    Anyone know how to disable the temp LED?

    The noise it produces drives me nuts when I'm in high gain. Thanks

    Tempo LED.


    So far as I know, they only make that noise when they're being starved for current. A higher capacity power supply might help.

    exactly. i run the DD-20 with its own power supply and its noise free and sounds better than when daisy chained with other pedals.

    AWESOME!! That was it!

    I plugged it in straight with a boss and now its silent!!!

    Now that makes me wonder how that one spot could be effecting my other pedals..:confused:


    Thanks SO much for the help!!

    it's a great pedal :)

    I use mine with a godlyke and don't have this problem (I also use 9 other pedals). Enjoy it!

    actually, that wasn't a recommendation. From what I know, the Onespot and Godlyke are very similar. I think it's probably a quirk of our various rigs.

    Sorry for the confusion

    no problem! i run the rest of my stuff with a godlyke powerall and the DD-20 has its own dedicated power supply.

    i find the sound quality is audibly better when its got its own power supply.

    have fun, its a deep and great sounding pedal!

    Anyone else notice the dd-20 behaves very badly when the batteries run out? Mine reboots over and over and over. It's annoying.
