Frequently Asked Questions
What's kind of MIDI cables do I need?
Before Digit serial 475, Beebo serial 338: Type B, 3.5 MM TRS. This is the same ring active pin out as Chase Bliss.
Digit serial 475, Beebo serial 338 or later: Type A, 3.5 MM TRS. This is the MIDI standard pin out.
No MIDI box / etc is needed as the pedal has opto isolation on board and midi thru.
What is the difference between Beebo and Digit?
Physically only the colour. Inside they are the same hardware. You can switch firmware between the two by pressing Switch to Beebo / Digit in settings.
Is there a waiting list currently?
No. They go on sale for pre-order in batches. I'm making them as fast as possible but getting parts fast enough and then building complicated pedals takes time.
Which files do I need to update the firmware?
All the ones that end in .deb in the firmware folder need to be downloaded and put on the USB flash drive.
Can I capture my own real spaces and use them in Digit.
Yes. The recorded IRs need to be 48 kHz, any bit depth max 3.5 seconds, though trim them to as short as possible to improve performance. There's a lot of videos on YouTube about how to capture vintage gear or real spaces.
How do I switch presets from a MIDI program change?
To change a preset with a program message, press the floppy disk icon to get to the preset screen. Tap set list and add preset here. The number next to them is what program change message you should send to change to that preset. This is also the order the foot switch pairs with D and E will step through them.
What power supply do I need?
I use and recommend the Strymon Ojai & Zuma, and the Cioks Future Power series (DC7 / Eventide Powermax) for multiple pedals. You need a 9V centre negative power supply with a boss style connector. It needs to supply at least 500mA. It needs to be exactly 9V, but can provide more than 500mA, for example 9V 1amp is fine.
