If you open a digital delay and find trimmer pots, you can sometimes get
interesting things to happen.  I've got an RDS-8000 which is a rack unit
and from a later generation,  but it has three adjustments inside.  The
most interesting one appears to control the sampling frequency.  If you
turn it, you can adjust the delay down to a very low-fi, very long delay.
When you sample something at a normal rate and turn it down, it becomes a
long, grinding ambient loop.  If you find an interesting adjustment, you
can cut out the trimmer and reconnect the wires to a new pot installed on
the front panel.  I got the idea from reading about people having good luck
with early Ibanez delays.  Has anyone had one of the Boss digital delay
pedals apart?
