too short. But I personally think that it is a fine length.

sweet pedal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

just got this thing and i can already tell its going to take me a while to figure the whole thing out. it just has so much stuff, but yet the sound quality is actually really good for a multi effect. u have to be standing up to turn it on, but i kind of like the fact that its built for toughness. the distortion feature is really good, and the space station is probably the coolest thing i've heard. its really good if you're looking for something a little different than regular effects. the rotary speaker is really good too ... i think every serious guitarist should have that effect just because its like a really natural sounding phase. not a big fan of the flange or the whammy, but i don't really like those effects anyway. all this plus two different kinds of wahs saves you a lot of space on your pedal board and it probably won't break.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

There are few words to describe the versatility of this pedal. Maybe: awesome, industructable, a tonal nirvana, overall useability. The wahs are replicated to the letter, and the whammy and univibe sound exellent. You can get some vey beautifull sounds out of the flanger and the leslie, and I think that bringing back the space station was an increbible move on Digitechs part.I have nothing more to say but buy this pedal

WOW!

By Chuck J

from Houston, TX

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

This thing is sweeeet! I probably wouldn't have bought all of the pedals that this thing models but I certainly wanted the space station, whammy, and the univibe. The models are amazing. All in all a 10. Here are a few things to be aware of though. (1) The pedal has a shorter throw than some other expression pedals. (2) The space station and whammy do not include every single function of the original (for example, the whammy does not have the divebomb effect). However, I still think this pedal is awesome. I'm also pleased because I can put it on my pedal board in the place of my curent wah so it doesn't take up any extra space.

One great pedal #2

By Hammster-ivPFk

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

In an earlier evaluation, I talked a lot about the EX-7's Great Wah and Whammy functions, but realized after submittal that I had omitted the critical distortion portion of the review. Truth be known, I had not utilized this function as much because I was routing it through my RP1 (using ?its? distortions) and had not really scrutinized the EX-7 distortion models beyond a simple familiarization test. I decided to perform a more comprehensive analysis of the pedal by using it as a stand-alone unit; plugged directly into a PA system and man, what a difference! All of the distortions models offer amazing tonal distinctions and my favorites are the Big Muff coupled with the VOX (again, reminiscent of Hendrix), the Metal Zone, and Metal Master. The crunch and sustain elements were in your face and yet also maintained great clarity and guitar tonal integrity while affording many ?tweak? capabilities with the three contour controls. One other aspect that blew me away was the superb CIT (cabinet emulation) circuitry, which truly transformed my PA into a high-powered guitar stack (something my RP1 does not accomplish very well?maybe I should look into upgrading my RP-1 after all). Anyway, this pedal rocks and its three program offerings are a cinch to use and highly functional. Given that this is my second review of the same product, I think one may correctly ascertain that I TRULY LOVE THIS PEDAL!

Almost perfect

Ask me a question

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I bought this for the Univibe and the Rotory speaker. Both sound very good. I would say that all the sounds on this thing are very good. The only downsides to this pedal is that switching between effects requires turning a knob on the pedal. I guess you can get a footswitch but without it you need to bend down and turn it to this or that. Which is fine at home practicing or recording but makes switching on the fly live very difficult. If you were going to use this live you would have plan ahead. So that limits the pedal. If you could easily switch between programs this would be the perfect pedal. You also can't use the distortion w/o the effects. Not such a big deal in MHO since most people dial in thier own distortion. But again, limiting. If this pedal were a little more flexible I'd say it's easily worth the money. The Univibe and Rotory alone are worth that. But because of it's limitations I would say it's about $50 over what is should be. Definately check one out at the store before you buy and you'll understand. However the sounds this thing makes is very close to the audio samples.

Great Tool

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

This pedal puts a wide variety of creative tools at your feet. I've owned this pedal for a few months now and I still find myself stumbling across cool tones, or effects similar to the original pedals. The distortion feature is cool, but I don't find myself using it that much. I might use it a little more if I could use just the distortion by itself, but oh well. The effects are great, especially for a musician like me who doesn't devote himself to just one genre. There's an optional footswitch that's supposed to make it easier to switch between effects, but it doesn't seem to allow you to save the settings for each effect. I've only looked at it though, so you'd have to try it out for yourself. You could go out and spend a thousand dollars buying these pedals individually, or you can spend a few hundred bucks on this pedal, and maybe another Wah to combine with some of the more unique effects. It's a great deal, and I recommend this pedal to everyone that asks about it. I love to use it; my friends love to use it. You won't find a pedal with a more useful variety of effects than this one.

Comments about DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I've played through a real DigiTech Whammy, and the octave up on it kept absolutely NO lows on a bass. I'm a big Justin Chancellor fan, so I tend to like pitch shifting. Even so, I played on one of these my friend had. I LOVED it. The Whammy is spot on to the original WH-1, versus the newer WH-3. I also love the pre-distortion gave it a nice flavor to my bass. I gave it a 4.0 on value though, because of the price. It's a bit much for a modeling pedal, no matter how nice it is.
