Digital Distortion

Future-proofing distortion pedals. The main talking point of the Boss DS-1X is its digital 'multi-dimensional processing' which means it operates in a radically different way from most overdrive/distortion pedals. Whereas most distortion circuits are fully analog, digitally processing the signal allows the DS-1X to do far more, like adding natural compression.

This compression gives everything a smooth edge and gives a polished outputted sound. This suits the tone choices of this pedal, Boss wanted to make a modern distortion so treble and bass frequencies are emphasised over midrange here, coupled with having a touch-sensitive dynamic response and the natural compression and you can be sure everything you put through this pedal comes out studio-ready; the DS-1X does all the hard work for you.

None of this is at the detriment of tone, however, with the DS-1X still offering the stupidly hot, gritty textures the standard DS-1 is famous for. Switching to digital simply allows extra features to be implemented like touch-sensitivity for superior responsiveness, and additional clarity by processing different frequency bands separately. Get up to date, get the Boss DS-1X.
