Delay effects have evolved over time from using inordinately long cables and manipulating tape in the studio to analog bucket brigade units to tiny stompboxes that provide infinitely tweakable digital reflections.
For a long time, though, musicians were stuck with having multiple delay pedals on their board, each one getting a very specific delay sound, whether it was analog, tape simulation or digital. If you had an album or a live set that called for multiple delay sounds, your board was inevitably going to have to grow with delays.
The Boss DD Giga Delay aims to solve that problem, providing all the delay options most players would ever want within one standalone unit. The Boss DD Giga Digital Delay features the hardy construction typically associated with Boss units in a twin pedal system with a digital display a highly useful feature live or in a bedroom. This compact, bulletproof construction gives it an edge when compared to other delay station board monsters such as the Line 6 DL4.
With smaller construction, however, comes an intimidating cluster of buttons, knobs and lights. It only takes ten minutes tooling around with one, though, to discover that the setup is intuitive and elegant.
Aside from choosing the output level or toggling between memory or tap tempo to get things set, most of the time the DD can be used in a set-it-and-forget-it way. It helps to think of this pedal in two halves. The left half of the pedal can act on its own as a standard delay pedal, with eleven different types of delay to choose from.
The knobs above the left side will be familiar to anyone who has ever used a delay pedal before: tone, level volume , feedback blend and mode selector. If you wanted to, you could use the left side of the DD as its own standalone unit. The right half is all about accessing memory presets and setting tap tempo. The right footswitch functions either as a memory preset toggle or tap tempo.
There are four memory presets you can program in by dialing in the settings and holding the red Write button. The Select button toggles between the four memory slots.
The only other control on the right side is the Delay Time knob, which admittedly pairs more with the left side of the pedal. You can choose between manually dialing in the delay time with this knob, or setting it via tap tempo with the buttons under the digital display.
Let's just take a look at the rundown of their names and then dive into a few of the less self-explanatory modes. Here they are:. The strangest feature here is the Twist, essentially amounting to a sped-up and slowed down whirr reminiscent of a cartoon UFO taking off or landing. The Warp provides an infinite repeat for a great drone effect and a mechanical, computerized feel. The other modes here are delay pedal stalwarts that most will be familiar with. These two high-fidelity recreations might justify the cost of the pedal on their own, given the market prices for used versions of those units.
The DD has 23 seconds of loop time, while the DL4 only has 14 seconds. The DD also has one more memory pre-set spot than than DL4, and can record tap tempos while turned off which the DL4 cannot do.
Perhaps most importantly, though, the Boss DD takes up far less pedalboard space and costs slightly less. Click here to learn more about the Line 6 DL4 and compare prices. The Strymon Timeline is an altogether different beast, costing four times as much as the Giga Delay and caters to a different type of user. While the Boss DD is great for those who have a few known delays they want to always have on hand, the Strymon Timeline is more of studio-quality unit with incredibly fine-grained adjustability, begging hours of exploration and dialing in to create new and unique delay types.
While incredibly powerful and useful, the Timeline is also something some players don't need and don't want to pay for.

Boss DD GigaDelay. This is easily the most complicated single pedal entry we've made into the wiki so far. The DD can be a simple pedal; but if you want to get into the details, it can also be a rather complicated pedal. So this wiki page is written in such a way so as to split the simple from the complicated, and as a result, it might be a good bit longer as well.
