The Korg SDD-3000 is one of those effects that has retained it's appeal even after decades of newer product coming after it. The Korg SDD-3000 digital delay has remained so popular that Korg themselves have re-introduced it in a guitar pedal form, as it was guitarists that fell in love with this very capable delay.
The Korg SDD-3000 is the first affordable digital delay that provides programmability – sound effects created with the front panel controls can be memorized and instantly recalled whenever needed. The built-in microcomputer has a memory capacity of 9 different effects.
Much more than a simple delay unit, the Korg SDD-3000 has a complete modulation section with triangle wave. square wave. random, and envelope function. These can create unique doubling echo and flanging effects as well as bizarre pitch bends and Doppler effects. Sound quality is excellent, as shown by such outstanding specifications as: delayed frequency response of 10Hz. to 17KHz, +0 5dB to -3dB THD of 0.03%; and effect dynamic range of 94dB.
Independent 4-position high and low filters produce considerable tonal variations in the delay time, creating a wide range of different effects. Delay time is continuously adjustable (at low and high speeds) in 1msec (0.001 second) steps from 0msec to a maximum lone delay of 1023 msec (1.023 seconds) without sound quality degradation. Two types of stereo outputs provide exceptional versatility, with the choice of normal or inverted phase characteristics.
The is extremely useful for many kinds of recording and PA applications that require uncompromising professional quality. For live performance use, the Korg SDD-3000 is equipped with numerous control inputs, including foot switch (PS01, S-2, etc.) operated control over ‘Hold’ (for endless repeats) effect Bypass, and Up/Down program switching. Delay time can also be modulated by an external control signal such as the MS-01 or MS-04 foot controllers.
