OVERVIEW

Get sweet, natural feedback when you want it.

The DigiTech FreqOut Natural Feedback Creator allows you to get sweet, natural feedback at any volume, with or without distortion. The FreqOut automatically identifies the harmonic content of your chords or single notes and then “encourages” user-selectable harmonics to feedback. It sounds full and natural, just like a live amp at ear-splitting volume, but without the permanent hearing loss.

The FreqOut is perfect for situations where volume must be controlled like in the studio, with in ear monitors, or low-volume performance and practice. However, the FreqOut can also be used at gig volume to focus out-of-control feedback on a preferred harmonic at any stage position. The FreqOut also has adjustable onset, level, dry kill, latching or momentary operation, true bypass, and a rugged road-tough steel chassis.

The DigiTech FreqOut uses advanced pitch detection technology to identify the harmonic content of your signal and help certain frequencies to feedback. Control over the feedback harmonic, the onset speed, and level, allows you to tailor the feedback to sound completely natural and musically appropriate. The footswitch can be set to activate feedback creation either momentarily, for quick temporary feedback, or latching to turn it on and let it roar. A dry-kill switch allows you to eliminate your dry guitar or bass signal to achieve trippy, synth-like tones.

FEATURES
  • Natural feedback at any volume
  • User selectable harmonic
  • Separate Onset and Gain controls
  • Selectable momentary or latching
  • Dry Kill

    Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

    I would not recommend using this on stage. The response time is too long to be able to use in songs such as dazed and confused when you need the effect right away and then need to stop the effect to hit another note immediately to get another feedback note. It is fun to play with in house . Also you can only do 1 note at a time .i.e. you have to wait until the 1st feedback note completely dies out before you can hit another note with feedback. It doesn't work if you hit a power chord... Hopefully in the future they will solve those problems. Also trying to use the foot switch would be hard to do if you had to switch it on and off quickly to get the feedback effect for multiple notes

    Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

    I am using the Line6 Helix direct to FOH for most of the work I do. Until recently my only way to get feedback from my guitar was to place a powered wedge in front of me, facing my guitar, and try to set it at the correct volume so I could get feedback when I wanted it (and sometimes when I didn't lol). While this pedal doesn't completely replace that setup, it does give a lot more flexibility in conjunction with what I'm already using. A few points to consider are:

    1) It does NOT add sustain to a note, just feedback. It sustains only as long as the guitar you're using does. When the guitar note dies, so does the feedback effect, which can sound pretty artificial. You can work around this by putting the pedal after a compressor in your chain, but unfortunately that is not an option in some of my presets that are full of effect blocks already.

    2) The buffer. This pedal has a pretty drastic effect on my tone when I'm not using it in momentary/true bypass mode. Granted, the Helix has an automatic input impedance detector, so that could be part of the problem. Nonetheless I didn't expect it to have that much of an impact. I prefer the momentary switching, so it's not a dealbreaker for me. Also, with momentary switching engaged, you can release the switch before sliding off of a note and avoid the "slide whistle" effect.

    3) The harmonics. You get to choose EITHER a single type of feedback (octave, fifth, major third, octave below), OR natural high/natural low for some randomization of the effect. The natural high would be my go-to choice if it didn't occasionally still create a sub-harmonic (octave below) effect, which I NEVER want. I play one particular song where I want octave above feedback on some notes and fifth above on others, which is not possible. For the price of this pedal I can't expect "intelligent realtime control" of that kind of function though.

    It does 80% of what I need, so 4 stars, hope this helps!

    Cool effect but whats up with no power supply!

      Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

      Great effect, natural sounding feedback at whisper volumes if desired. for the $$ higher price and since it needs a uncommon power demands ( beyond your typical boss pedal) inclusion of a power supply is in order (come on Digitech - lame!). It needs a 300ma supply so if you only have 100 ma outlets on your power brick or Boss wall wart then it won't work. Make sure you order the power supply with the pedal or go buy a visual sound one spot to provide the juice.

        Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

        This is an interesting and fun effect. I have no had much time with it yet but being able to turn feedback on with the tap of a switch is cool. I like the momentary mode so that you can enhance you phrases with feedback but it is not always on. I need to spend more time with it. I feel that I have only just begun to learn its capabilities.

          Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

          I'll be honest... I bought this on a whim after watching Pete Thorn do a demo for it. I can generally get all the feedback I need in a live situation, but this thing puts a little bit more "control" in your hands. You'll probably need to tweak around on it to find the sweet spot for the sustain (it can mysteriously drop out from time to time). The best use I've found for it live, so far, is using it with a clean tone - it latches on to some of the frequencies when you are picking and produces some great ethereal sounds. Bottom line - no, it's not one of those "must have" pedals for your setup, but if you like to experiment around with sound, this thing adds a nie touch.

          Disappointed

          Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

          Hooked it up on my VooDoo Pedal Power Board and couldn't even get the thing to turn on. I did not want to add a separate power supply to my board just for that so I took it back. I wouldn't have used it that much anyway.

          Comments about DigiTech FreqOut Frequency Dynamic Feedback Generator Pedal:

          If you'd like feedback without the volume, raunch and noise, this will serve you. However, it is not natural. Natural feedback evolves and has a life of it's own. This will just hang on to the last note and shift it at a fixed increment.
