Well, I want to start off by saying that if you play music that isn't experimental or easily open to new ideas, this is not the pedal for you. But if you like to experiment with trippy sounds, then keep reading. This is an incredible pedal with some really strange sounds packed into it. I bought this pedal awhile ago when I was in a funk rock band, and found great use in the envelope setting, which was easy to use and sounded really kool playing funk. But then I began to play in more standered metal bands in the likes of Metallica, and the pedal kind of sat on the shelf. However, when I began jamming with my new band, which is a strange mix of progressive metal, Industrial and phycedelic rock, this puppy was brought right back into my line up. I find myself using the filter setting the most, since it has some great vowel sounds and sounds really trippy when paired up with a phaser pedal. I'm going to try to incorporate some more of the effects into my music, like the synthesizer, which sounds awesome as well if you spend some time tweaking it. All in all, this pedal is great for people who want to try new things. I definately recomend it.

I bought this pedal (used, like new) and i was intent on finding a good classic Jerry envelope filter sound (listen to Estimated Prophet) and this pedal does the job, but half assed.The only good setting is the first envelope filter setting (second is alright but overall, not worth using) every other setting is horrible and digitech should be ashamed at themselves for marketing this product. But the envelope setting is very digital sounding, very un-organic, its hard to explain.. theres hardly a purpose for the range knob, anything over 9 o'clock is screechy highs...useless...the control helps with the sensitivity knob (once again, anything over 12-1 o'clock...useless) but i usually use an overdrive (TS9) and a slight gain boost (mxr) for a dirty sound with the guitar volume at 7 for rythem and 10 for solo's....the volume of other pedals greatly affect how this pedal will sound.Overall, if you want the melodic tone of the Mu Tron like Jerry Garcia had on various songs, SAVE your money and fuckin BUY the mu tron.. or at least dont buy any envelope filter pedal under $200 because the envelope pedal is one of a kind and well worth the money for the tone and sound, and once you realize that you'll understand why you shouldn't waste your money on pedals like these. Your sooo much better off saving up as long as you need to, to buy a *good* envelope filter pedal. (check out the Emma pedal or Mu Tron III)If you like making weird techno/rediculously distorted noises to entertain yourself and would never be useful in a real song that people would enjoy listening to, this may be the pedal for u!

Not What I expected

By Bruce Durand

from Idaho

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

Needs to come with a power adapter
Received this pedal in anticipation for some great fun, but soon found out that it was not at all what it was all cracked up to be. I had read some reviews but you can't always believe what you read. Anyway I received this and found that I also needed to purchase a power adapter, not included, to make this more efficent. It has a 9 volt battery that will last only a couple or hours at the most. When I ordered this, I did not see anywhere that I needed to order a power adapter. Therefore I returned this item for credit. On the other note of this item, it seemed to work as discribed, but it is definitly a lead guitar toy, not a chord playing musician.

Great Fun

By ianmoptop

from Edmonds, WA

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

Do you ever tire of the same old fuzz, distortion and filter tones? Do you ever feel as though you have all your effect pedal-bases covered and there's still something missing? Do you ever find yourself with a great, driven sound but you wish it were a little more screwy, wild, and generally messed up? Do not despair, O you sonic seekers! This little green box has more nastily awesome tones up its input jack than you could shake a big muff at! I plugged it in and just played, stream-of-consciousness, while my drummer turned the dials. In five minutes, out jumped that "Money for Nothing", heavily overprocessed squawk. I found myself writing riffs just so i could play them through this. It's not really a synth or a wah, but a wicked fuzzbox with elements of both.

One of my beloved pedals

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

I bought this on a whim. I really like green, so there you go. but then I messed with what you can do on this thing and it blew my mind. I play in a progressive heavy rock three piece, so guitar has to be huge and this pedal gives me the boost in my crazy psychadelic breakdowns to pull it off. Really an amazing pedal, i have a fm4 as well and this pedal is still at the front of my board, get it!

Digitech Synth Wah

By stratosaurus

from N Dallas TX

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

This pedal is probably amusing for some not running a complex board. I mainly was looking for an envelope filter and it is not so easy to find a good one. You cna get some weird synth passages out of this and it has that Digitech Ya voice. Work w it tweak it an you get some cool musical items. I run a complex board and this unti has to be comfined to its polyphonic wah triggers, I use mode 1 dark, controls on 9:00 gets a deep dark hard wah trigger which is useful on my ODs or gains. By the way this needs to go up front for proper triggering. There are better units no doubt but this can do some unique things. I find its envelope trigger to be as good as anything else.

Pretty sweet, BUT...

By guitarplayer145

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

I Just picked this pedal up on a whim. I'd been looking for an env flt. for a bit now but, didn't want to drop serious dough on my first filter pedal (yet far from the first FX unit). I get down on a lot of electronic IDM and really spacey acid sounds, so dirt is a must. This pedal is by no means a beautiful sounding pedal, it'll make your tone harsh and resonant. For me, that's awesome, for most I don't think so. If your goal is to make your guitar stand out and ring some ears this is your unit, definitely not for tone purists. It does have a distinctive digital tone to it as well. Probably not the pedal u would shape your sound around, but will do plenty of trippy sweeping and cutting FX along with the 3 synth generators in side. Try pairing it with other MOD and pitch FX as well.

ARG!!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

Ik, I buy this, take it home and love it. I play it for two days and the sound blows my mind. It sounds just like late 70s Jerry Garcia. Then, the third day, I'm practicing for an upcoming gig( 2 days away)then the pedal just stops working. It goes crazy, the light turns on and off or just on, or just off. I try everthing to fix it nothing works. I have to return it, now I have no idea what im going to do for the gig I have in a DAY!!

Really Unique Pedal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

This pedal is unique. The sounds are cool. I like the color too. It is a great pedal just to experiment with and mess around. Same with any pedal; get a power adapter. The batteries don't last very long. I recommend this pedal to anyone who likes to make unique crazy sounds.

Digitech Synth-Wah

By stratosaurus

from N Dallas TX

Comments about DigiTech XSW Synth Wah Envelope Filter Pedal:

I have hads this unit for a while, I got when I wanted to refind a good envelope filter sound like the old days. I have gone though all the settings many times and I came back to the standard model 1 using Type 1Sens: 9:00, Control: 10:00, Range: 12:30, this is polyphonic and gives a great heavy vocal wah sound on single or humbuckler, it can sound like Trower's My Love or anything you can dream up. Great Pedal to experiment with or use as a stable well defined and repeatable filter effect. Digitech has superior sound if you just learn to tweak and can play with some finese.
