    I need to use a DD-20 setting with a very short delay time, maximum feedback and 100% wet. The problem is that when I turn it off, it continues forever because of seamless switching (I presume). I can make it stop by changing various knob settings but that's not very practical. Does anyone have any ideas for solving this?

    I thought about connecting to the B output and switching between A & B to get dry/wet but then if I want to switch back to wet later in the song (I do) the old wet signal will still be there.

    Any clues?

    Hi there,

    I guess you could put it in a bypass looper of some sort. That way you can either utilise the delay trails or turn the delay off dead like you want. I know it might not be ideal for you but its the only way I can think of. I'm not sure if there is a way to turn off this feature within the pedal itself - could be wrong though.

    I dont have my DD20 on me so i can't double check, but i think if you save your setting as a preset and then switch TWO presets later (ie move from bank 1 to 3), your delay will stop.... (but then you'd have to worry about your other preset's settings).

    i could be wrong though.... i just seem to recall something funky happening when switching multiple banks...

    just press the right button twice, the trails will stop from the original patch. You could set up patch 1 with the one you want, and then patch 3 with no delay.

    Thanks for the replies. It looks as though the best I can do is to change patches twice. I'm off to practise dancing. :worried
