Yea. This update was more or less to bring the old guard up to parity with the new stuff like Zelzah.I have the Zelzah which seems to have many (if not all) of the same features internally and externally as these “V2” pedals.
One great thing about the Zelzah compared to for example my DIG v1 is that I can daisy chain the Zelzah from my power supply (Cioks DC7). If I daisy chain the DIG I get this very annoying high pitched hiss. However there’s no problem with the Zelzah.
I know it’s not advised to daisy chain digital and/or time-based pedals. Just wanted to mention this one benefit people may find appealing with these new ”V2” pedals.
To my ears the Zelzah sounds great. I got it when it first arrived and I’m still using it. (I’m not a phaser expert and have not used many other phaser pedals.)
The similarities with the ”V2” pedals and the Zelzah I was referring to include:
- stereo input switch on the back,
- “premium JFET analog front end”,
- 480MHz* ARM Superscalar processo (*”V2” pedals have 520Hz),
- “ultra low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/Aconverters”,
- 32-bit floating point processing,
- 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response,
- exact same size and power requirements.
Zelzah though has one thing I cannot abide, and that's a signal interruption when engaging the effect. It also engages on releasing the switch rather than pressing, which I dislike quite a bit as well. I sincerely hope nothing like that has been introduced to these V2's.
